I self-published my novel with Xlibris in December of 2010. I should have read the reviews about how scandalous they are before I did so. After several costly editing processes I re-launched my book in March of 2011. I have to admit I spent thousands of dollars only to be conned into paying for a bogus promotion plan that netted no results in book sales. They are located in the Philippines and... Read more

My friend, who is an elderly woman wrote a book and had it published through Xlibris. She would tell me about all the money she was paying them to publish/edit her book and the numbers were eyebrow raising. I didn't know anything about self publishing at the time, so I assumed it was normal. She approached me one day and said her agent called her and said her book was being considered for a...

In 2012, I published my first book with Xlibris. I regret that. I, too have been constantly harassed... Buy your book, let us market your book, let us get reviews for your book ( for a price)! But when I asked for an itemized list of my book sales, no response! I know I haven't received an accurate amount of royalties. Xlibris saved and submitted ( without my authorization) my credit card... Read more

I published two books with Xlibris and I had a worker harass me night and day to buy my own books. She didn't listen to a word I said, but kept reading from a script. I mentioned that Book Depository sells my books cheaper and the agent kept asking me on and on to buy books. This harassment lasted for months. The latest insult from Xlibris was that they withdrew $149.00 from my Visa card for... Read more

The person below is an Xlibris staff member. No one is happy with the Xlibris scam Isimply cannot get anyone to respond to my e-mails. The company says my book has already gone on sale though they never edited it or told me about it and , though they are obligated to provide me with a sizeable number of free books for my book launch they have not and are not responding to e-mails. Does this sound... Read more

I can understand how some people may think they have gotten screwed over but I've had a great relationship with Xlibris. If you fall for all the hyperbole and think you're going to get rich in publishing, then I hate to say it....you deserve what you get...got. I've spent about $2,500 in total getting my book published and out the door to Amazon, B&N etc. They have leaned over backwards... Read more

Xlibris published the book inspired by my 7 years old child who wrote: THE STORY OF A PRINCESS AND A CAT FROM DAY 1: I was contacted by a "Senior Consultant" God they have so many of them and may I add they are a bunch of USELESS INDIVIDUALS. All they seem to care about is ripping your wallet apart and do a PONTIUS PILATE, if there's a problem; inevitably is what they are good at: creating them.... Read more

I signed a contract with Xlibris (subsidiary to Author Solutions) in November ’13 for: Editing, Interior Design, Exterior, Publishing, MARKETING AND A FEW SPOILS. Personally did the editing (because their editor literally, rewrote my book!); I gave the design form for the Covers, the colors, the text, the pictures and… everything. When the book “published”, i received the “test copy” and had to... Read more
