Authorhouse in Smyrna, Georgia - 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.

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.”

NAJAFLI is AuthorHouse and Author Solution and every other company bought? The face behind mask sold legion demon in the skull to north america public library e book down load system for $2 dollar profit per sell for lval's legion.

No real contract. If try to use old contract. Problem? Original account was set.

Failed to pay gary thomas royalty over 4 or 5 year period. Sure they made a mistake. No call list? Really people.

Why? They broke contract never paid em and selling title as e book and soft cover book. Settlement? Why?

Oh em more than 5 or 75 dollars. The book is selling overseas for $60 dollars.

It's ridiculous how these philipino crooks have come to open book publishing companies and authors are trusting them with manuscripts that we spent long sleepless hours thinking and creating words and pictures for the enjoyment of families yet we are being robbed...in our faces. HELP!!

Thus HURTS very badly. It's embarrassing too!

We're not stupid because we tried to TRUST! AUTHOR Portia McGowan Green authorportia.weebly.com
