“This publishing company is top notch! Empire Publishing has an insane work ethic. And their customer service skills, coupled with their great pricing scales, shows that the company actually cares about the Author and the selling of the Author’s work. I was shocked to see my Microsoft Word doc beautifully transformed into a novel. I was at a loss for words. Steven, my editor, also gives great feedback and he has a lot of experience with graphics and such. After Empire built the website for my novel, I was impressed with the professionalism and high quality of the site. And if that’s not enough, they are actually helping me to market the novel. I honestly wish that I could rate them 10 stars instead of 5. That’s what they deserve.” – Allan Nelson (The Unveiling Saga)
