A Step Toward a New Direction

As we usher in the year 2009, we at Xlibris proudly announce a change that will usher us - and you, our dear authors - into the next phase of growth in the publishing industry.

Taking a step toward a new direction in the new year, Xlibris has recently joined the Author Solutions LLC family as their latest self-publishing brand. This signifies a consolidation of expertise and resources that will benefit the self-publishing companies as well as our loyal customers.

Author Solutions CEO Kevin Weiss said of the acquisition of Xlibris: "From the outset we believed Author Solutions LLC could help lead the way in transforming the publishing industry. This acquisition gives us an even stronger base from which to help both authors and publishing companies compete successfully today and in the future."

As one of the pioneers in the print-on-demand publishing services industry, Xlibris has been publishing books and helping authors for more than a decade. This is an impressive record of accomplishment as a publishing services provider. Now with our integration into the ASI group of publishing brands, ASI has more than 100,000 book titles in print and more than 70,000 authors in its roster.

As for our loyal Xlibris authors, this consolidation means we continue to provide the quality of service you have come to expect, but also we will offer more services to help you gain additional exposure for your books.

With that said, we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year as we usher you into a new era of book publishing! Here's to a new and exciting direction in the industry!
