I am forever grateful for you and all your efforts. Thank you my forever friend. In Love, Light and Beauty,
My book, The Day The Colors Became Friends, lived in my computer for 4 years. I had procrastinated and put off pursuing publishing it, far too many times to count. That is, until heard about Annie Elizabeth and River Sanctuary Publishing. The book that I held in my hand and looked at was beautiful, and had been published by RSP. I knew then why I had waited 4 years. Annie was clearly the one with the artistic expertise, mastery of page design and layout that I had been looking for. I contacted her and she sent me information so that I would understand not only their services, but also the process.
Annie Elizabeth is kind, calm and thoughtful. We communicated by email and a few phone calls. She guided me along with no pressure to make quick decisions or pressure to move faster through the process. She is a true professional. When she emailed the very first digital document to me of the book, I was so overwhelmed with joy and emotion that I cried tears of happiness. There it was, the book that I had imagined. Annie had gotten what the book was all about, and the spirit in which it was written. She “magically” turned the vision I had in my mind’s eye into a reality. She nailed it in so many areas and on every page of the book.
River Sanctuary Publishing has so many things to offer authors at no cost. The services that they do charge for are clearly posted on their website. What you see is what you get. No surprises or hidden fees. The Day The Colors Became Friends is so much more than I had ever imagined. I believe that those who read it will feel the spirit in which it was written and produced. So, if you have a book that’s been living in your computer, or on index cards, in a notebook or written on scraps of paper, give yourself the gift of joining with Annie and creating a book that you can share with the world.
I wasn’t looking for a publisher at that moment, yet I’d found one. I could feel a resonance in this article, which focused on consciousness and trust, not greed and profit. The professional elements were there, too, yet equally important were all areas related to ensuring creative expression and author benefit.
The first query I made, via email, to River Sanctuary Publishing related to my quest for a professional editor. Annie Elizabeth responded quickly offering two referrals and the journey toward publication took a giant step forward.
Publishing a book is much different than writing one. When I finally met with Annie Elizabeth, some months later, a kindred spirit escorted me into her home. Here was a woman whose foremost concern was my humanity. It was nice to be in a relaxed environment. We sat down as if two old friends having tea. The book was now our shared adventure.
River Sanctuary handled all technical details with ease, adding expertise in several areas, including a couple that I had not considered. Kindness and openness were the vibration that resonated throughout the publication process.
I highly recommend River Sanctuary Publishing. Every time I contacted Annie Elizabeth whether the item related to large aspects of the publication, like ‘Front Cover design’, to little details, each was handled with equal professionalism and ease. Annie Elizabeth’s feedback in all areas of publication helped to ensure my book reached its potential. If you choose to publish with River Sanctuary, you will get maximum author commissions, professional guidance, creative control and most importantly, a caring, compassionate publisher.
