I love reading to the kids in the elementary school, which is connected to the middle school where I teach. It’s priceless when they come up to me in the hall to say hello and, “I remember when you read your book to my class!”
The best part of self-publishing is that there’s no deadline. You can write your book, add to it, share it with your friends for encouragement as you go, and when you’re published, people ask, “What happened to the characters AFTER the book ends?” which inspires you to write a sequel.
The greatest thing about being a self published author is it provides hope. Hope that what you tried to convey in your writing is captured by those reading it; hope that you somehow made a difference in someone’s life; and hope to achieve whatever success level you are striving for.
Having the ability to create and have your own book publish is one of my personal life goals. I have always written poems and songs in that childhood rock band, but as a child nutritionist/speaker and demonstrator, self-publishing helps to express the concept which focuses on many families’ nutritional needs.
I have been writing for more than 30 years for the USAF or as a teacher. Until I became a self-published author, I did not realize how fulfilling writing could be. Not only has it been personally rewarding, it has allowed me to share with others my faith, my experiences and my love of life — a life full of “Hard Knocks and Consequences.”
I will never forget the day when my first box of published books arrived. The thrill of seeing a pile of books with my name on them as the author for the first time was fantastic. It will always remain as a special day in my memory and made all the hard work in creating my book worth it.
The greatest thing is freedom, the freedom to feel a sense of achievement on publication, the freedom to feel confident that you can actually write, and above all the freedom within your mind to begin your next book and best-selling sequel. It`s great being a self-published author!
Self-publishing is hassle-free. One has to submit only a camera ready copy of the manuscript
and pay the attractive low printing cost, taking advantage of the special discounts given from time to time. The printed book is ready for the public to buy in a few weeks. It is then up to the quality of the book, the extent of advertising done and the price charged that decides the success or not of the book.
I labored, bringing my books to life. They have become my children, inborn with all the creative genius I could muster! They are mine…and I could not give custody of them to anyone. I would name them, and I would raise them–it was not the job of a publisher to foster them for me!
I think the greatest thing about being a self-published author is that one can tell one’s story, when most publishers will only publish work from an established author. AuthorHouse opened the door for me, and I was able to publish my story quite quickly. Thank you, AuthorHouse.
Author Bonnie Belmudes has found that the joys of self-publishing with AuthorHouse extend beyond herself:
The best thing about self-publishing my children’s book, The Adventures of Gus and Gunther, was making my dream come true. I have always wanted to make kids smile at what I would write about; now, when I read my book to them, their faces light up. I’m planning on writing a second book to follow the first, and I would not go anyplace other than AuthorHouse.
AuthorHouse helped author Kenbra S. Berni make her first self-publishing experience a positive one:
I loved the fact that I had full control of publishing my first book with the full support and guidance of AuthorHouse employees and I get to keep all rights to my published book. My very first publishing experience at becoming a first-time author was an exciting experience.
AuthorHouse published author Joseph Blake, talks about the support he received during the self-publishing process:
One of the best things about self-publishing with AuthorHouse is, if you’re like me you don’t have to know much of anything about publishing. However you have complete control over your manuscript. I was a bit nervous about what I was doing but after getting started having and the professional support from AuthorHouse having a your own team, that you have complete control over, is really what’s so great about the self publishing with AuthorHouse. Just Do It!
AuthorHouse published Author Chris Cataldo’s AuthorHouse review upon the release of his first book:
I just want to say “Thank You” to AuthorHouse for helping me publish my book Computers For Kids. I was AMAZED at how professional and smooth the process went. It has been a wonderful experience and I WILL be writing a second book and going with you guys again.
Thank you Authorhouse!!! My book Yuyi and La Rama….a children’s story book has been published. I am writing my second book.
I’ve been dreaming of writing since the 5th grade, and in 2005 AuthorHouse made that dream come true! Then last fall (2011) I had the prequel to the book printed. I am currently working on the 4th book which starts the series that my fans have asked me for! Thanks, AuthorHouse for making my dream come true!

Paula Murphy is simply overjoyed about her book Louisiana Taboo in her AuthorHouse review.
Thank you!!!! Authorhouse!!!! P
A Rose On Ninth Street was my first fiction novel. It has been made into a movie. The film takes a different direction from the book. It is shot in the present time period while the book is written in the 50`s, and the landscape is somewhat different from the book. However, like the book, the film deals with forgiveness, redemption, and does justice to the book. It was both a challenge, and a positive experience to be one of the producers and to write the screen play. Thank GOD that I listened to my inner self and took up the challenge to write. I feel so fortunate to have worked with AuthorHouse . We had our first test screening on June 13th, in front of 318 people. The responses were very positive. The film is now in LA with a consulting team. They are working with us to complete the final cut of the film. Please check out our trailer. Thank you – remember don`t let anyone rain on your dreams.

AuthorHouse publishing reviewed by AuthorHouse published author Amanda Rose Daul.
I recently received my author copy of my first book from AuthorHouse, and it is absolutely amazing! I had extremely high expectations, and yet you guys managed to far exceed them. I’m so excited that my book is available for purchase now on the AuthorHouse website, Amazon, etc. Right now I’m in the process of deciding how many books to order to sell on my own; I’ve come to think of this as an investment, not just monetary, but in my future in writing as well. Thank you AuthorHouse!

Author Danny Hone talks about his publishing experiences in this AuthorHouse review.
Paid Sept 16th had the book in my hand October 12th! WOW! Only speed bump so far is no one can tell me how much it costs me to buy additional copies of my own book and that information isn’t showing in the book consultants computer, which shows I have to pay full retail price. Got excited when book arrived and looks like I prematurely sent out a press release and internet ad campaign. Not upset since this whole process went super fast. I figured someone got the cart in front of the horse and it will all catch up soon enough. Overall I’m highly impressed and strongly recommend AuthorHouse to everyone!
