What our clients think of us …
As a business coach and sales trainer, I was busy with my clients but I wanted to finally finish writing my first book called Make Your Mondays Matter. I was so relieved when I met Sarah who said she could publish the book for me and take away all those headaches of self-publishing. Phew, what a relief! I was thrilled she could do this for me as that was the main thing stopping me. With her skills, passion and patience we have created something I’m very proud of as Sarah brought my ideas for my book to life.
Sarah and her team advised and formatted my book ready to print and publish. Sarah worked her magic to make it available on Amazon and created my ebook version for Kindle. Saving me so much time. And I’m thrilled to say within the first 3 months after it was first published, Make Your Mondays Matter won an award and I’m honoured to be a Finalist in the International Book Awards 2019 for Business: Sales Category.
If you’re looking to see your book in print, get in touch with Sarah and you can make it happen. A top team to work with. Thank you Sarah. Now, I’m off to plan the next one!
It was a pleasure to work with Sarah from Goldcrest Books in the publication of my first book, ‘Climb Your S.T.A.I.R.™ of Self-Confidence’. Sarah was a great source of knowledge and support throughout the process and worked tirelessly to ensure my book was published ahead of schedule within a tight time frame, bearing in mind the date of my book launch event. Sarah guided me through many aspects of creating my book and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. I would highly recommend speaking with her if you are thinking about writing your own book.
Professional, empathetic and technically savvy, Sarah Houldcroft is the perfect creative partner. Efficient, friendly, insightful and very cost effective. She has made a huge difference to my career as an independent author, and is now a highly valued member of a very special team.
The existence of my book owes much to my publisher, Sarah Houldcroft of Goldcrest Books, who showed me that it was possible for me to write my first book, and who kept me on track with her knowledge and experience.
As a publishing consultant, Sarah is knowledgeable and competent in the book-writing business! I came to Sarah as a complete novice in this field and she guided and nurtured my writing and publishing ambitions with professionalism and calmness. My book, Work Your Quirks, would not have seen the light of day without Goldcrest Books and of course Sarah at the helm. If you are looking for someone who has the patience of a saint, yet a strong will to coach you to focus on getting your book published, Sarah is the go-to person. She’s a #bookduola in my view — no contest.
As an indie author I have used Sarah Houldcroft’s services to enhance and advance my work. Ms Houldcroft has formatted my novels for kindle and paperback and has created mobi copies to send to reviewers. She has also successfully amended work which other, less professional author services, carried out for me. Ms Houldcroft has schedules my tweets for me on a daily basis and has designed and printed promotional materials for me and the indie collaborative group I’m part of. She can meet deadlines and her work is reasonably priced considering the quality of the finished article. I commend her services to you.
I don’t know how to thank you for an amazing session this morning, guiding me through the maze of what I need to think about and do to do justice to my book – all these seriously wonderful marketing ideas – from building a strong foundation with my website to how to do an exciting and fun book launch!
You more than exceeded my expectations and I can’t thank you enough.
I knew I had my book in me but the fact I had no idea how to get it into finished book format and published created a blocker to me doing anything. Over the time we spent together Sarah worked through all the really important info, tips and great advice/feedback that you really can’t do without if you want to be a published author. Her style and fun approach makes everything so enjoyable. She absolutely knows her stuff!
The interior looks wonderful I’m so thrilled, thank you for all your hard work and your patience. You’ve been an absolute pleasure to work with and so has Aimee, you make a great team.
This workshop is fabulous, full of valuable information. Writing a book no longer holds any fears, I actually feel excited by the thought. Thanks Sarah.
What a pleasure it is working with Sarah! As a published author, I’ve known Sarah for some time at the Leicester chapter of the Romantic Novelists Association, and she is always wonderfully helpful, supportive and so generous with her advice. She has helped me with revamping my website, updating and making revisions, setting up my newsletter via Mailchimp, and has now published my latest paperback through Goldcrest Books. I know I can always turn to Sarah when I need support about the print publishing process or about my website or IT issues. She is always there for me if I have any queries. She is efficient, knowledgeable, reassuring and delivers on time and to budget. I couldn’t ask for more!
I have known Sarah Houldcroft since Goldcrest Books published my debut fiction novel, The Caterpillar Girl, in 2016. Sarah’s expertise was invaluable every step of the way, from her editing and proofreading contacts, through to the formatting, printing and eventual publication of the book. It is great to see an independent publishing company thriving, and Sarah deserves every success. I would highly recommend Goldcrest’s services.
Today’s session was soooo useful. Thanks a bunch, Sarah.
