PageTurner adheres to the highest industry standards to bring about word class masterworks and exceptional author experience is always central to everything we do. Here’s what our clients have to say about their publishing journey:
About eight years ago I self-published the first version of my sci-fi book, Cosmic Swan. I sold a few hundred copies. As time went on I realized that first version was only the first act of the bigger story. I got serious about extending the text because I like the story so much. PageTurner discovered that first version somewhere along the way and suggested by email that I might like to give them a chance to re-publish with support for distribution and publicity. I jumped at the chance because I knew I had a better and bigger story. Without the final draft ready, they encouraged and supported me in finishing the story. I didn’t finish on my original schedule, but they worked with me, were very patient, and helped get the covers done first. The covers turned out very well, are eye catching, and invite readers to take a look. I recently finished the final draft. They produced a high-quality book, fine chapter headings, and text layout. They are setting up publicity and links to Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I’m working on another book and look forward to working with them again.

To Writers, Readers and Interested Persons
I feel obliged to write this token of esteem and appreciation in respect to services received from what is now my favorite publishing house, PageTurner, Press and Media. Before proceeding to explain why I am proud to be associated as a client of the said company, allow me, please to introduce myself.
My name is Leyland King, a citizen of these United States of America. Over the past two years I have authored and successfully published three books. The first two were completed through every stage including marketing by a well-known business, which taught me the painful lesson on when to run from a publisher. The work was of low quality and the marketing outreach predatory. My third book, Poetry of Life, was contracted to PageTurner. I am pleased to present an unsolicited attestation, as to the very successful conclusion of our contract. From initial engagement I received due respect, advice and early compromises where necessary. The quality of editing, print and illustrations truly exceeded my expectations. I do not hesitate to commend the staff, particularly the printers, for their excellence in customer satisfaction.
—Leyland A. King author of the book “Poetry of Life: Lyrics, lines, and short stories”.
"Over recent years I have had association with a number of publishers/printers, all of whom have offered various levels of support for my writing, however none of whom have offered me the same sense of belonging and understanding as Page Turner staff have done with the updating and publication of my most recent two books - How we built the Gambia army and A Broken Man: The Rocky Shoals of Marriage, Remarriage and Divorce - I sincerely thank you for your commitment to date and look forward to a long and prosperous publishing career with you and your dedicated staff".
—Trevor Stewart author of the books “How We Built the Gambia Army” and “A Broken Man”..
I am extremely impressed with the professionalism I have received from Page Turner, Press and Media. The rest of the staff have always gotten back to me in a timely fashion regarding the reproduction of my book. Everyone has been courteous and helpful with any questions I might have. This is the first time I have worked with an illustrator and the results are one of the best I have ever seen! I'm thrilled!
My Advisor has been very helpful with payment options as well . I am retired and sometimes funds are very tight. They have been supportive and outstanding in offering other alternatives to make the process run smoothly and effortlessly. I would not hesitate to refer PageTurner, Press and Media to anyone here in Canada who may be wanting to write a book and are looking for a good publishing house. Thank you for all that you have done (and continue to do) and I look forward to receiving the finished product and moving ahead with the marketing of my book. I can't wait!
—Margaret Churchill author of the book “My Raccoon Family: Adventures in My Back Yard”.
My book was a great challenge to put together. It has many photographs, and they needed to be lined up just right. I appreciate the work and diligence of the PageTurner staff, not only patiently working with me as the author, but making sure that everything was done as I requested. I was very pleased with the final results. The cover looks great. And the listed price is much better than what other publishers have suggested. Thank you PageTurner staff for your work.
—Ron Vance author of the book “Bible Sticks an Unlikely Calling”.
I really appreciate not only the professionalism of PageTurner but also how the team worked to bring the production through within a possible short time.
—Alfred Prempeh Dapaah author of the book “Fear Not Only Believe”.
I have been impressed with the rapid and quality looks of the book covers and the set up for print. I have used another publisher in the past and did not receive the same personal contact or seeming openness I have experienced with Page Turner. I am looking forward with high hopes my dreams will not be let down.
—Dr. Edward Morse author of the book “Evolution: New Human Abilities: Blugee, Book 1 of 4”.
PageTurner, Press and Media’s help for me was totally amazing. Not only did they work on the cover of my book and gave it a totally amazing look they also went on the inside of it and did just as amazing with the pages as the they did for the cover. I do in time hope to get more of my poems published and I know right now the only ones I want to do that for me is your team of amazing people plus I love how understanding you all are with how tight money is for me being a single mom on ODSP and allow me to set how much I can pay each month and you’re still willing to go to the next step of publishing my book even though I have not finished paying the money. The other companies I went with would not do that until everything was paid in full which made stuff harder for me. I thank you all again for the amazing work and job you all have done to help me out. Thank you from the bottom of my heart
—Ruth Jensen author of the book “Right from the Heart”.
I have had a very good experience with PageTurner, Press and Media. The general tone and helpfulness of all involved with me in achieving the final copy of my book has been exceptional. I never felt under any great pressure while getting the editing absolutely right through the changes and that was really helpful. I say thank you to all-involved so far.
