The Truth about AuthorHouse

99.9% of authors shouldn't use AuthorHouse, iUniverse, PublishAmerica. http://aprilhenry.livejournal.com/7826.html

Publisher's Weekly reports:
The Kansas district judge presiding over the defamation lawsuit brought by romance writer Rebecca Brandewyne against AuthorHouse ordered Friday that the POD subsidy publisher pay Brandewyne $200,000 in punitive damages. This past May, a Wichita jury found AuthorHouse guilty of publishing a book, Paperback Poison, in November 2003 by Brandewyne’s ex-husband that libeled her. The jury awarded Brandewyne $230,000 in actual damages.

The judge said that, based on its business model of dealing in volume, AuthorHouse "cannot read every book cover to cover."
