iUniverse policy of non-distribution of sales' royalties until they total a minimum of $75.00 is unethical and illegal in that it permits the company to enhance its fiscal bottom line with funds that do not legally belong to the company. The policy is injurious to limited authors, as well as authors with a small following. The policy allows iUniverse to keep royalties in their possession if an... Read more

Duped It was all heavenly and heavily loaded with glittering promises of sweeping sales and sweet-scented dew drops on every package deal… their after the seal! Scam, sham, rip-off assuming the shape of everything that ain't easy to get. And here, they reassure you, is your one time shot of getting your golden start. Don't miss out on our 50% off package deal, valid for only another 7,... Read more

I just recently backed out of working with them. They are unwilling to work with me in much needed areas where I'm lacking expertise. Then when I rceived from them an email with my name misspelled I had enough of them. I turned elswhere and they didn't hesitate to offer me a helping hand. Add comment

iUniverse is not a printer, thus you will be charged for any proofing, regardless of count. Their charges, with a discount (which is the only way to afford to correct errors, and you will have errors) are still too expensive. And then you have their 'complete your book and stick it on a shelf' mentality, unless of course you have an endless pocketbook. I suggest Amazon's Createspace. You can do... Read more

Have had 5 books published by Iuniverse. My 6th was rejected after review because subject material too critical of Barack Obama and government. They originally accepted my payment and started process, but procrastinated for nearly four months before refusing to publish. I will now self-publish or use another publishing company. This would have been my 7th book.Used Tate Publishing to publish my... Read more

I have had similar experience. Especially the marketing department. I can't find out how many books have sold. Read more

I can't even begin to tell you of their shake down process without my blood boiling. I did two books with iUniverse. Big mistake. The first book cost me a bundle because of errors (my bad), but when ready for print, they got my name wrong on the cover! They are not the printers. They send all their work to a printer in Tenn. They have no control of their printing. You can hear in the background... Read more

I published with iUniverse in 2004 and had steady sales, had them even when I self-published through a private printer before that. Book was commercially published in Italy, Poland, China, and Viet-Nam after that and still sold steady on iU. I then bought a package from iU for about $798 in which they would send e-mail ads to targeted readers. Not one sale that I could see. Later the book... Read more

As an unknown, unpublished author, I researched for months trying to find what I believed to be the best print on demand (POD) publisher. I first tried the "Big Boys;" sent out several dozen query letters, received about six back, three of which said they "might" be interested, but wanted several chapters to read. Further discussions showed that they could publish the book, but it would not hit... Read more
