Xlibris Publishers are a SCAM.
This company is below the level of Publish America. There are hundreds of complaints, and legal cases are being formed against them. There contract is the worst in both ebook, and pulp publishing. They do not pay authors for books sold. They also take money from writers bank accounts.
This company has a small shack office with several others like them. Their few phone sales people work from home.
Read the complaints posted about Xlibris on the net.

I've known quite a few people who published with them successfully knowing they were a self-publisher on the order of PA (PA changed their name).  Maybe they went down hill.
