Got the answer to my question...

we have to use " if we have to print ' in the middle of a string. So my code would be

Code:
OUTREC FIELDS=(15:C'XYZ"sBook',1,10,25X)


Thanks,

Right. Note that's an apostrophe ('), not a quote (") and you need to use two apostrophes within a literal to get one apostrophe.
