“My favorite part of self-publishing was how easy AuthorHouse made it for me; they were helpful and patient throughout. In all honesty, without AuthorHouse, I wouldn’t have been able to complete a book of such a high standard.” – Simon Cooper
(The Hairy Lemon Cookbook)
“We felt that we had ultimate control over our work and did not feel that we had to change our message to cater to a large publishing company’s rules.” – Leigh and Renee Macneil (Spaz: The True Story of My Life with ADHD)
“Self-publishing with AuthorHouse was a great experience because we worked together as a team, and I didn’t have to concern myself with the aspects of publishing that are out of my wheelhouse. I was able to focus on writing and providing a good manuscript. They handled the details, and their design team created both a beautiful cover and a very professional interior design. They took care of things that I never would have
considered.” – Alicia Garcia (Overcoming Obstacles)
“Receiving my first copy and showing it to my family, friends and colleagues [was my favorite part of self-publishing. It was a unique experience!” – Stephen James (American Stew)
