What Clients Say About Our Books
My mom received one of the first copies of my cookbook. Since that day, she seems to be on a quest to buy me cookbooks. Not long ago she told me that no matter where she looks or how much she might spend, she hasn’t been able to find a nicer cookbook than the one Creative Continuum published.
Doing my book with you was one of the best experiences of my life. The time when I published my book was a very difficult time for me personally. I don’t know if I would have survived without your support, creativity, passion for publishing and resulting friendship.
I have mailed out 75 signed copies of Butchers & Merchants this week! 24 were mailed to Ireland. That used 4 complete boxes of books and leaves me 4 boxes for future orders.
So far I have heard from 6 recipients who have sent lavish praise on the beautiful appearance of the book with its pictures and charts. One cousin in Texas called the book a work of art!
I am very pleased with the finished copy of my book, its design, and the placement of so many pictures. It seems that the first thing readers do is look for their ancestor in the pullout charts! I have been reading and enjoying my story without having to proof read it. So far I have found no glaring errors, just two small ones.
Thanks again for the special delivery on Leap Day.
Your work on my family history book was phenomenal. You understood my vision from the start. Without fail, your suggestions and ideas for layout and design were excellent. On page after page, the book pops, without losing a sense of total design and theme. It brings my family’s history alive. Flipping through it, the book unfolds like a movie. People have been floored by the quality of the whole project. The reviews are ecstatic. It brings me tremendous joy to know that I’ve been able to give my family not just a historical resource but a genuine heirloom. It really is much more than a book.
Pulling together the book was a lonely, late-night enterprise for 10 years until I engaged your services—at which point I felt like I had an all-in collaborator, as heavily invested as I was in making this book the best it could be. You made the process downright fun. I can’t wait to work with you again on another book. I recommend you to anyone looking to publish, without reservation. Thank you for everything.
Wow, you do great work! You don’t know how much I appreciate you unselfish attention. This is the first time I ever took on a project like this and you are helping me look good. You are so very good at what you do: your book cover design is very much appreciated. I don’t think I’d get this kind of one-on-one help with any other publisher. I’m very happy with what you came up with.
I received so many calls from family over the holidays (as did my aunt)... all just raving over the book. Also, I have sent copies to Messiah College (where our family has an endowment in honor of my grandparents) and two other family Brethren in Christ churches for their archives and libraries. They have also been thrilled to receive it. It will always be a treasure for our family. Thanks again so much for getting this out prior to the holidays.
Thank you so very much for all the work you did to make my book look so good! Furthermore, you made my deadline, too. You have my gratitude, my prayers and my referrals!
I’ve been receiving calls and e-mails from family and friends about my father’s memoir, and the verdict is unanimous: You and your crew at Creative Continuum did a fabulous job! Just as I had remarked, many commented on the very original, effective placement of photos, especially those that blended beautifully into the text.
My sister Judy and I appreciate greatly your extra touches that made Dad’s story special....We’ll certainly sing your praises to all who are considering publishing a cherished work.
Today, the two of us created a book cover, that I not only love, but is the covering of many family memories that will be passed on for many years after I’m long gone. I’m touched by your creation.
Thank you for taking the time to bring my book to life. With all the care, expertise and attention you spent on my project, I felt like I was your only client.
You created a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. I love the format!
