“I have found BookBaby a very helpful resource, especially for a first-time author. From the start, they were there for me every step of the way, and when my needs had to be met by a different department, they did not leave me stranded but introduced me to the people who would help me for that part of the publishing process. I cannot praise BookBaby enough.” — Rena Schochet, BookBaby Author
