This book has been one of the proudest achievements of my career. Eckhartz Press has been fantastic to me since I began working on it. Through every phase of the process, they were there to help. It’s fair to say that “Records Truly Is My Middle Name” would not exist – or would be a pale imitation of what it became, without the talented folks at Eckhartz Press.
I came to Eckhartz Press with some skepticism. In my role as president of the Chicago Writers Association, I have heard more tales of unhappy authors thank I care to share. They tell discouraging and disheartening stories of publishers who have not followed through with their promises. In many cases, these publishers have treated them more as an afterthought and gave them little or no support throughout the publishing process. I felt their pain, having had my own bad publishing experiences in the past.
I’m happy to say that Eckhartz Press has washed away that skepticism. Rather than treating me as an afterthought, Eckhartz has made me feel like an equal partner. At all stages of the publishing process, from reviewing and editing my manuscript to designing and marketing my book, they worked with me hand-in-hand. The result is the book I wanted, one that fully embodies all that went into writing it. The quality of the finished product is first-rate and, unlike many other publishers out there, they don’t stop working for you after they’ve published your book. They aggressively market your title so that it can sell. Their model works because they put the author first, not at the back of the line. A lot of blood, sweat and tears go into writing a book and Eckhartz matches that to give the author a book to be proud of.
I can’t say enough about how valuable Eckhartz Press was to me during my book publishing adventure. Being a novice in the field, it was comforting to know that the details of getting a book published were being attended to by the experts Thanks to the Eckhartz staff, I could focus on writing, knowing that the other necessary tasks of getting the book to print were being handled in a very expeditious and professional manner. I highly recommend Eckhartz!
Eckhartz Press was great to work and helped me make Chug-A-Chug a reality. My son will always remember the book daddy wrote for him.
I can’t thank Eckhartz Press enough. They made my dream a reality. I couldn’t have asked for a better business partner.
Dave and Rick at Eckhartz Press are great humans to work with if you have a book you would like to publish. They are attentive, smart, honest, straightforward and earnest. They have wonderful experience and valuable ideas to share. I wish I had another novel ready to be published just so I could hang out with them more. They are fantastic to work with. And I ended that last sentence with a proposition.
Eckhartz Press published my novel “Truffle Hunt” in March 2015. They guided the manuscript from its first draft to final draft using not only their in-house expertise to offer suggestions to improve the book, but also their wide ranging contacts to bring the novel to market, including proof readers, graphic artists, printers and publicists. Eckhartz Press is hands on and takes care to make sure every detail is covered.
