It’s a familiar tale. Entrepreneur sets up publishing company. Publishing company charges fees, but it’s not a vanity publisher–certainly not! Authors are just investing in their own success. Authors obtain proofs riddled with mistakes and finished books so produced they may be unsalable badly. Some receive no books at all. Refunds, if guaranteed, show up never; court judgments, if levied, are paid never. The entrepreneur gets aggressive with authors who complain or simply doesn’t respond to emails and phone calls.
Finally the business collapses and disappears, or the dog owner offers it or exchanges it to an authorized who refuses responsibility for previous mistakes. Authors are left high and dry. How have I discussed this often? Well, here’s another example: Julie McGregor’s Australia-based publishing services company, Love of Books Brisbane, a.k.a.
Books Publishing Services Australia. According to the article in the Sydney Morning Herald, McGregor has apparently defrauded multiple clients to the melody of four and even five figures. 12,000 since 2013 and as recently as the past due 2016 to entities including Love of Books Brisbane and Books Publishing Services Australia.
The projects have ranged from historical research and commercial fiction to travel guides. In August 2016 4000 and has not noticed a word from McGregor since she was promised the refund. At that right time, she had not been advised that McGregor was a bankrupt. And that’s not all. 6000 to McGregor’s business, Love of Books Brisbane, to print out 1000 copies of recipe favorites. Many of McGregor’s writers have received judgments from the Queensland Civil Claims Tribunal, although only one author has been paid (and only partially). Publishing isn’t McGregor’s only scams. November 2017 In, she was convicted of an elaborate scheme to draw out money from local businesses.
She was handed a nine-month suspended sentence for the actual prosecution said was a “calculated, deceptive activity, not once but three times”. In 2016, McGregor moved the Love of Books website and client list to Ian Lewis, who is currently operating the business under his own business quantity and a somewhat different name: Love of Books Australia-Wide.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Lewis has disclaimed responsibility for reimbursing McGregor’s clients. Although Writer Beware never received issues or reports about McGregor’s company, I did have my very own encounter with her. In 2015, she delivered me an email with the upset (and mis-spelled) subject matter collection: URGETN ATTENTION REQUESTED. I give attention when asked always, particularly when it is URGETN. Well, that wasn’t super-helpful, but I did what she suggested, and typed her name and URL into Google to see what I could see.
I thought it might be good to let her know very well what I’d uncovered. I wasn’t amazed after I didn’t get an answer. UPDATE 3/11/18: Wow, that was fast. I got home yesterday evening from an event to find two email messages threatening me with legal action: one from McGregor, and the other from Ian Lewis–purportedly, at least. Verbal signs claim that both emails were written by the same person responsible for the posts on this blog specialized in extending McGregor’s statements that she, in fact, is the sufferer. UPDATE 3/5/19: Julie McGregor and Ian Lewis have become, very, very mad at me. Since I put this post online, they’ve delivered me numerous furious and/or threatening emails and adopted false personas to touch upon social media about how awful I am/Writer Beware is. Author Beware of Writer Beware. I’m reproducing its inaugural post below because I’m speculating it’ll soon disappear.
