Rosemary Hanrahan Edwards, whose book When Dreams Touch Received High Praise the 22nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards
Here is some of what the judge had to say:
“This was a heart wrenching story that still manages to capture you, inspire you, and leave you with a smile. . . . The author’s voice is smooth and professional and she has a way with words that will pull you in and entertain you. . . . In fact, I found it really hard to part with. I’m very impressed with the skill here. . . . All in all a wonderful read that I highly recommend.”
—Judge, 22nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards
In addition to great commentary from the judge, the book also received a 5/5 for Production Quality and Cover Design, and a 5/5 for Character Appeal and Development. Congratulations, Rosemary!

Phyllis R. Brown, recently received a fantastic endorsement for her book, Help Me! I’m Slipping, from Patricia White, Memories From My Life Blog and Founder, PostersAsTherapy.com
“Phyllis Brown did not sit idly by as her husband’s dementia deepened. Using every opportunity along with her creative resourcefulness she helped her husband to enjoy life to its fullest, adjusting to his condition, for as long as he lived. She shares freely what worked for them in the form of strategies and tips along with suggested activities. If asked to recommend one book as a resource to caregivers, it would be Phyllis Brown’s book.” ~Patricia White, Memories From My Life Blog, Founder, PostersAsTherapy.com http://memoriesfrommylife.wordpress.com/

Gina Tempesta and her upcoming book, Boston’s Other Green Monster: A Story about the Big Dig. Please read this article written by Melrose Wicked Local, “Melrosian pens Big Dig book for little readers.”

We are thrilled to share that Dare Bone’s Big Break by Dr. Gleeson Rebello and Jamie Harisiades was featured on NECN, one of the leading news stations in Massachusetts and New England!
Rebello said, “The reason I wrote it was to raise the bar in terms of how kids understand everyday medical practice. If this kind of knowledge was part of a child’s consciousness, like how they would understand construction. So why not understand what we do as surgeons?”
You can watch the full video of the story here.
Lastly, we were so happy to be featured in The Patriot Ledger earlier this year.
“The East Bridgewater-based virtual company works with both new and seasoned writers – from doctors and entrepreneurs to stay-at-home moms. Akoury-Ross says it offers a cost-effective one-on-one approach to publishing.”
