My journey into the publishing field was to find a publisher and publish my son’s book. I researched several publishing companies, directly interviewed many companies, had multiple Zoom calls, and spoke with friends who had published books. It was through a friend that I found Wheatmark.
I took a deeper dive into Wheatmark and made the decision to select Wheatmark as my publisher of choice. This was based on their professionalism, communication, knowledge, skills, and, most of all, their author’s extra opportunities. These opportunities are valuable and weigh much more on me than book publishing.
This was the only company I found that offered the “Author’s Academy” and the “Friday Office Hours”. Appoints leads as direct communication resources for the authors. Wheatmark’s leaders are amazing individuals.
Sam Henrie, President and Founder, actually communicates with the authors. He attends and interacts directly with authors at the Author Academy and via email.
Mark Dupaul, Publishing Consultant, was my first contact. He has outstanding customer service skills! available on the spot! communicates thoroughly! and not pushy!
Lori Conser, Senior Project Manager, holds an initial meet and greet with you to review the process and offer significant suggestions during the various publishing stages.
Tia Lewis, Publishing Consultant, leads the Author’s Academy and Friday Office Hours. She is a wealth of information, very knowledgeable, and imparts technology and innovative approaches that are advantageous to authors.
If you are a first-time author or looking for the perfect publisher, be mindful of Wheatmark to embark on a successful publishing experience.
