I did a lot of research before making a decision to use EA publishing. I talked to several people, did comparison reviews, and looked at industry watchdog ratings. I choose EA publishing because I felt they solidly stood on integrity; they had a very good reputation in the industry and the package I choose was a fair price. My experience with the team I was assigned was smooth. There are always things to learn and questions to be answered. Team members always got back to me and answered questions and explained the process. My project leader was extremely helpful. The cover designer worked with my ideas and created a cover that I am excited about. All-in-all, the process and the team resulted in a very good first experience in the publishing world. I now have a book and a testimony I am proud of!
I was fortunate enough to meet Cheri at a writers conference two years ago. At that time, I knew very little about publishing the book I had written while going through an extremely difficult time in my life. While at the conference, I met several publishers but they didn't give me the encouragement I was hoping for. Nevertheless, when I sat down at Cheri's table, and began to tell her about my book, she immediately gave me the hope and encouragement I needed! She was quick to let me know that her publishing company would help me every step of the way, from the beginning to the end! I can truly say that EA Books Publishing made the process easy and professional. I would recommend this publishing company to anyone who has a dream to see the work of their hands get into the hands of others. I knew that my book was a God breathed word that many suffering parents with prodigals desperately needed to hear. With that being said, I want to shout out a BIG "Thank you," to Cheri, and ALL of the staff members that made my dream become a reality!
EABooks Publishing was a joy to work with. All along the way, they connected me with the right editor, the right illustrator, and the right book formatter. Their attention to their clients was as thorough as their attention to detail (just the combination to serve a perfectionist like me). Gracious and patient with each of my change requests, the EABooks staff of problem-solving gurus. I’m proud to have my book appear on their list of successful projects.
I knew God was up to something the moment I met Cheri Cowell. I thank God for leading me to EABooks. I absolutely loved the experience and the privilege of working with each of them. Thank you, Peter Lundell, Kristen Veldhuis, Dawn Staymates, Tanya Shanley, and Bob Ousnamer for your professionalism, patience, and compassion. Through you God made Finally Free: Breaking the Bonds of Depression Without Drugs a reality. It was a blessing and a joy to work with you.
Numerous reflections interspersed throughout the letters, a number of blocked quotes, and extensive referencing and endnotes could make for a reading nightmare if not intelligibly organized. These potential problems were all resolved via the meticulous and skillful formatting expertise at EABooks Publishing. The helpful emails and conversations with Susan and Bob put a finishing touch on another memorable experience with the staff at EABooks Publishing.
The EABooks Publishing team is truly remarkable, not only because of their extensive knowledge and professionalism in the publishing field but because of their patience and sensitivity to my needs as an aspiring author. Certainly, they have exceeded my expectations. Indeed, it became evident to me that the gracious owner of the publishing company, Cheri Cowell, and her talented team placed as much emphasis on facilitating the publishing process, as they placed on the finished product quality of EABooks. They were always patient, personable and helpful during the publishing process. I am deeply grateful to the phenomenal team of EABooks Publishing, comprising of Cheri, Kristen, and Tanya who have contributed so graciously to the publishing process that propelled my book across the finish line. By God’s grace, I hope to work with them again on my next book.
Working with EABooks Publishing has been a rewarding experience. At every step, the helpful professionals kept the work moving forward and apprised me as to what came next. They took the stress out of the process and helped bring my dream of publishing this book to fruition. EABooks Publishing is excellent!

Thanks to all the team members at EA Books for their great job of assisting authors to express heart-felt stories in book form. With their assistance, authors can further their ministry to encourage, teach, and inspire a hurting world that there is hope and help from the one who loves us more than we could ever imagine – Jesus Christ!

EABooks Publishing transformed the emotion-filled poems on suicide, grief, and hope into a work of art, inside and out. Natalie edited my poetry book with tenderness and respect while enhancing the poems with her expert eye for cadence and meaning. I have received many compliments on the book cover, created by their talented artist Amanda. Cheri stepped in where needed, to encourage and challenge me and I love the final product! As a first time author, I recommend EABooks to help navigate the publishing process.
