Stephen WilliamsAuthor of Heroes and tiny giants
Many thanks for your guidance over the past weeks. It was an anxious time for us doing something that we were unfamiliar with but you made our journey much easier than we expected. Thank you for always being polite and prompt in your replies. "We were always kept in the loop and there we no hidden costs. Everything was as you said from the start. We had an exciting and professionally run experience. Many thanks."
Stuart MichaelsAuthor of Nothing's forever
'I'd like to thank all at Socciones Editoria Digitale for their help in publishing Nothing's Forever. Their approach was very professional, any queries I had were answered quickly and the whole process was undertaken without a fuss. Thank you.'
Susan M ArrowsmithAuthor of Finding Bertie & The diary of a modern day white witch
"Publishing with Socciones has been a good experience because you have taken all the worry out of the process and I know I can trust your expertise. I hope to work with you again soon."
Allan FinniganAuthor of PURE GENIUS & PURE NONSENSE
‘I have now had two books published by Socciones. My second book contains unorthodox layout poetry and prose, these were sensitively formatted to present the shape and form of my work in precise detail. Both books greatly benefit from having brilliant covers designed by Socciones. I can wholeheartedly commend their professional services to any author seeking to have a manuscript published to print or as an eBook.’
Chris RamanAuthor of Only fools and losers
Extremely pleased with the service. Great cover design & layout.
Mark WoolridgeAuthor of Unconsecrated Ground
The service was exactly as advertised "on the can" and I will be using it again.
Martin W BidzinskiAuthor of The soccer coaching manual & Soccer Ergonomics
