XLIBRIS REVIEWS

Zeynab Salimova

imageI am grateful to Xlibris who believed in potential and strength of The Garnet Bunches, and supported me in this path. "

Mirela Roznoveanu

imageWe witness a transmutation in today’s publishing market. The mainstream publishers are looking only for books that could bring money in, they are not interested in aesthetics and originality. That’s why the publishers that charge for publication allow today an accomplished writer to publish their own book, as it is, and not edited according to the market requirements and political correctness of the main stream publishing houses. "

Steve McCarter and James Essig

imageXlibris is a great, low cost option for publications of books on a wide variety of subjects and support staff take the time to smooth out issues that can arrive during the publication process. "

Grace Rawlings

imageI am grateful to all the people from Xlibris who helped me to complete the publishing process. Without exception, they were helpful and patient and approachable. "

Jim Spencer

imageXlibris was very helpful during my journey. "

KJ Stewart

imageI have found the overall experience of publishing with Xlibris to be a positive one, with plenty of support, explanation and advice from staff who guided me through the process. "

Julie Bayl

imageThank you Xlibris for guiding me along the unknown path of publishing. Also thank you for your patience. "

Bert Johnston

imageI enjoyed the process of moving from manuscript to book format, and was especially pleased with the great cover created with the help of Xlibris. "

JA Bullen

imageWorking with Xlibris, has been a trying experience for all the right reasons. I have had the opportunity to work with industry pros, who have helped me to determine some of my own weaknesses in this venture of mine. I daresay, the single greatest experience of this launch, has been learning some of my limitations and growing as an author. "

Nancy DeBeer

imageThey had patience with me. After taking so long to finish my book they always just followed up and never pressured me into finishing. And they have been helpful, always answering my emails and calling. "

Paul Thompson

imageThe experience overall has been amazing, and we have had such a good time writing and publishing our work! We were always a little skeptical about self-publishing at first, however, we can safely say it was a success. Now the next form of success is to sell as many copies as we can! "

John S. Green

imageMy favorite part was exploring which poems to include and which to exclude, running it by writer friends I know and trust. I appreciated Xlibris’ steady structure and feedback. "

Dr. Jeffrey C. Fox

imageThis is my second book with Xlibris. Both times I did a lot of comparison and Xlibris came out on top in all categories I was looking at. My favorite part of the process with Xlibris is that they are extremely prompt in everything they do. "

John S. Green

imageI appreciated Xlibris’ steady structure and feedback. "

Shawn Gale

imageMy experience with Xlibris has been first-rate. I’ve established solid, professional relationships with the reps of the different departments. They’ve always worked diligently in helping me produce the finest product possible, and have went the extra mile to ensure I’m always happy. "

Jack Nightengale

imageMy favorite part of the publishing experience with Xlibris is their service and the shared compassion for publishing any and all novels. I feel that the Xlibris staff is well versed and very helpful when it comes to questions, and editing. I feel as though I gain a friendship with each staff member I talk to and have enjoyed the conversations and help they provide. "

Keith Scott

imageI would like at this time to thank the folks at Xlibris publishing for their help and advice, a well organized company that takes you through the process step by step, a very good way to promote your first book. "

Francisco Ojeda

imageXlibris has always been professional and I have enjoyed every aspect of working with them. After working with Xlibris on three separate pieces, I have learned much about the process of publishing. "

Bill McDonald

imageWorking with Xlibris as my publishing partner has been great thus far. My favorite part of the process was when the pieces started coming together. When I saw the cover galley and the interior galley, I knew it was going to happen. "

Drew Stockwell

imageWell, the actual writing and the development of the story was my favorite part of publishing. As a self-publisher, I had to rely on my own instincts with help from Xlibris. I think Xlibris has been very helpful in this process. They’ve always had an ear to listen to my gripes, even when I found that the solution wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. It is difficult to balance your personal, professional, and writing life if you aren’t a professional writer by trade. And when you get to my age, you aren’t really in the habit of compromising. But I think when I look at the finished product, Soultrapped has come out almost as I would have hoped. And it looks great! "

JR Gonzalez

imageMy favorite part of being published by Xlibris was holding the actual book in my hand, seeing the posters and the business cards and knowing they are doing what they promised makes me proud and gives me inspiration to write more, to finish the other novels I have in my head. "

Steven Mitchell

imageThe process is very streamlined. I’m amazed how quickly my manuscript became a book. Xlibris representatives were helpful. "

Gerald Meyers

imageWorking with Xlibris has been both a joy and a privilege. "

Dave Gutierrez

imageThere were a few reasons why I ended up at Xlibris. First, I believe I lacked the confidence to go directly to a traditional publisher. I had never written a book. I was always focused on the end game. I wanted to see this story on film, I felt the best way to put myself in the best position for that was to self-publish the book and maintain the rights to the book. I really enjoyed learning the overall process of manuscript to finished book. Every step of the way I asked questions. "

Bert Johnston

imageI enjoyed the process of moving from manuscript to book format, and was especially pleased with the great cover created with the help of Xlibris. "

Anders Wennerstrom

imageXlibris matched what I dreamt of in my wildest fantasies. I’ve already published two books with them! With the help of intelligent marketing platforms and a very effective use of media, Xlibris has made it possible for alternative books to gain wider access to an audience. So, basically, what has happened here with the help of Xlibris is that they have got me to understand the value of my books. And the real grandeur in this, is that they have also helped me to understand the value of myself. "

Eva Poluha and Elehu Feleke

imageSeveral factors prompted us to choose Xlibris. The first contact with and continued support from our publishing consultant was one major factor. We can say that the ‘Professional Publishing Package’ was executed professionally. It was thrilling to hold the first print-out of the book!"

