Total nightmare, wasn't edited, and no one would ever contact me to correct things. They also charged me for a script reading supposedly by a reputable movie company, and did no such thing.

I'm so afraid to trust another publishing company.

Worst of all, I have yet to receive any money for sold books. I was told that Barnes and Noble were to aid in promoting, but they refused to hang my poster in their store.

They are not a "publishing company" in any sense of the words they are a scamming company.

It would be really greatly appreciated if anybody can help me. Okay a friend of mine has just recently started working with Xlibris, he most likely already signed the contract.

Not sure how much $$ he paid already. After reading all the complaints, I am urging him to cancel the agreement he signed. Has anybody had any experience in this matter? If so please go into detail did you have to hire a lawyer?

How much time did it take? This book means a lot to me, it's about my dad etc.

I'm sorry, but you have been scammed. XLibris is one of the aliases of Author Solutions, which is one of the biggest and oldest "vanity press" scams.

A real vanity press would be honest about their terms: You not only write but edit the book, they print the book, and send it to you, you can *try* to market it, but good luck because you're not in the publishing business. A real publisher would provide full editing, publishing, publicity and marketing services, out of *their* pocket; if they don't think they'll sell enough of your book to make a profit, they simply won't buy your book.

(Yog's Law: Money flows *toward* the author. The only place an author should sign a check is on the back.) I suggest you google "Writers Beware", which is a warning and information site hosted by the SF Writers of America.
