Update by user Jul 23

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...

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 - Unhappy

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.
