I recently published my first novel, Private Cummings. I spent months researching the best way to bring the book to fruition after I completed the manuscript, and I found the process daunting. That is, until I saw a video of Polly talking about My Word Publishing. I wrote to schedule a call, and Polly wrote me right back to schedule. I had a feeling I’d like her from her video, but after spending just ten minutes with her on our initial call, I was hooked. I signed with My Word and never looked back. And I’m so glad I did. Polly and her team made the process easy and fun. She immediately gained my trust and has continued to come through for me. I look forward to many more projects with Polly and her team.

Polly is amazing! She came highly recommended by multiple people when I was at the beginning process of self-publishing. She took the time to explain the details of the process with no pressure to sign anything if I wasn’t happy with what she was presenting. Her network of talented and experienced editors and designers makes My Word Publishing a one-stop-shop for all your publishing needs! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Polly and My Word Publishing!

Bryan Canter was a huge asset in my self-publishing project, the novel “Deception Downeast”. As a first-time novelist, I needed a combination expert guide and mentor. I could not ask for more from Bryan who delivered facts, advice and insights far beyond the “contractual” necessity. If you are self-publishing, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Mr. Canter.

“The entire process of publishing my book was a pleasant and fulfilling experience. Polly and Amanda were incredibly patient and supportive, guiding me through each production, publishing, distribution, and marketing stage. Working with the book designer was also a great experience, as I could participate in the design. Amanda did an excellent job coordinating the work between the editing and design teams, and the process couldn’t have gone any smoother.”

Over the years and with four books behind me, I’ve worked with a number of editors, graphic designers, and publishers. When I began a fifth book, I was thrilled to discover Polly had started My Word Publishing. I didn’t require start-to-finish assistance, so the a la carte choices were perfect for me. After that book came to fruition, I needed to get a previous book back in print. There was no doubt I’d be returning to Polly’s team. Now I’ll be working on another book. All I have to do is the writing. My Word Publishing will do the rest, and do it well. As a repeat client, a significant factor for me is dealing with the technical side of getting it up and running on Amazon. True angst for me! Yet, Polly can do it with a slight yawn. No big deal! Thank you, Polly!

Couldn’t find better encouragers than the folks at My Word Publishing, Amanda Miller, and Shelly Wilhelm walked me through the process of self-publishing children’s books…twice! I’ve been very delighted with their work and also their support towards better marketing. I’m working with them again in 2024 on my third book in the Samara series!

Where to start with all the things that are fabulous about My Word Publishing? Polly is the ultimate cheerleader, but also has a breadth of knowledge about self publishing that made my journey so much easier than if I had tried to tackle it alone. From the intricacies of the various publishing platforms and marketing all the way back to the publishing consultants and network of editors, proofers, and designers Polly and MWP have a resource. You’re in good hands with Polly and her team!

One of my daughters has participated in this program for 3 years now and has grown so much as a writer! It’s been such a gift to watch her learn and grow, and I’m so proud that she’s a published award-winning author as a result of My Word Publishing! The teachers are fabulous.

Finding My Word Publishing was like finding the secret lair of Ms. Wizard. Negotiating book publishing solo is not just daunting but all but impossible. I learned bundles about the process, from how to get my novel into print to how to successfully market it (Imagine: reviews! and good ones! within weeks of publication). MYP recognizes and supports its authors with professional insights, counsel and direction. Anyone wishing to make the leap into print cannot ask for a better Wizard than MYP to wave its magic wand to make it so.

We hate to brag on ourselves, but...

We have a lot of happy authors!
