The word is exemplary because you and your staff provided the following: employees maintained courtesy and respect for the author; they explained each phase before and during the process; enjoyment was expressed and encouragement was provided; maintaining focus on the writing, proofreading, and deadlines was important for you for our benefit; pleasing the client comes first, but there was always the element of a positive explanation of why something could/ would not be the best thing for the book; loyalty to what the author wanted to represent in the book came through in our conversations...above average attention is given to every client; rates were reasonable and explained fully; you and your staff are true professionals-therefore you can lead the unknowing authors/writers out of the darkness into the light.

With her publishing savvy and technical expertise, Dorothy Kavka could be CEO of any major house. What sets her apart. . . is. . .the personal attention she gives her authors. Her constructive criticism, layout scheme, dust jacket design, and selection of a quality printing company transformed my novel's manuscript into a prestigious volume that should satisfy any reader and grace any bookshelf. I recommend her publishing services without reservation.

Just wanted you to know that the cookbooks were a big hit....We had a "grand box opening" ceremony for all of the committee members. Everyone was very excited and pleased with the end results. We begin selling the books this Sunday. I am sure everyone.... I am very sure everyone...love the books.
-Kim Pate committee coordinator, Reflections and Recipes Celebrating 260 Years

Evanston Publishing's services were exceptionally professional, efficient, timely, reliable, and dependable....Dorothy Kavka, the president of the company, is a perfectionist, and she will produce as nearly perfect a book as can be created from the material you send them. Evanston has now done two books for me, and if I ever do another one, it will be with them.

-David Greist author of My Playmates Were Eskimos
Thank you for making my stories sound so good. You really did a great job! I just typed in the corrections. You had to work hard. It's amazing that you can omit some words and add a few more and it sounds so much better. I'm glad you had the knowledge to know how to do it. I am very much an amateur. Thanks again! I'm really proud of the little story.
-Bertha Brooks author of Somewhere on the Rainbow and The Big Fishing Trip
Having become increasingly tired of being ignored, treated rudely, and told by publishers that they wouldn't look at my manuscript because I didn't have an agent, and being told by agents that they wouldn't represent me because I hadn't been published (in the last 5 years), I decided to go the self-publishing route and signed on with Evanston Publishing. This was the best decision I ever made! Besides the fact that my book came out looking as professional as any book you will find in the bookstore, and that the cost was far more reasonable than any price quoted me by other self-publishers, the people who run Evanston Publishing are an absolute joy to work with. You won't find more dedicated, honest and trustworthy people anywhere. And, by the way, my books have sold very, very well and went into multiprintings.
-Arlene Uslander author of That's What Grandmothers Are For and That's What Grandfathers Are For
The books are more beautiful than I ever imagined
-David Mancini author of the uninhibited thoughts and experiences of the life and times of david walker mancini and early snakehood
I have been dealing with Evanston Publishing since 1992. They have been very helpful in helping me to get six books published. I have found this company to do excellent work in editing and cover design. They are honest people and I have found them fair in the prices that they charge for their services. I shall still seek their help in all of the future books that I write.
-Thomas Krupowicz, Terk Books
The staff was knowledgeable and thorough every stage of the process...from the initial contract to the delivery of the books, we were kept well-informed. All the staff is alert to client needs and concerns.
