Mini blog to Mr Reggie Byram

 

Mr Reggie Sharp Byram, AKA Reggie Sharp, AKA Reggie Byram, AKA Harry Taylor, AKA Jennifer Jackson, AKA James Lansbury to name but a few, has over the past 10 plus years not been the ethical and upfront owner of many publishing businesses as he would like you to believe. He openly states he has only had two companies.
and formely of:
Random Publishing,
Cromwell Publishing,
1st Century publishing,
Vista House publishing,
and several other publishing houses. This list and his many other comapnies are "NOT ONLY TWO COMPANIES"

UPDATE 24th June 2014: www.calderreview.com appears to be run by Mr Reggie Byram, written by the same duplicated content and in very similar if not the same hand as KILBURNLIT, BEACON VIRTUAL SERVICES, ASHGROVE HOUSE PUBLISHING and possibly more.

UPDATE 20th May 2014: Currently (confirmed) he is going by the name of "GEORGE WILSON" along with several other names (male & female) with his latest Vanity-Venture "KILBURN LIT" "LESEDI PRESS" "BELSIZE BOOKS"
www.kilburnlit.com appears to be quietly dismantling down the same path as Ashgrove House Publishing &  Beacon Virtual Services followed, all within 12 months.

 We are interested in hearing from other authors, we want to hear your side, the problems however small that you experienced, please come forward.
You will not be named or shamed, remember you were the victim. 

If you published your life's work / books between 1996 - 2005/6 through the list of publishing companies named below, please cantact us with your details - contact us email.

Paragon Press Publishing, Random Publishing, Cromwell Publishing, 1st Century publishing, Vista House publishing, M&N Publishing

Mini blog to Mr Reggie Byram

 

 

9th December 2011: Mr Reggie Byram how illiterate some people are, just have a good look through Mr Reggie Byram's website, you will see just how an imbecile deals with the English language. For months I have mentioned many times in this mini Reggie Byram blog about his spelling mistakes, alas he has NOT corrected this.
Take a look at his "About Us" page under the heading of "Writer's Services" this has been that way for weeks, the very first line "We now able offer our services" is not from an educated person but that of an illiterate moron. Surely it should say, the corrections inserted in bold italic "We are now able to offer our services". Mr Reggie Byram, I am offering classes for illiterate imbeciles, I have kept the one and only space open for you so please call, you know you need the help.
Do you notice when he writes about costs etc, he doesn't show signs of spelling mistakes. Anything to do with money and he is "red hot" with his spelling, punctuation and grammar.

If you are a new author looking to be published then it would be safe to say, Mr Reggie Byram doesn't care. If you take your hard work and put it in his hands and you will lose your money and your novel will be tarnished forever.

6th December 2011: Mr Reggie Byram, I have a letter that you sent to your previous business partner, you know, the one where you managed to be a partner for only 5 months when he kicked you out.

Below is a snipet from that letter, please note the highlighted text, these are the very same words he used with me, this man made promises a gentleman's agreement was his words that he knew he would not carry through and then to the authors and his solicitor lied to make me out to be the criminal. Mr Reggie Byram is the criminal. A liar through and through.

Again this is exactly what he told me, then in a fit of mental instability he turned the truth to fit his own goals. He is a liar and a cheat.
 

5th December 2011: Mr Reggie Byram, I have a little story that you may be interested in.

There were one "Ooops Iv'e stood in a lump of...." person and one Gentleman who was highly decorated and highly ranked in a foreign army, I shall for the sake of ease call them person-one and gentleman-one.
Gentleman-one, set up a publishing business in May 2009, financed the business and registered as the director because person-one couldn't be a director after the courts had slapped person-one with a five year "not to be a director clause". After a couple of months person-one started complaining that Gentleman-one wasn't doing much for the business although their contracts clearly stated what each others rolls were in the business, Gentleman-one fully funded the business from day one including a very expensive virtual office situated in the heart of London and all this was because person one said they needed all this high profile publisher look with a (the authors wouldn't know the difference) virtual base in London.
After several weeks Gentleman-one soon began to realise that person-one was doing things in a sneaky way, deleting emails, making excuses for mistakes in their first soon to be published book, not carrying out his general duties etc etc etc as according to their contract.
Gentleman-one brought his concerns up with person-one. Person-one made excuse after excuse for the errors and other things. Gentleman-one eventually said enough is enough, we are NOT VANITY PUBLISHERS and asked person-one to leave.

Now in person-one's life there appears to be a recuring common denominator being the phrase "VANITY PUBLISHER" and a liar, this phrase has followed person-one through court several times, with authors challenging him and with a gentleman who has being prasied and recognised for his work and efforts in bringing these "VANITY PUBLISHERS" to the forefront of the publishing world - Mr Johnathon Clifford.

Some days/weeks later person-one approached Gentleman-two telling him that Gentleman-one had tried to take the business in another direction.

Person-one told Gentelman-two a story whereby he was visiting his wife in her home town, he was in the town center one weekend with his wife whom he would visit on alternative weekends if she permitted him too, after she had thrown him out of the family home some four years previously.
Person-one laughed when he told how Gentleman-one walking down the same side of the street crossed over to the other side with his head bowed when he could see person-one.
However, Gentelman-one told Gentleman-two that is not how it happened. Person-one crossed over  the street with his head down looking very embarrased. Person-one's wife spoke with Gentleman-one asking him how things were and why had person-one scuttled across the road. Gentleman-one explained that moment and why he and person-one were no longer in business, person-one's wife apologised for person-one saying after 35 years of being married to this man, all he can do is continue his lies, cheat and treat friends in this way, she had had 35 years of this mans lies. She said they had not lived together as man and wife for over four years partly to do with person-one's faults and lies.

So it stands that person-one continues to tell lies, even his wife of 35 years has had enough of his repeated lies and falsehoods for the best part of her married life, she was very apologetic for her husbands lies to Gentleman-one. 

Now all this brings me back to Mr Reggie Byram and his lies about me in his fantasy world of me having a some sort of criminal past serving many years in HM prisons and that I have brought kinglake down by demanding £15000.00 for shares because i am some how desperate for money. This sounds very much like a character out of one of his books. The lew grant series.

Just to clarify: Mr Reggie Byram offered me £13000.00 for my 13 months of work building kinglake into a strong business and £2000.00 for the 50% shares in kinglake. A grand total of £15000.00, this was the figure Mr Reggie Byram offered of his own free will. A fair offer for the work input and a fair offer of £40.00 per share 50 shares in total. Mr Reggie Byram at some point after his best friend refused to lend him £15000.00, decided to make out that I was wanting £15000.00 for shares, this was only in Mr Reggie Byrams sick and twisted head contorting everything to fit his lies and falsehoods.

 

28th November 2011: It's good to see your website "providers" the company that provide your services allowed your website along with the many other websites on the same shared IP address to fail over the weekend, to only come back live approx 9.00 this morning 28th November. This means no-one even disgruntled authors looking for you could see your website.
You keep 'banging on' about how good you and those around you are.

There isn't a week goes by when to the point of my sides begin to ache, I would normally ask "please stop, my sides, my sides", you do entertain me.
Keep it up Reg old boy.
I see you have removed the reference to "the pink fairy egging others on" this evening, quoted for future reference: (Actually there is only one, The Pink Fairy, and when he isn’t typing semi-literate rubbish, he is egging on others like him to spread their filth.) Its good to see you correct yourself and remove your potty mouth comments when the truth is offered.

