Well thank you folks. I have been receiving such calls from a really nice gentleman.

The fee immediately scared me away. However, after several calls, I thought i check out reviews. Thank you for your review. I plan to run for the hills.

I will get my books published another way. Any suggestions?

The editing and publishing part was OK. The cover design was good. My mistake was being sucked in by a smooth-talking sales director into a $9000 publicity program. It was worthless. I did most of the work in preparing the materials released to the media. I had 6 or 7...

Yeah it is in no way a "publishing" company. It is just a scam.

Iuniverse in Orlando, Florida - I have not received royalties which are due in over year

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.
