Is Authorhouse Publishing Genuine? by Major001(m): 4:14pm On Feb 17, 2010
Hi Guys, I am considering publishing my book with Authorhouse. I want to find out if anyone can give me a heads up on the genuity and legitimacy of the company. Thanks.
Re: Is Authorhouse Publishing Genuine? by MyneWhite1(f): 8:15pm On Feb 17, 2010
I have just recently published with Authorhouse and I believe they are genuine. My book is on sale in bookstores in America and the UK and will soon be coming to Nigeria. Check out these sites for the book, Authorhouse made it possible. Contact me by email and I can give you the name of my consultant there. All the best.

Those publishing house cost a lot of money compare to Nigeria currency exchange, or does one go about it And Myne White, how much money does it cost you to get it published because I'm like interesting in them too, please explain,
Re: Is Authorhouse Publishing Genuine? by MyneWhite1(f): 11:14pm On Feb 26, 2010
Authorhouse has several package for their publishing but I took the cheapest one which cost $549 then. This does not involve editing or any other service except copyright registration and distribution. One has to pay for other services if you want but they have been OK and I like the attention I got from the people I worked with. The name of my consultant was Wes LeRoy  and his email is WLeRoy@ authorhouse.com. Tell him that Myne Whitman, author of a Heart to Mend sent you. I wish you the best and if you need an affordable  editor or proof reader, I may be able to help.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and cheers,

Myne @ mynewhitman.com

Visit this site http://thelegitinternetmarketing.blogspot.com. It will answer most if not all of your question about choosing the right publishing house.
Re: Is Authorhouse Publishing Genuine? by einsteine(m): 12:55pm On Apr 23, 2010
Authorhouse is not a legitimate publisher. Legitimate publishers charge you nothing to publish your book. What Author House does is vanity publishing. They are simply printers just like the folks asking you to consider them in this thread. There wont be any editing and the promotion of the book is entirely up to you. Anyway, do as it pleases you.
Re: Is Authorhouse Publishing Genuine? by RobJ: 9:13am On May 27, 2010
Authorhouse is a publishing services company. They make their money from authors not book buyers. Therefore, they make no effort to ensure that your book is successful (and virtually none are). If you want to be a successful author you need to get published by a true publishing company. These take no money from authors instead making their money from sales of the book. All the books you see on best seller lists and on most bookshop shelves are published by this sort of company. Also because the author has not had to pay anything to get his/her book published, there is no risk for the writer (instead there's a big risk for the publisher!) Unsurprisingly, these book publishers are very selective about the books they publish. It's virtually impossible to get accepted by a large publishing house unless you've got an agent and a string of previous best sellers to your name. The smaller publishing houses, however, a much more approachable for first time authors. An example of a publishing company that's looking for new authors is Knightstone Publishing. Have a look at their website. http://www.knightstone-publishing.co.uk

hey everyone,
Another great choice is schiel & denver book publishers, which actually market the book in a trade catalog to leading stores in USA, Canada and Europe. They've also got book publishers offices in the UK.
