    Post Mystic Moon Press LLC (Jennifer Mitchell)

    Has anyone else out there been stung by the great scam of MMP? As some may have heard, two women opened a publishing business under a false name. I don't know if their intentions were to deceive from day one or not but I do know that they started out pretty good! One of my books went to number six then number three on fiction wise for sixteen weeks! Not bad for an unknown author...but then, no payments. That's when they " killed" off the president, Keely, and it was downhill from there.
    Yes, I was taken royally and never received money for any work. It took me a year to start writing again and have just received my first royalty check from my new publisher. Writing is not an easy career to have but when you love your work...? Anyone else still bruised? I now have three publishers, so my eggs are not all in one basket and self publish with Amazon. Yay! Another REAL check! Keep writing!

    Never mind, you were right, there was no thread on this before. So sorry about that!

    Also, but am I reading correctly that you have the same book with three different publishers and you've self-published it? (Might want to start a topic over in the Self-Publishing or Basic Writing Questions section rather than derail this thread, but this does not sound like a good idea.)

    No prob, I shoulda added all that when I moved the OP from the PA forum last night.

    I'm frankly surprised we didn't already have a thread on it, considering teh dramaz at the time.
