Testimonials

Rowanvale have been very professional. The editing process has been of high quality, detailed and very thorough. Tessa has kept in contact and been very supportive, responding immediately to any questions or issues. Bethan is now carrying on in the same professional manner, being very helpful. I have also been pleased with Hannah for the artwork, who in my view is very talented. I have had a positive feedback about the cover design. Sarah and the rest of the team have been excellent. From my experience Rowanvale offer something unique to the publishing industry, offering new writers a chance without giving any false hope. All the staff at Rowanvale should be very proud of the service you offer to new writers. Thanks.

I am very pleased with my working relationship with Rowanvale Books. Communication and professional quality definitely come to mind when I think of my experience with Rowanvale Books. The covers of my books A Right to Live and Aurélie: On the Road were done superbly, exactly like I had envisioned it, and I was also very happy with the work of the editors. I especially appreciate the fact that the staff published an article about my campaign to close a terrible, local zoo on their site, giving my campaign more support and exposure. I always had the feeling that the staff at Rowanvale Books had my back.

The Rowanvale team have been excellent throughout. They go the extra mile for their clients, whose satisfaction is their primary aim. From start to finish of a project they are just an e-mail away, ready and waiting with friendly and helpful advice on all aspects of the publishing process. Not only do they answer all your questions, they have answers to questions you haven’t even thought of! Nothing is too much trouble and they tell you in detail what you need to know. They are on your side, they know what it takes to be a writer with all the usual fears and phobias. Reassurance, I’d say, is their key strength, along with others too numerous to mention. I really can’t thank them enough for all their valuable help.

Rowanvale Books goes from strength to strength; emphasis on continuous improvement with the writer's interests at the heart of its business ethos. Great stuff!

Having published two books with Rowanvale I must say that it has been an absolute pleasure to work with them. They are very flexible and understanding about payment options, and work with you to find a mutually beneficial arrangement.

All contact has been very pleasant and kind, but also to the point, and I must say that I am looking forward to publish the next part of my series with them...Just go on the way you are going, that's very fine with me. I enjoy working with Rowanvale....

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…
