I'm a trainee as a publishing consultant at Xlibris. I didn't know there were so many complaints about this company. Have any of you tried calling customer care?

" Like the old saying goes Pay your money take your chances." I published my first book with Xlibirs and I will say it was no "walk in the park". I will tell any potential author Edit your manuscript and have the book ready to go when submitting it to any publishing...

You didn't "submit to a publishing house" you paid a *** artist vanity "publishing" scam. One has nothing to do with the other.

Real publishers never ever charge authors so you are all fools thinking that you can pay to be published.

They know you are fools and that is why they scam you. They are still disgusting though

Quite simply, Xlibris is a fraudulent, dishonest and incompetent, disaster zone. Xlibris is nothing more than a quick-buck scam printer, posing as a "print-on-demand publisher", and it has one of the highest complaints percentages for a small business of it's type...

My own experience has brought me to the conclusion that they are all criminals. My request for sales details and royalty calculations met with complete silence for two years.

Finally, it was delivered. On examination, it did not mention a number of books that I know were sold through Amazon (UK) including 5 nos that I bought directly from Amazon without bothering to buy at an 'author's discount'. Fraud! Then two days later I received a letter informing me that 30% will be deducted to cover US income tax and that a 50% 'fine' would be imposed by the US government because I hadn't registered as a 'taxpayer'.

Would such money withheld ever be passed on to the US government? Perhaps the US government is in on the fraud as well. Just think. why would an author, British, living in Thailand, dealing with Xlibris in the Philippines and Australia, write a book about a British institution that would only sell in Britain have to pay 30% tax to the American government?

During the dozens and dozens of calls that I received from their sales people, I was not once warned about a 30% Government Tax.

I have just been told by an Xlibris sales person that I pay tax because I am dealing with an American company. I now know that in future, I should never deal with an American company.
