*Consumer Comment: Don't use either of those publishers
In considering the publishing of my new manuscript and how best to make it into the best possible
marketable book, I saw AuthorHouse, Inc. on the Internet. While I was not sure how a self-publishing book would reach the market place, and other things having to do with whether the
manscript could realize its full potential, I was willing to look into it. Therefore I contacted AuthorHouse and got a return call from a Timothy Murphy, a "publishing consultant", who offered to send me a packet of information. After I received the info, Mr. Murphy called me several times to ask
me to review the contract which was included on the packet. He told me that he was able to give me a special deal if I signed-up now. In December(2010) and January (2011) I sent a $1000.00 to
AuthorHouse, before even sending it one page of my manuscript.
Later, I received an offer from a mainline publisher to publisher my manuscript, which included all
editing,publicist fees ($24,000.00), distribution, etc., including a substanial advance, plus a much higher royality percentage. In other words, they wanted to help me make my manuscript into a truly marketable book. AuthorHouse has done NOTHING, but take my money and won't give me a refund of the $1000.00. That's my cpmplaint!!
