Gill Capper-Raphael, ‘Dogalogue’

"Chella from Honeybee Books was great to work with; unflappable, efficient, professional, encouraging, and genuinely engaged with my project. For me, it was the first time I had published a book and it was quite nerve-racking but, with her sound guidance, it all went smoothly and I was very pleased with the result. I would recommend Honeybooks to anyone."

A.J.Vey, ‘The Ideal World of Empress Mei Ying’

“My experience of self-publishing with Honeybee Books has been entirely good.

From the outset I have experienced nothing but courtesy, prompt and efficient service, and above all valuable advice regarding the appearance and production of my book. The recommended artist also produced an outstanding and eye-catching painting for the front cover.

I would not hesitate to use Honeybee Books again. “

Denise Bilton, ‘Last Days at Lanercost’ (on behalf of Dr Antonia Gransden)

“I would highly recommend Honeybee Books on every front for their professionalism. They made the whole process of self-publishing so smooth from start to finish. The terms of business supplied covered every aspect of the job and the initial estimate provided at the start of the work almost matched the final invoice.

Much thought went into providing the most suitable typeface and layout and the research into providing a suitable design for the book cover was very good and the result excellent.

Thank you Honeybee Books!”

Paul Eyres, ‘Starting Up in Multi-service Cleaning’

"Honeybee books have helped me to not only achieve a life long dream, but also establish a second dimension to my existing business by providing publishing services for my cleaning book series, at very affordable prices, when going with a national publisher would have been twice the price. Having a one-on-one relationship with Chella and her staff has also meant I can get great advice which I may not have gotten from a national publisher.

Thanks Honeybee Books for your help past, present, future.”

Sally Stringer, ‘The Adventures Of Ben Cabbage’

“I have found everyone that I have had contact with from Honeybee Books very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.

On initial contact I was listened to, my requirements looked at in detail and I was given a very competitive price to have my children’s book put into print.

I have been delighted with my book. The quality is very good and I would have no hesitation in telling other would be authors to make contact with Honeybee Books and ‘go for it’.  I have had a lifelong ambition fulfilled and could not be happier with my book.”

Marie Robinson, The Buzzzzby Stories

“Honeybee Books is simply a brilliant publisher, what more needs to be said? The excellent work ethic really does speak for itself in my published children’s book.

I went to Chella at Honeybee Books with a childhood character and a story, she has been such a positive inspiration and after agreeing to meet me over coffee, a few months later I could not believe my book was in print.  This is all down to her hard work, commitment and encouragement.

Having my book published has been such a wonderful experience, I have almost completed my second book, Who’d of thought!

I strongly recommend Honeybee Books for any writing project, they will dig deep to give you 100% and will work hard to get the job right.”

Brian Guy, ‘Cameos of War’

“I have no hesitation at all in saying what a wonderful service I had from Honeybee books, helpful and understanding. A great help for the New Authors.”
