Author sues 2 Moon Press

21 June 2013

From The Battle Creek Enquirer:

At least one author who published books through the now-defunct 2 Moon Press has taken legal action against the company.

Albion resident Bernard Zeitler filed a complaint last week in Calhoun County’s 10th District Court, listing both former CEO Don Semora and the self-publishing company’s most recent owner, Melinda Lundy, as defendants. He said 2 Moon Press “took payment and left without providing services” outlined by the contract and failed to communicate the progress of the work it was paid to do. Zeitler also said he has yet to receive royalty payments.

. . . .

The 2 Moon Press, once housed in downtown Marshall before briefly moving to Olivet, is being investigated by the Marshall Police Department after it abruptly shut down last month without notifying its clients. Authors have claimed unpaid royalties, unfulfilled book orders and breaches of contracts. Some have also requested help in obtaining the company’s electronic copies of their manuscripts.

Authors have also said they are running into trouble having their books and electronic versions removed from online retailers’ websites. They have created a group page on Facebook, “2 Moon Press Authors’ Group,” to communicate with each other.

. . . .

Authors say they were notified through email of the ownership change, but never received word of a shutdown.

  1. I’m so sorry authors have to deal with this type of thing. But I really love, and am so impressed, when I hear about authors standing up for themselves!

    I hope this author, and any others who sue, prevail and get what is due them!
