“This freelancer disappeared during the ghostwriting of my book, never to touch Elance again. I had already paid 1,700.00. I tried to get my money back, but freelancer would not agree to terms of this cancellation. I worked with Elance for relief, but was told all I could do was take her to small claims court. So I cancelled the project without refund, so at least I could get my escrow back. After the cancellation, this freelancer contacted me saying that personal problems had caused her 'letting me down'. She promised to finish the book outside of Elance for free if I would list her as co-author. But I never received any more of the book. It is close to a year since this project was started. The freelancer started the book in present tense, told me I needed to change what had been written, and then sent me more content, still written in present tense. Not only have I lost $2,700.00 on this book, the trilogy that it was a part of has had its timing totally trashed. I am currently changing the first person to third person and have hired an expert editor/ghostwriter who is trying to get me through this disaster. Upon hiring this freelance initially, I noticed she had disappeared on another client, but there were other good reviews, so I ignored it. In summary, I've spent $2,700.00, have half a book written in the wrong tense, and have not heard from this freelancer since October. I have been ripped off and manipulated. With the added cost of a second freelancer to help with this book, odds are I will never be able to recover my expenses. This is the worst experience of my writing career. ”
