The Legal Aspect of Xlibris
Xlibris gives you the tools you need to become your own publisher. You give us your manuscript, we work with you to format it and design the cover, and then the completed file is stored digitally. Your book is added to our online bookstore as well as other popular booksellers like Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. When someone places an order for a copy, we have one printed up and ship it out, and you receive a percentage of the retail price. We offer services for black & white books and full-colour books in hardback, paperback and custom leather bound formats.
You retain all rights to your work and are free to take it elsewhere at any time. Read more about our non-exclusive, open-ended Author Agreement and find out why Xlibris is right for you.
Whether you're ready to publish or are just getting started with writing, our Author's Lounge area can help. The Xlibris Author's Lounge is full of in-depth articles about all aspects of the writing life, as well as a comprehensive collection of markets, contests, useful websites, and tips. You can post information about upcoming events, read the latest publishing news, and gain access to an extensive list of freelance service providers, ghost writers, research experts and translators.
Xlibris continuously strives to offer new publishing services that open the marketplace of published books to everyone, and will strengthen and enrich the landscape of books and writing as a whole. So have a look around, see all that we have to offer, and get published.
