Authorhouse published my novel and now have no knowledge of my name or their ISBN number.

Authorhouse published my book under the name 1stBooks in 2003. I received a dozen paperback copies and a check for a few dollars shortly thereafter, but nothing else since until I recently discovered my novel for sale on Amazon. I have no knowledge of how, since I haven't contacted anyone concerning my novel's sales.

Poor customer service

Authorhouse - Bad Company over 10 years i have not recieived but $2.52 nothing more.

My book was published in the year of 2011 that is 10 years. I know for a fact that books have sold to friends and family over the years. But royalties is a no. I have talked to other people that author house published their book I get the same answers each time. I have a new book that I have written, but fear the same things will happen to this new book. I have tried to get in touch with them about one year ago and this year. There reasoning makes no sense at all to me. All I want is the money that's done to me.

I forgot to mention that they do not market the books correctly. I wrote a book about sex and they wanted to put it in Reader's Digest and a Teacher's book show, which would be very inappropriate.

Also they do not offer Kindle or Audible services. I would be very...

Greetings, Of this article, every word is right-on. In any dealing with Authorhouse one must use utmost caution.

They steal the copy write and you don't own your own work. They do.

These folks are the biggest Cons in the entire vanity press industry by taking advantage of the unaware. Ron Miller, former owner for the copy rights to Rogue Journey, Asia, the way it was, 1935-1975..

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!