I would like to thank Cheri Cowell and her team at EABooks Publishing, for a Wonderful experience in the publishing process of my first children's book, The Adventures of Sleepy Man. I also want to thank Cheri for working with me through my time of illness, I appreciate you. I highly recommend EABooks Publishing for your publishing needs.

After many months of wading through a sea confusion in the self-publishing world I, fortunately, came across EABooks Publishing. I was immediately greeted with a friendliness and knowledge of the industry that made me, for the first time, feel at home in this new and competitive world of publishing. With professionalism, patience, and knowledge I was guided by Cheri Cowell and the team at EABooks through a world that was entirely strange and new to me. In no time at all, I began to feel like I could do this thing if I teamed up with EA Books! Moreover, with the financial package that I was presented with, I could now see a way to perhaps make my writing work for me as well. In short order, I was presented with a beautiful cover and website designed by Bob Ousnamer that met and exceeded my expectations. I was given excellent marketing guidance by Michelle Booth. The interior book formatting by Dawn Staymates is superb. As a result, my book, The Assault On Freedom In America, is a fine example of the professionalism and product quality of EABooks. If you are reading this, then your search is over. Choose EABooks, I highly recommend them.
Mac Taylor, The Assault On Freedom In America
After many months of feeling very lost in a maze of different publishing paths, I happily discovered EABooks Publishing at one of Cheri Cowell’s conference presentations. Shortly thereafter she had me on a publishing plan that quickly led to a published picture book I can promote with pride. The EABooks team exceeded my expectations at all stages of production. It was an enjoyable process, and I look forward to working with this awesome team again someday soon!
As a new author in the dizzying world of self-publishing, I can't think of a better company than EA Books Publishing to support you, hold your hand, and aid you through this maze of paperwork and detail. No way can a newbie understand the nuances of the publishing business. I'd definitely recommend Cheri Cowell and her group of professionals if you are considering going the avenue of self-publishing. Hugs to them all.
Reba Rhyne, Butterfield Station.
"EA Books has been a pleasure to deal with. From the beginning conversations with Cheri Cowell to the illustrations by Amber Waters and finally to the production stage with Kristen Veldhuis, everyone at EA Books was very helpful and accommodating. The entire production process is smooth and efficient and the end result is something I am very proud of. Thanks again to everyone at EA Books. I highly recommend EA Books to any aspiring author or seasoned professional. Keep up the stellar work!"
Can the Jewish author of a Jewish romantic novel have a successful business relationship with a publishing company that specializes in Christian-centered publications? The answer is a resounding YES!
My name is Edward M. Krauss, author of Solomon The Accountant, a story that takes place in a middle-class Jewish neighborhood in Toledo, Ohio in 1950. The book had a short publication history several years ago with a company that went out of business soon after STA was first published. After a pause of those years I decided to try again. I discovered EABooks Publishing online and contacted them. I expressed my concern about their focus, their ability to successfully serve me, given the nature of the novel. They assured me that they could work effectively with me to produce and market my work.
All has been true. Everyone associated with bringing my novel to market has been prompt, supportive, helpful, and creative. I am pleased to strongly endorse EABooks Publishing.
By the way, if you like gentle, warm-hearted, character-driven love stories, may I please recommend you read Solomon The Accountant.

A great big thank you to Cheri Cowell, Kristen Veldhuis, Jessie Collins, and Bob Ousnamer from EA Books. You were professional, patient, and encouraging from start to finish. I never felt stuck in the process because of the immediate response from the team. I have highly recommended you to several friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so.
Thanks so much to the awesome team at EABooks! You have made my dream of publishing a children’s book come true. They were patient with me trying to get things just right and offered suggestions that made the process a pleasure. So thrilled to finally see it in print and happy to share it with the world because of their wisdom and expertise in book creation! Thanks, Cheri, Debbie, Bob, and Kristen!
