Testimonials and feedback

For all your patience and attention to detail with Time and Tide, thank you. I am sure all the Port Stephens FAW members agree you have done us proud.
Christine Gregory, editor of 'Time and Tide, Port Stephens FAW anthology'
I am proudly sitting with my back in the sun reading a book that arrived yesterday in the mail – I am holding MY VERY OWN BOOK. Everything that matters to me has been reflected in it really well and I am so happy with the way it looks, feels and reads. A huge sense of accomplishment and fulfilment … wanting to share with you. Thanks Eric, for everything you have done for me to date.
Christina Guidotti, author of 'How to have it all'
Outstanding work – thank you so much for all your patience. We have the book online on PK’s site.
Jacqui James for PK Menon, author of 'Driven'
Dear Eric, although I haven’t met you, I feel like I know you. Thank you for helping create my Tough Love book which I hope will help many people. Thank you for getting it done on time (and early), so we had less heart palpitations.
Shivani Gupta, author of 'Tough Love'
Eric and his team are masters of their craft. Their attention to detail, combined with their commitment to excellence, is a breath of fresh air time and again.
Robert Redenbach, author of 'What I didn’t learn at Harvard'
Just want to let you know the books arrived today. They look great. Thanks so much for all your help with my project. I don’t plan for it to be the last book I write so leaving you alone may be a temporary thing.
Jo Callaghan, author of 'All the Pieces of Me'
