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 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.

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.

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.

This is the second book I have had published. The first, printed in Perth, was an unmitigated disaster and the 200 copies I ordered were buried by my husband with his tractor on our farm… a very expensive hole! Understandingly, I was very wary with the publication of my second book. I visited Pickawoowoo Publishers after I saw their advertisement in the Bunbury Chamber of Commerce Magazine, noted the quality of their books and was very agreeably impressed. Over a period of three months I made corrections and changes and each time these were done briskly and returned to me for closer scrutiny. Advice was always forthcoming and freely given if I debated any point. Pickawowoo utilizes a network of highly trained Designers, Graphic Artists and Professionals who complement their activities. Costs are always quoted up-front, so one is fully aware of the process costs at each stage. When my published books finally arrived in the post, I was extremely impressed with their quality and was ecstatic over the beautifully designed dust cover. It took me 21 years to research this Family History and I can honestly say it is far more professional than I envisaged it would be. I know where I will take my next book for publication!
With sincere appreciation to Julie-Ann and the Team.
