"I wholeheartedly recommend The Choir Press to anyone considering the first steps towards getting into print. 

I have been working with The Choir Press since 2011 when I was ready to consider publishing my first book. I have always received thoughtful, insightful and honest advice over the past nine years. I have also grown to feel the staff at The Choir Press are my friends. I know that I can discuss any idea openly with them and that the views and information that I get back are going to be valuable.

I have published three books now and am very happy with the excellent service that I have received throughout our relationship."

Paul Robinson, author of Recovering with T3, The CT3M Handbook, The Thyroid Patient's Manual.
