Please stop asking me if this is matter resolved. I Universe took the position that they were not going to publish my manuscript pursuant to the agreement unless I removed names, changed photographs or used a pen name. That will never happen. So I'm sort of stuck...

Read the contact. Communicated with sales and submission cyber staff. I reiterate I Universe is a total scam. I took the manuscript to a different POD company. This is not about the grammar in syntax i'm a printing agreement, this was about an agreement to print 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...

When we first published with iUniverse in 2005, they were a good company. We felt we received what we paid for and were happy with the quality of the product. A year or so later, we published with them again. However, in September 2007, iUniverse was purchased by...

First and foremost I am 99.99% convinced that they do not pay their authors the royalties they are due. I know for a fact that I have sold to friends and family than what they have paid me in royalties. Not to mention the books that were and are being ordered from...

This is my opinion. 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...

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.

I began not to trust them when they started to call too much. At least twice a week. Are you done yet? Are you done yet? Are you done yet? How about now? It was ridiculous and became very annoying. I cut off all contact and self published and I'm very happy with the...
