Bill Manning - The Everlasting Soul: Jesus Meets His Soul
"I received 3 calls from publishers regarding republishing The Relentless Jew. I declined all three because they offered nothing new or promising. Actually I turned down the first call from Lettra Press. The reason for that my past history with publishers was disappointing and actually frightening. It was the second call from Lettra Press that I stopped and listened. It made sense to me and gave me hope that ‘here indeed is a company I can work with. I am happy to report I was not wrong and better yet they have been so right.
The experience has actually been joyful and fulfilling. Each step of the way was enjoyable and a learning experience. When things seemed to be difficult someone on the staff smoothed the problem out, and the problem just disappeared. I will recommend Lettra Press to my granddaughter who is writing a novel and to members of our writers group. I will not wait until my next book is finished to contact your company, but will draw upon the experience and professionalism of your company for moral support during those days when everything seems to dry up.
I wish to thank the entire staff for the help and strength that encourages me to continue writing and thank you for the beautiful book ‘The Everlasting Soul’ became. Like a new born child emerging from the womb, my months of hard work, my efforts, are all I could have hoped for."
Lionel B. Harris - Racism, Sexism, Trumpism, Pseudo-Christianity and The Cinema
"Over the years (several decades, in fact), I have corresponded and interacted with numerous publishing facilities. Although many of those endeavors were fruitless and somewhat disenchanting, I have been able to reconcile with them, labeling them as growing pains and upward rungs on a ladder.
I said all that to say this: Throughout my writing life I have dealt with "professional" individuals who proved to be uncaring and disingenuous.
However, when I reflect on both of you fellows, I perceive you guys as competent, genuine and compassionate. And those are the qualities that are pervasive in my mind when I think of our year-long publishing trek. I thank you guys and I shall cherish you both always!"

Arthur Kasper - The Sheriff's Dream: Jacob's Redemption
"My experience with Lettra was and still is excellent compared with other publishers I have worked with. I say this after being a writer for more than 50 years because of the help I received for production of my books and the courtesies I received from all who represent the company.
I am very happy with the way my business with Lettra is going. And I am thankful for all the knowledge of the self-publishing business I received so I understand it better. My experience with Lettra leads me to think I will be more successful in my writing career."
Matt MacGregor - I Am a Sidewalk
"I was approached by Lettra Press last fall by a publisher of theirs, Anna Cortez. From the initial interaction and ongoing republication efforts of my book I have been most pleased with the results. The Lettra Press model was very easy to understand the process for and business aspects of republication. I appreciated the fact that I sensed Anna had read my story and truly grasped its potential. Her initiative in exploring options assisted in my decisions moving forward.
We have almost completed the unveiling of the republished book, 'I Am a Sidewalk' in an ebook, paperback and hardback format, available via Amazon.
A subsequent, well explained and economically purchased marketing plan will help expose my book to a greater audience who can benefit from the story the book is telling. I appreciate the hands on approach Anna has provided as she is the single point person for my needs."
Tim Carter - God's Rhyme, God Still Rhymes, Living In God's Rhyme
"After publishing three books of Christian poetry in three years I was getting a bit discouraged. After all, I am a poet, not a marketeer, not to be confused with musketeer. One day I received a phone call that I did not answer. In the voice mail I was asked to call Lettra about republishing. I did not call back, no more publishers for me. A week or so later I received and email from Anna Cortez, Senior Consultant, at Lettra Press. We discussed republishing Living in God’s Rhyme. She explained the process. When she got to the part of giving me an idea of what the book would sell for, I was sold, half of the current edition.
We discussed marketing ideas and I finally brought up the idea of republishing the first two books. Over the next few weeks I think we talked four or five times a week. She told me that she enjoyed the poems that she had read. She has always been encouraging and supportive.
The process of republishing three books at the same time has gone very smoothly. Reviewing the interior galleries and making the few changes that were necessary took no time at all. At times I got the corrections the same day. We agreed that new cover designs would be good. That process also went smoothly. It seemed that Anna had the same sense about the message I wanted portrayed on the covers as I did.
Lettra is now posting on my book Facebook page, God Still Rhymes. It adds some validation to what I am doing. I am looking forward the marketing that has been planned for the books, especially since they are being marketed together.
My experience with Lettra Press has been nothing but positive. I have confidence that with the lower price of the books and the marketing sales will be much improved. What I have really enjoyed is the speed at which the process is taking. Having been through publishing three books I know that the first publishing takes longer, especially considering my use or lack of use of punctuation. The two previous publishers had been encouraging. However, I feel very comfortable working with Lettra Press and am more encouraged than ever before.
Would I recommend Lettra Press to writers I know? Definitely yes. I am involved with a small local Writers group. There are a couple who haven’t completed their manuscript and one who is looking for another publisher. I am recommending Lettra to them. And for the book my daughter has been asked to help ghost write, I will be recommending Lettra to the idea man. Of course I will, especially since she has asked me to help."
