"Even though I have been publishing since the 1960s and have over a hundred titles under my belt, John Kremer knows more about publishing then just about anyone else - and is willing to share his knowledge and contacts with others for a reasonable price (sometimes for nothing). This website is a must for small publishers, especially those getting started who may not know which way to turn." - Timothy Beckley, president, Global Communications
