Since I didn’t know a thing about publishing and didn’t know of a good publisher, I was referred to Braughler Books. After I emailed David Braughler, he replied quickly, set up a meeting and gave me some homework of gathering a few children’s books. David needed to see what I envisioned for my printed book.
David made me feel comfortable at our first meeting as he presented copies of his company’s published, children’s books as samples. My questions and concerns were answered in a professional manner which really put me at ease.
After I signed a contract to go to print, the design of my digital images and text began. When I looked at the initial layout concepts for the pages, I experienced a struggle to reconcile larger proportions of my book with good design. David responded to a weekend call to calmly listen to my artistic crisis, plea and correction. Yes, David does work on the weekends! His responsiveness and solution to my request was to find another printing company that could print in a slightly larger format.
I enjoyed working with David because of his responsiveness and professionalism. He knows the publishing business well. My first published book is of fine quality. David is detail oriented too. His company inspected hundreds of my books, straight from the printer for quality control, before he delivered the copies to me. I look forward to having Braughler Books publish my second children’s book in the near future.