Shivi Darubra

imageI absolutely loved my experience with Xlibris. Everyone that has helped in this process has been so thorough and organized. They understood my vision by laying out what I wanted the book to look like and recognized the importance of this subject for me. They were able to provide helpful suggestions throughout the process and ensured to follow-up with me regularly. I liked the structure with Xlibris and highly recommend their services."

John Carver

imageI published a book with them and can only praise the professionalism of the process and the backup phone calls from the staff. Altogether a good, seamless experience!"

Lane R. Warenski

imageNot knowing anything about publishing a book didn’t matter, as their professionals walked me through each stage of the publishing process, from the formatting of the manuscript to the permissions for the cover graphics. At first I didn’t even understand the terminology of the publishing world but that did not matter as they guided me through each step."

Sharron Jones

imageI just published my first book with Xlibris “How To Start Your Own Cleaning Business”. I am very pleased with the total process! Xlibris staff are the best, very patient, efficient and responsive. I thought that I was going to drive them crazy with my constant calls and changes. They were very patient and understanding. I love my new book and I love Xlibris staff for a job well done!"

Faith Bays

imageI just published my first book with Xlibris, “Practical Guidance About Love, Sex, and Marriage”. I must admit that I am pleased with their services. They put my book on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. They also plan to take it to other book stores around the world. I thank God for their help. I thank God for the good package deal I made with them. They’re the best!"

William Rick Graham

imageI was very happy with them as a first timer."

Noeline Slowgrove

imageI have had three books published by Xlibris and am happy with all three."

Jean Farish

image The selection of a publisher is of utmost importance. Xlibris employs top quality experts and a wide variety of services designed to assist you on your publishing journey. Through various marketing and promotional events including the Coast to Coast Book Gallery, Authors Pitch Festival, and the Book Signing event, I had the opportunity to engage with authors, producers, and an audience of readers who showed interest in my book. Furthermore, these experiences enabled me to learn more about the publishing industry. I am currently working on my second book and will continue my endeavors in marketing and promotional services recommended by Xlibris staff. Again, I had an excellent publishing experience and Xlibris is the way forward. I express sincere gratitude to Xlibris staff for their invaluable service to inspire authors and showcase their works to bring excitement, inspiration, mystery, and pleasure to the readers whom authors are destined to serve.

Furthermore, Xlibris staff personalized the book cover design by selecting a path that amazingly reminded me of my meditational walks."

Jeanette Voyzey

imageMy journey into self-publishing has been an interesting one with Xlibris. I found the whole experience cathartic and in a way a healing process. The original idea to write my memoir was triggered by my granddaughter who lives in Australia. I see very little of her due to the expense of traveling and the miles between us. I wanted her to understand as much as possible about my life so she could get to know me.

The interesting result of my book, which I felt, was an honest appraisal of my early life, is the general response from some people, which varies from “Hey” to “Well done” and in some very minimal cases, complete disregard, which I feel is a lack of understanding of the meaning of the written word. In response to this apathy, I launched “Ice Cream on Thursdays” in our local library. The book earned huge acclaim, followed up with a review. This resulted in lots of questions and general comments on my book. My book sales during the launch and afterwards have proven extremely good. The opinion in most cases is that it is well written and an extremely interesting read.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Xlibris for the professional help and guidance during the writing and publishing process and I would also like to say a huge thank you to Matthew Shaver for his positive four-star review on the Xlibris website. If you read this Matthew.

I am so pleased I eventually achieved my lifetime ambition to put my early life in to print and I continue to strive to expand my readership in as many ways as possible."

Sylvia Harvie

imageI originally contacted Xlibris to receive a quote as I am on a tight budget. I was able to scrape together the deposit to begin my journey into self-publishing. I was amazed at how quickly they had put it all together. Xlibris used my little watercolour for the book cover, which I had painted to describe the main scene in the book to the publicist. My daughter paid the balance and we were off and running. Thanks to Xlibris, my book Move Forward is now listed with booksellers all over the world. "

William A. Gonzales

imageI am so glad for the day that I decided to publish my book through Xlibris. Their amazing staff, at every level, was truly helpful in “every single step’” of the process. Turning my written work into a published product was such a smooth ride — what an efficient, professional, and hard working team. Donna Green, I am extremely grateful to you for being so patient, kind, and supportive. You helped me jump-start my book writing career."

Richard E. Todd

imageXlibris offered a wealth of information on their website in the Authors Lounge and I listened to and read nearly every one of the hundreds of posts they had. And in the middle of all this learning, I wrote.

