Don't be suckered in by Xlibris...I have heard that a new "self-publishing" company grows on the internet every day and given the depression we are in and the sheer and ungodly horde of people who want to get their writings published, it is a perpetual Roman Holiday for scams and con artistry.

In my case, I had a collection of cartoons, poetry and essays I wanted to get "out there"; tried manually hand publishing the volume (approx 87 pages originally) using a local print store---it took forever and cost too much just to make ten soft bounds, the binding was a joke and it looked more like the flight manual for a DC-3 than an anthology of poetry. So I tried lu-lu and a host of others. They were of less than zero help. Even ended up at Dorrance which firm has been in bizz since the 1920s where greats like T S Elliot and Ezra Pound got their start----their "package" started at $9000....

...Down. And life to pay off the rest.

Long story short, I got conned into buying a grossly misrepresented publishing package from Xlibris and just about everything those people told me they would do turned out to be a bald faced lie. Sure, they produced the damned anthology but they have it hidden under a large boulder on their web site and they won't even show the cover design. They'll never get busted because they are offshore---over in the PIs where they are out of American legal jurisdiction....flatly avoid them.
