I'm talking about Michele and Ronda and the entire team. The most difficult part of writing a book isn't the writing, it's aligning yourself with an editing and publishing team that senses and cares for your baby, your book, your passion, and has the patience to hand-hold and actually respond to your questions. The Surfer's Journey was my five year effort through a PhD program and a new career. They were professional, did what they said they would do in the time set, and taught along the way. Thank you!!
Thank you for the great review, Don. We enjoyed working on your book and with you. Best of luck in your new career!
Michele and her team at 1106 Design never cease to amaze us. Our website is exactly what we wanted! We wanted a clean, easy to navigate website that captures the essence our our book, River Guide. Once it launched, the compliments started to rush in immediately. People couldn't stop commenting on it's professional design and captivating appearance. And the technical support, for someone who very much needs it, was much appreciated and still allowed us to make major decisions. Once again, we couldn't be happier with the results from 1106 Design! Thank you, Scott and Michelle Weibling
Thank you, Scott. It was a pleasure to help with your website and your book. Best of luck!
Thanks to the 1106 Design team for a fantastic job on my second book. Since we already had a template in place from the first book, the process was even more seamless and stress-free. My thanks to Ronda Rawlins for being prompt and willing to talk things out by phone so we got the interior layout 100% right. Again, my sincere appreciation on a job well done!
Thank you, Danny! It's always a pleasure to work with you. You have much to teach others about indie-publishing success.
When I came to 1106 Design about his time last year for a cover design, a painful period followed. Michele was adamant that the interior design I brought with me was poorly done and should be replaced by a new one at 1106 Design. It was hard for one to swallow because it meant I was, in effect, starting over. She did prevail. The 1106 Design team redid the interior and added the cover design as well. Often, I wondered if I had made the right choice, given the extra time and cost. Now I'm at the point of seeking third-party support from reviewers, distributors, and celebrities, and I finally know we made the right choice. I can't predict what others will think of my writing ability, but I do know the book looks like a contender. That's crucial in a totally saturated market.
Thanks for your candid remarks, Forrest. We knew it would be a tough decision for you to start over but we were thrilled when you accepted our advice. Now your book's "package" (inside and out) accurately reflects the solid advice within and you have the best possible chance to stand out in a saturated market. Thank you for working with us! We really appreciate it!
Almost two years ago we were approached by a traditional book publisher to submit a book proposal. They ultimately decided that the book had too much of an international focus for their audience so we decided to complete and publish it ourselves. We were new to writing and publishing a book, so we spent a great deal of time researching independent publishing companies. After reviewing the services, costs, royalties conditions and design samples for numerous companies we felt that 1106 Design offered the best deal. Our experience working with Michele and Ronda over the last two months has been amazing. Writing the book is only half the work; the editing, interior design and proofreading to provide a professionally published book is the other half. 1106 Design not only provided us a professional publishing service, but also made it fun. Their project management tools, procedure and communication helped to streamline the process. We learned a great deal about self publishing through this process and felt like they are not only experts in the industry, but care deeply about the perfection of each project. I would highly recommend 1106 Design for any self-publishing project and will use their service again in the future.Once the publishing process is complete, we received all files and the book was uploaded to Create Space and IngramSpark making it easy for us to access distribution channels through Amazon and other online and retail book sellers. 1106 Design does not take royalties from the sales. They have a one-time fee for their work and then the author receives all profits above printing costs and retailer discounts.1106 Design is transforming how authors and business professionals can distribute their work is a timely and profitable manner. Thank you for working with us to make this book available to our supporters.
Thank you for the detailed review, John. As you know, the deadline to complete production for Earth Day 2017 was a tight one. You and your team were outstanding partners and we couldn't have done it without your timely responses and willingness to work as hard as we did at every stage. Thank you for trusting us with your book. We wish you great success with this highly informative and important work.
If you're wondering whether or not to create a trailer to supplement your book, consider this, what made you spend money on the last movie you watched? Most likely it was the trailer. We too questioned the relevance of a trailer for a piece of literature. But after seeing the trailer produced by the team at 1006, we are so grateful we decided to make one. The team at 1106 captured the essence of our book using our words, but brought so much more to the table with music, imagery, and a professional voice over. We plan to use the trailer at our launch and all of our speaking engagements, in addition to posting it on YouTube and social media networks. Again, we couldn't be happier with the end result!
We're so glad you're pleased, Scott. Best of luck with "River Guide"!
Michele, Ronda and the team at 1106 Design have designed the interior of my three children’s fantasy books. Their work is very professional, communication is exceptional and turnaround excellent. I’m delighted with the result and look forward to working with them on my next book.
Thank you, Robin. You're so easy to work with. We look forward to the next title as well! Good luck!
After working with Michele and Ronda at 1106 Design on my first book, I am very happy to say that I will undoubtedly request their services when the time comes to publish my next piece. As first-time publishers, my wife and I learned so much during the past few months and Michele and Ronda at 1106 Design supported us every step of the way. They gave their honest and professional opinions and advice, while still giving us the opportunity to make final decisions along the way. Saying that we recommend 1106 Design is an understatement. Thank you so much to Michele, Ronda, and their design team!
Thank you so much, Scott! "River Guide" is an awesome book and it was our honor and pleasure to help you bring it to life. Good luck!
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Ronda and Michele on six novels, and they’re terrific! The design and layout of the books has been excellent, and the creativity they’ve brought to the books has made a huge difference in their quality. It’s also incredibly comforting to know that they manage the production process so meticulously. Several times when I’ve misplaced a file or used the wrong file, they’ve come to my rescue. They are always super-responsive. I know they’re constantly juggling many book projects, but they’ve always made me feel like mine is a priority.
We can't thank you enough, Dennis; we appreciate your business very much and wish you continued success.
I worked with Ronda mostly, but I've met Michele, and she is wonderful as well! My questions were always answered, even though some of the work fell over the holidays. I never felt frustrated or out of the loop. The cover is amazing, and the formatting for my book is also amazing. Couldn't ask for better! Ronda was happy to connect me with other people when I had questions about marketing, etc. 10/10 will work with them in the future for my next books.
Thanks for the great review, Paige. It's always a pleasure to work with talented, young writers like yourself. We wish you every success with your book!
