A selection of recent comments from some of Farthings' authors follows:
(Original copies of all the following are held on file)
"I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Farthings Publishing to any aspiring author, particularly if they are unknown. Having had my book refused by over 20 literary agents, I found Farthings through a friend. Their swift understanding of my requirements, coupled with helpful suggestions on presentation, and the execution at very reasonable cost have been outstanding.
In particular their inexhaustible patience in correcting my errors found at the proof-reading stage have been most helpful.”
“I contacted Farthings as I wanted to publish my childhood recollections for my grandchildren. I only needed a few copies but I was treated professionally and courteously.
The cover was designed to my specifications. Photos and family trees were added, text was added and subtracted and nothing was too much trouble.
I am delighted with the result. Thanks, Farthings.”
“You and Ren at Farthings have done a truly wonderful job, and I am most grateful. I am sure that I had help from the Powers That Be in finding you.....”
“Thanks for the proof copy which looks excellent. I also think you have done really well with the pictures. They are clear and big enough to see.”
“While I was in Switzerland I read carefully the proof copy which you had sent me of [my book]. You have made a wonderful job of it, and I am extremely grateful.”
“The modern technology of publishing is way beyond my understanding at my age, but you have done a wonderful job producing my 2 books of verse and I still cannot undertstand how you could produce the printed copies I needed, so professionally, within a week …”
"Satisfied is really an understatement. From day one you have been so helpful and nothing has been too much trouble and I really struggle to put my thanks into words. I am so pleased that JG pointed me in your direction and I sincerely hope that our good relationship will continue for many years to come."
"I recently read 'Sown With Corn' by Frank Binder, a copy of which my brother Howard bought for me.
An amazing read and a book I feel deserves world wide recognition...thanks for your involvement in that project and as someone born in Scarborough it made me proud that your company provides such a vital service!"
"We are both delighted with the final copy and thank you so much for your help in getting this book published...Once again, many thanks."
"As a new author who has trawled all the on-line publishers, I quickly realised it is a minefield. I was starting to feel quite dispirited until I saw your straight forward and helpful web-site. The rest is history as they say. To say I've been delighted with what you have done would be an understatement. The service you offer is second to none and I feel you have gone more than the extra mile in helping me, for which I'm immensely grateful."
" I received the proof copy thank you. Perfect! I love it! Please order 12 copies."
"Thanks once again for all your help. I am absolutely delighted with the proof and impressed by how painless you have made the whole process."
"I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to make my dream come true. I am overwhelmed at the quality. You have done a fabulous job."
"Through the whole process of editing [and publishing] my book, I found Farthings Publishing highly efficient, patient, courteous and, above all, friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending them unreservedly to anyone who is looking to have a book published."
As always my grateful thanks to my publisher David Fowler who edits, supports, and helps in a way far beyond his remit. His publishing business, Farthings Publishing, is one of the most helpful in the business and without his dedication and guidance none of my 5 novels would have made it into print.
I cannot praise David Fowler and Farthings Publishing too highly!
As a first-time author, I’d trawled the Internet for a publisher who wouldn’t scare me half to death – and then a friend recommended Farthings. What a find! Courtesy and encouragement from start to finish, and the speed and efficiency in turning my book around has been outstanding. The whole process has been a pleasure and I am delighted with the end result – a first-class book. Would I recommend? Without hesitation!
The books have arrived. Many thanks. They are excellent!!
Thank you very much for your expertise and guidance... It's been an adventurous journey but with your guidance we got there. A very warm 'thank-you'
We are delighted with the finished books.
I'm delighted. Once again David thanks for everything.
