“Central Park Publishing has done a very good job of getting my book to the finish line. They were very helpful with the editing. Their art department was fabulous, and their professionalism shown through by the works of their team. My co-authors and I were very comfortable with the process and the ease of which they worked with us. As this was our first book, I thought the whole process was well accomplished.” —Isle of Hope by Michael Hawkes, with Susan Hawkes and Stephen Wunderli

“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

“I felt compelled to write a memoir about working for the most influential film producer of the ’70’s, Tony Bill…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.” — Hollywood Wingman by Joe Bucz

“Shock & Awe! Working with Central Park South Publishing was not only the highest level of professionalism, it was a seamless process. But, most of all, they ‘got’ my book. The design, the nurturing and guidance was spot-on from beginning to end. It was extraordinary how much they saw my vision for my book Secession.” —Secession by Dr. John Mayer and Koji Steven Sakai

“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

A Vanishing in Greenwich Village by Liz Amaral
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.
