  • Raider publishing New York

    Does anyone know of anybody who has dealings with this publisher?
    My son is autistic and against all odds and prejudice had a book published by this company raider publishing.
    They have taken his money and now wont answer his emails or advertise his book or promote it.
    My son even sent an email on a new acct saying he was another author looking for a publisher, raider publishing were all over him like a rash bombarding him with emails, when my son told them who he was and asked whx they answered this email but not his, they turned nasty and called the uk police accusing him of fraud.
    The police told my son that no laws had been broken,
    But to a young man with autism its quite scary because its stuck in his head and worrying him non stop.
    I want to take action against this company who have taken advantage of my son and need some advice on US law.
    If anyone is interested the book is a sc/fi called the field trip and its written by stephen cheshire.
    Its target audience is teenagers.

    I had to get a plug in here too.

    If anyone can help or point me in the direction of people who can then i would be gratefull.

    I cant stand people or companies who take advantage of the disabled.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this post

      The fact that they asked him for money should tell you everything that you need to know. Real publishers don't ask authors for money. Vanity publishers do but you should avoid them at all costs.

        Unfortunately my son found this out at his cost, luckily it was only about 600.
        He has since found an Australian publisher to publish his book about a zombie outbreak in that country, pity it didn't affect there cricket team though.
        He has a wonderful imagination but unfortunately his written English can let him down, not very good for an author.
        He is a determined young man who has overcome great difficulty in not just having a book published, but by actually writing it in the first place.
        The new publisher is obviously aimed at the Australian market but they are not asking for any money and this time I have looked at the contract.

          Uh oh. Sounds like a "vanity" publisher. Money sent huh? Oh boy.

          Go back and read the fine-print, verrrry carefully.

          Now, who sent the money, and signed anything, you? Potential issue if so. You're his parental guardian. If by some chance he sent money to them and they accepted it etc., and perhaps w/o your knowledge and/or consent, well that's another story. You see where this is going?

          Good luck.

                Raider publishing New York

                Raider publishing is a New York based company and boasts worldwide offices which physically do not exist, usually a phone number redirected to the New York office, which is then redirected to a back room at the ceo's mothers house.
                My son was 24 when he signed the contract without my knowledge, however after reading it I have seen some blatant contradictions by raider publishing, unfortunately my son is not covered by uk law and cannot afford a us solicitor.
                It's a lesson in life got him and a rather upsetting one for him too.
                All I want is people to be aware of this publishing company and if possible to save people from falling into the same trap, and expose the low life scum who ripped of my autistic son.

                    You can possibly try raising money through crowd-sourcing .

                            There is also a facebook group with people who were screwed over by them - I googled the name of the company and this Adam Salviani and a lot of stuff came up.

                              The face book page was set up by my son, I am not a fan of Facebook and didn't know he had started one until recently.
                              Thanks for looking it up though
