I wrote a book and published it through Xlibirs and I was very unhappy with the outcome of the staff. I took pictures for the book that I wanted to do changes for and I emailed the pictures to the staff and they let them expire and I never did get to make the changes I was so frustrated with this publishing company I am going to take my book to another publisher.

1. they trashed my book with their lousy editing by changing sentence structure, punctuation and by changing the arrangement of sentences within the paragraph. 2. the picture of a sun on the cover clearly shows Earth continents, they took a picture of Earth and painted it yellow and called it a sun. Pre publishing complaints about their cover art were met with "If you don't like it, send us a... Read more

I published a children's book and the pictures and text don't match. I want to republish this book with traditional publishers. Don't use xlibris Add comment

I don't know why all the negative reviews on here. I've had nothing but good happen to my anthology titled Xtoriez. I once put an article about my book on Wikipedia, of course it was taken down because wiki only allows popular books like Harry Potter or A Series Of Unfortunate Events to appear on that site, but someone from Xlibris copy and pasted the article on to another similar site. I... Read more

Yes how does a company do that. Send me picture that is already being used on a book. That and their phone calls for Royalties. I am going it alone with Piece of Cake for my second novel. This make's me mad. My book by the way is "Jack's Wild Ride". They need to check what they need. To not allow this to happen again. Amazon actually offers 70% on all their books why do I need them. They act like... Read more

Well, I can now say, without a doubt, that Xlibris is not only the least professional publisher I have dealt with but they are also bald-faced liars. After speaking with a fast-talking "consultant" of theirs (who employed the obvious rapport building salesman's tactic of repeating the customers name as often as possible) they, at first, refused to name a single author that they have published in...

Imagine that you are being robbed or have been robbed. I have added a few names of the people that had exchanged e-mails with me; they are more than that. When I first contacted the Xlibris Scam I dealt with Dexter He sent me an e-mail confirming my agreement based on the payment and to let me know the book was going to be sent to production to be published. This is one of the many comments... Read more

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
