"After traditionally publishing a dozen or so books between 1967 and 2005, there was a lull in my output…. the arrival of Paul Cohen and his Epigraph Publishing helped me through the maze of digital book publication and rebooting my writing career. Epigraph is great!"
"Working with Epigraph is like working with a trusted friend. You know they've got your back."
"I want to thank you for the great job you've done publishing and promoting my book
'Joy's Recipes For Living Younger Longer'. Your staff is excellent. All of you are to be commended.
I receive constant positive comments and rave reviews on the book and highly recommend you to anyone seeking a super publisher."
"It's been a pleasure working with Paul, Colin, and Epigraph Publishing. I feel fortunate to have been referred to Epigraph right from the start. They assisted me in proof-reading, formatting, designing, and promotion of my first book, all in a very timely, responsive, professional manner, understanding the nuances of the look and feel of the book cover and interior design with regard to the subject matter of the book. Both Paul and Colin are great communicators. Had I lived in the same town, I would be happy to meet either of them for a cup of coffee or tea. "
"Working with Paul Cohen and Colin Rolfe is a pleasure. They are very easy to work with. Their responses to my multitude of questions are always answered in a thoughtful and timely manner. They do what is asked without question. Their contract is simple and easy to understand. Their help with promoting my memoir has definitely helped with sales. Importantly, they have a seamless entry into the book distribution system. Following through on their suggestions has been very rewarding. I am very glad I chose Epigraph to work with over the myriad of others on the internet."
"Having used one of the largest self-publishing services for my first book, I can attest to the remarkable difference that the Epigraph experience provides.
First and most important, Epigraph is true to its word of having an author-centric orientation. I always felt that Epigraph was there to help guide the process of publishing my novel to highest editorial and content standards. They also provided excellent sounding board advice. I found them to be patient, detail oriented and available as trustworthy advisors in those instances where I was undecided or uncertain. This is in contrast to the hyperventilated, dollar driven, multiple personnel changeover experience I had with my first book with the larger self-publishing service. Also, when we decided my idea for a front cover was beyond their standard capability, they were able to recommend an excellent affiliate company to help design my novel's front cover, which has received many accolades from readers.
Second, perhaps as important, once my second novel was published, they provided me with productive, detailed guidance on how to proceed to market it and have been happy to hear from me and provide further perspective as I work my way from local to regional and national marketing efforts. This is in contrast to the larger company who published my first novel. Once it was published they began an email and telephone assault selling expensive ancillary services for book signings, advertising etc. etc. etc.
In short, Epigraph is remarkable for their personalized, professional and engaged approach."
"My experience with Epigraph was 100% positive. The multitude of questions and anxious emails were never too dumb or too many, and were always answered in a very timely manner. The folks at Epigraph were invested in my project and guided me in publishing a book I am proud of. "
"In my experience working with Epigraph, I have found them to be true to their word. This is perhaps the highest compliment I can pay as without this trust a positive, solid business relationship cannot develop. They offer professional competence, depth of experience, and, well, they are 'good people.' I truly do not know where I'd be without them."
"I enjoyed publishing with Epigraph very much, and I think you are doing a tremendous job of providing quality service by enabling new authors to navigate easily the publishing landscape. From the beginning, I felt very much that Epigraph was sincerely dedicated to creating the best book possible for me. From our initial communication by email, to the first phone call, to seeing it through the final product, you made it all very seamless for my first book to make it out into the world, and for that I am quite grateful."
"Epigraph was able to turn my hand-pasted manuscript into an attractive book. I appreciate their guidance and support as I venture into the world of self-published authors."
"The very fact that this is my fourth publication with Epigraph/Monkfish speaks for itself. To me every new publication means I'm embarking on a new adventure. And each time Paul Cohen and his team manages to bring this adventure to a high-standard result thanks to their open and direct way of communication, efficiency, flexibility, and professional advice. Above all, with each publication I felt that the publisher was as deeply involved in the project as the author!"
"In today’s fast paced printing environment, finding a suitable publisher with the desired qualities is not an easy task. I am happy to say that publishing my books with Epigraph has been a wonderful learning experience. My publishing needs and concerns were addressed by Epigraph’s team with dedication and personal care. I found the staff to be friendly, flexible, expedient, and helpful in providing service throughout. In sum, Paul Cohen and Colin Rolfe made the publishing event a simple and easy process."
"Paul Cohen and his team at Epigraph Publishing exemplifies for me what publishing is all about; big heart, personal care, attention to details, immense integrity, professionalism and most importantly encouragement and support you do not find in today's fast paced digital environment. If you are considering giving birth to your vision this is the company you want to have right next to you guiding your every step. I had published three books with this wonderful publishing company and highly recommend them to anyone considering publishing or self-publishing."
"The guidance, flexibility, and support from Epigraph was critical to the success of my book. I came into the process of publishing with zero publishing wisdom or experience, and left with a solid understanding of the process. The end product looked sharp and was marketed properly on amazon.com which resulted in a quick rise to the amazon.com top 100 sellers. Epigraph made me an active part of the publishing process and included my input and opinion at all steps of book development."
"I was delighted with the whole experience of self publishing with Epigraph. The 73 page illustrated book my mother and I produced for my daughter's 7th birthday was beautifully produced in a timely manner with care, attention to detail, and great patience by publisher Paul Cohen and designer Georgia Dent. Thank you!"
"After publication of Sherman's Chaplain at Epigraph, I wanted to employ their press release service. Paul Cohen, Epigraph president, turned the business away, telling me it wasn't the most effective tool for my book. Then he asked his staff to brainstorm marketing ideas specific to my needs and send them to me, which they did, and they were solid ideas. Charge? Nothing. Nada. And keep in mind, Epigraph's basic fees are way under the industry average. If you treasure that sort of integrity (and if you deal with publishing service companies, you will, believe me) Paul and his people are the gold standard. And, a vital question, are you going to get totally professional design and production? Simple answer: just take a look at some Epigraph books. Also, wonder of wonders, I never had to sit around and stew because nobody was answering my email or phone call. Epigraph responds, so quickly and intelligently, it made me feel at times as if I were their only author. "
