Review : Author House – Self Publishing

April 5, 2010

Disclaimer: I just want to say for starters, this is a first time review. That is, I’m picking over the site for the first time right now. I’m also looking at this site as A) a fiction writer with a novel to publish B) a way to accomplish my own goals or one day getting national bookstore distribution.

So this is

Starting at $599 with a long list of services. With one big exception – Print on Demand (they don’t do that)

AuthorHouse is only a self publish service*

They offer ISBN, Color Cover, ‘Online Distribution’ & ‘bookstore availability’ and a complimentary author copy, for your 600 bucks.

Initial Reaction: No Interest

So let’s break it down.

This is a money making business that preys on people’s dreams. It’s vanity press. The packages are not designed to get you out on bookshelves, or even on kindels, but to relieve you of your money.

While I am intrigued with their Booksellers Return Program – in which unbought books are returned and the bookstores get their investment back – without the demand, you’re just out another $700. And that’s annual.
