“Victoria Twead and her team at Ant Press have done a wonderful job compiling my new book into both paperback and eBook formats. Victoria was a delight to deal with and the service Ant Press offers is first class. A BIG Thank You!”

“I hired Victoria Twead to format my manuscript for paperback and Kindle and she was absolutely knowledgeable, creative, quick, kind and affordable! I highly recommend her!”

Astrid Arlen,

“Victoria Twead of Ant Press has just formatted, and helped me publish, my sixth children’s book, Braith the Basset. She is quick, very fast in her work. People tell me how long it takes other publishing houses to format their books. This is one of the main reasons I always use Victoria. Her speed is phenomenal, as is her availability. She is always there for me, calm and collected, and very creative in her ideas to help me produce a stunning book. Another reason I like Ant Press—as busy as I understand they are—is that, even so, I’m always made to feel as if I’m their only client!”

“For a novice author like me, Jacky has been an absolutely superb coach and advisor in both editing my final manuscript and guiding me through the process of getting it online and into print. She clearly has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the world of publishing and uses it to help her authors navigate their way to the final product. Both Jacky and Ant Press have been professional and supportive throughout. I would highly recommend them.”

“Ant Press was the best choice for me, with the ideas and expertise to turn my draft words into something much better, quickly and with no fuss. Victoria and her team know exactly what to do and when, and come highly recommended.”

“I am extremely pleased with the service that I have received from Ant Press with formatting my very first book. I appreciate the assistance and the clear communication to make my manuscript come to life. The butterfly design used for my scene breaks were the perfect addition to complete my book.”

“Nothing could be better than to have my favorite memoir writer guide me through the process of telling my story. Thank you, Victoria, for helping me make Windmills to Submarines: Memories of a Small Town Texas Kid 1938-1958 a reality.
Ant Press makes everything possible.

“Thank you to the Ant press team for guiding me towards publication in an efficient, friendly and professional way. From the outset, I was confident I’d made the right choice for my award-winning memoir, Bombs and Bougainvillea. Jacky’s attention to detail, suggestions and interest in the subject went above and beyond, and I loved Victoria’s formatting suggestions and skills. The team created a beautiful cover and I could not be happier with the experience. The book shot up to No 1 in Amazon charts within days of publication. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Ant press again, and would highly recommend them. Thanks to all for making this dream come true.”

“Victoria Twead was fantastic, and I can highly recommend Ant Press to help you self-publish. Victoria was professional, patient, and knowledgeable; and she did a fabulous job formatting both the kindle and paperback versions of my book. I just had to set up a kdp account and upload and Victoria held my hand all the way, which, as a first-timer author, was very reassuring! She also came up with some great ideas, including using one of my own paintings as a chapter header all the way through the book, which looks brilliant.
I am delighted with my finished book, it looks polished and refined, and Victoria’s infallible support and endless enthusiasm gave me the confidence to launch my book with pride.”

“Ant Press was amazing. They took care of everything. They were professional, very helpful with suggestions (that improved the book considerably) and responded to my emails very quickly. As someone whose computer skills are on a par with the morris dancing skills of a camel, it was a source of great relief to have Ant Press at my side at every step. I would definitely use them again.”

John Redmond

“I cannot think of anyone I’d prefer to work with than Victoria Twead and AntPress. She helped me through every step of the way with the formatting necessary for me to self-publish both a print paperback and a kindle version of my book. She seemed to intuit what I needed before I could even think what it was I needed. She is a dream to work with, handling all my inexperience with grace, alacrity, and complete knowledge of the publishing world. She also has a good helping of humour and patience; very necessary when dealing with a first-time-publishing writer. All of this was done for a reasonable fee. I shall definitely hope to work with her on my next books, and I cannot praise or recommend AntPress highly enough.”

“If you are lucky enough to publish with Ant Press, you are very lucky indeed. Victoria Twead and Jacky Donovan provided me with a full-on professional publishing effort and they did it with kindness, patience and a professionalism rarely seen. Jacky had an exquisite sense of my voice and her editorial expertise resulted in a book that captured the true feel and sense of my memoir. Her communications were always timely and on point and her unfailing good humor and encouragement helped me achieve my long held dream of publishing, Tell Me About It, the story of my clinical career.  Ant Press embodies the sayingTeamwork makes the dream work.”

“Victoria Twead of Ant Press walked me through every step of the way to reach professional standards for publishing my book “Crowning: True Stories of Birthing and Women in Nepal” (2019). Her personal knowledge, courteous manner, and meticulous attention to detail were some of her outstanding characteristics. Her patience and experience with formatting the book were blessings indeed. She had answers for me as an inexperienced, non-tech savvy person — responses and guidance that made the whole process easy.
Victoria and Ant Press have my Highest Recommendation.”

Geeta Pfau, Ph.D.

“I was delighted with the editing and publishing work done by Jacky Donavan and Ant Press on my children’s books.  Jacky made so much difference to the presentation of the books and was able to explain everything to me as we went along.  I am not technical or computer minded and could never have achieved all this for myself.  It was great to not only receive the necessary services, but so much advice on promoting the books as well.  I cannot recommend Ant Press highly enough; lovely people and a very professional service.”

I want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to you Victoria, and Ant Press, for all the help and suggestions given to me while bringing my book to life.
You made the process so smooth, fast, and effortless with your personal and friendly, no-nonsense, attention that I felt like I was your only author. No matter how stupid I thought some of my questions were, you always answered in an easy way for my senior brain to understand!

Ant Press were the publishers of my first two books.  Being a complete newcomer to the publishing world, I was overawed by the amount of help, encouragement and guidance offered by Victoria Twead.  Both of my books have reached Amazon’s No.1 position in their category, which I am sure would not have happened without the help of Ant Press.  By my third book, I was ready to ‘go solo’ but still used the incredibly professional services of Ant Press for formatting.  
I can highly recommend Ant Press to any writer, be they complete novices or established authors.  To say that Victoria Twead goes above and beyond the call of duty in helping her authors is an immense understatement.
Ant Press ROCKS!
