Since the takeover by another company iUniverse has become a place to stay away from!
#1 Books that had been selling 10, 20, 30, and even 40 at a time dropped to 1 or 2, or none, immediately after the new owners took over.
#2 Since then it has been impossible to check monthly sales. They are only posted approximately every three months, or thereabout.
#3 Sales appear on the Sales & Royalties page, but have disappeared the next time the author checks. It makes one wonder what is going on.
#4 Now iUniverse is retaining taxes for other countries besides the USA. This makes it complicated when filling out one's tax returns, especially as most authors seldom receive more than they paid to have their book self-published in the first place.
#5 The most books ever sold for one author by iUniverse is 37.000. That was for the work titled "If I Knew Then..."
Therefore, as the ego trip has long been over with me, and because of all the above reasons, I am canceling all eight of my titles with this POD House. It is hard to stay with a company when the trust is gone.
Post a Comment new!
