The Publishing Process

With Xlibris, you can fulfill your dream of becoming a published author. The process is faster and easier than you might think. We care about seeing your book published, and our expertise will guide you through each and every step.

How it works


You'll begin the booking publishing process by speaking with a publishing consultant about your book goals. You have the flexibility to create a custom project plan for the submission, production, and promotion of your self-published book.


Then, the process starts! You submit your materials for self-publishing after purchasing your customized published package. A representative will connect with you shortly after and discuss where and in what format to send your materials.


After all materials are submitted, a design team will work with you to create a book cover and interior book design you've always imagined.


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


When the layout of your book is complete, YOU will approve everything!

Your publishing consultant will explain each of these steps to you in more detail and answer any of your questions.

"I would recommend Xlibris predominantly because they have hardcopies whereas a lot of self-published companies don't have hard copies. The product looks really good. A lot of self-published books look like self-published books, mine don't and the Xlibris books don’t because they're of a high quality and that to me was the most important thing."
Sylva Kelegian author of God Spelled Backwards.

Joseph Cronin

"I felt that Xlibris was the most well-known and trusted brand that I could find. I have to say that the Xlibris team has been extremely personable, extremely helpful. We have never missed a deadline. In fact we've gone the other way, we've been early on some things. I got a little surprised. 'Oh, that's ready already?' And I think all of the people that I have dealt with so far have really delivered on what I thought the brand would deliver."
Joseph Cronin author of Theory You.
