Xlibris will need to improve their entire team to be considered a well respected publishing company! They took my money and did not edit my book correctly. People over their phones are very hard to understand. They are more interested in cash, than your success. Marketing is a joke, because they will send you ***, and unedited information regarding your book's highlights. They are at times rude, and resource-less. They are not a good support...

Telly Tales, The Adventures of Telly the Owl was published by Xlibris in 2010 with countless grammatical mistakes, and missing pictures that were part of the story! Marketing with the exception of a few websites connected to the publisher, were non-existant! What little success of the book was self promotion. Family encouraged me as author to do a sequel, making Telly Tales III, Telly Owl, Family and Friends. The third and last edition of the...

Saarah D'Armill is my Author's name I have chosen. My real name is Nicole Laverick from Australia. I published my book through Xlibris in July 2015. Many times I asked Xlibris how many books have been sold but they never answered. My book is sold through Amazon and Kindle; both of them told me they didn't know me even though my book are on their site for sale. I never received any royalties from Xlibris for my book. Xlibris set up a homepage...

Xlibris Promise of care and a total disregard once you paid. No intention of fulfilling there promises. I don't think that thay could publish a book that was already done for them .

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 Customer Care Review

5.0
Nothing but assistance, great customer service, always answered my questions. This is not a place to get rich, it is a place to get your book in the world, all i cared about. If there are any misunderstandings it is because you, the author, didn't read the contract or made assumptions that were inaccurate.

I have been given runaround when it came to royalties for my book. I am Irish and living in Ireland where writers and artists have 100% tax exemption. So why do I get snowed with US tax regulations and filling out obscure forms etc. On present experience I would not go here again for my two new books that I wish to publish soon. Is there nobody in xlibris who can cut through the s. and make this easy for me. W7 forms and all that stuff are...

Richard Browne Move on me friend,you don't have a chance,

I liked
  • Publishing efficiency
I didn't like
  • I hated my royalties experience
XLIBRIS published my novel 'Zaide'. When it comes to royalties, they have snowed me with US documentation which I know nothing about - I am Irish and living in Ireland. Can the publisher not assist in simplifying this for me. Irish tax law provides for 100% tax exemption for writers and artists and now I cannot get my royalties unless I take out a PHD in US tax law which I see as not having any relevance to me. I think somebody in your...

Xlibris has not been paying me my royalties since December of 2015. Every time I call they say that I need to speak to their financial center, but that I can't contact them directly, but they would 'expedite a request' to them to get the matter resolved asap. They made two measly payments that probably total just under $80. This is nothing close to what my royalties sheet on their website indicates at $410.52 which has not changed in over a...

The company contacted me and immediatly started asking for payment plans before even reviewing any of the contents within the book. Each time a consultant contacted me it was fron a local number, even thoug they said they were from indiana. Long after I told them I was no longer interested, they continued to harrass me for over a year. I got a call fron a new number every week. The last call I got I told them I requested to be on the no call...

Anonymous Its gotta be a scam. It all sounded too good to be true. I spoke with a consultant earlier, and caught her in a possible lie after doing some research.

Dave Yes, it's a scam company. Do not believe anything they say.

After balancing my checkbook, I noticed there was a charge for the author learning center for two months, a charge I did not authorize. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY FOR ANY PUBLISHING NEEDS. THEY CHARGE YOU FOR SERVICES THAT YOU NEITHER AUTHORIZE NOR NEED TO MARKET YOUR WORK!!!! It is a scam of a business that is run very shabbily!!!!! After they published my work (I had previously been published by two traditional publishers in the past) the print...
