At almost every step in the publishing process, I found Xlibris to be slow to respond and the work that they provided to be disappointing. The book, finally published in hard copy and paperback on July 20th, is STILL not available in e-book format almost two months...

New authors should be warned not to submit manuscripts to these scammers. Their literary rights will be infringed in every way and they will have no recourse, because my attorneys have said that they are like looking for the Loch Ness monster. Writers, do not lose your...
