Author Experience: Teresa Easley

The bond formed between FriesenPress’ published authors and their production team is a powerful one. Our Author Experience feature gives our authors a platform to tell the story behind the publication of their story, in their own words. 

Teresa Easley first contacted FriesenPress in November 2014:

As a first-time author, I knew I needed professional help to navigate the publishing world in order to realize my dream of creating a first-rate, polished book. The more I dug into researching the process, the more daunting the task seemed. Thankfully, I found FriesenPress. From the very first moment I made contact, I found the staff to be exceedingly professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable.  

The quality of service they provided in order to accomplish my goal surpassed all expectations.  You should see my beautiful book! My Account Manager guided me step-by-step through the process with a level of customer service rarely seen today. The editing services were constructive and insightful, and helped to develop the story in a meaningful way.

And then there are the illustrations and book layout, which I refer to as the icing on the book. The exquisite illustrations brought the story to life and help to create the magical ambience within the book that I was hoping for. The layout and overall design set my book apart from others like it in an extremely competitive market, and gave me the ‘wow factor’ I was looking for in order to bring my book to market.

I could not be more proud of the book that FriesenPress helped me to develop. I highly recommend any author, whether first-time or otherwise, to engage FriesenPress to help them realize their publishing dreams.
