I was supposed to get 15 copies of my book, but only got 2. When I addressed the issue, they all ignored me. I emailed so many times, but they never reply.

THEY ARE CRIMINALS WHO OWE people like me millions and if I lived in the US i would take them to court. Unfortunately I live in New Zealand.

Terrible...almost pressured into a contract that I did not want, but once I read the fine print under the royalties, I knew I did not intend to sign. | Authorhouse review from Smyrna, Georgia

Once I decided to cancel (I had not signed the docusign agreement) the book project, I called the person responsible for the refund back on my credit card. He told me to talk to the consultant,even though he was the one who had to refund my money. I told him that I was through talking with the consultant and that I had made up my mind. (I had called my credit card company to file a dispute just in case AuthorHouse gave me a hard time. Not a good company....Interested in making you believe that they will do more than they can do,based upon their successes with famous people who can easily get a deal with a traditional publisher.

As someone trying to write professionally, you should know that “$300.00 hundred dollars” is an atrocious way to use grammar. You’ve essentially said, “three hundred hundred dollars dollars.” You should use just, “$300.”

Before trying to publish another book, work on your writing. You’ve written enough words to fill three paragraphs but didn’t use a single punctuation mark that would end a sentence.

It’s funny how you complain about misspellings and typos your editors have made while saying “typo's,” which is possessive, not plural. You should have said, “typos.”
