Early May 2015 I signed up to the Author House self publishing programme, but three days later I received an offer to publish my typescript from a UK agent. As I hadn't even forwarded the typescript to Author House, I formally requested refund of my £400. 00p payment in accordance with the terms of the agreement I signed. Eight weeks later I am still awaiting the refund. Mr Dennis Kenyon. Kings... Read more

They are not for filling their agreement. I paid them $900 to publish the book and have all right to the book. 20,000 book companies have this book and it is even being sold on e-bay but authorhouse is not sending me any royalities because I don't want to pay them more money to promote the book further when I'm not seeing money go anywhere but in their pocket. A layer friend of mine is going to... Read more

I'm told author house to pull my book off the market. I have sent them two thousand for my book and a website. My book was $17.00 dollars and now it is $2.00. Now they want me to send another $2500.00 hundred dollars for a movie script. My husband is pissed. Add comment

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

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
