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...

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...

Horrible. Fooled my Aunt into some expensive marketing package that cost $500 per month. Royalties were only $20 per month. Impossible to cancel.

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!!!

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,...

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...
