Chris Angermann is an outstanding coach, editor, and all-around publishing athlete for any author who is considering assisted self-publishing. When I approached him with my first manuscript, convinced that it was ready to go, he gently and professionally convinced me that it could use some work. Before we were done, the book was far more focused, with half the length and twice the value for the reader. He always kept me in the driver’s seat but managed to help me produce a wonderful piece of work. He knows the industry well, can look at an author’s material from the reader’s perspective, and has a wealth of additional resources for cover, layout, and website design to bring complementary strengths to the party. His guidance and feedback, even on such specialized topics as website design, was invaluable. Chris Angermann is simply the best at his profession: you can’t go wrong when you choose to work with him.

Chris is well educated as a writer, editor and pub-lisher. With his experience in journalism, screen writing, editing of novels, history books and memoirs, as well as working as a professional theater director of new American plays, I knew I had a winner. His patience and endurance during the editing and re-editing of my book cannot be measured. I will highly recommend Chris to my friends and colleagues.

Chris Angermann is a good listener, interviewer and editor with a gift for bringing out the best in a story. I could never have written and published my book without his considerable experience. Presently, I am writing my first novel and I would not consider proceeding without his advice and support.
