The first copy of my book I emailed was rejected because of information I used about people in my story which potentially could defame their character. My story used first names only. The remedy was an affidavit with permission to use first names with their signature...

I wrote a book. Thank God, I had my own editor. Authorhouse is at a minimum, misleading. I’m grateful that I live close to the company as I decided to visit in person to resolve some problems. When I showed up, I was told that no-one from my “team” or in the building...

I self-published two books by Author House. One in 2010 and 2011. They said they could not pay me royalties as I did not have a UK Bank account. After over 200 emails over this time they sent me a cheque for 82cents. I have sold over 2000 books and have now put in the...