27th November 2011: Mr Reggie Byram has got it into his tiny incompetent head that his previous authors who have made contact with him, because someone was "egging them on". Not one of those authors have contacted me or visa-versa prior to them easily finding and then contacting Mr Reggie Byram first. They tell me they had found you loitering on writers websites touting your dreadful deceit using your own name. One author told me they were amazed at you popping up and showing yourself after spending so many years lying about who you really are hiding your real identity only to give that up when threatened with court.
'Reg' you need to look at how they found you instead of that uncontrollable finger pointing that you are so good at doing. It's never Mr Reggie Byram, only the people around him.
If you do not want to be found for your wrong doing do not put yourself on the front line.
Only a moron would be that gullible to think he is untouchable and not accountable.
Try starving them of the oxygen.

20th November 2011: Mr Reggie Byram boasts that ashgrove house publishing is not a vanity publisher. A company is only as good as the reputation of the managing director.
Sadly Mr Reggie Byrams reputation as a "honest upfront publisher" with regard to the terrible information on other websites, forums along with many angry emails (at Mr Reggie Byram) from his previous authors has only proved that "Ashgrove House Publishing" IS "Mr Reggie Byram" and Mr Reggie Byram IS ashgrove house publishing.

I received an email from one of Mr Reggie Byrams previous authors who made contact with him a couple of days ago, who expressed his feelings of being taken for a large sum of money and how can be allowed to start up in business yet again knowing what he had done in the not too distant past, Mr Reggie Byram replied to that email with and I quote:

Dear *****,

Thank you for this.
All future e-mails will go into Spam.

May God bless you and give you comfort in your illness.

Best wishes

Reggie
Is that the type of reply you would expect from a managing director of an alledged upstanding company?
Adding insult to injury?
Kicking a man when he has already been taken for a large sum of money?
These are the very same actions he used towards myself.
 

18th November 2011: Well Mr Reggie Byram, no sooner do you see this page do you go off in a big scurry to create your catalogue page, nothing as yet from your pre ashgrove, kinglake, strand days. And nothing too soon either Mr Reggie Byram eh!
As you have told me many time in the past, you can easily put 20 plus ISBN numbers through nielsen and titles on a web page with an ISBN number as long as you don't get any sales, if so, then you have to upload the titles to the printer. Should anyone ask why it is showing as not available on amazon you (Mr Reggie Byram) just tell them it is proprietary information or it's amazon out of sync.
It's good to see you take the time to continually monitor this website and then change your website.

It's good to see you have put your authors hard work at risk. Your ebooks are beginning to show on pirate websites in china. You possess little computer and ebook knowledge, this is a dangerous tool in your hands. 

17th November 2011: Mr Reggie Byram states on his website on the about us page
"The series is under the general editorship of Reggie Byram. (See below for his track record as an author.)"
Any potential author looking at your imressive resume would like to know, "WHAT IS YOUR TRACK RECORD AS A PUBLISHER" after 10+ years. I would have thought this being the more important issue being the publisher.
You brag about yourself as an author with big named publishers but very little in regard to you being a publisher with a track record of "SELLING BOOKS FOR PAYING AUTHORS"
this is something they would need to know before commiting themselves to a publisher that only brags about his own achievements.
After this many years as a publisher surely you have a portfolio of authors who have received an impressive number of sales that you would be proud to share? You cannot include kinglake as the sales for the ones I was allowed to promote produced good sales whereas your efforts were limited just as the results are at ashgrove, your present company.
Come on Mr Reggie Byram, share the author names and books. After 10+ years the list must be very large and impressive. Don't forget to mention the big biography although that doesn't count, but more important, it's the real authors who paid you a large fee to be published and promoted with effort and vigour. Those who put their trust in you to market and promote their hard work.
I have a postage stamp if you need to write them down.
It will be interesting how you reply to this, Although the question is the key to your publishing background.

16th November 2011: Mr Reggie Byram! I have been inundated with calls from your past authors all wishing for confirmation that the Reggie Byram who recently started showing up on writers forums and writing groups is the same Reggie Byram of the Paragon Press, Random Publishing, Cromwell Publishing, 1st Century publishing, Vista House publishing era?, the list is endless. They have all found several websites including this one showing un-favourable tales of you and your present/past.
I now understand the reason why you have told all your current authors that you wish to remain anonymous. This would appear to be because of the unfortunate authors who have suffered at your hand of greed and lies.
I tip my hat to you for bringing Mr Reggie Byram out of the closset for the whole world to see you again. Yet another of your smart moves. Only a dumb criminal would pooh on his own doorstep then get caught doing it again.
Mr Reggie Byram, you are a star. Not a very bright star, all the same, "a star".
I was told by several of your previous authors that "the proof was in the photo" and how grateful they were that you came out of hiding in such a bold and blasé fashion. As they say on the street; Big it up guy. You have certainly "bigged it up"

It shouldn't be long before you close down ashgrove and open yet another company (if not, then you will remove the photo and go back to being called Harry, Jennifer, John, Barry whatever name you choose). You did exactly the same move with your facebook and twitter accounts when you were caught out red-handed by 2 possibly more authors exposing your deciet, you closed them down.

I'm quietly waiting for your blog page to show your deranged version of this page and the contacts you have received from those unfortunate authors who you have destroyed mentally, finacially and emotionally. I await your twisted report.

15th November 2011: I am totally suprised at the high number of contacts I have received over these last couple of months from authors who have had dealings with Mr Reggie Sharp Byram from as far back as 1998. I hadn't realised just how far and low you would stoop.
Having looked into the number of sales you have produced as a "publisher" over this time period for all those authors duped out of their savings, you have not produced any that you could safely say achieved no more than 20-30 sales.
The word from those unfortunate authors is the number of sales were largely down to them buying their own books themselves. However, I have noticed during this same time period, all your own titles have achieved far better sales, just two of your own titles achieved more sales than all those early authors together. That is something if not interesting. Or could it be that your own titles achieved those sales because as you proudly admit to, published through: Pearson International, continuum, macmillan etc.

Yes it would seem you use big name publishers to further your dream of being a genuine publisher, this inturn makes the paying authors believe you have the power to produce sales, when infact you don't know how to make the internet work.

You have had 11 months trying to make it work and you have produced nothing other than a handful of dead authors titles all out of copyright, a small selection of other titles already achieving little or NO SALES and managed to convince 5 of kinglake publishing authors that you will do the same as kinglake has done but sadly without success in sales, except with the 2 book signings this month (11 months later), one author has had a little success but the second isn't showing any sign of sales within the amazon empire.

Not until we started kinglake can you say you ever achieve a high and great level of sales for authors. Nothing you have done since kinglake can you say you have had that level of sales unless we include your own titles, but that is only expected, you will only promote and market your own or the big publishers will. Kinglake produced sales which you admitted was amazing to say the least.

After you destroyed kinglake you believed you could repeat the sales with your ashgrove. How wrong you were. How little knowledge can be dangerous and cause a business to change direction as many times as you have in the last 5 months.

Keep up the good work Mr Reggie Byram, you have given me 11 months of laughter at your expense and your actions, the actions of panic and fear.
You top it off with a resume of Reggie Byram and a photo. Now that is something that would scare the hardest of hearts away. Keep it up Mr Reggie Shark.

