Complaints about FastPencil / Infinity Publishing!

Q –

Hi Angela,

Just wondering what you know about FastPencil? Infinity just aligned with it and I can’t determine if it is a good thing.



A –

I researched FastPencil.  gives them only 6.7 out of 10.

An author on there was complaining that shipping 1 book (paperback) cost her $14 in shipping costs alone. You can read more complaints about them in the comments under that article.

I also found this on RipOffReport:

FastPencil Inc. Fastpencil preys off of budding writers, steals royalties, refuses refunds

FastPencil has a F rating at the Better Business Bureau.

There are 3 reviews of FastPencil on Amazon and all of them give the firm only 1 star.

And, you might want to avoid Infinity Publishing, too. They, too, have an F rating at the Better Business Bureau. Read more complaints about Infinity Publishing HERE .
