Xlibris in Wangaratta, Victoria County - Living ***

Details
XLIBRIS are pure *** Don't believe a word they say, you'll be promised the world, you'll become a famous author LMFAO They even claim Hollywood contacts for $15.000 I'm that disgusted with these *** who know exactly what you want to hear, guid you along promising the world. When my book arrived, l nearly died with shock, spelling mistakes along with no punctuation, nothing! Certainly not what l originally wrote, very dissatisfied. DON'T SIGN ANYTHING I can't believe the reviews on here, how on earth can this business continue? Does anyone know there complaints email, as they must have phone lD, my calls are never answered, funny that, are they frightened what they'll hear?!

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 - 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.

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,...

This is what we are currently experiencing. Fonts and photos are not appropriate; have been through about 10 "associates" who do not implement our changes.

They have no professional editors or copy editors there and make the system of writing a short, non-fiction children's history book impossible. What a shame.....Then they want a price point higher than Michelle Obama's book.

My book, although quite relevant will not sell. Scam.

One of their authors commissioned me to do the artwork for his book cover.. Stupid me didn't make him sign a contract, as friends and such... Now he and his publisher are using the illustration illegaly and guess what, the publisher gives a *** about this.. I've tried to contact them several times about this since early January... No replies on the matter, just the usual "mail to the customer service or give us a call"... All this while the author is threatening me to have xlibris drag me(!!!) to court...
