Not sure if any marketing is effective, as sales data is 60 days after the end of a quarter and almost half a year from 3rd party sellers like Amazon.

They have a great sales pitch. I questioned the language barrier. They claimed they were in the USA. After I signed up, I noticed the language barrier even more with the “project” person. I asked to cancel the project. They refused. They were pushy with me to work on project. I work full time, they called me while I was out of town, I told them I am busy... call me after Jan 1st. They asked if they could call me back in 2 hours. Then said they were off on Jan 1. Just a cluster. I never started anything due to an injury.
It took a bit to cancel, but they are charging me 150.00 bucks.

Publishing my book with Exlibris was quick and efficient. Many different staff members helped to accomplish the goal of publishing my book, and making marketing materials. I am impressed with the quality of the book that has been published, and am excited about how many online book stores carry it.

Getting your book published with Xlibris is a great and fun time. I had six books completed and find every department very professional and helpful.

This is my first experience with Publishing companies, and I have to say that Xlibris, and all of the people that I've dealt with during this process have been extremely patient, and professional on all levels. I will not hesitate to contact them when I complete my next book.

Xlibris has been very accommodating to my wishes as we have gone through the process of getting my novel in print.

The Wolf of Cameo Bay is my third book to be published by Xlibris. A change in management since the last publication means the author deals with more departments, but in a very personal way. The end product is a work of art. Were I not 81 years old, I'd publish with Xlibris again, but this is my last book -- I think. As I tell my students at PCC, write if you love it, but don't give up your day job just yet. If you love it, publish with Xlibris.

There very helpful, i just wish they would tell you about all of the payments that you would have to make ahead of time. Aside from that my first book came out in good hands, and they really want your book to success.

Review by Deissy1 month ago
The book came out very nice but I don't feel all of the necessary information that I needed to know was given to me when I was in contact with the initial consultant. He made it sound like I would be getting extended services such as the marketing of my book nationally and internationally in my package. I was unaware initially that for them to market the book locally nationally and internationally that it would be a great added expense. I also felt that the cost of the package was too much considering I already had an illustrator who did all the artwork and they had to do none of the artwork. Then every time I turned around I was getting a phone call from them wanting me to dump more money into their other services many of which I thought were already included. I was also told that I could have the book out by Christmas which they did get the ebook out by Christmas but not after having to hard ball them about doing so. Then to top it off the price of my little book is way too expensive through Xlibris and the other vendors because Xlibris set the cost. The cost should have been much lower so that the book was more affordable. I will have to think long and hard if I choose to work with Xlibris again.

*DO NOT PUBLISH WITH THEM*
I could write a full length novel about how awful Xlibris is. They were a pain to work with and I still have to work with them in the future. Mostly because I plan on revising my book a third time and republishing it. I'm not looking forward to the day I have to deal with them again. Their customer service is horrendous. You order from them one time and they bombard you with hundreds of calls trying to get you to spend more money. You would think it couldn't get worse. You're wrong. My ex publishing advisor called me and I picked up. She said, and I quote, "Why have you been ignoring my calls." She said it in a demanding tone that made me a little frightened, being as this surely crossed the line of client and worker. I told her that I had no obligation to pick up calls from Xlibris. I also told her to stop bugging my parents because they're both busy people. She didn't like it when I said that and literally cussed me out. Seriously, what is wrong with Xlibris workers?? I called to complain about the situation and it was disregarded. I had a headache working with them and will probably continue to have a headache until I'm officially done with them. My advice to you is to turn away and find another publishing company. Because Xlibris is not it.

Everything was great however, still awaiting my marketing materials. It would be nice to receive this earlier in the process to place/hand out prior to receiving the book.

Awesome Service. Xlibirs.com was able to guide me through the publishing process of my first self published children's novel 'Polly'. It has been an amazing experience. Quality and quickness in receiving the finished product with awesome author representative service providers, highly recommended.
