clear to anyone that Authorhouse is a wildly disreputable company. With the thousands of complaints and the pending class action suit filed in New York, no one should ever consider using them as a publishing tool. In 2009 I did just that. They charged me jus $800. 00 US and in the end published my book using a preliminary unedited draft...

says "sorry, kid" as AuthorHouse can't control what they do. They sell a service (like a library, not the book itself). WHO DO YOU THINK GAVE IT TO THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE, it wasn't me! It ranges from 600 - 900 at the beginning of college classes as it is being sold as a text. I AM BEYOND PISSED and want to start yet another class action suit...

the very beginning of AuthorHouse, which was '97 or '98. A. H. And ALL the P. O. D. Companies have a very legalistic paragraph in their contracts which forbids any and all lawsuits. It's iron clad but the language is so legal only a lawyer could even understand what it is saying. It was originally cooked up by a huge, very successful law firm in Indiana that got very wealthy by protecting the interests of families related to dead movie stars...

My experience with Authorhouse has been extremely bad, they have printed it for their own use and profit, As more me they have cut me out of any sales since early 2012. When you publish with them everything is one sided for them, and to Mkw matters worse, they register the work in their own name and have complete control of it...

AuthorHouse is a boiler room scam operation. Random House bought them in an attempt to step into the world of self-publishing. Unfortunately, they are sinking the good name of Random House. They will promise you absolutely anything to get your credit card number. Most the reps do not even know that they are fronting such a scam...

cancelled my contract with AuthorHouse but have heard nothing back from them regarding my demands for a partial refund. They have been incredibly incompetent, unprofessional and dishonest. I never get straight answers, the proofs were rubbish, there was no one person overseeing the process so there were continual misunderstandings and changes to issues that had previously been agreed, email statements never matched verbal agreements...
