Julie-Ann it gives me great pleasure to give you a testimonial. I was given two people to contact for help with the new source file for Alec meet Sheikadee. Luckily for me the first person was not answering and did not reply to my message. It was a fortunate day when you came into my life and became ‘my team’. I have been blessed with the most amazing patience and support. I am sure my inexperience would frustrate most people, however you and your team have been there to answer every question with patience and respect. You always give me the knowledge I need to overcome the challenge of the moment, and continue to do so with every ‘learning curve ‘ that comes up.
Your team of yourself; Laila Savolainen who has blessed me immensely by coming on board as my illustrator; Evelyn for all her patience - every time I miss something and have to make her do more work ( for which I have to pay, but that is part of my ‘university course in creative writing’); Eddie Albrech, copy writer extraordinaire who did such an amazing job on the back cover and Nicole who keeps the financial side running smoothly with her attention to detail and the promptness of her paperwork.
I have learned so much under your guidance. I have come from being a very green and novice writer with no knowledge of the publishing process, to one who is now far more knowledgeable. My writing skills have improved and I know how to access the help I need; be that from volunteer beta readers or professional people, when I find I am out of my depth.
Without you and your team, I could not have brought Joshua and Stranger Danger to a publication I am proud to share with the world.
I cannot praise you all highly enough. Your help is invaluable and worth every cent I have paid.

I am grateful to you for your warmth and patience in helping me understand the publishing process, for always making me feel welcomed to ask my questions and for patiently guiding me through a complex string of events that take place in getting a book ready for publication.
I thank the Pick-a-WooWoo team who has travelled with me throughout the creation of this book. I will miss seeing their messages in my inbox! The interior design of my book truly took my breath away when I saw what you and the team came up with - WOW! I still smile each time I look inside my book.
Pick-a-Woowoo you have exceeded my expectations. You and all the team have been both professional and personal towards me. We have laughed together and we have pushed the deadlines hard together. I thank all of you at Pick-a-WooWoo.

Being a first time author I was uncertain as to where to go or what to do next with my completed manuscript. The internet rallied with buckets of information, but too many choices and options confused and intimidated to the extent that I almost shoved my years of work into the too hard basket. But just in the nick of time I learnt about a publishing house recommended as approachable yet professional. I plucked up my courage and my manuscript and took the first big step into the world of books and publishing.

I am happy to report that I have just received my first print of my latest novel "Just a Little". I expected a good result from your team at Pick-a-WooWoo and I was not disappointed. In fact, I am over the moon with firstly the cover, which I think is sensational, particularly as you only had my old photos to worth with. Then as in my previous novel, the layout and formatting was first class. Please pass on my gratitude and praise to your amazing team. I recall how you first encouraged me to be an author and a self-publisher and for this I thank you. I did not dream it could be made so easy. Even more, I did not dare to dream that my books are being read by many hundreds of people. There is not doubt that being a self-publisher is a life changing event and I recommend your company to any budding authors. Thank you again.

As an Australian based company Pickawoowoo offered me a “One stop shop”. They did everything for me and guaranteed all the services listed on their website to get my book published— I knew I was working with professionals with prior experience.
I was impressed that their advertising & marketing–showcased people who actually published books in Australia – I got my first glimpse of Pickawoowoo on TV one Sunday afternoon.
I learnt so much more on Publishing a book & the various software programs in the process with Pickawoowoo and now my book is being actually published globally & gaining an author platform. They provided all tools to publish a book, mentoring me and the guidance throughout the process especially when I was in doubt [which I was in most of the time] was exemplary including assigning my book to an extra-ordinary editor , thank you Eddie.
Working with Pickawoowoo gave me my dream come true (published author). The overall process from start to end, the coaching & mentoring through the process was unique—it's the first time I worked with such a dedicated team who assisted me every step of the way . I believe both first time authors as well as authors who have already published will benefit from their experience.
If you are on the fence with your book—don't be. Its guaranteed with Pickawoowoo! Believe me—My book is proof of this & it's an Australian company too, so the support is awesome, the turn-around time for emails is almost immediate, the coaching and mentoring has been fantastic , thank you Pickawoowoo—I will definitely do it all over again in my next book.
Thank you Julie-Ann for all your guidance and especially taking my late Friday afternoon phone calls & coaching me, thank you for responding to my mundane emails—I know you must have been overwhelmed by them at times—especially whenever I hit the “panic” button.
Thank you Eddie – you turn words into magic
Thank you Evelyn – for all your great advice and guidance & replying to ALL my emails
Thank you Nicole for the lovely tone in your voice and all your help.
May Pickawoowoo reach the stars always
Warm Regards, Ashika