After three years of work and education I submitted my manuscript and enjoyed the professional work of Xlibris as they polished my words, created an energetic cover, and guided me through the publishing maze.

After only a few weeks I have national press in multiple areas, I’m enjoying international sales, have autographed many books, and am thrilled at the enjoyment my work is bringing others."

S’kay Magagane

imageXlibris went all out for this book, with much patience from the consultants themselves. Through them I got a chance to speak with the legendary Stu Taylor. I had fun having him interview me! This surpassed my expectation. "

VJ Parker

imageXlibris has been a very good supporter, encouraging me to continue writing. Xlibris has an excellent group of illustrators who have been able to do an incredible job on my book covers. Thank you, Xlibris, for all your support in getting my books out there for readers to access and enjoy."

Arleen Alleman

imageI would have to say that getting my copyedited and formatted manuscript back from Xlibris is always a thrill. Seeing the book as it will be published makes it real. I have also been very impressed with the graphic art work done for my covers and the ability of the designer to interpret my description and turn it into a beautiful cover."

Cheryl Scheffer

imageI had a lot of support from my publishing team at Xlibris, and found that publishing a book is a very pleasant and rewarding experience that took me to dizzying heights."

Jodie Zammit

imageI have only the best things to say about Xlibris Publishing. They have been by my side through the entire publication and marketing of my book, People of the Shadows - The Key. They have been forthcoming with advice and opinion when asked, guiding me every step of the way. Every representative, whom I've had the good fortune to work with, has been so helpful, and made this completely daunting experience for a newbie, so much easier. Thank you guys, it's been a pleasure."

Corliss Johnson

imageI published my book "Poetic Praise" with Xlibris. Those assigned to me were very friendly and helpful throughout the process."

Kim Troike?

imageThank you Xlibris for making my dream to publish a novel come true. Your company is par excellence, the best!"

Pete Liebengood

imageXlibris handle servicing in a timely, professional fashion. My books get out there now—not two years from now. It’s a joy to share my work with my readers, family and friends. This wouldn’t have happened had I gone the conventional route of finding an agent who then seeks out a publisher. In my experience, trying to find an agent was the most degrading process imaginable. You send a query letter to an agent and wait two months to get a response that they’re not interested in or have a full complement of authors already under contract. Hopefully, the middleman agent gets replaced permanently in the future."

David Taylor

imageXlibris is foremost self-publishing Co. in the entire world, bar none! I have 7 books published with them with no regrets! Visit my Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/TheLatestTestament/"

Robert Spina

Start your collection and get them all right from the start. You can always see me or contact me on my Face book page thank you all, best wishes and continued success to all."

Katie Santee

imageThank you so much for making my first book a success. I did my first book signing Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014 at the Book Rack in Palm Coast, Fl. We set a store record in sales, making the owner extremely happy.

This could have never been possible without the assistance of your diligent staff who walked me through every step in the process of publishing my book. I am looking forward to working with you in the publication of my upcoming book for release in the summer of 2015."

Allan Gaekwad

imageI congratulate Xlibris who has published my book An Appreciation of Dorrit Black Paintings. The people at all time were very helpful and understanding needs of the writer in a particular situation. I congratulate your company and I have many more books to publish. Right now I am working on a novel and completing nine short biographies. these book will be ready in 2/3 months. There are many publishing companies out of US emailing me with there products and wide distribution and other discounts etc. I have to be very selective and economical. "

Sejla Grahovic

imageMy experience with Xlibris taught me a great lesson: I learned how to make good books. Once again, special thanks to the consultant I worked with. I have been more than patient over the last few months, but with Xlibris’ great team players, my dream came to reality."

M. R. LeClere

imageXlibris helped me find out exactly what I wanted and how I would like to see my work revealed to the world. During the weeks of the editing and publishing stages, the team assigned to the project were very attentive to what I had to say. "

Jennifer L. Martin

imageAs an author, I had a certain format I wanted for my book, and a lot of other publishers couldn’t accommodate me. Xlibris can do any type of formatting I wanted. Their customer service, marketing team, and my personal representative helped me every step of the way. They made this whole process simple and I’m truly grateful to have found Xlibris. Not only did they do a soft cover version of my book they also did it in eBook format. I remember the day I received a copy of my book, it was the most magical moment and I was in awe of the whole experience. I’m in the process of writing my second book and Xlibris will be my publisher of choice. It truly is great working with them! Thank you Xlibris!!!"

Dicy McCullough

imageNot having any knowledge about publishing, I felt fortunate to have found Xlibris. They have always been patient and kind and available to answer any questions. As a result, slowly, but surely, in 2010 my first children’s book began to take shape and now three years later, I have four books in what I call my Tired Book Series."

David Pendery

imageWorking with Xlibris was on the whole quite good, and they were helpful. I was very happy with their service. They delivered the product mostly on time, did a good job of editing the book (I paid for this service), and provided other services that were useful (I like the way they give you a one-year subscription to the Author Learning Center website). "

Roger Williams

imageI am grateful to Xlibris who offered upcoming authors like me an opportunity to have my book published so that the world can read my work, and help spread the message about animal cruelty.
