The Author Incubator Scam
I came upon AuthorIncubatorScam.com while investigating Angela Lauria and her endeavors. Self-identifying as an optimistic cynic, pride washed over me as I clicked the link, thinking I had saved myself from heartache for not being able to readily jump into her training pact.
Initially, I found the information helpful; it addressed my initial concerns and I felt like I could trust my *second guess*. As I continued to read through, I was clearly in the middle of a personal attack lobbed by a guy who didn't make the romance cut... Uh oh.
Going from pointing out demonstrations of improper grammar to posting personal, private texts, heavily interspersed with Mr. Pavleck's misspellings, grammatical errors of every type, and literal curses. A few times, I had to go back to the beginning of the sentence because I was too busy mentally editing the content that I lost my place.
A few examples would be the use of the words "we" and "my". It's "we" when Mr. Pavleck wants to bully someone, and "my" when you're paying him through PayPal.
One spelling error was during a rant where Jeremy Pavleck used the word "righting" instead of "writing". Uh oh...
The more I read, the more I fell in love with Angela Lauria as a human being. There was a LOT about that woman that I could personally relate to, including the website and Jeremy Pavleck.
AuthorIncubatorScam.com/Jeremy Pavleck slams Angela Lauria for not "actually selling books" and is stalking Ms. Lauria's author's Amazon sales using a program.
Mr. Pavleck's focus in misplaced. He thinks The AuthorIncubator.com is about publishing books.
It is not. It is a business design service.
As an outsider looking in, as well as someone who was listening, Ms. Lauria presents that the book is a portion of the combined services the author offers as a portion of a training program. The book written during The Author Incubator's direct services is the author's testimony of the amount of ground covered by the time the book is done. Tracking the sales of books that are a free feature of the author's coaching program useless for ultra-niche SMEs.
Honestly, I cannot afford her services. There is no way other than lottery score, delayed pay taken from sales, some type of grant, or a very generous benefactor with the cognizance and discernment to weigh my potential, drive, and dedication to invest in me jumping into The Author Incubator's AMAZING offering.
My credit and living situation both blow -BUT- those elements do not detract from my "life-experience wisdom" that I'd love to share with others in my "tribe" across the globe so they don't consider leaving life earlier than their time... I hit a speed bump in life that dropped me into a canyon, when once I was on top of the world, addressing groups and giving 1:1 training. I have to climb out of the financial hole to be considered a contributing member of society. I might die before that. With any luck, I can only hope someone worthwhile will come across my many notebooks and have the affluence to enact the plans in there... I am one of many with this story.
I now subscribe to all of Ms. Lauria's communiques because she is STILL helpful, inspiring, and genuinely vibrant. She keeps the flame of Hope alive in me.
She comes across as a gal who seems to share a lot of my experiences and my pop culture interests. I *like* her projection. She was where I am and got beyond the obstacles.
Everyone plays the "game" so we can make it *one more day* on this planet. Just as Mr. Pavleck presents himself as a team, so have we all at some point- or will. I understand he was hurt when he didn't make the cut, lol, but he apparently had the opportunity to step up to the plate and failed in spite of himself. I've done that, too.
Ultimately, we all know at least one Jeremy Pavleck. Almost none of us know an Angela Lauria.
