U R G E N T U P D A T E :
The Western Maryland Railway ... Baltimore to Cumberland & The New Line ... Volume III
Everyone, it has been brought to my attention during the week of 3-20-17, that this book has become available.
It is not (even though it is)!
This version was sent to me on 1-20-17 to review and as it turned out there were printing problems (AuthorHouse did an investigation and admitted this). Many photos were dark, some distorted and some had color separation issues.
I made it clear to AH that this book was NOT to be released.
Photos were then resubmitted and corrections were made to the AH printing system and, without my knowledge, someone from AH released this unapproved book to the public and failed to notify me.
They informed me on 3-24-17 that this version has now been put on hold (at my insistence).
I finally decided, after 3 major AH errors (one in November and two in January), to notify the Indiana BBB.
I'm awaiting their decision on this matter.
The first priority is ... I'm trying to get the customers who purchased this unapproved version a free copy of the approved version.
I'll update this website as I receive updates, thank you.
The updated version of my book has arrived and was approved on 3-29-17.
