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...

This company is a pure fraud, definitely something that you should be very aware of, and they are not the only ones that will do this to you. I have, unfortunately, allowed myself to become a victim of IUniverse. Scam company. I’m a published author with IUNIVERSE...

I published with iUniverse in 2004 and had steady sales, had them even when I self-published through a private printer before that. Book was commercially published in Italy, Poland, China, and Viet-Nam after that and still sold steady on iU. I then bought a package...

I'll keep track on this one (iUniverse) since I have been looking for a better company to self-publish a book.

Iuniverse will steal from any author

They provide bad service and you will not get your correct money for your books...they own me 5 years worth of rayalties and will not pay me....print on demand will cause you to get ripped off...be careful. They manufactured mistakes and charged me extra to correct the mistakes that they had put in my book...they delayed the printing time to charge more money and they completed the cover of my book wrong and charged me again to fix it .....they are just real bad people and you cannot trust them I will get a lawyer to look into this matter .

Iuniverse in Hazleton, Pennsylvania - ABCDEFG I Love the Alphabet and It Loves Me

I Universe is a money making cash cow for themselves. They continue to call and ask for money to promote books and then you hear nothing from them until the next time. They are a scam!!!!!!!!! I want my book back and for them to have NOTHING to do with it anymore. My book was written and illustrated for young children or those with special needs. I can't even get them to send me a copy of the book much less sell it. I will NEVER do business with them again. It is a shame that they are cheap to publish with but you get what you pay for!
