Authorhouse - Just awful..

Spent over 500 publishing, books were sold.. royalties (if we can call a few pounds royalties..) cannot be cashed as they are in a pen name.. the form to change is ridiculous.. How do i make it so they have nothing to do with my book anymore?! They are completely useless and just after your money. I still owe money to family, pretty ashamed of myself for being so foolish.
