XLibris is one of the aliases for Author Solutions, one of the oldest and biggest "self-publishing" scams out there. They claim to offer most of the services of a publisher, but in fact they provide only most of the services of a vanity press, while continuously...

Xlibris Not Off The Hook At 491 Lora Renee Hubbard Book Review

I came across Xlibris over a year ago messing around considering trying to sell some of my stories. I am STILL getting calls, even though I have sent multiple emails, and answered the phone and told them I am not writing anything currently and I do not wish to use them. I am getting tired of the harassment

Xlibris review in Fredericksburg, Virginia: Team has not contacted me in nearly 4 mos. during 2015

Submitted complete manuscript 543 pages, and a completed revised Index. Vendor claims that there is a problem with permissions. Asked for specifics and followed up with several pointed emails including suggestions and workarounds. Vendor claimed it would pay for two permissions as part of publication. To date this has not occurred and no galley copy has been sent to me for review. Xlibris has not responded to date. I am contemplating a breach of performance complaint. I feel like I have been defrauded at this point. Xlibris indicated that book had potential. They encouraged me to purchase base Christian publication package.

You have been defrauded. That's all Xlibris and Authors Solutions company do is defraud people. They are connected to the Mafia and use the books to launder money for the Mafia as well as just generally to scam everyone.

You can self publish for free if you google "how to publish on Smashwords" There is no reason for people to still be being scammed.

Hi. As much as I believe Xlibris is a terrible scam company, the fact that your books appear on ebay actually DOES NOT mean someone bought them and is reselling them.

What some people do is put the names of books listed on Amazon.com up on ebay and if someone bids, they then buy the book which they are selling at a higher price than amazon, and then send that book to the buyer. So you book may not have sold.

Xlibris have a bad habit of always telling people the person they initially delt with has left the company and then just pass unhappy customers around hoping you'll get tired of the game of pass the parcel and give up. But they are a scam company.

They lie and say they can sell your book when they do everything to make a book unsaleable.

You can try selling your story on Smashwords for no cost at all! Don't even worry about your contract with Xlbiris as they never honor the terms of their contracts on their end and you're just small fry to them.

Xlibris isn't truthful or straightforward in what they advertise and in what they tell you as an author. They are made up of smooth-talking employees who do their very best in persuading people to sign on as an author. I signed a contract/agreement-open-end...
