Inaccuracy in their email | Iuniverse review from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
Got an email from IUniverse, which listed success stories. One was that Randy Arrington's iUniverse book Kerosene Cowboys made into a movie starring Mario Van Peebles, Cam Gigandet, Rachel Leigh Cook, Shane West and Bill Pullman. The movie has been retitled Red Sky, and looks like it is dead. But that isn't anything to do with IUniverse. What worries me is that one of the names are spelled wrong, Rachael Leigh Cook is Ael, and Mario Van Peebles is directing not starring. Not big things, but it seems to show a lack of accuracy. And these people are offering us editing for payment.
Possible legal actions | Iuniverse review from Windsor, Connecticut
i see that there are quite a few authors who never got any royalites from IUniverse. it looks like their website is blocked where we are supposed to see our sales - the way it is described in our contracts. this might fall under embezzlement or fraud category. if we have enough people in the same position we can engage a lawyer to represent us in a class action, and i have one to consult with. i emailed IU asking for the name/email of the CEO but have a feeling that my email will not be returned -like my other ones. my email is email@example.com. if anybody feels the same way i do - mb we can unite our efforts.
Misadvertising | Iuniverse review from Atlanta, Georgia
i deeply regret about not paying attention to the negative comments about IUniverse. i had a misfortune to publish a book with them. they go aggressively after authors promising the best servies, but not doing a fraction of it. every single department is trying to squeeze as much money as possible offering bogus services and not providing even the proofreading. now, when they cannot get any more money out of me, the do not return my calls or emails, unless i threaten to report them to IRS and suggest an audit - which is not such a bad idea. they are unprofessional, deceptive and need to be removed from the list of publishers.
Iuniverse will steal from any author
They provide bad service and you will not get your correct money for your books...they own me 5 years worth of rayalties and will not pay me....print on demand will cause you to get ripped off...be careful. They manufactured mistakes and charged me extra to correct the mistakes that they had put in my book...they delayed the printing time to charge more money and they completed the cover of my book wrong and charged me again to fix it .....they are just real bad people and you cannot trust them I will get a lawyer to look into this matter .
DO NOT UNDER SNY CIRCUMSTANCES DO BUSINESS WITH IUNIVERSE. I am writing to the Attorney General of Indiana all my grievances. They have all kinds of ways of getting money out of you. They lie and they refuse to answer your e-mails when you uncloak their...
I am so tired of dealing with iUniverse. Their policy of sending out Royalty checks really sucks. They are supposed to send them out at the end of every quarter. I find they are late every time. I have direct deposit which means my check goes out before the checks that...

I do not understand why my Book was all poetry and orignal one has been sold since 2006??? | Iuniverse review from Wasilla, Alaska
I have all the original manuscripts to my poems fron 2005/2007.Furthermore I was on Poet workshop with great reviews then I found Poets.com and LULU Website had all my poetry on her website,then they dissappeared. I have all documents to prove that I wrote them. I only want the royalties owed to me. Computer error might have occured. I would much settlew this matter out of court,however if you have sold my poems and did not get my authorization,you know that is against the law. Awaiting your Reply. Thank-You Donna K.

I have not received royalties which are due in over year | Iuniverse review from Orlando, Florida
I published a book with iUniverse in 1008. Received firest scheck. Had to call for second. Now have not received nor can gain information on my book in a year 1/2. Have a seond one ready, but need to know status before I do this again with this company. Iknow my book has been purchased by family and at least friends, and even adio overseas in Australia. I have been advised of none of this and cannot even access my account. No check has been sent. Yet I get e-mail everday for my next book (s). I hae some ready, but don't know what's going on with this company.
iuniuverse are lying thieves simply read the contracts and you will be blown away. They do not even pay royalties! If by chance you do recieve your royalties they now charge you money to send or deposit your royalties... They will continue to sell your book even after...
