Review by M J.2 years ago
Eber & Wein Publishing are a vanity press that prey on unsuspecting victims (writers) who are new to the world of "publishing" (printing & distribution of books). They tricked me into sending them a couple of my poems by telling me they saw my poems on facebook & would love review some of my work at their website. They write back telling me to enter their contest. I did. They said I was runner up. But didn't win. I was ok with that.
Then I get another letter stating my poetry would be in their books. I asked if I would get royalties because my poetry is copywriten and under a publisher associated with ASCAP, BMI & Sound Exchange & I understand "print royalties". But they said "No". So I said "You can't use my poems if I cant get paid." They turn around write me saying they're using it anyways & use my poem after I said "No". I write them saying not to use my work. Then they send me another letter saying they are re-entering me in their contest again without my permission, again. So I assume it will be used in more books again? There are also many complaints against them across the web and some complaints speak of outright theft of funds from consumers. Not just poets. Links below.
