Testimonials

Using Rowanvale Books has been essential to creating a polished, marketable product, fit for publication. Tessa and Bethan have been brilliant. If I'm looking to self publish my next novel I'll be in touch.

I was very impressed with the editing service that I received from Sarah and others at Rowanvale Books. Having worked on my novel for a number of years, I needed an objective and critical response to enable me to prepare the book for publication. I am wholly satisfied with the prompt and professional feedback I have received and would recommend these services to other writers.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the Rowanvale team and can’t wait to work with them again! As a new writer this was my first experience dealing with a third party on what has, until this point, been merely a hobby. I’m happy to say that experience has been overwhelmingly positive and I can’t recommend Rowanvale enough. Cat got the ball rolling and helped me navigate the world of publishing in a way that was easy to understand, staying in touch to ensure I was happy with everything. Sarah and her team did a fantastic job of turning my efforts into a work of a much higher standard than I could have achieved on my own, with comments and suggestions flowing back and forth throughout.
Finally, the econversion service was easy and quick – Sarah again remaining an easy point of contact with all the answers in what was, to a first-timer, an extremely daunting process. Everyone was always very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. No hidden costs or additional fees, everything easy and dealt with quickly. I highly recommend Rowanvale and will certainly be coming back in future!

I have dealt with another company but I have to say working with Rowanvale Books has been a real pleasure and look forward to working with them again… Great communicators and extremely helpful. I have published two books so far with them and recommend them. No problems and all deadlines met. Hope to use them again… I have had a book published by Rowanvale Books and have been very happy with the service they have provided so far. What has impressed me is their communication, unlike so many companies - if I send an email, it is replied to almost immediately, and they are always helpful and supportive. I feel I can contact them at any time, and I have never been made to feel a nuisance. The finished product lived up to all my expectations, and the editing and cover design were very professional. I intend to keep dealing with this company and hope for a long association with them.

I would like to thank everyone at Rowanvale Books for all their help in getting my first book published. In particular I would like to thank Tessa for taking me through the whole process up to publishing and then Bethan for all her hard work with the marketing etc. I would also like to thank Max for his excellent illustrations which have really enhanced the presentation of the book. I am looking forward to working with Rowanvale Books again with my next writing project. I would certainly recommend Rowanvale Books to other independent authors.

Darren and Derwyn was my fifth book published by Rowanvale and once again the quality and attention to detail was brilliant. I have already submitted my sixth book to the excellent team at Rowanvale… I'm very pleased with the whole publishing process. Rowanvale has provided me with an excellent finished product. Your honesty, integrity and attention to detail have been second to none. I would certainly recommend Rowanvale to all fellow authors…

Easy, helpful, and quality are the three words I'd use to describe the publication process. I never thought I would have a book published, but with the help of Cat, Tessa, Bethan, and the team, I have! Thank you so much!...

As a new author I have been really pleased with the help and support received from Rowanvale. I would like to thank Rowanvale for their help and support throughout the publishing process. The initial help and information from Cat was invaluable and Tessa's support throughout as account manager has been exemplary - her friendliness and prompt responses to our many enquiries have made the process easy and enjoyable. Both Nia and Sapphira took painstaking care with the editing and were both very supportive - and patient! Bethan has provided us with some helpful ideas about marketing. All in all I have been very pleased by the excellent service provided by Rowanvale.

I have really enjoyed working with the staff at Rowanvale Books, and I will continue with my planned books in future as a result of this experience! From my first contact with Cat Charlton at Rowanvale Books, then working with Sarah and her team right through to receiving finished copies of my books, I have enjoyed every step of the process. Communication with everyone involved has been professional, informative, supportive and fun throughout. The enthusiastic approach from Sarah helped me remain motivated and is representative of the way everyone there encourages you as an author. I felt at all times that whilst I was in control of the process, if I wanted help or advice it would be given in a clear and supportive manner. I can highly recommend working with Rowanvale whether you're an accomplished author or first timer, and I can't wait to get the process started with my next book!