14th November 2011: It is almost 30 days since Mr Reggie Byram offered out his white flag of truce on the 23rd October 2011, but alas he being who he is, has no intention of following through with his yet again promise. I invited him to call me in an effort to resolve Mr Reggie Byrams worries of people seeing him for what he really is and from the many authors who suffered at his vanity greedy hands.
As of today, 15th November 2011 Mr Reggie Byram has only taken from this
mini Mr Reggie Byram Blog the things that he feels hurts his personal feelings. He has completely ignored ALL the other issues relating to his website, his in-ability to spell, his continued incompetence, his lack of regard or respect to his authors and the spelling on the covers and without feeding Mr Reggie Byrams greed by checking the insides for his signature trait of, as one judge said, littered with spelling mistakes. These actions are that of a moron and an utter imbecile.
Mr Reggie Byram, If you want people to think you are not what is common knowledge throughout the injured authors that you have had the honour and privilege to know but then dupe, requesting a way to resolve this by way of a truce and then not to respond, is not the way to go about it. Be a man, be the gentleman you pass yourself off as, don't be the coward and non-combatant you proudly admit to, man-up old boy.
You know deep down that you will not make contact after what you have done. Again you are a weak coward through and though, unable to admit your wrong doings, especially after telling your authors your version - you cannot go back on your word and show the REAL LIAR AND SCOUNDREL that you are.

1st November 2011: On the 24th of October I asked "call me" but alas you are all mouth and wind for effect and show.
I also pointed out your terrible spelling mistakes
and you replied in your sweet blog and I quote:
(About time, too, that you remembered all I taught you about the difference between it’s and its. Your spelling and syntax have deteriorated seriously since we ceased to work together.)
I would say this is a contradiction "old chap", in one breath you say about time I remembered then you negate it? or did you forget to add a couple of words? Im guessing with your state you forgot to add....
You should be looking near home for your spelling and syntax.
Ex English teacher and spelling is not your forte.

31st October 2011: Mr Reggie Byram. If I said do you remember some 3 years being called Reggie Shark! and you getting very angry? I think you know. And wasn't there a sizeable amount of money involved?
Isn't it interesting how news travels in more than one direction.

29th October 2011: I have received this week a signed contract that Mr Reggie Byram penned and signed on or around the 28th April 2009. This was a contract of partnership between the director of the publishing company and Mr Reggie Byram, unfortunately Mr Reggie Byram was under order not to serve as a director for a period of some 5 years. Mr Reggie Byram settled into his new role of 50% partner at this newly formed publishing business. No sooner had Mr Reggie Byram settled when he started to make big changes within the company which concerned the only director and the very same director today. In less than 5 months Mr Reggie Byram had tried to change the business direction from small new genuine publishing company into a vanity publishing company. The director said enough is enough and asked him to leave. All this within the space of 5 months. Mr Reggie Byram appears to have an history of destroying companies if he doesn't have total control.
When Mr Reggie Byram approached me offering for the both of us to put our skills together, his reason for "walking away" from the other company was because of management issues.

24th October 2011: Mr Reggie Byram, I thank you for keeping in contact with this website, you will learn so much about your many mistakes with your titles, your website, your terrible spelling and use it with pleasure as an ointment to relieve your 76+ years of age, of your vindictive and malicious tongue.
 

I thoroughly enjoyed your new blog page: My Stalker. As for the additional traffic to your website from this mini blog, you believe to be of benefit to you. That is good, you still understand the power of the internet, that is also good. I'm pleased you are receiving traffic.

Communications are only fed to the one's known to run with the tales. When you know the one's running with tales, you can feed them almost anything, surprising how well the receipient reacts.

A shame though that one author in a telephone conversation not too long ago, regrets ever listening to you the second time. They regret taking the option to have their book republished for free after paying so much for the privilege the first time around with you and then to lose the cover that spoke volumes of their book and now suffering with the poor cover offerings that you so blatently brag as better than any covers from Kinglake!, and then there are the zero sales, not the same when at Kinglake. They now know why you cannot acheive the sales as did with Kinglake, they understand that you cannot bring to the table that part of the promise, they understand that I was the key factor in the promotion and sales side. Actions (promotion & Marketing) speaks louder than words. They say they were afraid of the other options of finding a new publisher and then to pay again with the possibility of another Mr Reggie Byram just around the corner.
I wish you well with all that you do for your authors. They will eventually see you for what you are, sadly this will take time and then it will be too late for them. 

At the time I made the statement with regards to a father figure, this was made sometime in February/March 2010, this was true, on the outside you appeared to be an honest caring person, then with ALL your costly mistakes and vanity publisher attitude (an author wasn't happy with the number of free books even though they had previously signed the contract agreeing to 5 free books, you then GAVE him what he had demanded, 10 FREE BOOKS. A CONTRACT IS A CONTRACT) at Kinglake Publishing Ltd from around August 2010 - December 2010 you had left me with no option but to tender my 50% shares and partnership.

You made me an offer of £13000.00 for my 13 months (Nov 2009 - Dec 2010) of services building our business Kinglake Publishing Ltd (both our efforts were to be financially redeemed at the end of December 2010 in any case, with invoices served to Kinglake Publishing Ltd) plus £2000.00 for the shares you gave me as a 50% partner, a total of £15000.00.
You remember the day very well, Thursday 30th December 2011 at 2.30pm, you had got it into your head that the meeting would be very messy. It turned out to be the easiest resolved meeting you have had under these circumstances. You had then asked me to grace you with fourteen days to come up with the monies, I accepted and extended this to the 14th January 2011 since it was almost the new year.
The following day you emailed your best friend offering him 50% share in your company, an investment of £15000.00. When he replied some days later saying a resounding NO (after they had a good laugh at your request before replying, monies were needed for an house move) your tone towards me changed, on the 10th & 11th January 2011 your were difficult to talk to, you were accusing me of tampering with your emails and internet when infact it turned out to be an issue with YOUR BT connection, their problem.
I ignored this tone again, then after collecting and delivering out of the goodness of my heart on the 12th January 2011 with promotion & marketing materials for Gary Hibberd's book signing, paid for out of my own monies and delivered to you at your flat S4 ashgrove house, you were very rude again, you said you would pay me when you felt like it. Possibly with a cheque at the month end. I asked why you are making everything so difficult, you just smiled and walked off.
That afternoon you sent a payment of £40.00 via paypal for the marketing materials removing the VAT that had also been paid, your answer was that you could only see £40.00 on the INVOICE when infact it clearly showed £48.00.
Again later that day another rude email telling me the £8.00 has now been paid. Later that day you withdrew your offer of £13000.00 for my 13 months of efforts and told me to sell my half elsewhere but would purchase my 50% shares for £2000.00 (at this time you had already made up your mind what was to happen next, you had already registered your new company).
Then on the 17th January 2011 you had started the malicious and vindictive campaign of tainting my character with your made up lies, your deformatory printed statements and your need to steal all you could from me.

So back to the original statement of father figure (the one I have, I knew where I stood, with you, well from the 10th January 2011 you proved to be a complete MONSTER and mentally unstable), once you had stepped in to the realm of a complete moron (19th January 2011 with your solicitors attack) and took that stance, you removed all instances of a "TRUCE", at that moment you had relieved yourself of any possibility to repair the vast damage you had done, you had chosen the path you wanted to take. that path was to destroy me and my character and steal all that you could.
I don't know how you dare request we call a truce now...... Unless you wish to sit down and resolve this.
 
 

Putting the authors who suffered under your reign to one side, what you tried to achieve knowing since July 2009 of the serious ongoing illness within my home, by putting my family and myself, through your unnecessary goal to steal all that you could without a conscience when all around you refused to input their savings to be any part of your mis-adventures, you chose the only course you knew. DIRTY THEFT, your subsequent failure to steal then to close down Kinglake Publishing Ltd.
You holding out your hand now for forgiveness and a truce, leaves me feeling sorry for you, right now you are a sad old man. 
You know what will resolve your bitter disgusting attack, trying to avoid paying for what you had requested and received, your disection of my character and the ongoing issues. Call me. 

