Our clients return to us for multiple projects. Here's what they have to say.
I had used some pretty good designers for my first few books, but for what I considered my life’s work I wanted something as unique as my topic. From the moment that I began working with Words of Passion, it was collaborative. They were truly interested in understanding my book to capture the essence of it in the design and layout. From the editing, which was flawless, to getting it launched on Kindle was awesome, and it was all seamless and ahead of schedule. But, more importantly, I have a book that I’m proud of not just because of the content but because of the design. You can tell a book by its cover when you use Words of Passion!

I'm so grateful that I had you edit my book! Several local self-published authors have asked me to read and comment on their books and most needed a better editor. I know the book is better because of you. Thanks for your insights!

The hallmark of a great editor is the ability to get inside your story and tactfully point out where it needs improvement. Nanette has that ability and has generously employed it to take my stories to a higher level. I have no doubt that the praise and awards my books have received are directly related to Nanette’s talents.

Working with Words of Passion was a pleasure and a joy. Nanette’s questions, edits, and suggestions helped to bring out the best of my book, and all while allowing my character’s distinct voice to come through. I have had many compliments on the finished book’s appearance as well. I highly recommend Words of Passion.

Nanette Littlestone is that marvel of the literary world, an editor who is both exacting and kind. I trust her judgment implicitly, although on the few occasions when I’ve dug in my heels over a particular suggestion of hers, she has been more than willing to discuss her reasoning. Her reasons are usually better than mine.
Fran Stewart, The Biscuit McKee Mystery Series
You Can Heal Your Gut was my first attempt at writing a book and I needed guidance and reassurance. Words of Passion was all that and more. Nanette was a great source of information and encouragement, explaining the editing process in precise detail and tactfully suggesting improvements when needed. Her kindness and expertise were invaluable for me as an inexperienced writer. Words of Passion is dependable, compassionate, capable, and dedicated. I would definitely recommend them to all writers, regardless of their previous experience in the publishing world.
Cheryl Moates, You Can Heal Your Gut
Working with Nanette has been such a delicious pleasure. Though I had published magazine articles, Embracing Your Wild Feminine was my first book. I love the creativity of writing but find some of the ingredients to publishing a book a little boring and/or overwhelming. Thanks to Nanette, I enjoyed the entire process. Her knowledge, encouragement, and sincerity guided me beautifully from start to finish. What I loved most was her enthusiasm and ability to make me feel that my book was indeed special and important. Her suggestions never tried to change my intent; she just asked if there might be a better way to say it. I always felt in charge. I highly recommend Nanette to all writers, no matter where you are in the process. She will help you realize a beautiful book that you will be so proud of.
Joy Moates, Embracing Your Wild Feminine
Nanette and Peter did an outstanding job designing the interior layout and formatting of my debut novel. They patiently answered all my questions and offered helpful suggestions and advice during the whole process—which can be overwhelming for a new self-publishing author. From the first moment of making contact until the finishing touches were added, I never felt rushed to make a decision and the whole experience was relaxed and pleasant. Their expertise shows in the finished product and I look forward to working with them again.

Nanette from Words of Passion was just who I needed to get inspired and stay inspired to complete my recently published book From Bud to Blossom: Our Lesbian Journeys. She went the extra mile in answering questions and helping me set deadlines for completion. I knew I could always count on her to keep me motivated to pursue the completion of this book.
