Complaint Review: XLIBRIS CORPORATION
XLIBRIS CORPORATION I had my novel "White Redling" published with Xlibris Corporation in 2005, but there is no way I can verify the copies of my book that they sell. Bloomington, Indiana
*Author of original report: Mr. Gary Xlibris's Failed $2,000 Marketing
*Consumer Comment: They want you to think your a failing writer so you purchase more of their marketing!
I had my novel, "White Redling" published with Xlibris Corporation in 2005. At first, it looked good when they sent in royalty reports. But soon, I learned that my brother had bought a copy in Las Vegas and I waited for the sale to be reported to me, but it never happened. I wrote the president of Xlibris Corporation but never got any reply. I phoned their staff--based in the Philippines--but got no relief either.
Meanwhile, one Gary from Xlibris offered me an online promotional package worth $2,000 but I got ZERO result from such "promo." Again, I reported this matter to their staff in the Philippines and again, got no relief.
Later, a friend in Los Angeles showed me a copy he had bought through Amazon.com but such sale was never reported to me. Meanwhile, go Google "White Redling" on the net and you'll see a number of sales outlets, even outside the United States.
In short, I spent years and years making the book, and now some people are reaping in the harvest. Xlibris can sell anytime they want and I won't know a thing.
