(iUniverse) https://infogalactic.com/info/IUniverse Now to make things clear, I never signed up my book "CandyCali" to be in "Book-to-Screen PitchFest" with iUniverse, but they put it in PitchFest without my permission.... *It's a breach of contract giving away my...Read more
I didn't like
- Misleading and fraudulent practice
- Did not receive royalties
This is my opinion. After publishing two books with iUniverse, I can only believe I made them a lot of money which they did not pay me royalties on. I know people are buying them. I get reviews, hits on my facebook pages etc..., yet the royalty payments do not match...Read more
I began not to trust them when they started to call too much. At least twice a week. Are you done yet? Are you done yet? Are you done yet? How about now? It was ridiculous and became very annoying. I cut off all contact and self published and I'm very happy with the...Read more
Iuniverse Publishing Service Review
The drove me insane.... Stole all of my sales.... Ruined my career and business. And bankrupted me.... I spent over 50,0000 messing with them and trying to b a writer... My GM settlement and SSDI money is down the drain and im old with nothing but a crazy check from the government....
Iuniverse Package Review
Horrible. Fooled my Aunt into some expensive marketing package that cost $500 per month. Royalties were only $20 per month. Impossible to cancel.
Iuniverse Publishing Service Review
They failed to put in the design back cover of the book.They failed to make correction of errors, and wanted to charge me $500 to correct. They then called me to pay them $500 to take 10 of my $11books to the book fair. Told him I refuse to give him money to pay for his vacation to Florida!!!
Other Product Review
Worst service ever. Occasionally get a royalty check for under two dollars. RIP OFF RIP OFF RIP OFF is all i can say.
Endless, non stop phone calls and e mails from these vultures, trying to sell services, even if you've already made it very clear you aren't interested. One effective way to stop the calls is to cancel your agreement, at which time nobody will ever contact you again,...Read more
I received royalties at first when friends and family bought on their (IUniverse) website. Amazon, Barnes and Nobel all sold my books (published 2 in 2014). These books were supposedly purchased by Lightening but this quickly dried up. I purchased 6 on line myself from...Read more
BEWARE of this company!!!!! They are not honest people, and very unprofessional... Aside from that, they will *** you into paying for marketing packages that they know they can't fulfill... They will drag the process out for months after taking your money, and will...Read more
I will conclude after my book had been published - i'm tied with them as I paid upfront. It has been an ordeal and continuing - I just want to get to sign off! I will conclude after my book had been published - i'm tied with them as I paid upfront. It has been an...Read more
Terrible customer service unless you are calling to pay for your contract. Three months to publish a book? Really? Three months later, after paying over $1100 for my contract, they are still in the "reviewing stage". I am now dealing with my third personal consultant...Read more
First off let start by saying I wish I had read the reviews before i wasted my money with this company. Although ya might say to yourself you can't please everyone so maybe it's just those few. well I wish that was the case because a lot of what other people are saying...Read more
My royalties were sent to an old address in February 2016...which I failed to update (my bad). I never got the check and when I called to report that, they say they have to wait six months before they can issue a new one. Six months...really? I talked to a few...Read more