23rd October 2011: Mr Reggie Byram is this evening 6.20pm showing on his "What We Offer" page four self publishing packages. This was explained to him by myself well over 14 months ago for the direction that Kinglake Publishing Limited should take. I had come up with the concept for Kinglake Publishing to follow this upfront and ethical path, to make it clear for all authors to see within an instance what the costs were, not hidden behind his lengthy communications charade only to hit them several weeks down the road with an "AUTHORIAL CONTRIBUTION" this is because you are an unknown author and the costs for marketing and promotion will be very high. Mr Reggie Byram has for many years followed the latter path, treat the author like a mushroom..... Keep them in the dark and feed them BS.
In Mr Reggie Byrams eyes an author will pay almost any price to get their book published (his own words), hence the above vanity approach.
The latest offerings from Mr Reggie Byram appears to be that of back-tracking, he is doing his upmost to redeem his conscience of his past actions not only with the authors but his evil and terrible attacks on myself.

He believes that if he's upfront with promising words on his website he may just pull it off.....
Mr Reggie Byram, You are a "CREATURE OF HABIT" an "OPPORTUNIST" of the highest degree.

Mr Reggie Byram, a question or two if I may. As of this evening 23rd October 2011 7.24pm Your four self-publishing packages with links that are going to "New Generation Publishing" website a part of the Legend Press company, well the prices you quote and advertise are completely different to the ones advertised on "New Generation Publishing" website.

Do you find it so difficult to follow simple instructions?
Do you find it so difficult to check your work?
Do you find it so difficult to do the simplest of tasks without making a complete hash of it?

It shouldn't be long before you read this and again correct your ongoing incompetence.
It shouldnt be long before you take the time to read ALL the content here and make the corrections require to lift you and your website from imbecile to the heights of coherient mammal.

Your blog dated 23rd October 2011: Did I write too soon?
I can only say that my comments further down this page starting from the 14th October 2011 has brought your attention to them and forced you to make a retraction with military precision to cover your previous actions of adding "TAT" then delete pages and content without consequences. 
This is the man whom I came to know and understand as an out an out HIGH RISK. He cannot be trusted to follow instruction, cannot be trusted to do the simplest of tasks and cannot be trust whilst he runs in several directions FULL STOP.
Mr Reggie Byram, I have dated screen captures of all your webpages on a daily basis to cover my offerings, your ongoing failures are comical to say the least.

Im a firm believer that when someone is down, give them the chance to get up and straighten, unfortunately you did not allow me the same courtesy, you took advantage of not having anything in writing, just  your word to me, concocted your version of a gentlemans agreement, when you couldn't get the monies from your friend to buy my half of the business turned all that to your advantage and all the time you knowing of the serious illness and heartache in my own home, used the monies to get solicitors threatening me with court action. You are a bitter nasty man that needs to lie to make his life complete, you cannot help himself.
 

21st October 2011: Mr Reggie Byram has finally come out of hiding! After many years of pretence, lies and hiding behind aliases he finally believes he must show himself, he shows it very well on his "About Us" page.

After many years of using the terms "upfront and ethical" he has finally, Dare I say, started to be upfront!!! with the author. Beware, a leopard never changes it's spots, NOT even over night.

Mr Reggie Byram would like you to think he is a changed man, not the man of past imbecilic incompetence, lies and failure, but from now on "upfront and ethical.

As of today there are still titles on amazon with spelling mistakes (he has been made aware of them several times) that have been accepted by himself as correct for several months and from the same man, Mr Reggie Byram who states on his "About Us" page that he has an impressive history and résumé.
His website is also HEAVILY LITTERED with childish spelling mistakes that anyone in his position and level of education would check, double check and thrice check, each and every time before publishing for all to see. Mr Reggie Byram is a "CREATURE OF HABIT". Mr Reggie Byram continues to show the world that he will not make the effort and does not care about the author, Mr Reggie Byram way way back in 2000-2001 lost a court case for the VERY SAME REASON. SPELLING MISTAKES, infact the county court found that Byram had breached his contract, the book was LITTERED WITH MISTAKES and that no or very little promotion or marketing had been carried out by Byram and his company. Injured vanity costs aspiring author £3,000

It's not that long ago that when LEW GRANT (Mr Reggie Byram) asked by several unpublished hopeful authors if he was infact Mr Reggie Byram, his answer was to instantly close all communication channels with the authors and close several twitter accounts to avoid exposure. Not long after this action he notified on his website that paperback books will no longer be published through him and his company, only ebooks. He now suggests on his "What We Offer" page that he will also accept SELF PUBLISHING.
These are the actions of a man not knowing after all these years, what direction he and his company must travel.

 

18th October 2011: There appears to be a flurry of activity at Mr Reggie Byrams crumbling empire. Major changes in the direction of promotion and marketing, he is actually doing it now for his authors too. Several pages have changed by removing "negative" content in favour for content that genuine publishers would use.


17th October 2011: Mr Reggie Byram has finally arranged book signings for two of his authors, some four months after publication date and with ZERO sales on any of the Amazon sites, this will create a minimum of 10 sales for each author, the retailer will buy at least ten books each for these book signings. Mr Reggie Byram can safely say that he has achieved what he had promised. Published their book with vigour utilising promotion and marketing.

16th October 2011:  Mr Reggie Byram has replaced the content of his "What We Offer" page that clearly stated previously that he would not publish paperback or hardback books because "the book is dead. Long live the eBook", he now states that "he will consider paperback and ebooks or both". This man changes direction more times than the british weather.

15th October 2011:  Way back in June/July 2011 Mr Reggie Byram published several ebooks under the imprint of "ASHGROVE EDUCATION" littered with spelling mistakes on the covers, the very same reason he was taken to court in 2001 and subsequently lost the case for the cover mistakes and the internals littered with spelling mistakes, for a large sum of £3000.00. It was some three months ago and again two months ago that I brought to his authors attention of these mistakes which filtered back to Mr Reggie Byram. As yet they still remain in this unsaleable condition. He will not make the changes as these titles are not his own. He is not interested in getting sales for the authors, only getting his own sales. One mistake is "ASJHGROVE EDUCATION", now correct me if i'm wrong, but would anyone in the circles of education want to purchase any titles for their students with an obvious "IN YOUR FACE" mistake. For that to pass (hard to miss) any editor/publisher eyes will tell you that the internals will/may be littered with the same errors. These are errors of an uneducated person, an imbecile pretending to be more than what they really are, someone who doesn't care. These are the actions of someone wanting to fleece all he can with minimal effort at the expense of others. The care and attention to details have evaded Mr Reggie Byram at least 10 years and still continues, he will however upon seeing this eventually make the changes then furnish the authors with some excuse why and how this happened and pass full blame to someone else.

14th October 2011:
Mr Reggie Byram has now removed his damaging comments on his "About Us" page,

 YOU MAY HAVE SEEN ACCUSATIONS THAT ASHGROVE HOUSE PUBLISHING IS A VANITY PUBLISHING COMPANY.

THIS IS UNTRUE. MANY LIES ARE BEING CIRCULATED, BY WAY OF THE INTERNET AND IN E-MAILS.  IGNORE THE LIES.

AS A DOG RETURNS TO ITS VOMIT, SO THIS WRETCH REPEATS HIS FALSEHOODS AT REGULAR INTERVALS.

THOSE WHO DEAL WITH ASHGROVE HOUSE PUBLISHING AND ITS PROPRIETOR  KNOW THE TRUTH.

