Comparing yours to other companies in my honest opinion I would use Blacktastic to publish my book...for these reasons...Other
publishing websites has a bar "About Us" to give some insight about the company which is good but has no info for me as a beginning
author.....for someone who wants to publish their first book other sites have very little info on what steps I need to take or the cost for
me to publish my book....to get the info for the cost alone I would have to go to several pages to find it. For most people who don,t
know that other publishing websites have sister companies that holds all that info because no where on the site tells where to go to get
the cost for you to publish your book....To me it's not very user friendly when you have to jump from bar to bar or even another site to
get the cost or any other info that I may need.....

Blacktastic has info from ISBN numbers to bar codes to suggestions to steps on what I need to do has an author to publish my book...I
don't have to go jumping around to find out the cost or what you have to offer me....you even have a link to go to Blacktastic
Marketing if someone decides to go through you to advertise, I don't have to click on a dozen different things to get what I need.....
Blacktastic is more friendly to use than others.

The one thing I like most is that you gave us a choice....I don't know if you realize what you did but you gave us a choice of what to
do....you list almost everything we need to do to publish our book..... What steps we need to take such as ISBN numbers, BARCODE
etc... and who to go through....you gave us that option to try to do it our selves or pay a fee to go through you ( for marketing ) and
in my opinion 90% of people would rather pay a fee because trust me it's confusing for some who has never published a book before.....
Going to your website there is no pressure, it's not confusing....it's simple and it's easy....you have done a great job on it

Hi TJ,

How do I get my manuscript ready? Put them all in a word doc and print? I'm not exactly sure but would love to be a part of this...really
bad! I admire you so much and want to follow in your footsteps. To do good to others through poems and I would like to write a book
about what happened to my son and why kids should say no to drugs, by the crowd they choose to associate themselves with, may
directly or indirectly alter their lives. And I would like to go around schools to tell his story to junior high or high school... That has been
another goal of mine too......

Talk to you soon,
Donna

This is a special thank you to a real brother man that I truly admire for his hard work ethics, his reliability when it comes to family and
friends, and what I really love about his over all character is that he inspires everyone that he comes into contact with. His dedication and
sacrifices are just a few more of his Humbling attributes. Twenty seven years of friendship, can't put a price on that. Thank you T.J. for
always having my back and never judging me. To have a book that's been published through Blacktastic Books is a dream come true.
Now my words will be here for ever for all to see. Much Love to you my brother.

Mr Antwine,

Thank you so much for thinking of Hope and wanting to include her in your new book. I know Hope will be very excited to see her
name in a book! We are pretty new to all of this, I was wondering if you would tell me about the publishing process. I know when we
share with our family they will be interested in knowing about it, and I’d like to be able to answer their questions! Also, I know that
grandparents, aunts and uncles will want to have a few copies. When the book is published, how will they be able to get a hold of their
own copies?
Thank you again for taking an interest in Hope, I am hoping that this experience will encourage her to write more and she will be
motivated to continue in submitting her poetry! I really think she has a talent with words, and I am so proud of her!!

As a new author, having much knowledge of content and commitment though little knowledge of the inner workings of publication, it
was a breath of fresh air to work with Blacktastic Books.  From beginning to end, I was astonished with the professionalism and
expedience of the staff.   Blacktastic Books has managed to create an experience like no other, keeping clients involved and providing
them with options to suit their every need at a non-exorbitant price. It is a relief to find a publishing company that walks through the
process with you step by step with no hidden disclosures or fees.  From paperbacks to hardbacks, Blacktastic Books has a variety of
publishing packages to satisfy all clientele as well as provides excellent options for marketing and promotions. The staff pride themselves
in keeping you abreast of the project along the way, providing you with explanations of services, accurate time frames and exceeding
their commitment of 100% customer satisfaction.  A Poet’s Handbag is my first book and I can say I could not have chosen a better
publisher.  Blacktastic Books has clearly raised the standards for other publishing companies.

I can't say enough about Blacktastic Books!  From the wise counsel and consultation to the enchanting art work, sketches, and book
cover design...one cannot ask for a better company to publish his or her book(s).  My overall experience was and STILL remains quite
positive and inspirational.  Will I work with Blacktastic Books on my next project?  YES!

Thank you Tajiye and Anna Marie for publishing and giving me the platform to release "Another Woman Inside of Me."

Harmony & Peace,

Carolyn Gaynor
