1. They publish quickly. You must have your manuscript ready and photos ready for submitting once you sign. Their product is professionally printed. 2. You must hire your own editor and proof your book over and over before submitting. They can't be held responsible for...

I was told by Authorhouse that I still have royalties coming but - new rule as of Q1 2018 - because they are below $75 for the quarter these cannot be sent until that threshold is hit. But the "good news" (LOL) is that if you do not reach that threshold by the end of...

The first copy of my book I emailed was rejected because of information I used about people in my story which potentially could defame their character. My story used first names only. The remedy was an affidavit with permission to use first names with their signature...

Had to make several calls and emails that they started ignoring (working there must be he'll) and finally they did a reconciliation, but who knows if that's right (or honest). Look; the more they can screw you the more money they can make. I have 3 more completed novels and I won't work with them again. Simon & Schuster has a self-publishing site and guess what? They are in partnership with Authorhouse...
