I found Xlibris to be good to work with. I have my book and consider the package I bought to have been great value. Some of your complainants are apparently racist and have such low literacy standards I don't know why they are trying to publish. Xlibris were pleasant to deal with and everything was done in a timely fashion. If people are getting books back with errors in them, they must have... Read more

They published my first 3 books all A OK starting 5 years ago---But now, everything seems to have changed for the worse/worst. This is April 9, 2015. They have had my current manuscript since Oct.1, 2014. Of course they had to get my money (only $700- discount promotion) from my credit card very first thing. Over and over - redo, redo, redo - inaccurately and errantly on their part about... Read more

I have published two children's books with two different publishers. I wanted to combine both books and make it a coloring book. this was to be used as a promotional item. When I spoke to the person representing this company, he said they could do coloring books. I should have realized there would be a problem when I couldn't understand the man on the other end of the phone because he didn't... Read more

I want to say that I am extremely happy with Xlibris Publishing. Excellent customer service from beginning to end. Even after my book has been published for a month, I get weekly support calls from them. They have released my book in so many places. They clearly know what they are doing. Add comment

My second book was published 03/09/2015. It contained many, many typos, errors, poor print quality. Spanish translation of one of my key poems, was altered. I don't speak Spanish, so I didn't notice. This company probably has less than 5 full time employees, and several part-timers. However, when you speak to who you think is a new Consultant on your book, the person sounds much like the...

After some fast talk and promises, I agreed to having Xlibris do the publishing. A mistake, in retrospect. First Red Flag which I should have noticed is Xlibris will not accept any checks; they insist on a credit card so they can get their money well out front before they do anything, and getting the credit card people to help won't work because they (credit card people) say that if you gave them...

The other day i asked them to reduce the price of the book , they said it would cost me 200.+ dollars to do this. Why would this cost me, they said i would make one dollar in Royalty and they would loose three dollars!!!! But i said the book is not making... Read more

3 months ago, when checking "My Royalties" on the Xlibris website, there were: 1 "hard cover" book sold and 3 e-books. A few days ago i tried to log-in again and: 1) the password was not working - i changed it; 2) - THERE WAS NO "PAPER" COPY SOLD! Misteriously diappeared! But: the company has a new name: XLIBRIS CORPORATION! Yes, they are a "corporation" now - SELL "CUSTOMER SERVICES" (with the... Read more

I was told that I had to charge an enormous amount for my book just so I could at least receive 25%. 5.00 a book woopy. ended up with only half the books listed because I kept tracked on sales with friends. Then as an after thought was told that No I had it wrong any retail sales were only 10%! 1.35 a book. Are you kidding? I am sooooo disappointed. with limited income how do you go farther to...
