All I can begin with is...oh dear :-( I was seduced by an advert to have my book made into an ebook and because I am quite a positive type of person, encouraged the chap to create my ebook and when it was finished...I didn't like it! Now he wants almost £400 for an ebook I could have created myself with pictures that look straight out of clipart. I tried to tell him that as writers, if an editor doesn't like our work, we don't threaten to take him to the small claims court if he doesn't pay up, we simply try again or try another editor. In our line of work, it is the nature of the beast. So, as you guessed it, he wants to take me to the small claims court for non payment. He doesn't have my address though and what gets me is his advert said he could do the ebook for £150! Hmmm, guess he didn't want to mention any extras! I'm not paying him, incidentally, on principle. It took him no time at all to put it together (and our faithful writing mag tells us exactly how to do the same) and was only worth £150 in the end if that!
