Books Fluent - The ‘Booksmiths’ that independent wordsmiths have been looking for.
ed-davis-theauthor

The good people at Books Fluent have done for my latest novel, A Matter of Time, what I was unable to do for my previous self-published books — make them rise above the crowd. How? By knowing what I didn’t know, and couldn’t know, about the fast-changing world of independent publishing. Quality counts, and they ensured it at every step of the process — copy editing, design, formatting, distribution…It is a long list, and they checked every box for me. I did the wordsmithing. They did the booksmithing!

Wow! I can’t believe this day is finally here. All the months of work have finally led us here, and I couldn’t be happier. Words cannot express my level of appreciation to you and the teams at Books Forward and Books Fluent in all your efforts in editing, designing, and marketing my books. I have zero regrets embarking on this endeavor with all of you as it’s been nothing but fun and a great learning experience. I am happy to see all the positive feedback received so far from reviewers. This is my best birthday day ever!

As a first time author, I found Books Fluent the ideal empowering and educating publishing entity for a talented but tech-challenged novice like me. They eased what might have been a pretty stressful book birth with her acumen and calm. I highly recommend Books Fluent to authors at all levels of experience.

Dwarf Story has been a pleasure to publish ONLY because of the efforts of Books Fluent and their patience with the complexity of bringing forth a lengthy fantasy novel for young adults while dealing with first-time authors. They knew nothing at the start and learned at a snail’s pace. The collaboration, support, encouragement, knowledge, and well-timed nods and winks received from the Books Fluent team—from the conception of the overall publishing and content, through the beautiful cover and production, and into publicity and marketing – was indispensable and even, luckily, also enjoyable.

I’m so deeply involved with my work that it’s always been difficult for me to stand back and look at it objectively. The folks at Books Fluent did that for me. This was my first experience having a staff of knowledgeable people helping me to articulate my message in a commercially viable way. I’m so grateful for the experience.