Dr. Douglas Christie
I would like to say that EABooks Publishing is one of the best ways to get a book published. I learned a lot with them. EABooks worked with me all along the way from the cover to the inside text. It is quite a learning curve, but it will make the next one a whole lot easier. It has been a pleasure to work with Cheri, Kristen, Bob, and Dawn. I believe that God led me to them and I plan to use them again for my next book. They know the ins and outs of the book business. If you do not want to do it yourself, or have tried, EABooks Publishing is the way to go. You write and they will help get it published. Thanks a whole lot!.
Once again this team has been a true blessing to work with! I am so very grateful and thankful for the whole staff at EABoooks.
They truly have a deep desire to serve. They are very professional and caring, and show the Father's heart in everything they do. They really came together to work with me, guide me, support me and encourage me during the entire process. And a big thank you to Bob Ousnamer who once again worked many long hours with me.
I highly recommend them! A BIG thank you to each of you and may God bless you abundantly! <3

My book Ponderisms has just been released
and I can honestly say that eabookspjublishing is a fastastic company that has given me so much help in getting to my finished product. They are very easy to work with and make it so easy for a novice to navigate the murky waters of the publishing business. Thank you for making my 'dream come true."
God has been faithful throughout my winding journey to bring my first book to completion. My testimony serves as my personal thanks and appreciation to EABooks Publishing for making my dream, to become a published author, a reality. Cheri Cowell and her team of experts did such amazing work on getting my book’s cover designed and formatted, as well as outlining the interior and the exterior. They were professional and persistent in handling every step, from beginning to end. I have learned and gained a great deal of experience from their work, and no words can express the gratitude I feel towards them in helping me make this dream come true.
My Experience with EABooks Publishing has been a good one. I wanted to self-publish my child's book: Hungry Foxes on Our Hillside because I was unsure which version would please the most people. Some adults loved it just like it was, others wanted it to be less focused on the seagull and more on the foxes. When a group of writers critiqued it at a conference, they clearly preferred the softer version. EAPublishing was willing to replace both pictures and verses even though the finished book had already been sent to me for approval. The illustrator, Amber Waters, was willing to redo some of the pictures at the last minute. All the personnel who worked with me were very helpful, easy to work with, and readily responded to my concerns.

I learned of
EABooks Publishing through a radio interview on one of my favorite programs (I work 4 Him!) I had been looking for a new publisher and when I heard the interview with Cheri Cowell I knew God had led me to the right place! In a world of noisy sales pitches and over-priced services Cheri's God-centered business ethics inspired me and made me feel safe. I needed people I could trust and who had good experience. I know of people who have put their own books on CreateSpace but I could see that I'm just not one of those people. I work full-time and I need to spend my writing time writing-not figuring out how to get it published. They were patient and kind with me through the process and I am pleased with the outcome of my book. Also, I am looking forward to receiving more guidance and tips on marketing and I look forward to creating more books with EABooks Publishing.May The Lord Bless You Richly, April M. Whitt
When the Lord infused me with the with the passion to write my book, Aria, I knew it had to be exactly as I intended for the reader. It was very important to me to have control over this story because of its sensitive and heartfelt content. A friend of mine mentioned EA Books Publishing. Also an author, she shared her experience with their team. I contacted Cheri Cowell, and after our conversation I made the decision to work with them. I’m an evangelist, but I knew absolutely nothing about publishing. They were wonderful and encouraging. They were very patient with some unexpected last minute changes. The finished book looks wonderful. Christian bookstores are asking to carry Aria, and the reviews are amazing. Many thanks to all of those who helped me birth "my baby.” It was indeed a labor of love. I highly recommend EABooks Publishing. They are a Christian publishing
company you can trust.Penny Lea
EA Books was an answer to prayer. To finally make my dream a reality. Not only is Cheri Cowell a dear friend, but her staff is a plus.
