Xlibris / failure to refund money for services not rendered (Complaint)

David M. Smith Mar 11, 2017

One of the other companies, Outskirts Press, has since published my book without changes and without incident. Xlibris has refunded only $549 of the $949 it charged me. It is retaining $400 as a "manuscript evaluation fee. " Before I signed on with Outskirts, they provided a thoughtful manuscript evaluation for $35 and assured me that the issues flagged by Xlibris were not, in fact, valid issues...

This book was to be a follow-up of my first book in 2007 and was to be of the same format and follow the same guidelines of the first book...

Elise L. Connors Dec 23, 2011

of Author Support at Outskirts Press. We encourage all of our authors to purchase our copy editing services - during that time, a copy editor goes through your work with a fine-toothed comb. Of course, our editors are human so there is still a small margin of error. However, our production team is responsible for taking your manuscript (assuming that it has already been edited if you didn't purchase our services) and formatting it into a book that can be printed...

Outskirts Press Mantua New Jersey / Book Publishing (Complaint)

Its Him Dec 22, 2011

Go to Outskirts Press instead. They actually will sell your book, and also treat you in a professional manner. I hope Createspace gets enough complaints so that they go out of business!...
