I signed up with xlibris about six years ago, out of the expectation that they were going to have the best publishing package, the best editing crew, they sold me with the idea of worldwide profit. and when they send me the last draft of my book after editing I was stunned because yes am not so great with grammar, English is not my first language, anyways I spent a little over 600 for the whole process and they did not even care enough to edit my work explaining to me of if they do its 3 dollars extra per word and there is no refund no one explain this too me they had me signed a contract that I have no access to, plus now they are explaining to me that the past 6 years I've sold only 2 book. if they were only local then i'd believe it but they are worldwide.but in my account I had 10 purchased the lady(representative) is saying oh she sees two she can't see that in her end. like what? I just need to know if I have a case. am briefing it for you, so it don't be too long
Agreed. Reviewing the contract is step number one. Everything hinges on the contract.
First step would be for a lawyer, from your area to review your contract. From you post you state you spent $600.00 on the whole process. Honestly most attorneys in Florida will have an hourly rete of between $250.00 to $500.00 per hour. To me it sounds like the cost to bring an action may exceedingly outweigh what you spent with the company.
