We Love Our Clients <3

June 15, 2020– We are thrilled to work with our ideal clients on special projects. We’re also so grateful that they choose us to help publish their work even though they have many companies to pick from. We just thought we’d share this super-special letter with you from one of our favourite clients. A huge thanks to Alex Goubar for her illustrative talent and for being an essential part of our team! Thanks for the beautiful letter, Joanne! X

Dear Lacey, I want to thank you and Alex for helping me achieve my goal of publishing The Adventures of Carlos: Carlos Goes on Vacation.   Thank you for your encouragement as well as being there for me every step of the way.  I will never forget the thrill of seeing my very first published book!

Lacey, Working with you has been an absolute pleasure and I am so glad that our paths crossed! Making the investment to contract with Pandamonium Publishing House to self publish my children’s book was a big decision, but was also the best decision I made! Your professionalism, mentoring and guidance in publishing The Adventures of Carlos was impressive!  As you indicated in our early conversations, the goal of purchasing your firm’s marketing package is to teach the author how to self publish for immediate and future projects as well as the handling the book illustration process; not only did I learn and gain invaluable knowledge of the publishing world, but it also helped me develop some confidence in a field I knew nothing about.  Being a savvy and successful entrepreneur is surrounding yourself with highly competent individuals; Pandamonium Publishing House delivers on that! 

Alex, My sincere thanks for making The Adventures of Carlos look so amazing!  The way you captured the character of Carlos and brought him to life in the story was pure magic!  I feel so fortunate to have had the pleasure of having you illustrate this story; I hope that we can work together again on the next book in the series, Carlos Goes to the Hospital. 
It has been such a great experience working with you both! Thank you for welcoming me into your world at Pandamonium Publishing as well as that of published authors!

Sincerely, Joanne (Frenchie Publishing)

Quit Settling For SH*T You Don’t Want…

May 8, 2019-We often put up with things in our lives because our standards aren’t high enough, or we don’t have any standards in place, to begin with. You may be settling in your life and your writing career because the expectations you have for yourself and your work are too low. What you can do right now, is decide that you aren’t going to settle for anything less than what you’re willing to work for. You’re going to raise your standards and know better, do better, and be better.

Grab a pen and paper to get really clear on what your standards are for:

  1. Your business-How do you want your business to be run? How much money do you want to make? How will you know if you’re successful? What are your goals? What are you not willing to compromise? etc.
  2. The clients you take on– Here’s your chance to make a list on what your ideal client looks like!
  3. Your relationships (work relationships too)- Who do you want to work with? What kind of relationship do you want to have with your workmates, buyers, readers, etc.?
  4. Your travel/lifestyle– Where do you want your work to take you? Where do you want to work from? Do you want a mobile office? Certain work hours? etc. Do you want to less time working?
  5. Your work– What is your legacy that you will leave behind? What is the point and purpose of your work?
  6. Your team– What do you want from your teammates? What kind of things will you expect? What will happen when expectations aren’t met? What kind of team do you want to play for?

If you don’t have standards, or again, those standards are too low, you’re selling yourself short. Make a promise to your self that you will do better! Time to raise the bar and in six months from now you’ll be happy you did. Your life is about to change. Now get to work. X LLB
