I signed a contract with Green Ivy via Jay Caliento back on January 31, 2017 and never received my book that they contracted to publish. All communications and transactions were done via telephone and Internet. Apparently the business closed without any communication...

I am the personal assistant of a publisher who was scammed by Green Ivy. He is an 83-year-old man whose life dream is to have as many of his books published before he dies. He paid Green Ivy $25,000 to get 8 of his books published. They did publish three of them, but...

I hate hearing about your situation with Green Ivy. I am a first time author and my book was published by Green Ivy. It has been one year and no statement or accounting of how...

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...

Green ivy is out of business. Their phone number no longer works and their website has expired.

I didn't like
  • Busness is a fraud
  • That they ignore most phone calls from thire author
  • Complete disregard of their authors and contract

I am convinced that Jay Caliendo, along with Michelle Mathews and other Green Ivy employees scammed ALL of the writers who entered into a contract with them. Those few so-called favorable reviews are fake. But it is not enough to complain about this company and the...

I paid Green Ivy to publish my book. After the final payment I couldn't get in touch with anyone. Jay Caliendo stole my money and has not been decent enough to call me. I have a lawyer and we plan on suing Jay Caliendo for breech of contract. I trusted him and he...
