“As an already published author, I was looking to have more control over the publication and marketing process with my second book… I chose [Book Reality] to publish my second novel, frenzship. I have been delighted with the service which can be end-to-end covering the whole publication, registration and marketing process or just assistance with various aspects of the process if you want to do more yourself. I unreservedly commend Ian Andrew and the Book Reality Experience to anyone looking for an independent publishing facilitator.”
