Last year, we celebrated our Ohio authors in a special post: Publishing Books Close to Home. We love that we are accessible to writers throughout Ohio, and we learn so much through their stories. Whether it's the survival story of a veteran, the memoir of a Slaughterhouse Kid, the legacy of a respected nun, or even a cookbook (but Not Just Another Cookbook), our authors stories become a part of us, and a part of our own "story" as a book publisher. So here's round two, celebrating our Ohio authors in 2014!
Wendell and Rebecca Cultice, Slaughterhouse Kid: "Once we walked into the Orange Frazer offices, we knew we were in the right place. Marcy’s office was one that was warm, inviting, loaded with books, in a vintage setting, one in which we immediately felt comfortable. The entire staff is personable, knowledgeable, and extremely professional while projecting a relaxed atmosphere. Our initial impression that we’d found a perfect match proved to be true. Marcy, Sarah, and Brittany were as eager as we to have a finished product of quality—one in which we could be proud. The experience was all that we’d hoped for and more. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with this talented group of people. Their slogan says it all—Your story—beautifully told. It was and we thank them!"
Colleen Brethen, Not Just Another Cookbook: "It's a masterpiece. I think it's absolutely beautiful."
University of Cincinnati College of Nursing, 125th Anniversary: "As we celebrate our anniversary, it is important that we celebrate our roots and all that has been accomplished over the past 125 years. We have a strong history of nursing leadership and excellence and we wanted a book that captured that.” --Greer Glazer, RN, CNP, PhD, FAAN, Dean, University of Cincinnati College of Nursing
Paul Kari, The Strength to Endure: "People are over the moon about my book, and so am I. I can't say enough good things about Orange Frazer."
John Brackett, Suffer the Little Children: "Kudos to Orange Frazer Publishers for making my story into a quality book. I found the staff to be professional and supportive as we worked together to produce a quality novel from my manuscript. Costs and services are clearly laid out at the beginning, transparency is a key aspect of how they do business."
Phil Nuxhall, Stories in the Grove: "From the moment I met Marcy and Sarah Hawley at the kick-off event for my father’s book, JOE, I knew that I had met kindred spirits. Marcy casually suggested I contact Orange Frazer if I ever decided to write a book and that’s exactly what I did. From the initial meeting to discuss the book project to the actual publication, I knew I had made the right choice. Marcy and the staff made the process one the most memorable of my life. Their attention to detail, especially with graphics, were top notch and made the final product a piece of art in my eyes. I can’t begin to imagine anyone else publishing my books who could match the quality and attention to detail of the folks at Orange Frazer Press. Truly…they are simply the best!"
Laura Pulfer, Out of Habit: "For writers, there’s nothing like the joy of handing our work over to people who fling themselves into the next step -- making it better. The Orange Frazer folks are fierce about detail and devoted to quality. Every book I’ve seen come out of those quirky offices in Wilmington is wonderful in its own way. Beautifully designed and thoughtfully executed. No cookie cutters allowed."
