Attention to all Readers I published the book "Hades and Persephone" on 2007. My understanding was that the contract agreement will be for 30 days and If I am happy with their services I will renew the agreement. Despite that I cancelled the agreement late December 2007 -2015 the book is still selling/renting internationally in more than 100 countries. It is unethical and unacceptable from... Read more

The first time they tried to contact me, was last year in 2014. I declined, seeing as they have many bad reviews. But they won't stop trying to contact me! They just called me right now after I told them not to contact me again, and I am getting very angry. It's Amber Richards who first contacted me march of last year, but to be honest I don't know who it was this time because I didn't give a... Read more

I sent my manuscript for review and was told it was acceptable. So i gave authorhouse $530.00. After getting my money Authorhouse started to give me the run around for over 7 months. I got disgusted and canceled my contract. Authorhouse kept almost half of my money. I found that Authorhouse had translated my first book into 3 languages and i never received a penny of those royalties.... Read more

Never publish any book at the Author House. Another writer, she lost £1500 to... Read more

I published my book a few years past and just learned there are several copies sold and I have not received one dime of the sales. I looked it up on line and found people selling copies and there are several copies for sale across the world on amazon. I personally purchased 10 copies on amazon and never contacted by Authorhouse! They have called several times only to pay for packages for... Read more

You do not need to go through someone to publish. Get a book about publishing and another one about self-publishing and you will see what I mean. Get your own editor for cheap and benefit from significantly more royalties than 10%. If they have your credit card, cancel it and get a new one before trouble starts. Dont give people money for your book, they should pay you! I told them they have... Read more

I have been getting emails and many phones calls from a representative of arthurhouse. I don't have a compliant but I do find them pushy in getting me to contact them. I did indicate that I needed time to review the internet to determine the optons that are available to me but the calls continue. It does sound very promising. I guess it didn't help when I talked about my book and the sales... Read more

When I published they made typos so you would have to spend more money I received a check for $1.90 cents and my book has been published for several years and yes people have been buying it. The book is sold in different states as well. Some of my friends stated in buying the book they paid up to 25 dollars for a copy and cannot locate it in the sites they advertised it would be. Overall very... Read more

I published a book written and illustrated by my sister who subsequently died of cancer. Since I designated any profits to go to a local arts-in-schools art program in her memory, I set the sale price quite high. After paying Authorhouse's rather extravagant prices for the rather low quality print services, I have received just 3 royalty checks (for less than $5 each time) in the six years they... Read more

Expectations are built up, preying on the author's ego, to get you to buy the "package" for several thousand dollars. Then they disappear on you and you don't get much in return. Just another sucker. Beware and don't do anything other than the very basics with this company. It's not about you but about your money (for them). Better to just go online yourself and promote your property. You don't... Read more
