As someone trying to write professionally, you should know that “$300.00 hundred dollars” is an atrocious way to use grammar. You’ve essentially said, “three hundred hundred dollars dollars.” You should use just, “$300.”

Before trying to publish another book, work on your writing. You’ve written enough words to fill three paragraphs but didn’t use a single punctuation mark that would end a sentence.

It’s funny how you complain about misspellings and typos your editors have made while saying “typo's,” which is possessive, not plural. You should have said, “typos.”

NAJAFLI is AuthorHouse and Author Solution and every other company bought? The face behind mask sold legion demon in the skull to north america public library e book down load system for $2 dollar profit per sell for lval's legion.

No real contract. If try to use old contract. Problem? Original account was set.

Failed to pay gary thomas royalty over 4 or 5 year period. Sure they made a mistake. No call list? Really people.

Why? They broke contract never paid em and selling title as e book and soft cover book. Settlement? Why?

Oh em more than 5 or 75 dollars. The book is selling overseas for $60 dollars.

I have seen what AuthorHouse / 1st Books did with a lot of my contacts. It's why I took a lot of them into the short form and ushered them into the anthology fold. I knew too many of these authors and one being a personal friend in Chicago who published "A Dark...
