I have posted twice before and heard from a handful of authors who have lost $$$ trying to work with xlibris. It seems as though the following are the biggest complaints: little or no royalties, asking for more and more $ when it gets closer to release date, numerous attempts to contact reps who supposedly were fired, editing issues and harassing phone calls.

Xlibris is actually an off-shoot of Author Solutions the mother company to several publishing companies. In order to make an impact in getting authors their money back not only for costs but pain and suffering I need to hear from as many people as possible.

Please consider joining this suit even if you have moved on to another publisher. You deserve compensation for the anguish you have been subjected to by this company!

Product or Service Mentioned: Xlibris Publishing Service.

Reason of review: Problems with payment.

I have been with them for years on my second book and never saw one cent of royalties. I paid over 2,500 for their services yet I see my book everywhere.

I called them after friends have bought my book only for them to tell me that I haven't sold a copy. Please put me on this list Alexvanpo3@gmail.com

I would like to join as well. Even though my problem is a bit different as Xlibris is using an illustration of mine as book cover illegally.

The author didn't sign a licence contract nor did he pay me.. I'm getting threatened by the author Xlibris would drag me(!!!!) to court about this matter...

I've been trying to reach them since early January, no response on the matter, just had to hear I should mail the customer service.. They are making money off my artwork and it doesn't even bother them that they are committing a copyright infringement....

I have been trying to contact Xlibris with my concerns and I have not received any answers as of yet. It seems like they do not want to talk about it.

I would like to know how to join the lawsuit. I have not received royalties from two books published by Xlibris.

We spent several thousand dollars for the publishing, marketing, etc. Seems like my books are being sold by other vendors, but Xlibris is the only publisher/printer that would have rights to print my books.
