"On a personal note aside - just to let you know how impressive and appreciated your responsiveness and help with clarifying procedures is to people participating in your IBA program. Thanks for your time and good counsel." —Carol Altman
"Over the last decade, having a 1-800 number and a full-time employee to staff the phone was an expense I decided to cut. Also, it was easier to receive e-mails from international authors and publishers rather than figuring out international time zones to call them back (12 midnight in Los Angeles is 8am in London, etc.) Any author or publisher that wishes to talk via phone is more than welcome to make an appointment with us via e-mail.”
—Jeffrey Keen, President & CEO, American Book Fest
