Message from Jessica:

I just had an interesting call from Litfirepublishing. Have you come across this outfit?

Message from Leigh:

Angela, I received a message from LitFire Publishing. Michelle. She wanted to speak with me about my book – to showcase it in an exhibit. You probably have had other clients receive this call.

Message from Georgette:

Hi Guys, Just to let you know I received a message from LitFire Publishing because they thought my book had great “international potential.” I am not calling them back.

Message from Don:

Hello Angela, I just received a call from a company called “LitFire,” and they say they want to promote my book. What do you know about this company?

Message from Eric:

Hello, I was approached by “Litfire Publishing” about promoting/marketing my book in a few different avenues. Of course this comes with a cost. I was wondering if you had heard of, or know anything about them.

Message from Allan:

Sorry to bother you cause I know you’re swamped, but a company called LitFire called me and offered their advertising “expertise” to promote my new book. I’m not going to do anything with them but I was just curious to know how they knew my new book was coming out. Any thoughts?

Message from Belinda:

A self-publisher called Litfire Press phoned my mom asking for me, wanting to discuss plans for my book, but didn’t give a title. I got the msg from Mom this morning. When I phoned them, they wanted to sell me book marketing services and said they’d gotten my info from BookScout, a third party organization. I haven’t lived with my mom or used her number as mine in 30 years.


Someone using a Litfire.com email address accessed BookLocker.com this week, and partially completed the online form for submitting a manuscript. They wrote the word “test” on it. We looked up the IP address. It’s in the Philippines.

I recognized the company name, and sent them an email with links to NUMEROUS complaints about them posted online. I was going to post those online here but somebody already beat me to the punch so I’ll give credit where credit is due. You can see the list RIGHT HERE.
