Author Testimonials

“Taking the step to write a book was daunting enough, but as a first time author looking for a publisher – it was a bigger task. I spent hours searching the internet, sending emails to Irish based publishers. The majority of replies included questions as to what other books similar to mine were on the market, what was the competition like and what was different about mine. Questions I found difficult to answer because I didn’t realise I needed to have included that in my thinking before or during the writing of my book. To be perfectly honest, I found it off-putting because I genuinely believed publishers would make that decision after reading my manuscript and not before. That was until I received an email from Book Hub Publishing.

They were different.They requested my manuscript first to see if it was worth publishing. I was given a period of time to for it to be read by them and to their credit they replied within the time frame they suggested. A meeting was arranged and the discussion of my book began. For me, what was important was the belief they had in my book and in me as a wannabe author. It required much more work than I anticipated. Book Hub Publishing arranged for me to have regular meetings of support with the Company Director and their Marketing Director.  During these meetings I felt I was being coached about the world of publishing including, social networking, book cover designs and editing to name but a few.

I would definitely recommend Book Hub Publishing to anyone who, like me, is totally naïve about the requirements for publishing a book. As an author I needed to be open to positive criticism, to listen to their professional expertise and direction for my book. As a result, I believe my book has become a greater version of what I originally started out with and I cannot thank them enough”.

I was referred to Book Hub Publishing by a colleague living in Athlone who had already published with them. I wanted to write my autobiography and I wanted a company that might have a feel for the personal and not just treat me as another nameless client. I’m delighted to say I made contact with Book Hub Publishing and now have an established relationship with the staff there over the past few years. They have been more than accommodating in every way possible and saw my project through from start to completion in terms of professional editing and copyrighting but also the design, production, printing, book launch organisation and attendance and distribution. They even converted my trade book to eformat where it is now available for purchase on several platforms. If I only had two words to suggest to potential new clients they would be “choose them!”. – Austin Berry (former Mayor of Athlone).

Working with Book Hub Publishing since 2009 has been a wonderful and interesting experience. I have now published five books with The Book Hub Group and my fifth has just been published. We had a formal launch in Martinsville, Virginia in the United States. What else can I say? I wouldn’t have stayed with the Company for so long if I wasn’t entirely satisfied with them as my Publicists and Social Media Management team. I’d particularly recommend Book Hub Publishing for aspiring authors who would like to be gently ‘walked thru’ the publishing process.

Christine Moran, a psychotherapist based in the midlands in Ireland and Director of the International College for Personal and Professional Development in Athlone, Co. Westmeath, has published a book of spiritual affirmations with us called Dear Precious Being. The book is beautifully presented with bespoke black and white photography.
Dr. Lew Graham, an American shaman based in the beautiful state of Hawaii, has published Gnosis: The Story of How We Begin To Remember with us. Lew Graham was trained first as a scientist and later as a shaman in Huna and Native American magic. His books fuse science and spirituality into a seamless chronological narrative that blends scientific findings with select Gnostic lore—a dispersed body of esoteric knowledge that is mostly unknown to researchers and scholars. The result casts astonishing, new light on the ancient Lost Civilisation. Lew's research process and fusion of findings are both described in his series of books entitled GNOSIS for 2012 Onward (Volumes I-III), now in a newly updated 3rd Edition. They are available in both ebook from Amazon and softcopy formats. Bearnairdin Ni Goibniu, a bio energy healer based in Ballinasloe, County Galway, Ireland has published Love in the Quantum Space of Time: The Legacy of a Soul Mate with us and has now gone on to complete her Doctorate.

Ivan Morris has published several books already on golf themes including Only Golf Spoken Here and The Dooonbeg Ghosts and has recently come to Book Hub Publishing. Awarded the Golf Nut of the Year title by the Golf Nut Society of America in 2002, Limerick man, Ivan Morris, is the quintessential, avid golfer. Morris is a golfer's golfer who knows the game intimately. His latest, and fourth, book Life as a Way of Golf published with Book Hub Publishing is a typically shrewd and witty commentary on not only the current state of the game but how to effectively play it. The author notes, "The older I get the better I used to be. I wanted to write this book for posterity and pass on what it took me 50-years to learn before I forget it all. I am never ashamed of my all-consuming, lifelong search for a revelation that would bring me golfing perfection. Such enthusiasms are the spice of life but they are ill conceived". Pat Ruddy, owner of The European Club in Ireland and a lifetime golf journalist sums up, "Ivan Morris (always) provides great entertainment filled with lovely knowledge filled interludes. Even I, having read something like 3000 golf books, come away with interesting bits that are new to me. Nobody does golf better." Morris has learnt many useful, golfing secrets on the fairways and greens of his golf nuttiness that should be of inestimable value to wannabees. Along the way, he'll also make you laugh! Check out all his starred reviews on Amazon.

His book is available from us in softcopy format and is also now available as an ebook on Amazon.
