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

Everything went great in publishing my book "Crossings of the Dark". Until I got the printed book through the mail. Mind you, I reviewed the first few chapters page by page after it being edited. I found some mistakes and got it taken care of. However, I found a few mistakes in the last few pages of the book. The book title, when seen on actual paper, looked smaller than I wanted. But now, since... Read more

I was telephoned to take out more advertisement for my book Eden: The Buried Treasure. As I still had an advertisement on-going I declined but asked if it was possible to change the title of the book. I was informed that it was possible and Authorhouse took £448. 10pence from my account on 30-1-2015. A few days later I was informed by phone that it was not possible after all, so I requested a...

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
