I published my book with Author House in 2004.


I have not received any royalty payments from the date of publication till date and over the years I have seen my book being sold all around the world at different prices in new and used copies, when I asked Author House why, they came up with different reasons
and maintained that I have not been making sales.


Author House also claimed that my book expired in 2006 because I did not pay the channel access fee for that year.


This year my brother- in -law purchased from the UK two copies of my book in
 new copies and I have the receipt in my possession!


I would like to join other victims to file a Class Action Suit against Author


I also feel it is time that the Attorney General investigates Author
House. It is pretty obvious that they are fraudulent, ripping authors off their royalties and discouraging creativity. All you have to do is take a look at the number of complaints against Author House on the web which is piling by the minute because no one is taking any action to stop their scam. This scam if unchecked would grow and eventually become expensive to every one

royality checks

AUTHOR: ellison - (United States of America)

I published with Authorhouse and I have received royality checks. The books are not just reprints, I have met the people that wrote the books and I have read the books and wrote reviews for the books.  Authorhouse offers a service that some people choose to use.
