Following an extended visit to Ireland, my memoir – A Different Shade of Seeing – was published. It’s been a delight to share that journey to explore my Irish roots with readers near and far. Unfortunately, the publisher retired and I was faced with the task of finding a new publisher.
With great fortune, I met Helen Iles from Linellen Press. I gave Helen my book to read. She came back to me with a deep fervour to assist me with a second edition. I have been flummoxed with the assistance Helen has given me. Her enthusiasm, her zest, her support, and her guidance and advice has been incredible. And her patience!
In an early consultation with Helen, I mentioned that I would like more photos. Again, I was amazed by her animated reply: No probs! Show me what you’ve got.
Perhaps the most important emotion I have experienced throughout the whole process and achievement of having a second edition published was the trust Helen bestowed upon me. This has been continuous.
It is with enormous pleasure that I share this journey with new and known writers: that Linellen Press is a publisher whose primary objective is to support the author in achieving his/her dream. I recommend Linellen Press very highly.
Thank you, Helen. Thank you, thank you.
