Never publish with AuthorHouse. YOU WILL REGRET IT! I published a few books with them back in 2006, and have sold many books. I have got absolutely nothing in royalties. I know I sold allot of books, because friends and family have bought them. AuthorHouse will act like you haven't sold many at all. It is a scam, and I believe it's ran by a mob. BE VERY AWARE THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SCAM YOU!... Read more

Oh it looks good with the first $2,000. It looks good when your PA's (who are ill paid in the Phiippines and work 14 hours a day) work so had with you (and they do). It turns very, very bad when someone in the US contacts you and talks you into buying more of your own books than you will EVER NEED (because you don't KNOW this). I say: a stack of cartons over 6'4"appeared at my door. It turns... Read more

There were two things that happened. 1. I received a cell phone call from them. 2. I received an email from a man by the name of Ross Marley. The mannerism someone who can find you via one time you responded to a research issue on help and guidance with publishing on an online site should be protected by some kind of law. Sorry, I can get irritated. I grew up with a father that believed... Read more

Since my publication of my poetry book, Over A Cup Of Coffee on July 13, 2013, I am perturbed with your promotion as initially suggested with the Pinnacle package. Authorhouse should clearly state how the book will be distributed. I checked with other publishing companies, such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indigo carrying and promoting my book on the Internet, something I have not seen from the... Read more

I was also a victim of the unsavory business practices of Author House. I read their ad on a site called " FreelanceWriting.com" I had a children's maze book that I was thinking about publishing. I called the number and spoke with a representative. The rep. was a very good hustler, and talked me into a package deal, and raised my hopes in believing the book would sell. I'm embarrassed to admit... Read more

I am willing to go on TV about this. I spent over 2k to get my book published. No royalties. Emails quickly dried up after all money was spent. I wish I checked out Author house before investing. They're clearly scamming aspiring authors! Only after angry email did I get a 0.57p check!!!! Add comment

They pressured me into buying packages to promote my books. After paying the hefty fees, the same person at AuthorHouse who called me did not pick up my phone calls anymore. They also would not pay out loyalties, and there is strong reason to believe they lie as to how many books have been sold. They pressured me into buying packages to promote my books. After paying the hefty fees, the same... Read more
