“Stephanie Chandler and her team at Authority Publishing are dedicated professionals. From the signing of the contract to the completion of my two books, Fire Up Your Life! and Fire Up Your Intuition!, I was kept in the loop, offered valuable suggestions and communicated to on a regular basis with timely follow up. The layout and design of my book covers were creative, eye-catching, and polished. The quality of the editing was top-notch. I did extensive research for a self-publishing company and I give Authority Publishing an A+ rating. I will be releasing two additional books in my series with them in 2012.”
– Donna Hartley, author of Fire Up Your Life! and Fire Up Your Intuition!
“As a first time author, Authority Publishing helped guide me through the process of publishing a book.They made the process smooth and easy, and removed all the frustration that typically comes with publishing a book. My book has now become a great addition to marketing my business and booking speaking engagements.”
– Stanley Leong, author of The Six Principles of Successful Investors
“I was so excited when I completed the manuscript for my memoir. I had spent many hours toiling over the computer trying to find exactly the right words to tell my story. The next step—publishing. I asked around for information, advice and guidance and the overwhelming sentiment I got was that self-publishing was nothing short of a nightmare. I was told I would never get what I envisioned, I would pay way too much for it, and in the end, only be disappointed. This left me intimidated and scared to start the process. But when I found Stephanie Chandler online, I found none of the horror stories to be true with Authority Publishing. Stephanie talked to me personally several times to help me through the process and she and her staff were professional, accommodating and punctual. She gave me an outline and timeline that Authority Publishing stuck to every step of the way. There were no hidden costs and I knew exactly what was expected of every party involved and we not only stayed on schedule, we beat our proposed deadline by a good two weeks!
I loved working with Stephanie and my project manager, Amberly. Both listened to what I wanted and needed out of my project and the end result is just fabulous. I have received so many compliments that I couldn’t be happier! If you have a self-publishing project and are terrified of the process, don’t be. Contact Authority Publishing for and exceptional process and product.”

“I happened to hear a presentation by Authority Publishing’s CEO, Stephanie Chandler, when I was ready to publish my first book, Right Now Is Perfect. I met with her to determine if my book project would be a good fit for her company. I knew from her presentation that Stephanie was aware of the latest publishing options and I decided to trust my manuscript with her company. That was one of the best decisions I could have made.
This was my first book and so I didn’t know all the things that would be involved. Stephanie and her staff guided me through the many decisions I needed to make with honesty and professionalism. I had a tight deadline to publish before Christmas and we managed it. At every turn, I felt I was getting the best value for my money. It was a pleasure working with the Authority Publishing team!”
– Carol Ryan, author of Right Now is Perfect: A Romance, An Adventure, The Unexpected Thereafter
“As a new author, it was wonderful to work with such a professional company as Authority Publishing. Amberly and Stephanie answered my questions and helped me along every step of the way. I am very pleased with the way the book turned out and would not hesitate to do it all over again.”
– Marie de Haan, author of Cancer is a Funny Thing
“Authority Publishing brought a whole new level to my book marketing. I received very specific direction on how to build my online platform and I have increased online sales nationally and opened up the international market for my book. I’m excited to continue to implement the valuable ideas I received and see my sales increase. I’m determined to get my book out there to serve others and Authority Publishing is the springboard I needed!”

“Thanks to you and your team for helping me get my first cookbook published. I initially was looking at online publishing outfits but quickly realized (when they didn’t call me back) that I probably wasn’t going to get the level of service that I needed. Also, while the pricing seemed less expensive online, I realized that adding on everything that I was looking for would have increased the costs quickly. If I had gone with an online company, it would have been a more “do-it-yourself” process, adding frustration, and time (my time- I don’t have a lot of free time and publication time). I also wasn’t comfortable sending money into an online “black hole” without personal contact.
My experience with Authority Publishing was very positive. Everything was handled professionally and promptly keeping the publication on deadline. The layout and cover are beautiful and I was impressed by how intuitive your team was at interpreting my desires. I am very impressed and hope to work with you and your team again in the near future.”
– Peggie King, author of Fit Food for Foodies
“After working on writing a book for fourteen years, doing potentially excessive research, and becoming overwhelmed at the publishing options available on the internet, I attended the San Francisco Writers Conference, where Authority Publishing owner Stephanie Chandler was a speaker. Not only was she a speaker and panelist, she knew the correct people—the conference organizers, the keynote speakers, and the agents…seemingly everybody. Not only did she know them, but many of them referred attendees to Stephanie and her work. She literally wrote the book on internet marketing for authors…
Two months later I was holding “my book”, Earn It: Empower Yourself for Love, in my hands—actually I was holding 1,200 of them! Despite all of the research I had done, Authority Publishing made the book much better. Twelve people (including an English instructor with a master’s degree in English) had edited my book but A.P. editor, Amberly Finarelli, corrected the consistent errors I had made throughout the book. Having been a professional salesman for over twenty years, I had developed what I thought was an effective logo for the book cover, yet Authority Publishing created a logo and book cover that better defined the book’s contents and better represented its message. The team at Authority Publishing worked like a finely tuned machine to maximize this book’s potential. I could have had the book published elsewhere, but it wouldn’t be as well prepared for the world without the help of Authority Publishing. What a powerful team!”
– Bob Quinlan, author of Earn It: Empower Yourself for Love
“Working with Stephanie was a fantastic experience. As a first time author, she gave me the confidence knowing that I was in good hands. She knows her space, the business of books and the tricks of trade that will help any new comer make the best out of this challenging environment. The fact that she also knows a lot about sales and salesmanship, was tremendously useful in her teaching me how to sell my book across multiple fronts, leveraging my own website, the newer social media outlets, speaking engagements as well as traditional methods. What can I say, giver her a call and go finish your book!”
– Paul D’Souza, author of The Market Has Changed, Have You? Sales Strategies that Work
“I first met Stephanie Chandler in May 2007 when she made a suggestion to me that I wrote a book about my professional craft as a business broker. In simple but eloquent terms, Stephanie explained the process, left me a copy of her book – From Entrepreneur to Infopreneur and her willingness to help any way she could. From that one idea I have grown to four books but none of this would have been possible without Stephanie’s suggestion, proven knowledge and process to make it happen and being readily available to fill my knowledge gaps. I‘ve thrown many questions at Stephanie over the years and not only does she have the answer but always the best way to do it. If you want to add a new dimension to your business and do it in the shortest time possible, Stephanie will initially stimulate and challenge you but partner with you to make it happen; all with the highest standard. I would recommend Stephanie and her processes to anyone planning on writing their own book and wants to get it done as quickly and at the highest standard possible.”
