I was bombarded as I was writing my latest book, by an Asia/American (every member of Xlibris seems to be!!) woman called AMANDA. I told her I had only just started writing and didn’t want to sign up with XLibris. I was then bombarded regularly by her. This woman would...

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.

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.

'Xlibris Staff is Clueless and Not Recommended
It has been over a year and I still have not been able to get the websites nor Xlibris to correct this problem. One of the biggest problems with Xlibris was no communication from one department to another when they pass your manuscript around. Another issue I had was...

I think it should be obvious - if a company promises to publish and market your book without even reading it - then it is a scam.Seriously. The 'consultants' are all overseas as well and probably received a 2 day training course in publishing before hitting the phones....

Xlibris would not give me back my refund. The quality of printing was poor. They are put to get your money. I lost nearly one thousand pounds. I have learnt my lesson. I am now endig my contract with them. I never want to deal with them again..
