2QT provided a first class service from start to finish and beyond. What I think sets this publisher apart is their willingness to sit down face to face with the author and discuss the project from the word go. I would describe 2QT as ‘A Listening Publisher’. They are open minded extremely versatile and will dovetail their services to meet the authors needs. When I approached 2QT my book was very much a work in progress, I knew where it was going, but knew that it needed a frank critique. The candid feedback that 2QT were able to provide on my initial manuscript was invaluable. It was critical to the ultimate success of the story. The editing process was superb, both objective and encouraging. I felt that my editor really ‘tuned in’ to my writing style, his approach was to suggest alternatives rather than recommend changes. This worked well for me and more often than not the editor's insights enhanced the quality of my writing. Looking back it was a real partnership approach. Final polishing was achieved by excellent proof reading by people with the necessary eye for detail. I knew that my book would be compared with several recently published works of the same genre, so it was imperative that the look and feel of the book conveyed quality. 2QT place a premium on the ‘feel’ of the end product . I worked closely with the design and layout team sharing ideas about the books image . I am delighted with its overall appearance, particularly how well the graphics and numerous plates have reproduced. 2QT handled all the ‘behind the scenes action’ seamlessly ensuring that my book is now being distributed well and is available as widely as possible. In summary the whole process felt personalized, professional and wonderfully easy. Apart from the writing that is! That’s still the tough bit. Will I be approaching 2QT with my next book? Absolutely, if they’ll have me.
