Granny's Cobbler“Receiving the finished physical copy of Cliffhangers, listening to good reviews, and seeing the satisfied look on the faces of my readers was my favorite part of self-publishing.” – Aliya Blake (Cliffhangers)


“My publishing consultant was able to slowly walk me through each step concerning the packages at AuthorHouse. He knew that this was all new to me, and he made me feel like he really cared about me and my manuscript. Through the entire process, I felt that I could always depend on him for confidence, encouragement, and the direction to continue until I held the first copy of my book in my hands.” –

Rhonda K. Gatlin (Granny’s Cobbler)


Junior and Elena“I’ve self-published 15 books over the past ten years. To me, writing books it is like getting a tattoo—once you get one you want another. Self-publishing has become my career and life, and working with AuthorHouse has been a joy.” – Victoria M. Howard (Kentucky Horse Park: Paradise Found and Junior and Elena: A (Horse) Love Story)
