I have spent over eight months trying to get a quality book published and each time it was one excuse after another. Eventually when the supposedly publication consultant said that the quality issues was related to the image quality, I decided I had enough. The images were all 300 DPI and above and looked great in the proofs they sent, but awful in the printed book. They have no idea what they are doing, will take several days to respond to you...

*** AuthorHouse writers beware. AuthorHouse will screw up your manuscript, and cheap you out of your monies. *** AuthorHouse; best, publish else where. Peace.

I used authorhouse and all sounds good in the sales pitch, but then the philapinos do the work and they suck at it. I paid then for a book service and to add in photos that I sent in. It does state on their web sight they do Custom Image Works. They couldn't even do that right. I taught myself how to do their job. I lost thousands of dollars and one year and 5 months of pure aggervation. I made my books even the book covers through Zazzle.com by... Read more

Avoid at all cost. Author died suddenly, and coercive tactics used to attempt to avoid refund. Despicable and abhorrent.

Authorhouse published my book when they were called FirstBooks. They have been selling my book and I have not seen a dime in over ten years. They claim they have no record of sales. However I just bought four copies online today from used book sellers so I know my books are being sold by someone and it is not me. I never get my books from Authorhouse any more. I get them secondhand online for less than what the publisher sells them to me for.... Read more

I published my first book with Authorhouse and found them to be quite unreliable. They changed my agent every three months, either because someone quit or maybe they just rotate the workers quarterly. I was rushed to get my material in but when I got the proofs, there were so many mistakes it looked as though I didn't read my own writings. At times words were smashed together, content that I had written was omitted, and the type Os many tiny... Read more

I used authorhouse to publish my book REG a science fiction story. Despite extensive costs and advertising , I only received a matter of pence in quarter royalties. I realise now that I have been taken for a ride. Richard Groves richardgroves2016@outlook.com

I decided to promote my book in an online movie trailer after repeated calls from the company that it was very important to promote my book although my money was very tight I chose to do this program. The day after it was paid for I got a phone call from another sales person saying how wonderful my book was and pushed me hard in trying to sell me the Hollywood treatment. I finally agreed against my better judgment, and late on Friday, December... Read more
