I am currently stuck at the middle of publishing a book with Authorhouse. biggest frud I would say. over promising and under delivering. so commercial and based purely on making as much money as possible from the Author. extremely disappointed.! I have started working with them since March and up until this day I haven't received half of what was supposed to be an integrated marketing plan for my book. they try to sell you new services instead...

I made the mistake of publishing a book using these fraudsters. You don't have to. The company is a fraud. That simple. They never pay royalties, I cannot get copies of my own book and when I can, they continue to change the price and it's always too much. When you call for customer service, don't kid yourself, they don't have customer service. Thieves, fraudsters, manipulative vanity publishers, that's all. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY WITH THIS...

I FIRST WENT WITH AUTHOR HOUSE IN SEPTEMBER OF 2015. I PAID 1,959.00 CANADIAN. AFTER GOING THROUGH 5 CIC`S AND LOTS OF DISAPPOINTMENT WITH NEVER BEING HAPPY WITH THE PROGRESS. EVERY TIME I CHANGED CIC`S, THEY WOULD NOT TRANSFER THE MATERIALS AND PICTURES WHICH I HAD RETURNED, TO THE OTHER MEMBER. I CONSTANTLY HAD TO EXPLAIN TO SOMEONE WHO I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND IN THE FIRST PLACE, THAT I WAS GETTING DEPRESSED AND WANTED TO TERMINATE THIS... Read more

When I wrote my first ever book, and the possibility of having it published became a reality, I was really excited about it. Now, however, that excitement element has been lost and the whole fun element of publishing it has gone; my enthusiasm has waned. Initially, the service was good and despite being, what I would now call 'coerced' into buying a package at a discounted price, I am discovering that to receive part of my package is proving to...

I have made 12 requests for a refund of payment. This goes back roughly 2 years, communicating with two company presidents, at least 5 different servicing people, 2 managers and countless phone calls to the 'service' unit. In spite of the fact that I have stated specifically I am not publishing a book, and I am a single parent, they won't budge on making the refund, which they have the discretion to refund. They are refusing to refund the $1k... Read more

Bits and pieces of my story stretch across the lines of each sad review. for a while i thought it was me now i understand that this is a part of their unethical business practices. Though I'm in the process of final corrections of my book, I'm totally convince to break all ties with this company. it hasn't been a pleasant beginning however it will be a great ending. There is no way this company can get aware will all this deceit. Law... Read more

Before I went with Author House, I sold at least 2,000 copies of A Double Life by Kitty Puchalla. I then decided to go with Author House to publish this book in book stores. As of today, I have received about $4.00 in royalties. I had asked this company to change the format and the size of the book as it was not suited for junior high kids. They kept insisting they could not change the size, etc. Why could I have sold so many copies in the... Read more

I have read a lot of reviews. 100% bad. I read fraud, scam, failure to comply, and lack of royals. If you are all serious in these complaints, and you are all registered on this site. Why not get together and create a class action suit against said publisher. Or write to the Attorney General to investigate fraud - a lot of letters will cause action. I do appreciate your reviews. Thank you very much. I am not an attorney... LOL Good luck.... Read more
