Xlibris review in Brisbane, Queensland: Do not accept them as your self publisher

1.0
Details
I have posted back in September 2019. Not 1 cent in royalties as it shows I haven't sold a book in 5 years. So maybe I haven't sold any through their bookstores. When I look back on the way they handled my books publishing process I should have realised how third rate the suggested cover (not used), editing ( or more so lack of it) and the initial cost ( around the $4000/5000aud mark) for work that I ended up doing myself). Sad that so many have been hurt by this company. Count me in lumarie59@bigpond.com . NEWBIES Please check out and believe in the reviews before entering into any contract.

Xlibris review in Brisbane, Queensland: Scammed like everyone else

I got scammed like a lot of other people by xlibris and was hoping that if enough people who were also scammed, could get together and sue Xlibris. I am willing. Now if enough of us got together, maybe we could get our money back. Do I have anyone else who feels the same as me.

I paid a package for my first book with Xlibris. Half way through I received a call from the senior publishing consultant , asked for money for my second book. When I first talk to him, he asked how many manuscripts, have I got, silly I said three. He kept offering...

They should really be investigated by Interpol and the FBI for massive fraud but it never seems to happen although there is a class action suit against them going on right now in New York.

Well, to start off with I thought I had hit the jackpot finding a great company that was affordable. As time went on, the packages they asked me to pay for were in excess for $12,000. But when I explained I couldn't afford that, they hesitated and were somehow able to...

Xlibris review in Brisbane, Queensland: Dodgy marketing deals.

1.8
Details
I am still working it through with them and so wish to remain anonymous but basically I've been tricked out of almost $3000. I have money back details stating if I paid the first of three instalments I would not have to pay the second and third which would be covered from book sales. They took all three instalments and now claim the guy I was dealing with no longer works there. They claim they were working something out for me but it is now weeks since I have heard from them at all. The deal is clearly outlined in emails and I was assured it was legal because of that. I can forward these on request provided you can put them to good use with respect to doing something definite with them . Cheers.

Whatever you do, don't, don't, don't ever have anything to do with these people after you have completed your negotiations - if they are ever completed!

I have a friend in Sydney who has lost over $70,000 to these thieves. He is still dealing with them as well, but the outlook I imagine, will be less than satisfactory.

I wish there was an easy way to put you in contact with my friend without posting his email address on here.

Good luck!!!!!