Those comments alone have drawn unecessary attention to Mr Reggie Byrams peppered vanity publishing history. This stupid and incompetent addition screamed BEWARE - Mr Reggie Byram of Ashgrove House Publishing has bad history, this is out all over the internet to be forever available for all to see. It also gave way to information for authors to deeply search and look further into Mr Byrams past.

I thank you Mr Reggie Byram for sharing these comments for the whole world to see, with a minimum of 5 weeks of stupidity showing for ALL the search engines to pick it up.
Congratulations, you knew far less than I had given you any credit for (which was little to start with), well, AS A DOG RETURNS TO ITS VOMIT, SO THIS IMBECILE REPEATS HIS INCOMPETENCE AT REGULAR INTERVALS.

26th September 2011: ISBN: 978-1-908268-17-4.
A book titled "Indian English" was assigned and registered with the above ISBN number, this is only done once the contract is drawn up and signed by both parties, it did for a short period appear on all the Amazon websites and many other websites including Mr Reggie Byrams website, originally set to be published 19th September 2011 through Mr Reggie Byram and his company Ashgrove House Publishing, now appears to have been removed some time in mid-late August. "Indian English" will now be published through a new publisher New Generation Publishing (Legend Press) on the 31st October 2011, publication date taken from the Authors website. It just leaves the question, WHY was the book and contract cancelled? Did the author decide that Mr Reggie Byram couldn't fullfil in an upfront and ethical way because of additional authorial contributions, or was it that he charged a larger fee for less effort than his competitors?. One will never know,

Mr Byram can turn a poor sour tale to his advantage for those "under his spell" around him. It wasn't long after this title was removed that Mr Byram "Decided" to stop publishing paperback books in favour of kindle ebooks.

 25th September 2011: On Mr Bryams About Us page he has a little dig at the Guardian newspaper for reporting the truth from an actual court case found in favour of the plaintiff, another author who had the sense and strength to stand up to him and demand a full refund for Mr Byrams admitted editing incompetence and for some reason a dig at me.
There are four sentences on the About Us page, the third one he has changed several times over the past week. Three days ago it read:
AS A DOG RETURNS TO ITS VOMIT

, SO THIS LIAR REPEATS HIS FALSEHOODS AT REGULAR INTERVALS.

Today it reads:
AS A DOG RETURNS TO ITS VOMIT, SO THIS WRETCH REPEATS HIS FALSEHOODS AT REGULAR INTERVALS.
and before those two changes he refered LIAR/WRETCH as an imbecile.

 16th September 2011: Mr Byram finally acknowledges his failures and stupidity (more likely after seeing this page on Wednesday/Thursday 14th/15th September 2011) and adds another author to the front page in the "Featured Publications" finally giving his authors a front row seat of website promotion.

Having looked at ashgrove house "about us" page today, the last line "THOSE WHO DEAL WITH ASHGROVE HOUSE PUBLISHING AND ITS PROPRIETOR KNOW THE TRUTH." I would say for those many authors who don't  have a nice kind or friendly word to say about him had dealings with Mr Byram in the past know exactly who the proprietor is and know the real truth.
No matter how much Mr Byram says the company is of good standing, ethical and upfront, Ashgrove House Publishing is Mr Byram. A leopard never changes it's spots, at 76 years old he is well and truly set in his ways, in a world of make belief and fiction.
Mr Byram has the patter, he often said, get them on the phone and I will draw them in hook line and sinker.
After he finally realised that he had no legal rights to take the kinglake website or the book covers (he did not want to pay for the promotion/marketing services, licence for covers and works on website over a period of 13 months, and an invoice still outstanding) admitted defeat and shut down kinglake publishing, not before hatching a plan to discredit my character with his lies. His anger now shows in his "about us" page rant, im guessing he is feeling hurt that his friends would stand up and say things about him, and say them to me. I classed Mr Byram a friend right up to the 11th January 2011 when he told me to sell my half of the business to a 3rd party. Then on the 19th I finally realised how nasty and twisted he was when he used the monies owed to setup a new company and get his solicitor to try demand what wasn't righfully his, and then when authors were sending me emails and letters received from Mr Byram asking if I had actually spent many years in prison for "GRAND THEFT AUTO". Mr Byram, It is not called that in the United Kingdom, it may be in your world of fiction and confusion.
 

 8th September 2011: I see from Mr Reggie Byram's website he has now decided that paperback books are a thing of the past and that eBooks are the only way forward. He was told early in April 2010 by myself that eBooks are the way forward and that we should make them a large part of the business, he said "no way", Author's will pay an handsome fee to see their books in print. He now states he and his company will not produce paperback:

From now on we are only going to publish in Electronic format. It is our contention that the days of the bound book, even the paperback, are numbered.  Hence, our change of direction.THE BOOK IS DEAD.  LONG LIVE THE E-BOOK.
Looking at the number of sales for his authors paperback books he hasn't acheived above ten sales through Amazon in total across all his authors. He lost the promotion and marketing, infact he had no idea how to do this, when Mr Reggie Byram decided to go back on his "Gentleman's Agreement" HIS word and try steal what wasn't his, it began to fall apart. This ongoing greed of Mr Reggie Byram has been and still is his downfall. He cannot promote and gain sales for authors as did Kinglake Publishing Limited. Nine months and nothing above ten sales for all his authors. Yet at Kinglake the story is different. Over £13,500 in the bank and over £2500.00 in royalties from sales for the same period.
It would now appear that Mr Reggie Byram hasn't been able to come anywhere near either of these figures, partly to do with his VANITY PUBLISHER attitude and his self destructive approach to authors. Jane Richards and Derik Jonson are but two of a possible long list of "Byrams greed".
 25th August 2011: Mr Byram in less that 1 month again drops his ebook prices, four times now he has dropped his prices. Hey Mr Byram, not finding the market selling prices on those poor excuse of covers and titles??? You just keep dropping those prices, you are enteraining me no end, keep it up.
Your statement to me back in April "Many comments have been received from authors who remark, without prompting, on the superiority of Ashgrove House covers to those produced for Kinglake Publishing Ltd." if your statement above offers you some lite relief and assuages your pains of envy be sure to explain to those authors from April why they have not acheived a single sale during this time with you. And be minded to feed them the half truths as you had done at Kinglake Publishing Ltd. Its about time you brought out some more titles. You said many times you know what sells and what doesn't. So far you have proved the latter. They say "only a fool makes work for themselves" and "anyone can work for nothing", I chuckle every time you make thoughtless business decisions with unresisting imbecility. The pangs of envy, greed, and moral irresponsibility must be weighing heavily on your mind at this unfortunate and sad time.

 30th August 2011: Received some interesting news today. It would appear after all the things Mr Reggie Byram said about myself with regard to "is not part of and has never been a part of Kinglake publishing" now transpires that after the EGM Mr Reggie Byram requested 30th December 2010 and subsequently offering me £13,000 for the 13 months as a business partner and full time effort in building Kinglake Publishing plus £2000 for my shares and then ultimately denying that I was never a part of it or that he offered me £15000.00 he actually email his close friend asking if he would be interested in a part share in his company for .... wait for it this is an extract from the actual email to his close friend....
31st Dec, when RB casually dropped into a discussion about various other political/economic matters that J might like to invest £15,000 (note the sum!) in his 'publishing business', which would give him 50% of the shares. Edited highlights include, which may amuse you - 'The company has been recently valued as worth c. 50 and 60 grand – as they say in financial circles. I forecast it will do better business in 2011 . . . . There is no lack of working capital, so this is not an attempt to introduce new money. It is intended to wrest back control . . .
The company? www.kinglakepublishing.co.uk A limited company of which I am the only director. If you are not interested, send me a brief email, and all is forgotten, and our friendship continues.'

