Never Parted: A Brother's Loving Teachings from the Afterlife

As a first time publisher who needed a lot of hand holding, I received great attention and care from 1106 Design. They made a sometimes intimidating and confusing process seamless. Thank you all for making my dream come true.

Thank you, Terri. It was wonderful to work with you and to read your book. Anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one will take great comfort from it. Good luck spreading your message far and wide.

Great Experience with 1106 Design

After working with a traditional publisher on two books, I decided to try self-publishing. The team at 1106 Design made it a breeze!  They have the process down to a science. Their consultation was on-point, and their work product excellent. I am so pleased that I'm going to have them start work on a second manuscript shortly! My thanks to Michele and Ronda for their excellent help and clear communication!

Thanks so much, John. We think "8 Seconds to Midnight" is an excellent book. We appreciate your business very much and look forward to working on your next title. Best of luck!

Consistently Excellent

I just completed publishing my third novel with guidance and great design help from 1106 Design, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It is rare for me to think that a company has exceeded my expectations, but once again Michele and Ronda and their team have done so. I’m addicted to their astute professional skills; both Michele and Ronda have the kind of friendly and forthright personalities that make it much easier to navigate the rigors of publishing a book. I would encourage any writer to work with 1106 Design. A+++

Thank you, Stuart! We love working with you as well and wish you every success with your books!

exceeded expectations

Working with Michele and Ronda at 1106 Design was very productive and, at the same time, extremely pleasant. They and their staff were entirely professional and provided helpful and timely assistance at every step in the process. I have written three books before this, but was never involved in setting them up for publication. For a variety of reasons I decided to publish this book on my own and could never have done it without the able assistance of the people at 1106 Design. They explained the intricacies of publishing, setting up ISBN numbers, and myriad things with which I had never before had to contend. They arranged for the cover, layout and interior design as well as the ebook, and produced a truly professional product. This book was a fairly technical social science work and involved many detailed tables, all of which were handled expertly and expeditiously, better in fact than in my previously published books. When I finally received the hard copy of the book, I was immensely pleased; it met or exceeded my expectations in all regards. I can recommend them with complete confidence.

Thank you, Byron. It was a pleasure to work with you as well! We wish you every success with the book!

Held my hand every step of the way!

Michele and Ronda were awesome to work with, especially for this newbie. They promised to hold my hand every step of the way, and they did just that. Obviously, I didn’t know what to expect, but their professionalism, expertise, and patience put me at ease. I am pleased with the final outcome of my children’s book, “Tango Mike Mike: The Story of Master Sergeant Roy P. Benavidez,” and would definitely recommend them to anyone who asks. Again, thanks ladies. You made this whole process an easy one. God bless you, and thanks for making my dream come true!!!

Thanks, Yvette! We enjoyed working with you and reading Roy's inspiring story of military bravery and integrity in all walks of life. Best of luck!

1106 Rocks!

We were thrilled with the creativity, professionalism, and responsiveness of Michele and Ronda from start to finish. Though this is our first self-published book, we've been "around the block" working with and art-directing graphic designers for decades - so we know how challenging we can be. 1106 understood our preferences and perfectionism and delivered results that exceeded our expectations. Will definitely recommend them and work with them again.

Thanks so much Simcha and Frumma. It was a pleasure to work with you! Folks our age (ahem) consider perfectionism a character trait, not a bother. It was refreshing to work with someone who understood the finer points of book cover design. Best of luck with your book!

Second Rodeo with 1106 Design

As a self-published author, this is my second rodeo with 1106 Design. The first time around the block, I was inexperienced to say the least—okay, I knew virtually nothing. Michele and Ronda held my hand throughout as we worked to get my manuscript published. This time, though, they provided me the opportunity to learn much more about the details of the process. Additionally, since we placed my first book on the market, they’ve developed a series of author questionnaires that serve two principal purposes. First, they force the writer to do much up-front critical thinking about which of 1106 Design's a la carte services they truly want and need. Second, the questionnaires nudge the writer into dealing with matters such as the presentation of one’s print and electronic versions as well as pricing and marketing. With my third book now underway, of course I’m thinking ahead to using 1106 yet again.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments, Eric. We wish you every success with this book and look forward to working with you again on the next title.

Quick, professional, outstanding results

I have been working with 1106 Design to publish my books for years, and I frequently recommend Michele and her team. After learning everything you shouldn't do when self-publishing with a previous group, I gratefully found 1106 Design. You won't be disappointed with the process and the final result. I wish you great success!

Thank you, Marcia. It's always a pleasure to work with you and watch you achieve ever greater levels of success!

Personable, responsive and compassionate

As a first-time author, I lacked experience and knowledge. I had lots of courage, though I didn't have any sense of how to go from manuscript to final product. Michele and her team walked me through each step; one baby step at a time. They are incredibly personable, responsive and so compassionate. I would highly recommend 1106 Design to authors along the entire continuum of experience. They are up-to-date with the best way to leverage technology to get your book to market.

Thank you, Sandy. Your story inspired us tremendously as we worked on your book. You ARE the most courageous person we know and we appreciate your business very much!

1106 Design BE'ing GREAT!

As a first time author, it was quite the learning experience. Writing a book is so personal and intimate. Ronda & Michele were so honest, patient, knowledgeable and quick. We met every deadline, even in crunch time. Highly recommend them!

Thank you, Ed. We were honored to help with your book and hope it is a huge success!
