Creating a Story Teller Version of your Children's Book

Finding a way to stand out among the saturated market of children’s books authors can be a challenge. I am a firm believer that the old face to face approach when marketing to children works best.

I found Steuben Press through an internet search for book printers and I could not have been more pleased with the print work they did on my book, "128 Tips to Make You a More Effective Leader." The personal service from Adam and Jamie made it a seamless, stress-free process from start to finish and the quality and value was exceptional. I am a raving fan! I look forward to doing business with ou again!