—Jacqueline Wearing author of the book “Great’Ma”.
Shortly after engaging the services of Page Turner Press and Media to do a revision of my book, The Emperor's Regret, a folktale, I knew I had made an excellent choice. Their team took a real interest in what my plans were for the book. The process began not long afterwards and I was kept abreast of the progress being made during it. Not only was the folktale given an attractive format, the incredible illustrations went far beyond my expectation. The entire process was completed when promised, and was truly a positive experience. I certainly would consider using their services again, and highly recommend them to other authors.
—Barbara A. Pierce author of the book "The Emperor’s Regret".
I have just received my new book and I am so thrilled to see the new-look of it. I can’t thank you all enough for your patience and attention to detail making my book look so professional and eye catching. It is all that I had hoped for and I now look forward to reaping the rewards of all yours and mine teamwork!
—Ellen Kay author of the book "A Tale of Four Tails".
I felt that Page Turner actually listened during the editing process and has resulted in a good product. In addition, I felt the new design cover really captured the flavor of the book. All in all, it was a good experience.
—Arthur Cantrell author of the book "Flight of the Valkyrie".
I really enjoy working with the staff at PageTurner, Press and Media. They took the time to go through the entire publishing process with me so that I knew exactly what they would do and what I had to do. Each person that I came in contact with treated me as an individual and not just a client and were eager to fulfill my request. I am very happy with the professional service that they have provided and look forward to working with them even more in the future."
—Vicky-Lyn Ashby author of the book “Colors of the Heart”.
My decision to publish children's books was a very difficult one. I realized I didn't know anything about publishing a book. My working experience was very different. When it came the time to find a publisher, it was a very scary, time consuming and expensive. I did however publish three children's books but was very unhappy regarding several issues with my previous publisher especially, because the price of the books was totally dictated by the publisher.
PageTurner, Press and Media contacted me regarding re-branding the three books I had published with a different publisher. I was informed that we could set a reasonable price for my books that I believed is essential in selling them. I felt my books had a special message that possibly would help children learn great lessons in sharing, bullying and never giving up when attempting to accomplish a goal. Also, perhaps they would enjoy reading them. I must admit I was very skeptical of what PageTurner was telling me because of what I had experienced with the publisher I initially was with.
PageTurner’s Account Executive has been the person who was dedicated as my contact. He has helped me step by step in re-publishing one of my books. He has been extremely helpful. Their Head of Production guided me throughout the submission process which has been my rock through this process. It was difficult in trusting these two people at first but, slowly I began to believe that Page Turner along with these two was the Publisher who could lead me through the publishing process even being the novice that I was. The one big thing I learned in publishing a book was the importance of finding a publishing company that you can trust. I believe PageTurner is that company!
—Patricia A. Thorpe author of the book, Harry the Hummingbird: "A Lesson Learned".
The so-called traditional route in publication involves finding or chancing upon a well established company willing to sponsor a writer’s work by bearing the cost of his or her living expenses, the printing and marketing of the work. This is the plan followed by university teachers for example. But the author who is also a prudent saver has another option for his or her consideration. This is the route of self publishing. In this case the author needs to find a publishing house with a reputation for good work, honesty and reasonable turn-around time. I am pleased to vouch for Page-Turner, Press and Media on all three of these characteristics. I must add that it has been a pleasure to deal with the company’s personnel during the publication of my book.
—Robert D, Finch, author of the book “Great Objectives”
My experience was very good with PageTurner, Press and Media. The production and support are very professional in the interactions we have had. I really like the design of the cover and the interior of La Aventura de Algodon de Azucar. I appreciate the ability to have unlimited revisions. It is not an easy book in that there is Spanish and English and a lot of minute details but they did all of the revisions. On the whole it was a very positive experience. I guess the real evidence will lie in the sales numbers! Thank you very much!
—Amba/ Tara Giri author of the book “ La Aventura de Algodon de Azucar”.

I feel in my best interest they gear you in order to succeed. Look no further PageTurner, Press and Media provides exceptional service, to meet the growing demand of the author”.
—Mr. Jamel Gross author of the book “A Knight Without His Lovers”.
I am pleased with the way the pictures and other campus displays turned out. They are very distinct and sharp. The explanations describing the narratives, preface, Merrill Land Grant Acts, and Thurgood Marshall College Fund found in my booklet were met with satisfaction. Kudos should go to PageTurner, Press and Media and PageTurner’s group of outstanding assistants.
—Mr. Alphonso W. Knight Sr., author of the book " Historically Black Universities and Colleges”
“PageTurner has fulfilled and exceeded its commitment to me and my book, A Year in the Life of Dr. Fox. I particularly like their responsiveness and user friendly, considerate approach to self-publishing. I've used two other self-publishers and PageTurner has met my goals, concerns and desires by far the best. Its staff are friendly, appropriate, knowledgeable, and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend them to other authors.”
—Frederick Malphurs , author of the book “A Year in the Life of Dr. Fox”.
