Publishing is pissing me off.

I received an email with a link to my “completed” book, only to find a page totally messed up. There is also a problem with the cover. That’s not why I am pissed. Those items can be fixed. I am pissed because of their pricing. Every time I’d ask them what the cost of the book would be, they would tell me they cannot calculate it until the pages are processed, and setup.

I received an email with a link to where I can set my price. the only problem is that the base price is way too high for my liking. Keep in mind that I paid for the service to assist me with self publishing, and I know that they would deduct the cost of printing of the book once one is sold. The difference between the price I set, and their cost of printing is what the profit would be.

The problem is, their cost of printing is way to high. Now I see why they didn’t want to tell the the cost of the book. I would have pulled the plug then.

I am looking at CreateSpace.com, which is Amazon.com’s Print on Demand service to see if it is feasible.

Until this is resolved, one way or another, I will not mention the name of the publishing company.

I am hoping that they will do the right thing, but I am not counting on it.

P.S. AuthorHouse.com sucks.

  1. I signed up with Authorhouse a month ago once I got their package and reviewed it I decided to cancel. I have sent 8 emails and even phoned them. They tell me they will refund my money but no one is getting back to me. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    I am not impressed at all with them.

    Thx
