My mother in law spent $5000 with them and received less than $2 in royalties. They pubished 2 of her childrens books and supposedly marketed them. Right!! We told them she died but they keep calling with more promises. Beware!

Paid over $6000 for their marketing, which was very insufficient. Save your money and get your own marketing person. You will get more bang for uour buck.

Book Publishing And Marketing Services Review

This company is by far the most unprofessional company imaginable. The representative Jayson Payo is by far the worst and totally harrassed me by calling, hanging up and calling again. This was all before signing any contracts. Please do not do business with this company. Totally dissatisfied! !!

Xlibris published my book but failed to market it. Iost valuable sales and royalty due to their mistakes and mishandling. They even withheld the galley prints on copyrighted materials they even tried to sell me my own galley prints. And lied about even publishing it. Their so call retail marketing only buys on demand and will not market books unless there is a demand for it.

I contacted Xlibris when looking at publishing options. The phone calls from the same "publishing consultant" in the Philippines kept coming even after three emails from me to decline their services. Phone conversations seemed to me to centre on a one-way, script,...

I thought they sounded like the solution to all my publishing needs. But after my book was sent to me I realised that they were just a scam. -They intentionally made the novel too large (A4) and then charged me to change it. -They added in mistakes that were not their...

I used Xlibris for my first book. It turned out good and as planned. In mind that any publish company can accomplish as such. Then the calls and calls from the Filipins. Ever wonder why sales representatives have bad English? Why do I know the call Centre is from...
