 I paid xlibris publishing over $6,000.00 to edit, publish advertise and market my book. The only place it could

 be found was at Amazon, it had shown the cover for six months, then it disappeared, people where asking how could they 

 purchase my book, after reading the book I found that they did not have the stories in order and skipping articles and 

 incidents, I cancelled my contract with xlibris.

 The book was suppose to be in order as to my career as a Military Police in the U.S. Army, first section, second section of 

 reading should be Chicago Transit Authority Police Officer. Then finally should follow with me joining the Chicago Police

 Department and the stories and incidents should have be printed the way I wrote the book, they had duplicate stories

 duplicate incidents and duplicate photo's and not in the order I had sent to them.

Is there a lawyer that would file a law suit against xlibris publishing company. My rotalties totalled just about $400.00

 The title of the book is History of Street Cops. by Greg Zito.

Thank you for your time

Greg Zito

Uh Outskirts Press is another known scam company. Check out Outskirts Press and rip off report. All Author Solutins Companies including Xlibris are scam companies check them out on rip off report or pissed consumer. Dude eitehr try to find a legitimate publisher you do not pay or just use the free service on Smashowrds to publisher your book then you won't be scammed thousands of dollars by fake companies. If your book was good enough to be published you'd fine a legitimate publisher through Writer and Authors Yearbook which you can find at the library or if it's not just put it on Smashwords who don't charge you but you can get paid and you can put anyting up there as it is free self publishing.
