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...

IUNIVERSE - Drove me to ***!

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!

Iuniverse - Publishing Service Review from Monmouth Junction, New Jersey

2.0
Details
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 person, all of whom have been lovely people. There is no end in sight to get this book published. Highly disappointed and would not ever recommend.

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...

These people can't get anything right! When I first got the book published, I sat up through the night editing everything because they promised me delivery in time for Christmas if I submitted the finished manuscript by a certain date. I got it in in time. I...

I published my first book with I Universe. The process was ok but expensive. Now, 5 years later, they are not tracking any sales and I'm getting no royalties. I know that I've sold several books since 2015. They continue to contact me to put in more money for...

Ten years after publication (having them screw up my cover design), I am still catching sales calls from these people. They always aim their pitch on my pen name!

I published with iUniverse in 2004. It is my opinion that they very well might withhold royalties. As it is, they do not pay them until 2 months after the applicable quarter ends, so I get my Jan--March royalties in June, etc. They do not even post sales until months...
