Surviving Singlehood in the Artic: A Story of Resilience and Surviving Singlehood Hopefully Not Forever: A Tale of Heartbreak, Strength, and Fortitude
I have been working with Westwood Books for approximately five months now, and first and foremost, I would like to say that WB has so much respect for the process of writing and the mind of the author; I have been so impressed and very grateful. Having worked with another publishing company before with my previous book, believe me, I know what I’m talking about. Westwood Books bends over backwards to make sure that everything is perfect, and not only that, that the author is completely content. Every step of the way, the different team members have worked diligently with me, and the communication has been swift and thoughtful. They let me know exactly what is going on and prepare me for the next step and keep me abreast of things as I am waiting. The finished product was exactly to my liking, inside and out. I had them redo my previous book’s cover. I only described it for them, and they came up with the cover that matched what was in my mind, so much so that I was startled. The quality of the inside of the text book is also superlative. They swiftly got everything up and running on the various platforms and also gave me ideas for marketing without being too pushy; it was just right. In short, Westwood Books cares, and it shows throughout the entire publication process as well as the final product. I have been extremely pleased with my relationship with the whole team, and I would not hesitate to use them again in my future endeavors.

Living Stones: 52 Love Letters

When Westwood Books contacted me concerning a book that I had previously written, I was very surprised because many years ago, I had the book published by a different company. Needless to say, it did not sell well. However, that company kept offering me different options and each option was expensive. I gave them a great deal of money and also spent money on advertising, including a trip to Las Vegas for a book signing, that they insisted would benefit the sales of the book. This was to no avail. Time passed, the book did not sell and I became discouraged because of all the money I had spent. So I lost faith in the book and only ordered books for special friends and children. So, I was very surprised when, many years later, another company showed interest in the manuscript. After several conversations, Westwood persuaded me to republish the story with their help. I found this company to be very helpful and excited about the book. They were methodical and concerned and compassionate. They were extremely honest and showed a great deal of integrity through the entire process. The new book cover is much better than I expected and the price for myself is very reasonable. All in all, it has been a learning process for me and a reawakening of my creativity. I would recommend Westwood Books to anyone who is interested in telling a story that comes from their heart.
