Kathe Kokolias

Thanks to TBM, my first book, Spandex & Black Boots, essays from an abundant life, has been a success and something I am proud of! I look forward to publishing my next book with TBM.

I am thrilled to have worked with The Troy Book Makers on my memoir "College and Eighth." I especially want to give kudos to Melissa for her professionalism and hands on help.

I am sure that you have an untold number of people who sing praises for Troy Book Makers. Happily I will stand with them in that queue.
"TBM has orchestrated and printed two books for me.The process for both books was thoughtful, professional, friendly and helpful on the part of both of the TBM women who worked with me. The challenges I brought to the table were, I think, small in comparison to what I imagine your staff encounters on a daily basis. I can’t imagine the patience/hand holding/corralling that goes into dealing with so many tender authors…So, hats off to you and the stunning work that you do, but especially for the professionalism that doesn’t falter from the first inquiry to holding the book in hand."

The book looks wonderful! I'm so proud of it. [Jessika] and TBM have done a terrific job, and I couldn't be happier to be working with you. I look ahead to publication of remarkable books and many successes together.