Interesting information, it would appear that Mr Reggie Byram did all he could to destroy my character and credibility with his "sillysitter" and with the authors. When he realised that he couldn't raise the funds to cover HIS OFFER he chose to use dirty tricks in an attempt to steal what rightfully wasn't his. Mr Byram, you are a bad man through and through. Rotten to the core, a bitter OLD MAN with greedy ruthless history

 11th August 2011: Mr Reggie Byram finally adds one of his five genuine authors to his home page Featured Publications. He has removed "The Secret Sharer" and replaced it with the only genuine authors ebook title to achieve a sale, a single accidental sale. Could this selfish man be doing right by his authors, I dont think so, this man will never change, he is driven by greed and self importance.

 6th August 2011: Mr Reggie Byram now appears to be using his catalogue of titles from his "Paragon Press Publishing" circa 1999 days. These titles were used to give the impression and convince writers that "Paragon Press Publishing" was somewhat an upfront and ethical company.

Many of these titles below (in bold) are now in his "Ashgrove House Publishing" eBook catalogue, again to give the impression and to add weight to his somewhat ethical and upfront company.

 2nd August 2011: It has been brought to my attention that Mr Reggie Byram setup in partnership with another gentleman and created a company called S******* Publishing Ltd. This was early in 2009. Mr Byram came to me in late October 2009 saying the partnership had crumbled with the director over direction of the company, could we do something together then Kinglake Publishing was created.

 Having spoken with the director, he says that Mr Byram tried to take over the company and turn it into a VANITY PUBLISHING company. Fortunately for the director of S******* Publishing Ltd, Mr Byram could not become a director at that time because of another failed limited company of Mr Byrams and was unable to serve as a director.

 According to Mr Byram he was able to be a director again some time in late January 2010 and then set about his devious takeover plans. When Mr Byram agreed to purchase my half of the business at the meeting in late december, he knew then what his intentions were. After a failed takeover attempt of S******* Publishing Ltd he had learnt his lesson. From the 5th January 2011 Mr Byram set about sending invoices to potential new business in the sums of £1500.00 instead of our original agreed business model fee of £873.00. Mr Reggie Byram had become greedy yet again. VANITY PUBLISHER ALL OVER AGAIN.

1st August 2011: To all the Unlucky writers published through Ashgrove House Publishing. Have you by any chance looked at the main home page of Mr Byrams website? The three featured publications are all his own books!!!
This has been showning for the last 2 months at least. I would say he's middle fingering the genuine writers titles in favour of his own titles. He's looking to catch any sales by showing his own titles on the home page. Why doesn't he show your books? Because it means he does
n't get the sales and 100% of the royalities. He does however get when/IF your book sells 70-80% of the netts and you get 20-30%of the approx £1.80.

31st July 2011 7.15pm. It gives me great pleasure having had a good chuckle this afternoon at Mr Byrams misfortune. How karma can come around when least expected. I was told by many people that man will get his comeuppance and karma will follow him.

Mr Byram: Karma means "deed" or "act" and more broadly names the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, that governs all life.

Mr Byram, as I can see, you are receiving far better than I could have ever wished for. My only other wish would be that karma continues to hunt you for all your other nasty "deeds and acts" and brings it to the forefront of your public exposure.

UPDATE: 4.30pm 31st July 2011.
It would appear Mr Byram @LEWGRANT1 has closed his account down this afternoon. Derik tweeted a little while ago: " would appear Mr Byram has closed down and run, just like he's done many times in the past. no guilt without fire"
It will be interesting to see how this progresses with our very own confidence trickster Mr Reggie Byram.

Received two interesting emails early today 31st July 2011. It would appear Mr Byram is using Twitter as a vehicle to draw unsuspecting authors/writers into his sordid web of deceipt.
One email from Jane Richards in London (Born in SA, new writer), she joined Twitter on the 26th and started to build her her list of people to follow mainly publishers and writers. Literally within minutes she received a message from "Lew Grant" (Mr Byram) (@lewgrant1)
"Thank you for following and being followed. I am a crime novelist and my publisher is www.ashgrovehousepublishing.com Kind regards, Lew" less than a minute later she received yet another message from "Lew Grant" (Mr Byram) "Born in SA. Check. Writer. Check. Gender. Male. Contact my publisher on www.ashgrovehousepublishing.com Lew Grant, crime novelist, ". Jane says she did not know about the messages until contacted by a Derik Jonson yesterday."Derik told me that @LEWGRANT1 was infact a Reggie Byram along with links to his terrible past as a VANITY PUBLISHER this site being one of the links. Derik also says that the contact at ashgrovehousepublishing.com will be Mr R S Byram. He plays many-a-character roll in the deceiptful underhanded world of VANITY PUBLISHING. 

The second email was from a gentleman called Derik Jonson. He approached Kinglake Publishing Ltd in late december/January 2010/11 in the hope of a publishing contract. He says Mr Harry Taylor whom he now knows as Mr Reggie Byram offered him a contract around the 10th January 2011 saying there are big new changes within the company, a change of direction. The publishing contract mentions "an authorial contribution for the efforts involved with an unknown author", this figure was £1500.00 Sterling (a friend had told me about Kinglake and that they charged £873.00) big changes with a big hike. Fortunately for me I was away on business untill the following week, I found out that Harry Taylor and his business partner were unable to resolve the financial issues between them. Then it turns out that Harry Taylor was indeed Mr Reggie Byram and that he did not have a business partner ever with Kinglake. Very strange I thought but business is business and for them to sort out. I moved on. Then in April 2011 I made contact with a company Ashgrove House Publishing Ltd re my novel and several questions, obviously didnt want to be caught out with another scam. The contact at Ashgrove replied basically saying we will publish your book (there were no name to the email). This was not an answer to my main question, I again asked my main question with the heading "Dear Mr, Ms, Mrs or Miss ???" and he replied in a rude way "With respect, I did answer your question. See below: 'We are willing to consider your collection of stories" and the email contained a signature this time R Byram (Mr). bells were ringing, was this the same chap from Kinglake. I did a little research on Google, he has quite a peppered history of this kind of activity. I then started looking for his methods of drawing unsuspecting writers in. It wasnt long before I was overwhelmed with information on him. I made contact with all those taken in by him informing them of his history and not to just rush in until they knew more about the scoundrel Mr Byram. Two/three weeks ago I found him sculking around twitter touting his  devious goods. Made contact but he just closed his account, couple of days later found he had created another account. Saw Jane Richards trying her best to communicate with him, he didnt appear to understand the way to tweet. I made contact with Jane yesterday 30th July 2011 showing her the links so far and that she should be careful not to make any quick decisions.

UPDATE 30th July 2011 Reggie Byram has finally given his paying authors the covers to their paperback books on Amazon, not bad to say it has taken him over 2 months to do this and some 30 days after the official publication date. Well done Reggie Byram you deserve to be entered into the PUBLISHER & EDITOR OF THE YEAR AWARD.

29th July 2011 Mr Byram continues to promote his own work "Lew Grant" yet leaves the real authors to fend for themselves. Mr Byram's promotions take's him to the Jewish Telegraph Online website http://www.jewishtelegraph.com/arts_1.html yet nothing appears anywhere for his own authors. He says he's an ethical upfront Publisher unfortunately he uses this excuse for genuine authors to fund his own poor "out of date and out of touch" novels.

At long last 28th July 2011, Mr R S Byram finally adds the covers to his paying authors 2 months after publication on Amazon. Unfortunately this does not include the paperback versions (still without covers), only the Amazon eBook.
Sadly he felt his own books deserved this very important addition from the very start and not some 2 months later.

