Rowanvale work really hard at turning an author's vision into a reality. Being a perfectionist, it was nice to work with a team who want nothing but the best for their clients. They are friendly and approachable and have the patience of saints - exactly what is needed when working with an author such as myself!...

From the moment that I first submitted the script to Rowanvale, I knew that I was in safe hands! Cat and Sarah provided a very personal and meticulous service. Sarah’s editorial skills are incredible; she picks up the smallest errors and is always happy to offer advice, satisfy the author’s requests and make changes cheerfully. Rowanvale do exactly as they claim. Whereas other publishers treat authors merely as sources of revenue and do not offer or provide a tailored service, Rowanvale treat every author as an individual. I would recommend Rowanvale to all aspiring authors who feel in need of guidance and a friendly and professional contact and to give Rowanvale a chance to prove their skills and demonstrate their caring attitude.

Where to start? Rowanvale Books made it so easy. They really care about all aspects of production, and kept me informed weekly at every stage. Nothing was rushed, and I never felt pressurised to compromise at any point. 

The cover design incorporated everything that I wanted, superseding my original idea entirely. I was delighted with what the designer did with my (inarticulate) ideas. 

The editing process was thorough (and a little bit intense!) which is exactly what my manuscript required. 

The team have the patience of saints; I still don’t know how they do it? As a result of working with Rowanvale Books I feel so much surer of myself as a writer now. I’m approaching writing in a whole new way, and I’m much more confident in what I’m doing now, which in turn has made the writing easier; I can now begin new projects with less fear than I had before. To any aspiring authors out there reading this, I’d thoroughly recommend Rowanvale Books. The Rowanvale team are just fantastic. They make it so easy for writers, they're just a joy to work with.

Self publishing with Rowanvale Books? They do EXACTLY what they say on the label! This was my first experience with Rowanvale Books and one I feel certain to repeat in the future. From my initial enquiry to the publication of my 'efforts' no query was left unanswered and answered in a manner I could understand. Without exception, every step of the way has been taken at a pace to suit the uneducated in the world of publishing. No smooth talking salesperson; no hidden costs or agendas; no pressure to meet deadlines to suit the publisher and not the author! What you see on the contract is EXACTLY what you get, with the hidden bonus of people who are prepared to go that extra metre and provide an end product of mutual satisfaction that in my case exceeded my expectations of ultimate presentation and quality. And they handle the distribution as well! Job sorted! Rowanvale Books listened and I was educated, what more can you ask!

Being new to this game and a stroke survivor who can be a little anxious from time to time, the entire team at Rowanvale have been saints. I asked a million questions and was given a million answers to help me through this process, plus the after-care, which is continuing to this day, is kind and courteous; as someone who was self-employed prior to my stroke I have been treated the very same way as I would have treated my customers. Sarah and all the staff at Rowanvale Books have made this journey effortless.

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.
