Authorhouse - Unhappy

1.5
Details
Once they received my money I can't get anyone to respond to several e-mails asking when will I receive my author copies and the other things I paid for. In the beginning, I was told by the first lady she would be with me through the whole process. Once I paid, I was handed off to several different people. Suddenly all interest in me seemed to vanish. I have yet to hear when I will receive my copies and other things I paid for AND how am I getting paid when my book sells.

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.

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.

Oh? Too bad. For all I know when I published my book, I was the one who approved how my book will look like when it's published. I'm assuming you as well. Self publishing comp...

This is a case of "Buyer Beware." I voluntarily entered into the sales agreement knowing what the facts were, but as time went on and the sales of my book took off, it became painfully obvious who was making all the money - AuthorHouse. They priced my book at $19.95...

That's sad. For all I know, my royalties were 25% from the SRP(suggested retail price). Book was sold at 23.99. I received $5.99 per book. I think this isn't real. $0.95 Unrea...

Authorhouse - Ace Abella would not leave me alone!

Authorhouse publishing "consultant" "Ace Abella" would frequently call and/or e-mail me. Asked multiple times to stop contacting me.

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.
