"I would like to thank David, Gwen and everyone else at PublishNation who was involved in the process of publishing my debut book. From my first email enquiring about information, to my last email submitting the final copy of the book, and, the countless email exchanges in between, I have been fully supported at every stage. I am a first-time writer and when I came across PublishNation I was pleased with how efficient, professional and supportive David and Gwen were. Their passion for what they do is brilliant and they went above and beyond in helping me take my draft ideas to create and execute the final piece of work. I was assured at every step of the journey and I can’t thank PublishNation enough for helping me complete my goal and share my book with others around the world."
"I have now published six books with Gwen and David. I don't think I need to say how efficient, kind, courteous and professional they and their team are. You can read that in countless other author testimonials. What I want to say is simply that they understand and they care. Writing is my hobby, which I enjoy but also take seriously. I want, like every author, my finished book to be as good as it can possibly be, but I'll readily admit that, for me, the time of publication is both exciting and just a bit scary! Exciting because, at last, the result of nearly a year's endeavours, can finally be put 'out there' for others to, hopefully, enjoy and appreciate. But scary? Well yes, again for me, a little, and for the same reason - that your work is now public, with all that that entails. But, if you have any concerns or worries, Gwen and David address any issues with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of patience. When you entrust your cherished work to Gwen and David at Publishnation you not only get a first class publisher, you also have something worth so much more. You receive empathy and understanding, and any author will surely appreciate their value."
"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."
