Lifevest Publishing Bankrupt


I’ve received so many emails from pissed off writers that want to know where their bo0ks or money went–that I thought I should tell everyone that reads this article:  I AM NOT AN EMPLOYEE OF LIFEVEST PUBLISHING-NEVER WAS, NEVER WILL BE!   I HAVE NO OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT LIFEVEST, OTHER THAN WHAT I POSTED ON THIS BLOG.  CALL MIKE DAHERN  THE FORMER LIFEVEST CEO FOR MORE INFORMATION 720-284-7581. TELL THAT POMPOUS ASS THAT FRANKE SCHEIN SENT YA–!



Over the last few months I have been made aware that unknown person are using the former Lifevest Publishing Name and Business information to perpetuate what appears to be an outright scam against former lifevest authors. They are using the business address and telephone numbers, as well as the old Lifevest website, and sending out marketing e-mails trying to generate and solicit response from lifevest authors.

However–all of the emaisl are bounced back, or are not answered by any of these people. Their email address is sent from . This particular email forwarding service has been contacted, and they are aware of the situation and monitoring it.

As an author that had a book with Lifevest, it is of interest to me that my book, along with the inventory of other authors book, were sold at a public auction.

Even more, are the number of complaints against Lifevest since the death of Rick Simmons, the former CEO of Lifevest.
Those with an interest in this case, please contact me right away.
