Okay, let me first start out by saying that I am a real life customer of Empire Publishing and I AM BEYOND SATISFIED with EMPIRE PUBLISHING!!! As a first time author, Steven was beyond helpful, dedicated, and ensured I didn’t agree to print anything unless I absolutely LOVED it!!! I must’ve made 17 changes/edits and Steven and His team were so patient and dedicated!!! I definitely recommend Empire Publishing to any and everyone looking to self-publish. They are AWESOME!!!! – Christina Pangelinan