Kristen was such a dear and had such patience to continually guide me along on this journey… And Lori Copeland and her husband John were the icing on the cake to create my beautiful cover and help me learn how to get the word out! What a great team to get your word out too.Del Bates
I recommend EABooks Publishing to subsidy-publishing writers who don’t have the money to pay for high end, often over-priced companies. Do be ready and willing to tell EA staff clearly what you want regarding design and layout, and be willing to work with them on it. The folks at EABooks are great to work with, and they’re honest. You won’t get cheated, and they’ll make sure you’re happy with your book publication.
EABooks has published my second book and I was very pleased with their professional skills and their willingness to help me at every turn. This starts with their illustrator that works on my book each day for hours at a time, Amber Waters, and that goes all the way to the president of the company, Cheri Cowell and includes everyone in between. There is a new, very experienced, addition to the staff, Janis Whipple. From day one her presence was a positive addition to the team. Everyone at EABooks is there to make your book a success
Philip Marcu, Author of Mighty Marlow
As a writer, I'm accustomed to sitting by myself and writing. That's the life of a writer. But working with the fine people at EABooks Publishing, I'm never alone. These are professional people that want to help you succeed and it'snot just one or two people; it's EVERYBODY in the company. It starts with the hands-on president who is a role model for all and it goes to everyone who takes their job seriously. The illustrator of my comics, Amber Waters, took my words and made them come alive. I told Amber that her pictures helped me better understand my story and my characters. Until I saw her pictures all I was able to see were words and names. When she finished the first comic book she said to me, "Here is your baby." I am proud to work with such a fine group of professionals.
As authors we realize that putting our words on paper is only the beginning of getting our message to potential readers. The rest is in the hands of those who edit and create a clean copy for others to have an enjoyable experience when reading. We loved working with EABooks publishing because they not only met with us personally to catch our vision, but their amazing team came together to get things done with a professional look, in a timely manner. Thank you, EABooks for delivering our message to readers.
Joe and Michelle Williams, co-authors
I appreciate EABooks team for extending themselves beyond the limits of the agreement. They addressed concerns in a timely manner. I cannot underscore the diligence of the team in the conveying of the vision.The graphic designer worked hard in capturing the right image. I am particularly grateful to Cheri who demonstrated kindness and patience.
My experience with EABooks Publishing was short of miraculous. Even though I had to pull back from the process that we had started together, they graciously and GENEROUSLY kept our old agreement making possible for me to bring my life's love story to life — my dream came true! This shows people with truly great hearts. They were careful, efficient and just the best I could have found! Thank you all so much!!! From the bottom of my heart.
EABooks has taken me from a daydreaming scribbler to a published author. The team helped me with personal attention from every aspect; grand design, specific page layout, line by line editing, audience outreach. I would not only recommend their services to new authors everywhere, but would encouraged established authors to go back to the beginning to see what they've missed. I'm lining up future projects for EAbooks to complete knowing they will be completed professionally and lovingly by a talented and dedicated staff.
My deepest thanks to the entire EABooks team for making my God inspired dream a reality! The team really came together to work with me, guide me, support me and encourage me during the entire process. And a big thank you to Bob Ousnamer who worked many long hours with me.
EABooks has helped turn my dream into a reality. Their professional management provided interaction at every step of the publishing process. I'm pleased as can be with the final product. My excitement level is high. I'm grateful for everything they've done with Flood. A special shout out goes to Bob for the cover design and website. Amazing. Check it out for yourself: www.GetOnTheArk.com. Cheri Cowell, Roxanne and Cheryl, thank you as well. God bless you all.
As a first time author, EABooks has made the process so easy and exciting. Everyone has their job to do and does it with expertise. I had lots of questions and they got right back to me and answered them. They are prepared and know all aspects of publishing. They guided me along to make my dream of Merry Mouse become a reality. Look at my website--I think it is beautiful. And the illustrations! A hearty “thank you” and "God Bless each and every one in the process of being "God's Disciples".
