It's unfortunate that I've spent so much money with IUniverse to deal with sarcasm, insults and even worst the sales staff who sold this agreement hides behind a group of joiners. There is absolutely no support for the writers. Someone being a smart aleck is not a...

I commend the authors for exposing IUniverse to the public. It's time to stop them from stealing money and using incompetent people to "review". This is a POD company the customer is the publisher. I Universe is making money on both sides of the table they are charging...

After publishing two books with iUniverse, I can only believe I made them a lot of money which they did not pay me royalties on. I know people are buying them. I get reviews, hits on my facebook pages etc..., yet the royalty payments do not match the level of interest.

Agree! I had the same issues. I'm trying to locate a different publisher, but don't know who to trust after being burned by Iuniverse.

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...

iuniverse told me if I was going to change the cover, I had up to 50 changes I could make with no extra charge. OK. There were a few things I wanted to tweak. I got the book back and, sure, the new corrections were done, but all the old mistakes that I had...
