When I first signed up with 1st Books and paid $1k back in 1997, I was told my book was too short. 8 pages. So I collected emails friends/family sent me to pad it up. That too 10 yrs. Sent it in at over 400 pages. Then I was told I was plagerizing. So I whittled away almost 100 pages. Sent it in and no word. Sent it in Oct 2015; Got a call from a female 5 months ago(?) who said this has been going on awhile and that she will get someone to... Read more

I HAVE ONLY BEEN WORKING WITH THESE PEOPLE FOR A LITTLE OVER 2 MONTHS, BUT I AM VERY DISSATISFIED WITH WHAT THEY CALL THEIR CONTENT REVIEW TEAM. THEY TELL ME TO CHANGE MY STORY (WHICH IS A REAL PART OF MY LIFE) SO THAT THE CHARACTERS WILL BE UNRECOGNIZABLE. I CANNOT DO THAT SINCE IT WILL MAKE MY LIVE SEEM UNREAL AND UNTRUE. THEY ACCUSE ME OF LIBEL AND I CANNOT TOLERATE THAT. I HAVE FACTS TO PROVE WHAT I AM SAYING IS TRUE, BUT THEY DON'T WANT... Read more

They did a great sales job, promising the world and tons of ways to help me. They did nothing but sell me on useless BS. They call me every month to reorder books. They are in a for-profit business only. Stay away from Authorhouse. They send everything to the Philipines and when you get it back it's distorted. So, you start over and over. Still mistakes. They make you take pictures of your camera to prove they were your photos. They make your... Read more

My first book was published in December of 2015f, and I was pleased with the speed at which publication was achieved. I am not pleased with the speed at which royalties are sent, or ignored or denied. I have requested a review several times of discrepancies between Neilsenbooscan records of the number of books sold, and the number Authorhouse acknowledges. All to no avail. Authorhouse takes the position that Neilsen and Amazon are creating... Read more

I am currently stuck at the middle of publishing a book with Authorhouse. biggest frud I would say. over promising and under delivering. so commercial and based purely on making as much money as possible from the Author. extremely disappointed.! I have started working with them since March and up until this day I haven't received half of what was supposed to be an integrated marketing plan for my book. they try to sell you new services instead...

I made the mistake of publishing a book using these fraudsters. You don't have to. The company is a fraud. That simple. They never pay royalties, I cannot get copies of my own book and when I can, they continue to change the price and it's always too much. When you call for customer service, don't kid yourself, they don't have customer service. Thieves, fraudsters, manipulative vanity publishers, that's all. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY WITH THIS...

I FIRST WENT WITH AUTHOR HOUSE IN SEPTEMBER OF 2015. I PAID 1,959.00 CANADIAN. AFTER GOING THROUGH 5 CIC`S AND LOTS OF DISAPPOINTMENT WITH NEVER BEING HAPPY WITH THE PROGRESS. EVERY TIME I CHANGED CIC`S, THEY WOULD NOT TRANSFER THE MATERIALS AND PICTURES WHICH I HAD RETURNED, TO THE OTHER MEMBER. I CONSTANTLY HAD TO EXPLAIN TO SOMEONE WHO I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND IN THE FIRST PLACE, THAT I WAS GETTING DEPRESSED AND WANTED TO TERMINATE THIS... Read more

When I wrote my first ever book, and the possibility of having it published became a reality, I was really excited about it. Now, however, that excitement element has been lost and the whole fun element of publishing it has gone; my enthusiasm has waned. Initially, the service was good and despite being, what I would now call 'coerced' into buying a package at a discounted price, I am discovering that to receive part of my package is proving to...
