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)

Why don’t the Yankees Have…

October 7, 2019- On Friday, I was fortunate enough to attend the ALDS game 1 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. It was an epic game with quite possibly one of the greatest catches of the playoffs made by number 99 (Aaron Judge). Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love baseball and team sports, but I think there’s a lesson here that has to do with writing…let me explain.

Do you know why the Yankees are one of few teams in the MLB that don’t have the players names on the back of their uniforms? Because they believe that NO ONE PLAYER IS GREATER THAN THE TEAM AS A WHOLE. Read that again and let it sink in. The same thing goes for me and my team-no one is greater than the team as a whole and as a team we are much stronger than individual authors. We have the same goals in mind, we are moving in the same direction, and we all have our specific talents that we celebrate together. Everyone on this team has something special and unique about them, but at the end of the day, we all play for the same House.

The same thing goes for publishing, the author is only part of the story. To get a book to publication and on the shelf, it takes a literal team of people to make it happen. It takes everyone from illustrators, to graphic artists, to marketing people, to cover designers, to book store owners, and a bunch more people in between to get a book to market; that’s why no one can do this alone and it’s important to remember that we are not the ones who make it happen by ourselves even though we may be the ones front and center sometimes.

So, I’d like to personally thank each and every one of my teammates for making this House as strong as it is and for being the amazing people they are.
