“I know that DM stands for Direct Message, but in the case of Central Park South Publishing, it stands for Dream Makers. I felt compelled to write a memoir about working for the most influential film producer of the ’70’s, Tony Bill, and how his company in Venice, California spawned a host of talented filmmakers, but I didn’t know how to get it published. Then I submitted it to the team at Central Park South Publishing, and I knew that it had found a home. They immediately recognized the potential in my story, and not only gave me the go-ahead for publishing it, but also included me in every aspect of the process, from the cover design to the internet marketing strategy. I can honestly say that “Hollywood Wingman ” turned out exactly as I had hoped, and I can’t imagine that it would have happened the way it did anywhere else. Linda and her staff truly respect the craft of writing, and will do anything necessary to further the creative process. As a writer, you will feel that your project fulfilled its full creative potential when it is published by Central Park South Publishing.” — Hollywood Wingman by Joe Bucz
“As a self-publishing author for the past 14 years, I decided to engage with Central Park South Publishing to carry the third novel in my Jack Calder series, Savage Payback. From the outset, the attention to detail from Central Park South Publishing has been outstanding. The desire to put the author at the centre of what they do is superb. The cover was given a terrific revamp, and I was kept in the loop throughout the entire process of getting the book out to over 100 distribution outlets. I full-heartedly recommend Linda and her team to any author seeking to follow my path.” —Savage Payback by Seumas Gallacher
“My experience with Central Park South Publishing has far exceeded my expectations in every respect for a “hybrid” publishing experience. The editors and designers are top notch professionals and have taken a deep interest in helping my book become the best that it can be. They are dedicated to perfection and are flexible beyond what most commercial publishers might be. Cover design and interior design, excellent. Editing approach allowing the author several rounds of edits, excellent. My book is truly a better product than I feel it would have been through mainstream, or self-publishing options.” —Better Endings: A Guide to Creative Re-Visioning by Dr. Linda K. Watts
“Central Park South Publishing brought my book to fruition, and I could not be happier with the results. I investigated other publishers but kept coming back to Linda’s team. They are professional and responsive and provided flexibility where I needed it. The book is beautiful and landed on the top of Amazon’s list as the #1 new release in breast cancer within ten days of publishing! Thank you!!”–The Upside to Everything, Even Breast Cancer by Theresa Drescher
I will always remember the first time my students saw their names and work in print, thanks to the anthologies of their essays that I have published for the last two years through Central Park Publishing. These volumes have become respected educational textbooks, and life-changing boosts to my students’ self-esteem, influencing some of them to pursue writing careers. Thank you Central Park Publishing for the artistry with which you perform an invaluable, transformative service.
