Green Ivy Publishing - Scammed by Green Ivy at the age of 73.
I was also scammed by Green Ivy. My book was published (I paid $3,500 for one book) and I never received an accounting or a check for the books sold. I too sent countless messages to Jay Caliendo and Darleen Havel but to no avail. I am 73 and never believed I was being...

I just found out that they were closed. I had them paid off but then they never reached out to me. I've tried calling them and emailing only to find everything disconnected. Even their website is gone. If there is a lawsuit in the works, I want in on it!

Green Ivy published my book, after having 'lost' it in the art department for seven months. It came out in August of last year. Since that time, I was able to establish contact and order a few copies for myself last year, but since that time......nothing. They do not...

I published my book "Gather Your Tribe" with Green Ivy Publishing a couple of years ago. It was a painful process (like pulling teeth) to actually make it happen, because they rarely return phone calls or emails! My main goal was to get my book out to the public in...
