book money books people royalties author sales service marketing cover

IUniverse is withholding my royalties.

Complaint: '09 was the one & last time iUniverse send me ck for $41.34 royalties on my bk published in '05. Nothing since even thou I showed them how it is promoted all over the Internet in soft cover & e-book in several languages. And searching the Internet I find dozens of complaints like mine. How many $$$$ is iUniverse holding? Their excuse when I contacted them was:"......sorry but we can't post reports unless we receive information from our channel vendors." In '08-'09 when I complaint their excuse was:"You only have $19.95 in your royalties account. Cann't mail ck for less than $25. but when I wrote complaints on Internet, the $41.34 was mailed to me by return mail. I see enough complaints on the Internet now, iUniverse, what are you waiting for?

Like so many of the others who have complained, I agree that I-Universe has morphed into a consumer unfriendly and difficult company to work with. I now have a book with them and have paid nearly $4,000 over a five month period and have seen nothing but stalling, ineptitude, and borderline incompetence from those persons assigned to work with me on my book.

They make promises to contact me and don't do what they say they will do. Today is another example of that. Their service agreement is legalize mumbo jumbo. I will seek an attorney in Bloomington to confront this horrendous company.

Too bad.

A few years ago I published a book with them and had a good experience. Not so presently!
