The first time I called Bookpress, I knew they were the right fit for me. Their well-organized process and easy-to-understand business model gave me confidence that my book would get completed, be done well, and stay on-budget. I knew that if I took a year out of my life to write a book with Bookpress, it would be something I could be proud of and that others would benefit from. I knew I couldn’t do that on my own or with a self-publishing option. 

From the start, Bookpress helped me organize the project, then patiently coached me through each step. Without being pushy, they encouraged me to keep a writing pace, helped me find the right voice, gave me some invaluable suggestions, and involved some incredible editors and proofreaders who offered game-changing insights into how my book should be organized and how readers might react to it. In the end, I was extremely happy with the outcome—even the cover! 

When I learned my book won the Axiom Business Book Awards’ 2020 Gold Medal in the marketing category, I was astounded. A year ago, I wondered whether anyone would even read this book. I can say without exaggeration that this never would have happened if it weren’t for Bookpress Publishing, their excellent process, and their outstanding team. I give them my highest recommendation.

I could ask for no better partners for my work as an author than the people at Bookpress Publishing. They have the expertise, as well as the connections in the publishing and distribution worlds, to make a real difference in the success of a writer’s work.  More importantly, they genuinely care about the author’s success. As a company founded by authors, Bookpress is led by people who understand the angst that comes from writing and editing, and they support their authors through every step of the process. No matter what my question or need has been, Bookpress has been there to help. I appreciate everything Bookpress has done for me, and I frequently recommend them to other authors.
