Iuniverse - They don't know how to proof read nor help you till the end
I dealt with this company back in 2009. They misspelled words in my book and didn't even bother proofreading it. It was published, but all the feedback was in the grammar of the book. I looked like a fool. I will never deal with this company ever again. I have two other books written now and I will not use them. Also, when you self publish, it's hard to get newspapers to pick up your story and no book signings. Many companies will not deal with self publishing companies. I spent well over 14,000 with these people, and what a waste of money. The Name of my book was "A Big House for Little Men" by Michael W McKay

They contacted me about a book festival in L.A. CA. They told me it will cost me $674.00 for my book entry. AFTER I paid the down payment the the contract for the service, I found out my book will be held until payment in full is complete. Here's the proof.

Well thank you folks. I have been receiving such calls from a really nice gentleman.

The fee immediately scared me away. However, after several calls, I thought i check out reviews. Thank you for your review. I plan to run for the hills.

I will get my books published another way. Any suggestions?
