Feedback from a happy customer, author Davide A. Cottone: I have been writing novels, short stories, plays, musicals and poetry for just on fifty years and in order to avoid the angst of trying to find a traditional publisher I have always self-published my work which includes four novels, and two books of poetry. Now because age ‘doth weary me’ and the technology ‘condemn’, I decided with my last book Shriek: an absurd novel to hand it over to Carolyn Martinez at Hawkeye Publishing. Carolyn has enabled my book to be printed on demand so that I no longer need to hold loads of books while I promote and try to sell them. As well, she has listed it so that readers can choose to order the eBook if they so desire. The great joy of working with Carolyn is that she not only gets the job done and gets it done correctly she also follows things through if there are problems and offers suggestions and other options for getting my work out there. If you just want to be a writer and not have to suffer the ‘slings and arrows’ of getting your work published by traditional publishers then I commend Carolyn Martinez at Hawkeye Publishing most highly.

Hawkeye Publishing is not a glamour publisher – we offer professional services that aide self-publishers to ensure they are publishing quality work. If your work contains errors or is poorly written, we cannot assist you with production services, unless you secure us for a professional edit prior to publishing. We encourage all self-publishing authors to have their work professionally edited. The Australian Society of Editors (of which Carolyn Martinez is a member) has an excellent database of available editors and proofreaders.
Even though Carolyn is an editor herself, she still secures a professional editor on her own self-published books. She believes every book needs an author and an editor for highest quality.
