Sandy Campbell, owner


COMPLAINT INFORMATION:

Sandy had contracted me to write 2 different Ebooks for her clients as a ghostwriter, meaning I would have no association with the work after submitting it-not my name,or any rights to it. I agreed to be paid in 2 separate payments for each Ebook, which was to be $150 upon completion of half of the Ebook, and $150 upon final completion of the Ebook. I have received 3 checks from Sandy for $150 within about 7 business days upon completion, but I have yet to receive my final check for the 2nd Ebook I wrote for her. I have tried contacting her,but she has seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth! I have called,left messages, sent emails...and nothing.




I just want to be paid my final check as outlined in our contract in the amount of $150!!!

Complaint Dates: 9/13/2005,9/19/2005,9/27/2005

Edited to delete personal contact info.

When did you last have contact with her? Perhaps she was affected by the hurricanes.

You ghosted an entire book for $300?

Was wondering about the same...

Hopefully it was some tiny gift books or something, for that price...?

No doubt...that's more the price of a magazine article.
I don't know about that. I was paid $400 for an 800-word (+100-word sidebar) article for a regional mag.

I'd still be more likely to sell a magazine article for $300 than an entire book. =)
Oh, that's what you meant! I misunderstood. Yes, so would I.
