Autherhouse is the worst company to deal with for self publishing.their sales men keeps calling until you sign and they get the credit card info.They then charge you for work they did not do.Authors should be careful not to sign with corrupt organization that tries very hard to steal your money.Said Shehata Add comment

The caller insisted it wasn't necessary. I asked him where... Read more
