I have not cancelled my service with them and asked for a refun of them money I have sent for the last service and am waiting for th eir response. they are taking people with their scams and it isn't fair. they should be held accountable and shut down. 

I wanted to publish my book so I decided to self publish and I picked Xlibris. At first I was excited that they chose to publish it. I was taken in by their services and was willing to pay for them. But after a while of editing and editing I was handed to a number of people to do different services. In the meantime them came up with more programs to add to marketing my book which I paid for. This all sounded good because it was my first book and I was really excited to get it published. Once I saw the book completed I paid for advertising, book catalogs, shows but had only written articles that they said went to the media. Still no proof of shows. My book is on Amazon and Barnes as Noble and I have a Website. I was told I would get a ReadAloud program wh ich I already paid for and it was edited. Now I receive an email telling me it was discontinued and they would give me a 60-90 sec ad on you  tube free. I also made four payments for a distribution of my book to retailers. These cost me a total of $4965.00. I wanted all my money back and I canceled anymore affiliation with them. I have not heard from them and fear I have lost all that money as well my sense of worth. They have taken away much more that money from me and many others and they should be held responsible for what they do. I have received a totall of $35.00 in royalties and lost so much more. I will do anything to close them down and any like them. Please help me and others who fall victim to businesses like this.
