Authorhouse - Deceitful & Bottom Feeder Publishing Co/Stay Away!

I was lulled in by AuthorHouse and fell victim to their scams. Please all stay away from this company! I have lodged a complaint with the BBB of central Indiana and attempted to dispute some of the charges via VISA. I lost a considerable amount of money and prior to severing my association with them realized just under $40.00 in royalties. The company retains a A+ Better Business Bureau rating. How that remains possible is astounding and frustrating to me!
