Now if someone wrote a really inspirational story about some guy in a foreign country named Ben Ghazi, I might be inclined to read it. But, that said, which I just did, I think I’ve had it up to my eye balls in Benghazi stories.
Yes, I do understand the political aspect of continuing to harp on Benghazi. Works for anyone who absolutely is terrified of Hillary Clinton becoming the next president of the Yew United States.
My thinking….if that’s your thing….go for it.
But…..that said, which I just did again, I’m wondering why I can’t seem to find an investigate reporter to take on a company that, (if Hillary Clinton owned) would be all over these scammers like stink on dog doo doo.
The company I am referring to was once known as “Publish America” and is now known as “American Star Books” and most likely will be known as something else once people catch on how they run their scam operation.
A few years ago I bought into their, “Hey pal, we’ll publish your book for nothing, zilch, nada, zippo, and all ya have to do is sign this here contract for seven years and we’ll do the rest for ya.”
Yep…we’ll design your cover, get you all the necessary do dads like your ISBN number and stuff and, get this, promote your book EVERYWHERE!!! How great is THAT!!!!
So, being the innocent naive stupido that I was, I bought into their offer.
My book, “The Covert Chamber,” a 302 page softcover book was now finished and ready to be published. Soooooo. I figured, “Hey, a 302 page softcover book should sell for, say, anywhere from $9.95 to, at the most, $10.95.” Which I thought was quite reasonable.
So what do these idiots price it at? Read my lips……..$29 freakin’ five!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who in their right mind is gonna pay THAT for a 302 page softcover book? I wouldn’t even buy my own book at that ridiculous price. Unless it had some really great nudity stuff in it. Neither did anyone else.
Soooooooo. What has “American Star” books done for me to promote my book over the last 3 years. NOTHING!!!!!!!! Or….zilch, zippo, nada.
Cept……yes……..except for sending me e-mails every single freaking day about how they’re gonna promote my book to God and everyone else in the publishing business.
Um……did I mention for a fee?
Oh yes…..for a mere few dollars. Like anywhere from $99 and up….BUT…….(always a but) no guarantees that when you fork over that money that anyone, other than the guy who cashes your check, will ever know who TF you are or that you wrote a damn book.

Did ya read the #*^%$#!!! disclaimer? If ya did, then ya get my point.
So my challenge to anyone who has investigative reporting skills is this. Why TF aren’t you investigating THESE people on behalf of all authors who have been taken in by these scammers? Get off your damn asses and do something for mankind other than ramming Benghazi down our throats because you can’t think of anything else to write about.
Now I’ve done my part by sending e-mails to “60 Minutes,” (no response) to a fellow reporter on my Facebook page who writes for the Providence Journal, (no response) and to many others, (no responses) WTF!
Do some research. Check out complaints on the web on these people. And go ahead, write a really great expose’.
I restith my case.
