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.
