April Fool published with Xlibris

April 1, 2003 Xlibris published my book and it has been a nightmare for the last 16 years! For whatever reason, they kept saying they were no longer selling my book, yet 16 years later I managed to pay full price on Amazon to buy my own book! It came in and it is new yet Xlibris said it was "used" since they pulled it in 2005...then in 2004. They cannot make up their minds or read their own reports? They also managed to put the 13 digit ISBN that came out in 2007 on a book they stopped printing years before, which was not selling according to them.

Xlibris scammed me for $700 for a publishing project which they totally botched. Sent them a finished .pdf needing nothing. They returned a proof with everything messed up: line spacing, format wrong, pictures in the wrong place. etc. Missed deadline for Christmas...

They did not edit my book properly! When I asked, why? She said my manuscript had too many errors in it! lol I was also told that I could price my book, Night Signs, then told me latter that the book would be sold for $21.00 and that was just how it was going to be! They also withdrew money out of my bank account without my permission! Stay clear of them!!!

For those who remember the old lady, in the early eighties Wendy's commercial, with great anger she asked "Where's the beef!" I invested close to $3000 in publishing outlets for my book "The Great Centennial", months ago, and have seen no record of sales or income....

Xlibris - Bjogus Content Evaluations;

1.1
Details
After a down payment of over $400, Xlibris Content Evaluators rejected my manuscript 3 times citing bogus libelous or privacy issues. I revised the manuscript two times based on their vague description of the issues. When they rejected the third revision, I requested cancellation of my contract and a refund. instead, they hit my debit card account for another $384. On my next call to company, I was told that my refund was being processed. I have since called or emailed at least five times inquiring about the status of my refund request. Those calls have gone unanswered.

Xlibris - Scam company

Wrote a book over ten years ago. I am disabled . Lost my password to my email address. Gave Xlibris thousands. Now they are bringing me through a long drawn out process, longer than you think ., to recover any information that might prove I am who I am. My dad is my legal guardian and they are making his go through same thing. From other reviews I read, sounds like they are a money stealing company

So, I signed with them few months ago. They offered me “huge” discount for what I thought an all in package. It’s still a bit pricey, but since I know only a little about authorship, so I think they can mentor me to be a good author. Then my publishing consultant,...