Mr R S Byram, you never listen and alas will never learn. Dropping your prices three times over the last month on the ebooks and you still dont get the sales. Hmmm, could be just your covers are very poor and that you don't do the promotion and marketing. The Amazon forum "book covers" even told you and you still continue down the path of greed and blindness.

Mr Reggie Byram is showing his true colours this month 18th July 2011, this is dated so when he tries to cover himself with forced promotion BS tackticks the dates will show. It would appear Mr Byram is promoting his own titles with zero effort for his authors. He is pushing very heavily his Lew Grant Series through the forums including the amazon forums and twitter "My name is Lew Grant I have 6 titles already published through Ashgrove House Publishing and a further 2 titles coming out later this year." Yet when the same search is performed for his authors titles nothing comes up to show he is promoting them. He does not even mention the authors or titles in his own promotion, he only raves on about the gorgeous sexy covers of Lew Grant. He is in-effect saying paying authors do not deserve my efforts or time. The amazon "book covers" forum have said his covers for a publisher "are iffy" and very poor quality and his own covers are slightly better but still very poor.
Looking at Amazon UK, USA, Germany, France & Canada sales rank, only one author has acheived a sale, a single ebook sale, all the other sales are for his own titles and or dead authors in either eBook or paperback.

 As you can see from the above information - correct as of 18th July 2011 17:05 BST, his own books are receiving sales albeit very little. It appears that one authors ebook has sustained an accidental sale.  However Mr Byram will claim he has brought this sale with his "promotion and marketing stratergies of the highest standards". Unfortunately Mr Byram, it appears your marketing and promotion stratergies seem to only work in a minimum and little way for your own titles and not your paying authors!!! 

Mr Reggie Byram continues his deceit through his new company.
He lists a generous number of titles 21 in total as of 19th June 2011, unfortunately there are only 5 genuine authors in his catalogue and these are from his Kinglake reign, 5 other titles are from "out of copyright" dead authors.
The remaining 11 titles are all penned by Mr Reggie Byram trying to fool you into thinking he has a large catalogue of authors. When at Kinglake Publishing he often said "You don't need to actually publish a book to look as though you have a large portfolio". from his 11 books at Kinglake he only had 3 printed saying if the other books sell on Amazon I will rush them to finish the writing off, until then they are just "stocking fillers - window candy" he is saying new authors will see his "window of delights" and come forward with their money believing Kinglake has a large list of genuine authors.
He is now doing the very same at ashgrove house publishing but on a larger scale.

Below is Mr Byrams list of aliases as an author through Kinglake and his new company Ashgrove House Publishing are as follows:

From Kinglake:

  • Andrew Markby
  • Steve Katz - renamed to Lew Grant
  • Fran Pickles
  • William Keely
  • Jenifer Scott
  • James Buckden
  • Jeff Dalby
  • George Tabard
  • Jack Sykes

 

 

And the same books/Authors and re-titled From Ashgrove House Publishing:

  • Lew Grant - was Steve Katz series
  • Cal Surtees
  • Jack Sykes
  • George Tabard
  • Jeff Dalby MD - Mr Byram Giving Mental Illness advise from a figment of his imagination. Not the way to publish by giving advise to this kind of illness when one hasn't spent the many years required for medical training in this field.

Mr Byram obviously thinks he is highly and professionally trained in all fields be it medical, publisher, editor or even what he doesn't own he believes he can legally own or take. This he proved himself wrong when he refused to pay for the website, covers and his requests for me to provide the services. He found he could not legally take what he wasn't prepared to pay for. In his own words, Grizzell was never a part of the company, Grizzell was never a partner in the business therefore Mr Byram HAD to pay for my services as agreed in his original gentleman's agreement. He then passed his failure and blame onto me, used me as the whipping boy.  Typical of the type of man he is.


All his books may show on amazon etc but will continually show "Temporarily out of stock, will deliver when available" until he pays for them to be available. A very good example is one of his many alto ego's JEFF DALBY MD publication date 1st March 2011 - still out of stock some 3 months on. Mr Byram spent some months (long before his 20+ years to present as a vanity publisher, and then as an English teacher in the UK, Asia and Africa) as an Psychiatric Hospital Orderly and now offers his book as an MD and Author from the USA. the old cliché - too much knowledge in inexperienced hands can be dangerous. He even quotes some Mrs E.A. thanking him saying "I was a wreck until Jeff became my doctor." Mr Byram says that Dalby has lived and worked in several countries in Asia and Africa, this is so he can get his story right if questioned about these countries. You will also see that all his own books are dated: publication date (1 title)1st March and 1st June 2011 for his remaining 10 titles, yet the REAL authors come second best on his list of priorities. He says "I shall publish my own books first then the poor looking covers of the real authors books."

And to the authors taken in by Mr Reggie Byram.

 Garry Hibberd, author of And Man Created God!... A very fitting title offering the imagination to read further.
On amazon.com 1 review of 2 stars. a link to the review
here
When I pointed this review out to Mr Byram on the 31st December and again on the 3rd January 2011 and showed him the link he said bragging "Yes the first chapter I edited, but couldn't be bothered to do the rest. Hibberd has tried to be the publisher and editor and pestered me too many times to have it done correctly". When I asked if he had read the review he replied "Hibberd has paid, why would I need to read reviews".
What I read of the review, the reviewer shows his disappointment for spelling mistakes that an EDITOR WOULDN'T MISS and the author should get a fact checker. He also states that he could not get past the first chapter because he would have been searching for spelling, grammatical, usage and factual errors rather than enjoy the book. However, the reviewer did say he would be willing to consider reading a rewrite after the author gets his editing and facts checked.

This clearly points out Mr Byrams failures as an alleged editor and publisher. It also shows the court case Mr Byram lost in 2001 against Mr Roberts who successfully sued Mr Byram for spelling mistakes to be an ongoing problem with Mr Byram. He is in it for one thing. Author Vanity.

This original book had a synopsis and quoted from Amazon website:
DNA is extracted from the Turin shroud and experts in cloning technology see this as the chance of a lifetime. A baby boy is born and given the name of Mark. He is passed to surrogate parents. By the age of eleven years, Mark is displaying skills beyond his years. The scientists who developed him are delighted. Then Mark begins to have visions of a past life. And it is now that the lives of the scientists themselves are in danger, as, one by one, they are found murdered, and in an horrific manner. The police discover that one of the objects found at the scene of a murder is a page from the Book of Revelations, which refers to the End days, where seven bowls are poured over the earth to purge it of sin. A priest from the Vatican, Father Alessandro, is involved in some way. But in what way? Is he an angel or a devil? What dark secrets does he possess? And will Mark, the marvellous boy, survive?

Im not sure that Mr Byram understands cover art. It would appear Mr Byram was thinking of something completely different when rushing to knock-up a cover for poor Mr Hibberd. The cover on first impressions screams "KKK". Not the type of cover one would expect for a novel of DNA extraction from the turin shroud.


Mr Byram angrily informed me and I quote:
 Many comments have been received from authors who remark, without prompting, on the superiority of Ashgrove House covers to those produced for Kinglake Publishing Ltd.

Mr Byram's covers were never mentioned yet he jumps at the chance to say his covers are ok. It's the viewer who will see what they see in a cover, Im not interested in your inability to inaccurately provide a visual representation of a book with such an unsuitable cover. I see what you have produced and cannot help but smile, but a heart felt sadness for your authors. It is their hard work tarnished with those shameful covers.

