Take the time to write the book you've been dreaming of, or dust off that manuscript that has been hiding under the bed.
What our authors are saying:
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."
...Since The Troy Book Makers first copy of my book I am still in awe as to where this book has gone. I find it hard to believe we are in our eleventh year... My many thanks and gratitude to you and your people for doing such a great job.
In August 2011, I visited TBM, held one of their books in my hands, and said to myself "someday, this will be my book." And less than a year later, it was. Then again in 2014. And 2020. And I couldn't have done it - and stayed sane - without the steady guidance of TBM. I've known people who had horrific publishing experiences with big online outfits, and really wanted a personal guide, and I cannot say enough good things about how they worked with me. From the initial concept to the finished products, they were with me every step of the way, de-mystifying and de-stressing the process as professionals who know and adapt to their industry. Their expertise in design, ISBNs, publishing processes, etc. saved me from doing the research that I really didn't want to do (and still might get wrong) so I know I saved time and money (and aggravation) in the long run. A plus for me is that they're women-owned and operated, in a downtown that's trying to make a comeback, so everything aligns!
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.
A first-time book author has lots of questions for the publisher. So many, it would be understandable if their incoming emails were eventually blocked. That never happened at The Troy Book Makers.
The Troy Book Makers are the ones who turned my raw manuscript into a pretty book. Special thanks to Melissa and everyone else for their patience, flexibility and talent.
...You guys should know that writers who pick up the book, fan through it, fondle it, say whoever did this did it well. Everyone at TBM should be proud. I am.
12 out of 10 stars.

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.
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.
