More Complaints About The Poor Editing At WCP

"I looked up some reviews on my publisher, Whiskey Creek Press (I should have done this before I signed the contract) and I found out a few things.

Usually the complaints are that the authors receive poor sales in return and that the publisher tends to have a lack of unresponsiveness and that their editors focus more on the romance/erotic romance stories rather than anything else...

The company still pisses me off though, as that is still no fucking excuse.  They should still try to make sure that they did the best that they can since they offered to publish it... with mistakes like these, they will diminish sales...

I can't really do anything, even if I wanted them to change all of the mistakes that they've made to my book, that's going to cost me to fix them.  We'll see what happens.  Either way, the book will still be available for sale through Amazon and Barnes and Noble for anyone who wants to read it if you don't mind some of the errors, otherwise while I'm at work tonight, I'm going to fix the copy that I have of all the grammatical errors that I've caught so far."

This doesn't surprise me one bit. Terrible editing,(are you listening Marsha Bristoe?) ignoring emails, poor sales...it's all par for the course. This is one shoddy outfit.

Gawd I feel so sorry for the authors caught up in this snake pit. I hope they hire a lawyer and file a class action lawsuit.

Wow, this must be the most hated publisher since Publish America. (ROFL) I daresay they've earned it. They seem like a nasty no-class bunch.

Dave Field has edited all my books and I'm very pleased with the results. It seems that editors vary.

Sorry but the language used puts me off having anything to do with this.

@Margaret Blake

You must be easily offended. What I find much more offensive than a few off-the cuff remarks, is a publisher that rips off its authors, and those who defend it.
