I the author, refuse to publish the junk their editorial handed me. I, in trust of their editing capability pay their price. Why, I ask myself that same question, now. After editing, I'm sent an internal book block. I understand giving me the opportunity to make...

I published in 2001 on a $99 special and I have sold over 5000 paperback copies to date. But that bbok is HORRIBLE because they had me send a rough draft file, then an edited file yet published the draft and wanted me to pay to fix the book which was on the market. They changed ownership at some point.

They also, sometime in '08 or'09 made my book an ebook without ANY notice, contract, anything. I sent a stop order and they never honored it. Acknowledged it, but never honored it. And we have absolutely no way of knowing if the book sold ebook or not. No tracking mechanism whatsoever.

Now, I recently noted that my original royalty contract of IU is not being honored and I am only being given 10% royalties - it was 30%. They just changed things midstream. They also sell mine as an ebook, with no record or tracking mechanism, and never ever notified me or asked me if ebook was acceptable. We really have no clue how much we sell or if they pay us right.

Last, in 2010 or 2011 I got three royalty checks that all bounced, they'd send a new one, it couldn't be cashed. Over and Over.

Reviews of self publishing houses often give iUniverse high ratings. But that was before they were purchased by a holding company. Since then, their services have maddeningly deteriorated. The former reviews do not apply. In early 2009, iUniverse was purchased by a...

Do not pay for any marketing or promotion with iuniverse. Non of them work and that's how they scam more and more money out of people for nothing.

They are part of Author Solutions which has links with the Mafia. All scam. You will never be paid any royalties.

And what's worse you could have done it allfor free with kobo writing life. Putting books into print is a complete waste of money for a self publisher but people are making a LOT of money through self publishing.
