One of their authors commissioned me to do the artwork for his book cover.. Stupid me didn't make him sign a contract, as friends and such... Now he and his publisher are using the illustration illegaly and guess what, the publisher gives a *** about this.. I've tried to contact them several times about this since early January... No replies on the matter, just the usual "mail to the customer service or give us a call"... All this while the author is threatening me to have xlibris drag me(!!!) to court...

In the beginning Xlibris appeared to be very interested in doing business with me! They had workers calling me every few days. I was a bit worried about which package to purchase because I don't have much money. I was abused as a child and have only just got past a lot...

Did not edit my book properly, I found many, many grammatical errors! All they do is try to sell you on more products, they could care less about your book and marketing it. It's a COMPLETE SCAM! DO NOT use this company!!

Xlibris - The company went back on its word

1.0
Details
I contacted one of the officials Kevin Black and he assured me that I will be charged $515.00 for the publication of my book. I submitted my manuscript and after the initial payment of $199.00 another official (Mr. Laguna) from the company contacted me and said I will have to pay an extra amount of $199.00 to continue with the publication. I told them that was not part of the agreement. I told them to refund my money to no avail. I have contacted Mr.Black and Mr. Laguno and they have refused to refund my money. Beware!
