DO NOT BUY ANYTHING WITH THE ASPEN MOUNTAIN PRESS
LABEL FROM ANY BOOK SELLER WEB SITE
The Book listed below is being held hostage by
Sandra Hicks the owner of Aspen Mountain Press
She sells Sand Hill Estates The Murders on Amazon.com and
but she has not paid the author a single dime in over a year!
She has never paid the cover artist for her work.
She has never paid the Editor for her work.
She has paid the author little to NO royalties and nothing since
January of 2010.
She holds the contract rights on three sequels to this book but
none of them
have been touched in preparation for Publishing. Why?
Because all of her editors or cover artists have quit.
She didn't pay them.
All of her very talented office staff quit.
She didn't pay them.
No other publisher will accept these books until SANDRA HICKS
signs release of rights back to the Author. She received Emails,
Certified letters, and phone calls.
She refuses to respond to any.
She refuses to publish the books and she refuses to
return them but Charles Wells is not alone.
There are over 40 other writers in the same/similar situation.
Some of them have books out of contract date that are still being
sold by Aspen Mountain and still putting money in her pocket.
Instead of doing the legal and moral thing by closing up shop
and returning contract rights to these authors,
SANDRA HICKS has cut them off.
She does not communicate by email, phone, or certified mail
with any of them.
If another publisher were to start selling ANY of these books,
she will most likely sue them using STOLEN money to hire the
lawyers and try to get MORE money. The law protects her, not
She is using the law to hide behind and steal from writers plus
her actions are depriving the general reading public
of some very popular books out there today.
We here at Wellston Publishing ask the public to
STOP BUYING ANY BOOKS from Aspen Mountain Press.

A Warning About Aspen Mountain Press
I am linking this from a fellow author at Aspen Mountain Press. One of my books, The Detention Demon, is in the same predicament. We are not bitter, unkind authors. We have been wronged. Please read the following statement I am linking from here: http://www.wellstonpublishing.com/
