They have my book and money and I would like to be a part of a class action suit. Anyone contact me at Artbymarilyn@gmail.com please. The promises and lies need to see justice.

Well I must agree I spent $17000 self publishing with Xilibris and have not sold a single book through them in 12 months. The biggest problem is their prices and the fact that wholesale buyers know it is more than double what it should be.

Xlibris - Nine years and no royalties

I published "The Colors Of our family Quilt" 9 years ago and have not got one red cent in royalties yet. I see my book new and used being sold all over the web. I haven't got as much as a royalty report from them. I am at my end. there has to be a law!

This is what happened to me. It has been 10 years.

Friends and people all over the world have told me they purchased my book and I have not gotten one check.

I tried to go to another publishing company. I went through the process and they would not release my book.

I hate the company itself and everyone who contributes to this lie! Every time they call it’s to ask for more money for their overpriced publishing campaigns that don’t work! Dig *** and bury your money because it’s dead.

Xlibris in Lagos, Lagos - Subliminal Exploration

I can vouch for Xlibris that your book will published, but you are hooking on to mirage in respect of expected royalties. A trial is needed to confirm this

Xlibris in Newtown, New South Wales - Refuse to give me a refund.

I gave them $791 to publish my work. The editor said that they could not publish my work as is. It is a memoir. They said that I can't use real names. How can you write a memoir without using real names? There is nothing defamatory. I have sent them 10 emails with no reply asking to be released from the contract.

My advice to you is report them to the Better Business Bureau. If no results, then an attorney who might be sympathetic to our cause.

How well I know how unreasonable this literary company - so called- can be. They keep your money when things go awry.
