IUniverse...a professional relationship with excellent results
Abbott Press published my first book, 'The President's Weapon'. There was an issue with the printing that they corrected to my satisfaction. For my second book, 'Dead Water', I was bumped up to iUniverse. Though probably 4 to 6 weeks out before release, my experience...

Iuniverse/Author Solutions is designed and set up to fraud you. They are set up in several layers and say one department does not know what the other is doing which of course is not true. As I told customer service spokesperson Dianne Rose, everyone is responsible for...
