NEVER,NEVER, NEVER Do business with these guy. Misleading and corrupt! They've taken advantage of my mother for over $14,000. It's really sad that there are companies out there that do this.

I’m just in the beginning phase and after listening to other companies I’m finding AuthorHouse refreshing. I’m looking forward to the publishing of my (and my illustrators) first book

Oh dear.......give it time and you'll change your opinion. Read the book The Authorhouse Scam and you'll realise what you're into.

They publish anything....they're after money not good literature. They don't care if you sell one book because they don't sell your book to others....only back to you. They withhold royalties, fail to answer emails, break the contract, scam people into spending thousands which brings no result at all, do little effective marketing , have a disgraceful editing and proofreading service which leaves glaring errors. You tell them about the errors but they don't correct them but then charge you for correcting them later when you point it out.

They are not called vanity publishers for no reason. Run while you have time.

Authorhouse - THANK YOU SO MUCH

Thank you so much for your review of authorhouse. I almost made the biggest mistake of my life publishing through them. I was shocked when I saw another complaint say that these companies are all owned by author solutions? I avoided those companies , page publishing and others who had dozens of complaints.That left me with only a few other companies. I heard nothing but good things about newbookauthors.com and went with them. Thankfully I didn't regret it! I had a great experience. To think I almost went a different route. Authorhouse does look good, so it can be deceptive. But there were just too many stories warning people to stay away. I found hundreds of warnings. So please people do your research before publishing a book. there are a lot of shady companies out there just waiting to bite.

Update by user Jul 23

The monetary loss is at least $4,000 in withheld royalties, NOT $4.00! Author House is pirating my book!

I shall lodge a complaint with Indiana's Attorney General (as a first step). A breach of copyright law suit will follow, if Author House does not immediately end...

I gave in to their one month free trial, and they never reminded me when that was up, so I paid $13. a month for several months. I admit that it was easy to cancel. But they are still phoning me, and offering me silly deals. Like selling my self published books to...

Go elsewhere to punish this company has been nothing but a disappointment all about money and stealing royalties and other charging for author copies with very low quality.

Authorhouse - Rip Off

They will not change or correct anything that is obvious without charging you. They do not understand English and they are really based in the Philippines, over 8 thousand miles away and 3 time zones, they try and get you to use them to market your book at great expense and they are a scam company, I finally got my book published correctly but it took 8 times and at great expense. I would never use them again.
