Author House is a vanity publisher. Although they make claims that they will market your book and pay royalties, they also charge quite a bit of money up front.

For an author who's looking to get published, it really comes down to:
* do I want to enter the market as a legitimate author (i.e. contract signed with a traditional publisher, professional editing, advance payment, publisher-driven & paid marketing, regular royalty statements); or
* do I just want to have some copies of my special book to sell to friends & family

If the second choice is what you're looking for, I think Lulu does a superb job -- doesn't charge the earth in fees and produces a nice-looking finished product.