Patricia C. Galbreath, Author
My relationship with EABooks began several months ago with a decision to publish my two out-of-print books. WhenTouching the Clouds: True Stories to Strengthen Your Faith needed a different cover, I was delighted with the new graphic design.
My second book, See You Later, Jeffrey, kept the original cover, but I updated the author page for both books. The EABooks team took me step by step through the process of preparation for Print on Demand and EBook formatting and also included marketing tips. I could not have found a more caring and professional publisher for this task, and I am thrilled with the results. I highly recommend Cheri Cowell and her entire team at EABooksPublishing.
Fran Caffey Sandin
Our being referred to EABooks Publishing was a critical turning point in making the dream of For Teachers with Love come true. The EABooks staff accompanied me and my team expertly, pleasantly and painlessly into the new world of publishing, taking our manuscript step by step to publish as both a print-on-demand and e-book. Now our book is out there and people are reading it and enjoying it! We are tremendously grateful for this service, and have already recommended EABooks Publishing to others who are looking to get their manuscripts published.
Dr. Ora Zohar
I have written extensively (and will continue) about the importance of being a gentle witness. My heart breaks when I think about the people I know who will not even consider being introduced to Jesus due to the way they were approached. Some were judged. Some were preached at. Some were told they were not good enough. Some felt like they were on the wrong end of a sales presentation.
Other [publishers] tried to “sell” me on the benefits of their services and I’m sure some of them might produce a pretty good product. Only one problem. They just kept talking.
Before Cheri said a word about their services, she wanted to know about me! She wanted to know about my writing and where I was on my walk of faith! She wanted to see a sample of my work! She wanted to first get to know me as a person, not a prospect.
I was the one who had to bring up the cost of services. I was the one who said, “let’s do this!”
The beautiful part of this message is knowing that I’m done looking for a business publishing partner. I found mine!
"I have used EABooks for every single one of my three ebooks so far. I wouldn't dream of using anyone else, or even looking around to compare prices because I have never had one problem with their team. Everyone you deal with is professional, willing to go the extra mile with you, and your product will be exactly what you dreamed it would be. I highly recommend them!"
Deborah Lovett, Author of three EABOOKS!
"Cheri Cowell from EABooks guided me smoothly through the complicated process of formatting my book as an ebook, and did the actual digital formatting for an affordable price. She made the editing process easy and was quick to answer my emails about what I did not understand. Her explanations were clear and she got the job done in a remarkably short period of time. I recommend EABooks to any author who is considering publishing an ebook or audiobook."
Dr. David Thompson,
“You did a beautiful job! I am delighted with everything we talked about. What I asked, you did - - and you did it all so well. I began with the cover and looked at each page... just letting the overall impression sink in as far as pictures, placement. When I got to the last page and saw my colored picture in black and white I thought even that was nice; and I heaved a very contented sigh. I can't think of anything that could have been done better. Thank you again, so very much. May this product of our hands enter many homes and hearts and make an eternal difference in hundreds of lives. It's been a pleasure and privilege to have worked with you.”
Shirley McCoy, Author and Great-Grandmother
"My experience with EABooks was nothing short of outstanding. Cheri Cowell and Bob Ousnamer repeatedly went the extra mile to ensure that my two e-books were prepared with excellence, care, and professionalism. In the process, I discovered two people who have become not only my go-to source for e-book conversion, but also very special friends."
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, Novelist & Poet
I wanted to reissue To Live Each Moment, the memoir I wrote for our children about my treatment year for breast cancer when I was 33. The process was daunting. A friend convinced me to turn to EABooks. The staff was efficient and warm. I'm now considering turning to them to get my novel out as an e-book, rather than wait for my agent to find a publisher in this depressed industry. (P.S. Though my goal was to preserve To Live Each Moment for my family, Amazon sold 35 copies in the first two days and 10 readers in the Smashwords market downloaded a sample, hopefully to eventually purchase it. I'm sure sales will quickly diminish as I run out of FB friends, but it has been an awesome ride.)
