Welcome to Felixstowe Scribblers

A message from Rochelle has been forwarded here by Vincent at Online Scribblers The authors & poets of www.mandalapress.com (usa) and www.sunrisepublishing.com (usa) have set up their own website in order to fight for justice.


The authors/poets were originally informed that mandala press was a traditional market and after handing over money to "register their work in the USA"; mandala press showed it's true colours.

The authors received excuse after excuse by one of the Directors Donette Smock and her partner Dale Jungk. First, it was personal financial problems which led to the delay in publishing, books which should have been out over 2 years ago are still not printed today. The authors feel very disgruntled due to the constant delay tactics, excuses and untruths however, the final straw was when www.mandalapress.com joined with www.sunrisepress.com (www.sunrisepublishing.com) the excuses began to become threats.

These authors/poets lost their money, their dignity and their dreams all due to an online literary scam. Not only was it a case of most of the authors work never being published, lies and deceipt, but when they began to receive threats from the new partner Scott Putnam in Sunrise publishing, that was the final straw.

You can support these authors or just drop by and see their experience with mandala press & sunrise publishing - it is abhorrant.


This was followed by a communication from Digg that reads:

"Thought you might want to check this out. This is literary fraud with no regrets by the publishers who bullied and threatened their authors/poets..

digg user poppymoore would like to share this story with you:

Small publishing houses have a hard time keeping afloat. We must honour that.
