Seriously, they are the worst. I'll keep this short. I was conned and lied to into using them. Immediately after payments, I was transferred to other representatives that don't seem to know a thing about publishing. I read more reviews, all that said what I'm about to...

This is my 4th manuscript with I.Universe a print on demand company. In addition to getting attitude from a "check in coordinator" someone who probably just came out of high school is attempting to do a book review and tell me what I can not can not write. Even worst,...
