What should you do?
I am extremely vexed over a certain publisher (not gonna name names yet) but I am one step away from exposing this editor.
I threatened him a second time, within a year's time and the book still isn't done. I gave him till the 15th of April and if he doesn't I am going straight to Victoria Strauss on Preditors and Editors.
It's been a full year and nothing but a headache, AND I had to pay for this mess.
Very poor communication involved on this editor's part.
NEVER answers a lot of my questions.
Keeps dragging this on and on.
Shows me the crapped up pdf...with massive grammar errors, that I keep telling him to fix.
Won't show me the cover.
Horrible editting on his company's part.
Bad illustrations that I had to convince myself an okay on.
very vague contract.
and the worst part of this all is, I am afraid IF and when the book ever does get done, I won't get paid for it. He has shown nothing but unprofressionalism.
Should I keep waiting?
I said till the 15th, but I have a feeling he still won't even reply.
SHould I start investigating how and where to go for this mess?
Should I just bail out of this headache now while I have a chance?
PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT and I repeat NOT Eternal Press. This is a very different publisher. I've been dealing with quite a few of them lately and I will say, Eternal Press is the very best.
If anyone has any idea as to how to guide me with this, I would appreciate it.
