I began with AuthorHouse on 5/31/18 with a novel. This was the second time that I had planned to publish something and I wanted to try a company instead of doing the work myself. Everything was expensive and I'm really not in the right spot to be spending that kind of...

I had to send them a cease-and-desist twice. I told them to stop selling my book because the editing was subpar and there were some mistakes in it that they would not allow me to correct without paying them more money. I took my book to a different Publishing Company,...
