The Return of Shane Staley of Darkfuse, Delirium Books, and now IndieMuse

UPDATE: This post will be updated with new information as I uncover it. You can find all new info at the bottom of the post.





The purpose of this post is to warn authors, reviewers, and readers in general of the return of a man who has a well-documented history of scamming customers and authors.





You can read my original post that describes the timeline of events concerning my experience with Darkfus

Dustin Edward, thank you so much for the kindness and respect you've shown. You seem like a really cool dude. And it isn't every day that one can chat so freely with an author, and to feel that like-minded connection.. you know? Also, some authors around here put down others in their reviews or whatever, and I don't get that impression with you, man. You're one of a kind!

I really appreciate your friendship, and I'm looking forward to discussing some more great books with you.


Happy read and writing!
