I had some difficulties to publish my first book, Crowdbooks’s perspective and insight have been invaluable in helping me to create and publish the book I wanted!
Crowdbooks’ team shared their advices and expertise and helped me come out with a clearer vision on how to publish my book.
I’m not a geek and was a bit skeptical about starting a crowdfunding campaign but thanks to Crowdbooks’ team suggestions coupled with their experience and in-depth understanding of the market i could put together my network and raise the necessary funds to publish the book!
Crowdbooks’ support throughout the crowdfunding, production and distribution has been invaluable. Their knowledge of all aspects of the publish process is truly exceptional.
I simply could not imagine that my crowdfunding could became so popular and my book could gain such a tremendous awareness worldwide through a successful campaign!
