More detailed praise from our customers!

From Ms. Janet Collins:

Thank you and Kudos to you!

My book won one of "The Writer's Digest" Annual Self-Published Book Awards. They said some amazing things about the production of my book. I thought you might be interested. Here is an excerpt (I've included the score sheet):

The art works well here with good use of black and white for a children's and young adult book. The overall look makes this a great gift.

For a self-published book, this is an excellent job in the printing and production. It feels like other books out in the market and will be easy to get into bookstores and chains…

What can I say? I was pretty certain that I had the material, but I needed the "packaging." Arbor Books supplied that -- along with a lot more. Arbor Books's presentation of the cover is definitely the eye-catcher. People are so impressed that my photograph is on the back (remember I wasn't sure if I should bother?). The book is so professional that people forget it is self-published, or should I say, independently published.

When I needed reinforcement, encouragement, and advice along the way, you gave me that. Thank you for your patience (you really earned your money on this one). The book looks great!

"Pass Me A Poem" is now in Barnes and Noble, small bookstores, gift stores, and every library seems to be ordering more copies than I ever expected.

Newspapers are writing reviews. The book has been transcribed into braille by the Lighthouse and the Lexington School for the Deaf and the Jewish Guild for the Blind has it.


From
Sigourney Press, Inc.

Dear Arbor Books:

I want to express my sincerest thanks for the great job that you have done with both my books: "Love and Valor" and "Tales of Dunlichity -- The Stories of Willie MacQueen."

The history community and in particular the Civil War market has embraced "Love and Valor." I will be traveling throughout the country, particularly the South, to promote the book. We have sold out of our first print run and will need to reorder another 10,000 copies, as well as 5,000 copies of a special edition hardcover version.

Thanks again for your professionalism and hard work.


From
Dr. L. Trevor Grant:

My third book is now ready and if you can do for me this time what you did for my first two books, "The Politicization of Foster Care in New York City" and "Undocumented, Illegal and Scared" I'm certain that we'll have another best seller on our hands.


From
John M. Pellicano:

What must it feel like to be the guys that makes other people's dreams come true? I have to tell you that when I took the book up to Gettysburg, every bookstore and gift shop grabbed copies. One owner bought twenty copies and stuck the book right into the front window. When I asked him if he didn't want to at least know what the book was about, he looked at me and said, "With a cover like this who cares what the book's about. This book is gonna sell out in a day." Can you believe it?

I was at a book fair and three different publishers came over tome to discuss selling my book and having me write my next book for them.

From
Dr. David Schumacher and Margaret Schumacher:
(Buy and Hold: 7 Steps to A Real Estate Fortune)

We have a best seller on our hands! I can't keep up with the orders. David is forever on the radio, The Los Angeles Times has called it outstanding and named it "the best real estate book of the year" and the nationally syndicated columnist, Robert J. Bruss, keeps mentioning it in all his newspaper and magazine columns!

The orders keep pouring in from Amazon.com and we can't keep the book in stock in the bookstores and the libraries. We need to order another 10,000 copies. How long will that take? Oh, and those audio books you produced? We sold out. We'll need another 1,000 packages ASAP!

You did such a marvelous job.

From
Wilma Askinas:

Throughout life the getting from there to here is sometimes slow and complex, but often quite moving. The same can certainly be said of putting together my memoir, "A Splice of Life."

The book has been written about in "Newsday", "The Daily News", "The New York Post" and "The New York Times".

With your tireless help as book designer and editor, we pored through hundreds of articles, letters, stories, ands poems, as well as a century's worth of photographs to bring about a wonderful book. Your unflagging enthusiasm and remarkable talents helped sustain me during this arduous (but thoroughly joyful!) process. And over the course of those months we came to know each other very well--in fact you've come to know my family and friends. You worked very hard to make this book happen for me, to make this dream of mine come true.

So I just wanted to say thanks, Arbor Books.

From
Reverend Sheehan:

You know already that the Cardinal said that the book cover was gorgeous. I think I sent you a copy of his note. The book is fantastic and I just wanted to say thanks again.

From
Hideshi Kuwada (Japan)

You have been so open and honest with me. The book is a delight and the way that you were able to create the back cover material and words was very astonishing to me. You did a magnificent job with making my text available to the world.

From
Lou LeBlanc:

I know of no particular reference guide for self-publishing companies.

Arbor Books is the only company that I have used. I can tell you that I chose them after looking into several other companies.

My association with them has been successful. They spent a good deal of time listening to what my goals were and explained my options. I eventually chose to have them review, edit and manufacture my book. Each step was done professionally and patiently. The book is stunning and exceeded all of my expectations. These guys can deliver the goods and more.

They also originally agreed to help me market my book to distributors. Fortunately, the 1,000 books that I ordered sold fast through book signings and local private bookstores. After some deliberation, we have decided to switch gears and start marketing my book towards publishers. They did not have to do this. I had signed a contract and they had more than fulfilled their part. It was refreshing to know that they were willing to go beyond what they had promised.

Hope this helps.
