"For many years I had various cartoon pictures saved in a folder, done by my son when he was a young teenager, and I thought that they were too good not to see the light of day. With that in mind they inspired me to add to them, and finally build round them a series of fantasy stories starring an animated parsnip, that would appeal to my young grandchildren, roughly in the 5 and upwards age range. As I was totally new to the world of publishing I had to learn as I went along, and in that respect I found that Gwen’s help was invaluable. She was very patient, supportive, and receptive to my various demanding tweeks to the text and the images, and as mentioned by other reviewers, it’s certainly true that the whole process can be very quick. The whole look of the book is very professional, and I was delighted when I received the proof, which was very helpful in enabling me to make one final correction before publication of the finished product. I will certainly use PublishNation for my next book."
Again my thanks to the marvellous team behind PUBLISHNATION, Gwen and David Morrison. This is my third book published by them and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to publish your book.
Gwen has kept me informed in all the stages getting the book into print and she is quick to answer my queries.
The front cover designed by them is excellent and eye catching.
The whole process from my initial contact to the appearance of the book on Amazon took under 6 weeks.
What a team!"
"For what is my first novel, “Tragic Coincidence” (2020), there was never any doubt that I would return to PublishNation to ask for their help in finalising it for publication. Once you have used a service and found it most satisfactory why do otherwise? By chance I had originally found PublicNation whilst looking for a way to publish my first book which was written to provide a snapshot of my early working days as a Probation Officer. “The Heydays for the Independent Probation Officer in England and Wales 1950’s – 1970’s” was only ever going to be of interest to relatively few people who had, perhaps, worked in that field in the past and possibly also to a researcher in years to come. I did not want to spend a lot of money to publish and PublishNation offer a very economical way of getting into print. A badly advised friend had spent a lot of money (thousands) getting his book published whereas for me it was just a few hundred, certainly no more than one would expect to spend on a modest hobby. Having dealt with a fairly factual resume of the conditions and practices of my early working life in my first book it encouraged me to turn to an idea for a novel which had first been sparked by a story heard whilst I was on honeymoon, some fifty years earlier. I had two happy years developing and writing the book and then when I decided it could be published I turned straight to PublishNation again because of several factors. First, the positive experience of working with them first time, second, the fact that I was not willing, at getting on for eighty, to send manuscripts to publishers and await replies, third, initiating and linking the necessary online accounts is done for you and, finally, the whole process was under my own control. Now I have now circulated forty copies to friends and other personal contacts. If the general view is that the book is worthy of a much wider audience then, by just doubling my original modest outlay, Publish Nation can help me publicise it further. For me the whole exercise has been very smooth and I can highly recommend the use of PublishNation as a means of getting into print on Amazon Bookstore whilst, at the same time, retaining total personal responsibility and control over your own work."
"For a long, long, long time I had hoped to release a book, to get my writing out there and to be a storyteller in some way. David Morrison, of PublishNation, was my main point of contact and he was the bridge to getting my voice out there. From initial requests for information through to the proofreading service and then to the publishing of my debut book, a collection of short stories, David was incredible at providing details about each step, executing them and then delivering the final vision. The process was easy, interesting, and collaborative and it was a privilege to communicate with David, who gave me peace of mind during each process. Long may PublishNation continue, and for them to get the voices of new and continuing storytellers out there into the world."
"PublishNation have published three books for me. Initially, I was a complete novice and had little idea of what was involved. I found PublishNation's website very helpful, setting out the procedure and the options very clearly, and Gwen guided me through the process of publishing my first novel from start to finish. She was extremely helpful and even found me a superb alternative cover picture, at no extra charge, when the one I had chosen did not work out as I had expected. Detailed clear instructions were provided at every stage, which was greatly appreciated. When I came to publish my second and third books, I was familiar with the process and less guidance was required. I dealt with David on these two, who was extremely efficient, responding by return to my emails. These two books were both published in just over one month from beginning to end, despite the third one being dealt with over the Christmas/New Year period. With the second book, I had a couple of further queries after publication, which were also answered promptly. I am very happy with the finished products in all three cases and can highly recommend PublishNation's service."
