Testimonials

Having had my first book published by a major NYC, I didn’t know what to expect when working with Victoria Twead and Ant Press, her small indie outfit.

What a revelation! She responds quickly, kindly, patiently, and accurately, and she’s a whiz at promotion and marketing. Six beta readers proofed my final manuscript. Within 24 hours of the eBook being available for pre-order, my memoir, Midwife: A Calling, was #1 in two of Amazon’s categories of similar content, and #5 in a third.

Best of all, from my perspective, was Victoria’s ability to calm my meltdown when facing computer and technology issues. She finally said, “I’ll do it for you. Just give me your password.” I did, and she did, and I slept soundly.

I’ll be writing at least two more books, and I’ll definitely use Ant Press again and again.
