Whe I got £ 0,30 from the Author House as a royalty (do not laugh) for my book The cat Nissie by Robert Crofter as a pseudonym I closed all sell. They closed the sites but opened new sites continuing sellig. It is a copy right crime. I am looking an attorney to sue the Author House . I want to inform other writers for such thieves. They are just cheating people. Another writer, she lost £1500 to... Read more

Authorhouse sent me the contract to sign and I fortunately went on line and found this site of negative reviews before signing. When I read through the reviews,it is exactly my experience. I am not experienced in the publishing field and fell for every line they gave me including this is the last day to sign up for this discount. Wow! I am surprised at myself for falling for this. I have poured... Read more

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. Read more

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
