What Our Authors Are Saying

“By awarding me the 2015 Outstanding Writer Award, Merrimack Media launched my fiction writing career and the experience has been more than I could have hoped for. My book, Stone Angels, was a long time coming and Merrimack Media helped make it a reality. Jenny and her team have been there every step of the way, from a fantastic design to promotion and marketing, to the unforgettable day when I held the first hard copy in my hands. Their responsiveness and attention to detail have helped make Stone Angels a quality product that easily gained great buzz in the book community.”

“I researched dozens of companies in the business of publishing independent authors. I decided to hire Merrimack Media, not only because they consistently publish high-quality books at a reasonable cost, but also for the hands-on guidance and support the team provides authors after their books are published.

While her team of editors and social media people help authors, Jenny Hudson, the CEO of Merrimack Media, creates eye-catching book covers and quality web sites. On many occasions, people in the book industry have examined my book and praised the quality of paper, interior design, binding, only to express surprise to learn the book was independently published.”

“I want to share the “Wow!” response I get from many people who see my book for the first time. The attractive cover is an immediate draw, followed by more positive comments as they leaf through some of the pages. Merrimack Media’s Jenny Hudson’s creativity is evident in the beautifully designed cover of my recently published book Exploring the Charles River and in the accompanying website She has also established a variety of social media for me to use in promoting my book, Exploring the Charles River.”

“I am writing to let you know that today i got my royalties check in the mail. I wanted to just say thank you again for helping me make my dream of having a published book a reality. It’s been a long road, but in the end it was worth it. Just knowing that someone can go online and purchase a copy of my book is an amazing feeling. Thank you again for helping me accomplish this goal!”

“I want you to know that I appreciate all the good advice and attention you have given to my book. The reason I went with Merrimack was just that. I know, given my problems with technology, that I need someone who can give me personal attention, and you’ve done just that.”

“I’ve had a great experience having my book Sex With a Married Woman published by Merrimack Media, the best publishing experience I’ve ever had.  Jenny Hudson, the owner and publisher, has made it easy.  She really knows her business, taking care of all the steps in the process of getting a book designed, created, published, and marketed.  All I had to do was write the manuscript and send it to her, and she and her team at Merrimack Media created the book and brought it into the world.  Three things I particularly like about working with her: She does everything with enthusiasm, courtesy, and grace; she’s totally straight and reasonable about money; and she responds to e-mails and phone calls within the day, often within the hour.   I’d recommend Merrimack Media to anybody looking for a publisher.”
