Austin Macauley are a scam

I was so excited when I saw today that Austin Macauley offered me a co-publishing contract. But when we (my husband and I) looked in to it…we discovered that they are a Vanity Press–ripping their authors off by asking for large amounts of money up-front and taking their copyright. Can’t believe I almost fell for it again (similar thing happened when I submitted Medar to publishers–that time I got offered a contract with XLibris).

So tonight I uploaded my e-book and print-on-demand files to Amazon. Need 72hrs for them to get approved and then they will be available for pre-order.

I feel like I just had a near escape.

  1. I just received an email from them as well. I am glad I typed in Macauley Publishers and saw your feedback. I had another one from a “hybrid” company which are also scams. Thank you for putting that out there, I would have fallen for it as well.
