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

I tried Author House, paid 800 for a screwed up book. They didnt edited my stuff, sent out copies with 40 plus typo errors, and they gave me the run around. I even called the big boss, still nothing. Then they tried to get me to pay another 300 for edit and redo. They aso tried to get me to buy my own books in packets that costed me arm and leg. I said no more money from me, you cant fix a simple thing. I ended up redoing my book myself through... Read more

After informing Arthur house "publishing consultant" Derek Austin that I am not interested in Arthur House's services, telling him not to call or send me emails, he continue to call me from his private line-not from the company phone, whining like a frustrated wife of a poor fisherman. I hung up on the creep, resulting in his trying to leave a voice message on my phone. I hung up on that too. I have been asked by Arthur House reps to send the... Read more

Fellow authors. Save yourself money and don't buy those packages from any of those self publishers. You can do it all on createspace or you can go to www.fiverr.com for all types of book services including covers, book trailers, format and editing, and even legal assistance to check your book for libel and slander for $100 is what the Law student charged me. Create your own publishing company and publish it yourself. Don't waste your time or... Read more
