Our authors have something to say, both in their books and about their experiences working with Elderberry Press.
My sincerest appreciation for all you do for those of us who love to write.
Jerry McGowan, author of The Place
I just googled for publishers and called many, but I have decided to work with you. I needed someone to discuss the project and find solutions. And you took the time personally to discover my needs and answer my questions.
I thank you for creating a publishing company so welcoming to unpublished writers. I had naively thought that once I finished writing my story I could just send it off to publishers. It was quite discouraging to see how many of them do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. It made it an especially joyful discovery to come upon your website with no gatekeepers, not even any gates, just a wide-open welcome that made room for hope and possibilities.
Anne Dente, author of Mrs. Bugabee
You make everything easy and stress free. I'm loving it!
The Elderberry Press personnel are very competent and knowledgeable and helped me publish my book in the least time possible -- they are like family.
Robert E. Gates Sr., author of Paradise Lost
I'm impressed with the way you conduct business and support of your authors. Thanks again.
David Wood, M.D., author of Why Worry?
Frequently, authors justifiably complain about their inability to communicate with their editor. When such lament reaches my ears, my response is as quick as it is reassuring: just try Elderberry Press. You will be able to contact Dave St. John any time, and he will always respond with grace and style.
Roger Fernandez, author of Odyssey To Opportunity
Received the books from UPS today just like you said - thanks and also thanks for helping me get through this process - it has been a real pleasure!
Ramona Swann, author of Confessions Rants and Exploits of a Civil Servant
I feel really lucky to have happened upon your website. Who would have thought that there could be a true connection between two people working towards the a common goal, whom I might add, have never formally met each other? That speaks volumes of the type person you are towards the authors you publish.
You have been terrific in your efforts to get the book to me in time for our national convention. I'm very grateful to you.
E. Gerald Pires, author of Ichi Ban Outfit
Of all the interesting endeavors of my life I thought the long days and nights which became weeks and months spent in the writing of my (first) novel, was absolutely the most satisfying That is, until I discovered (executive) editor of Elderberry Press, David St. John. He has turned this experience into so much more for me...it's put the cherry on the sundae! At a family get-together the other day, I was telling our sons and their wives how much working with David has enhanced the already satisfying experience of writing my (first) novel. After listening for a while, one of them said, "I think I'll try writing a book, just so I can meet this incredible man."
Mary Wadsworth-Cooke, author of Lots & Lots of Sugar:
I can't express my gratitude for your suggestions on my book. They made it a bettter book.
Leo Johnson, author of The Layman's Guide to the Global Warming Hoax, who has been a guest on dozens of talk shows nationwide
For first time authors and old pros alike, Elderberry Press offers the best expertise in the publishing industry, an editor who will promptly and courteously review and critique your work the respect it deserves. The book is wonderful! Thanks for all your hard work.
Rachel Verdon, author of Lyme Disease and the SS Elbrus:
You have made my feelings toward the act of getting published actually enjoyable, and I gotta tell you, it never was a whole lot of fun before. EVERYBODY to whom I have shown LAST DAYS OF A TOYSHOP is enchanted with the look of the book and many have promised to order it. It is a book I can be proud of. Thanks again.
Annabel Johnson, author of dozens of novels published by big NY publishers, of which there are over a million in print in several languages
I live on a planet of sincerity, hard work and truth; you live in hell. All you do is rake in other peoples hard earned money, while you sit back and do little. Nothing to what you do. I suggest you change your title from "Editor" to something like "villain or crook or swindler or con artist or cheat or charlatan." Any one fits you.Editor's note: Hey, you can't make this stuff up. Well, golly, you didn't expect them all to be good, did you? This author subsequently learned the errors he found in his book were not mine, but his own. Oops.
You are without a doubt the most thoughtful, attentive, courteous, easy-to-do-business-with publisher on the face of the planet. Don't go getting a swelled head, but you are the BEST!
Melissa Bowersock, author of Goddess Rising:
"Elderberry Press, because of its cutting edge publishing technology and broad range industry contacts, is able to keep its authors and readers aware of every publishing innovation."
Roy H. Park, Jr., author of Sons In The Shadow
Dave St. John gave me encouragement, practical help and advice, excellent editors and two beautiful books, all in the context of a publisher-writer relationship that is really more like a friendship.
Chris Goble, author of Is the ELCA Lutheran?
My experience with Elderberry Press was so wonderful. Dave led me through he process with excitement and good information. I would never go to anyone else with my books. It is a must for inexperienced Authors as you will feel loved and cared for and made feel your book is wonderful. Which to most of us, it is!!
Gloria Graham, author of Memory Unchained
The way this is working out I don't think I could have found a better publisher, starting with working at the top rather than with someone in a big bureaucracy and all the delay and uncertainty that would entail. I can't believe it's true.
Publishing is evolving. Shouldn't your book evolve with it? It only makes sense.
