How To Get Published

Do you want to take the next step in your journey as a writer? Let us help you by turning your manuscript into a published book. Below are the steps you need to take to self-publish your book. But don’t worry—with our help and guidance, you can get to your destination with ease and efficiency.

Talk to an Xlibris publishing consultant

Before going on any journey, you need to first be familiar with the landscape. Our publishing consultants will be more than happy to serve as your guide. Tell us about your book and goals so we know how we can best help you realize your creative vision.

Choose your publishing package

Once you tell us more about your needs and requirements, our publishing consultants will give you suggestions on what services will best suit you. You can go with our recommendation or take your pick from our wide array of publishing packages that cater to various formats, genres, and budgets.

Buy your publishing package

Once you’ve chosen your publishing package, we will then connect you to our Payment Central team who will process your purchase. You will be then sent an agreement form via email, which you need to review and sign.

Submit your work

Any last-minute changes to the design can be made before approval with a publishing services associate.

Review and approve galley proofs

You’re almost at the finish line—the last pit stop. Review the galley proofs sent to you, make corrections if there are any, and send in your approval. As soon as we receive your final approval, your book will be available for sale on our website within 3 business days.
