The Legal Aspects
Xlibris gives you the tools you need to become your own publisher.
You give us your manuscript, we work with you to format it and design the cover, and then the completed file is stored digitally. Your book is added to our online bookstore as well as other popular booksellers like Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. When someone places an order for a copy, we have one printed up and ship it out, and you receive a percentage of the retail price. We offer services for black & white books and full-color books in hardback, paperback and custom leather bound formats.
You retain all rights to your work and are free to take it elsewhere at any time. Read more about our non-exclusive, open-ended Author Agreement and find out why Xlibris is right for you.
Whether you're ready to publish or are just getting started with writing, our Resources area can help. Xlibris Resources is full of in-depth articles about all aspects of the writing life, as well as a comprehensive collection of markets, contests, useful websites, and tips. You can post information about upcoming events and read the latest publishing news.
Xlibris continuously strives to offer new publishing services that open the marketplace of published books to everyone, and will strengthen and enrich the landscape of books and writing as a whole. So have a look around, see all that we have to offer, and get published.
Rest assured that Xlibris will not share or sell your information to anyone.
