It seems to be a common practice with these companies. They need to be held accountable for what they are doing to get people's hard earned money for their own personal gain & shoddy work ethics.

Get a lawyer that handles this type of matter.

Good luck there are many more author's out here that these publishing companies are doing this. Some are being investigated bu the Attorney General Office, for the state they operate in due to complaints from consumers.
