Complaint Review: Xlibris Publishing - Bloomington Indiana
Xlibris Publishing Dog Ear Publishing $1,939.54 down the drain Bloomington Indiana
Xlibris markets their own services well, offering good value for their publishing packages. Once they collected the money, in my own case, they placed me in what I'll call "content evaluation jail" until I would resubmit my memoir manuscript first with a requirement that I seek written permission to even cite any other works in my bibliography.
Then, after dropping that one, they required name changes on all of my real life stories of consequence. Then, after I complied with that, they required me to change my own name so no one in any of my many stories could possibly claim defamation by some indirect association.
As an ordained clergyman with no incriminating or even critical mention of anyone else's direct or indirect involvement in my stories, I refused to lie about my own identity. My own private reader group expressed a consensus that the Xlibris content evaluator(s) were offering no credible rationale based upon any actual libel laws, etc.
