Testimonials

As a first time author who thought a book was done when the last word of the draft was typed, I am very grateful to Ant Press and my editor Jacky Donovan for helping and mentoring me through the daunting challenges of editing, cover design, publishing, and publicity. I felt that my editor cared about me personally, and my book’s message, as she professionally guided me through the journey and mentored me towards becoming a better writer. The biggest compliment I can give is that I trust my family’s story to her and to Ant Press. Thank you for standing in my corner on this publishing journey!
