(From my email to PA)>>I am aware there are three prices at which I might purchase my publication rights back from you: $99, $149, and $299.
(PA's reply)No, that is false. The price is $299. Perhaps you are referring to a special we ran a long time ago, just like other companies run specials. If you do not want to pay the fee, your contract remains in place.
Thank you for your email.
Please follow the link that is in our previous email to revert the rights for your book.
Have a Great Day!
One final thought: If this was fiction, wouldn't PA be all over this with a libel suit, as would be their right in such a case? Perhaps that's in the works, but PA's non-response is interesting.
There are AW members who are published by PA and HAPPY to be so.
I do not lie. I kid you not. I want to cry for them.
Of course, they are newly-published and prefer not to read threads like this.
Can't even lead some horses to water ...
About presenting the letter with letter head, i remind you that it was an email and not a letter i received by post. I posted it as i got it through my email.
My question to those who find this hard to believe..why do you doubt this kind of correspondance from a scoundrel publisher
PA or else will not claim this as theirs.
They will surely say it was not them and that the letter is fabricated surely.
They already got you for 7 years and the only way out is to pay for the rights and pay a good lawyer. Either way they win.
Wrong. The ONLY way PA wins is if the writer stops writing.
I'm the one who believed the email to be embellished. As to why you or anyone else would do this, the answer is easy: Frustration. With little or no recourse, it's not unusual for someone to produce something provocative in order to create outrage.Well, i posted this because i thought it would bring something new here, as if we don't know who PA is right. To go and make this up, why???? Do you think i need the attention or do i need to remind who PA is again???
Says you.Got no time to waste on Support Emails.
You're free to believe what you like. Facts are, a good friend of mine was visited by the police who were called out in the evening based on a call from PA. I agree that it is a fantastic story, but PA was very unhappy with his Pink Pony sting.Also what makes me laugh..PA will sue me and you for this or that. You act as if PA is the KGB or something. Let me tell you one thing people: i think that people who get suspected men come to them in the middle of the night and threaten them because of their books is super fiction but this fantasy has managed to find crediblity a long time ago
Not an unreasonable question, and no one has the answer other than they might have worried about the truth spreading too far, thus threatening their enterprise..Why would a publisher waste time doing that.They already got you for 7 years and the only way out is to pay for the rights and pay a good lawyer. Either way they win.
