I haven't provided specific information on *his* website, but you can find out all you need to know at http://www.booklocker.com.

I recently completed the publishing process with Booklocker.com. As a first time author I needed guidance and an opportunity to build my own confidence. I know, if I am going to go outside of traditional publishing roots, I will ultimately be the one who will have to market the book I have written.

So, my choice to go with Richard and Angela Hoy was simple; they are not affraid to share with EVERYONE what it takes to create a saleable product that will help you succeed. They are a ready team or staff of advisors available to answer important questions.

When you visit their site www.booklocker.com you will first experience its simplicity. Then, before you know it, you are immersed in a sea of invaluable information that will HELP YOU market your book. If you are a first time author, this experience you WILL NOT find with the big three POD companies. In fact, such help is either absent or for FOR SALE.

I have come to understand, through Richard and Ang Hoy, writing and getting your book between the covers is pretty darn easy. However, writing and getting your book between the covers is a much different story than the frighten thought of the sales and marketing of your book online or to the brick and mortar stores in town and around the country. It is here where Richard's invaluable background with online sales and Angela's vision and perspective for what should be written and understood to sell a book appears on their site. Again, this kind of cooperation from the larger PODs is either absent or FOR SALE.

The sales and marketing reality in publishing and selling your book during a time when "The Boomers" are all writing is going to be a tough row to hoe. The more information you have as a first time author is best for you.

With that said, both business models and companies want you to succeed. Choose carefully, thoughtfully, and strategically what fits your need. If you need a small fuel efficient vehicle and your looking at a gas guzzler in times like these...THINK Booklocker.com!

I felt far more comfortable with Booklocker.com because I was spending far fewer dollars for the same publishing services while at the same time I was feeling more confident knowing something about what it was I was doing.

And that, for me, is what life and writing a book is all about; learning about how great it feels when you accomplish a goal (like writing a book) on your own, all alone, all by yourself with a little help from your friends.

Thanks Richard and Angela.....

We're POD publishers, also. We operate much the way you do - with a focus on helping authors create a truly professional product they can be proud of. Much of our work is in the upfront work - coaching and editing and cover design, and building authors blogs.

In a column I write at BeneaththeCover.com , I often recommend Booklocker. I think you are one of the best POD companies online. I wish I'd used you for my book, four years ago. But, I didn't. And, it inspired me to open up a POD firm of my own.

So, all in all, things work out. I will still recommend Booklocker - because I think you do it right.