Either Mr Byram is showing signs of ocular disfunction and personal failure or he is fooling the authors into wearing the invisible cloak when it comes to the cover designs!!!.
Those covers do nothing for the books or authors. The book titled Shroud just shouts KKK.

Sales should prove to be challenging with a cover of this appearance and nature.

 

Mr Byram back in April 2011 added details of the 5 authors books to Nielsen the ISBN body for the United Kingdom. Unfortunately he had given the wrong details for one of his own books with the author Marcus Woolcott details (Nielsen appear to make constant mistakes around you Mr Byram). Subsequently in an angry email from Mr Byram told me that Nielsen had made the terrible mistake. Sadly for Mr Byram he not only made that mistake but with another of his own books assigned two different ISBN numbers for the same title. One title 2 ISBN numbers.

Today 19th June 2011 I see that Mr Byram has made another mistake with the author Marcus Woolcott, this time he cannot blame Nielsen (Nielsen do not make these kind of mistakes) Nielsen staff tell me that the error in April was form input from Mr Byram, it is Mr Byram who continues to think he is above data input so doesn't make the effort to double/triple check his feeble efforts. The oldest 76 year old bull in a china shop. This latest mistake is from the form submitted to his POD printer or he has an account with amazon's kindle program whereby you input the information into their system. No doubt Mr Byram will now blame either the POD printer or Amazon kindle for this latest error.

Marcus, so sorry to see that you have to endure Mr Byrams consistant incompetence. No doubt he will have a string of additional excuses for you.

 

Mr Reggie Sharp Byram, AKA Reggie Sharp, AKA Reggie Byram, AKA Harry Taylor, AKA Jennifer Jackson, AKA James Lansbury to name but a few has over the last 10 plus years not been the ethical and upfront owner of many publishing businesses as he would like you believe. He openly states he has only had two companies.
and formely of:
Random Publishing,
Cromwell Publishing,
1st Century publishing,
Vista House publishing,
and several other publishing houses. This list and his many other comapnies are "NOT ONLY TWO COMPANIES"
He has been named and shamed by
Injured vanity costs aspiring author £3000.00.
On the face of it, he appears to be an Honest, Genuine upfront person, a gentleman by appearance and voice does not need to hide behind any aliases unless there is something serious to hide.
Mr Byram has chosen to hide behind his many deceiptful aliases and continue this sharade over many years and to present day with all the authors along with the authors of Kinglake Publishing Limited.
Mr Byram is quite happy to deceive authors with his many aliases, in his eyes he thinks he is doing no wrong, his excuse is "There has never been any illegality regarding the use of names. It is true that I have used many pseudonyms when I have published with Pearson International (Longman, Heinemann), Macmillan and with other major publishers. This is established practice within publishing."
It is acceptable as an author but this is NOT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR or normal practice for an aledged "upfront and ethical" editor and a director of the same Limited company to do this to authors unless they have something to hide.


Author Diana Daneri who had suffered great expense at the hands of Mr Reggie Byram aka Harry Taylor aka Jennifer Jackson over the November/December of 2010 period with costly spelling mistakes, ignoring her repeated requests for the edits etc, a list too long to mention here but can be found on her new website blog 
dianadaneri.sytes.net.

On
Diana Daneri's website she tells you how she got into writing, her struggles to get a publisher, the troubles of vanity publishers and her fears of the unknown with publicity and book signings. Her fight should inspire you.
Diana's list of 4 books starts with
Kristina's Destiny, Andrew's Destiny, Colleen's Destiny which is in the last part of being published and then finishing with
Colleen's Final Destiny awaiting to be published.

Yesterday 17th February 2011 we received a very worrying email from Mr Reggie Byram.
This man has stated that all the authors of the soon to be disolved/shutdown Kinglake Publishing Limited will be unable to have their books republished, and we quote direct from his email:
The trade has been informed that it should not sell any books that came originally from Kinglake Publishing Ltd, or any other seeking to pass off as that company. 

It would appear that Mr Reggie Byram feels "If He cannot have the authors publishing business, then no other publisher can, He will destroy it" - that is what he is saying in effect. Hardly good business practice.
If you are an author who's book was published with Kinglake Publishing Limited and you are concerned with the actions of Mr Reggie Byram with regard to your number of sales, your royalties or re-publishing you can send an email to ourselves at

Mr Reggie Byram on the 12th January 2011 registered 2 domain names along with another limited company, then after sending Mr Reggie Byram of Kinglake Publishing Limited my invoice dated 11th January 2011 all backed up with documentary evidence and not some onesided "he said/she said" Mr Reggie Byram's version of a gentleman's agreement without any documented proof:

www.ashgrovehousepublishing.co.uk
www.ashgrovehousepublishing.com
and the limited company named
Ashgrove House Publishing Limited

This was long before his wild accusations and threats of action then offering me an unrealistic amount of money for my services to him and his limited company in the sum of £2522.00.
Mr Byram refused to honour his gentelman's agreement that I would in December 2010 put my invoice in for the services provided and get paid.
In January 11th 2011 I sent him my invoice, he refused to pay the invoice for the amount of £13500.00 for services provided over a period of 13 months. He said "Kinglake Publishing Ltd cannot pay your 'invoice'; it is retrospective and inauthentic." However his solicitors state and I quote:" You have rendered an invoice to the company which is in dispute and which, in any event, it does not have the means to pay".
He cannot pay this invoice as the company does not have the money.
My departure came about because Mr Byram made several costly mistakes with authors text "inners" The authors involved with Mr Reggie Byram and Kinglake Publishing Limited know what these errors are.

It now appears that Mr Byram did not want to pay for what he had ordered, he wanted it all for nothing, himself!, he himself brought all this trouble on because he could not afford to pay for the services he commisioned and then in a last ditch attempt registers a new limited company knowing that he will be protected behind this limited company as many time before, to continue his deceipt with his historic pattern to hide his real name as shown in the court case here

16th September 2011: Mr Byram finally acknowledges his failures and stupidity (more likely after seeing this page on Wednesday/Thursday 14th/15th September 2011) and adds another author to the front page in the "Featured Publications" finally giving his authors a front row seat of website promotion.

Ater looking at his "about us" page today, the last line "THOSE WHO DEAL WITH ASHGROVE HOUSE PUBLISHING AND ITS PROPRIETOR KNOW THE TRUTH." I would say for those many authors who don't  have a nice kind or friendly word to say about him had dealings with Mr Byram in the past know exactly who the proprietor is and know the real truth.
No matter how much Mr Byram says the company is of good standing, ethical and upfront, Ashgrove House Publishing is Mr Byram. A leopard never changes it's spots, at 76 years old he is well and truly set in his ways, in a world of make belief and fiction.
Mr Byrams has the patter, he often said, get them on the phone and I will draw them in hook line and sinker.
After he finally realised that he had no legal rights to take the kinglake website or the book covers (did not want to pay for the promotion/marketing services, licence for covers and works on website over a period of 13 months, an invoice still outstanding) admitted defeat and shut down kinglake publishing, not before hatching a plan to discredit my character with his lies. His anger now shows in his "about us" page rant, im guessing he is feeling hurt that friends would say things about him, and to me. I classed Mr Byram a friend right up to the 11th January 2011 when he told me to sell my half of the business to a 3rd party. Then on the 19th I finally realised how nasty and twisted he was when he used the monies owed to setup a new company and get his solicitor to try demand what wasn't righfully his, and then when authors were sending me emails and letters received from Mr Byram asking if I had actually spent many years in prison for "GRAND THEFT AUTO". It is not called that in the United Kingdom, it may be in your world of fiction and confusion.
