I am a new writer and did not know the first thing about publishing. Oh yes, I watched youtube and every other internet promptitude about publishing. When I contacted Bookfuel they really set my mind at ease. They were quick to respond and help me get my memoir into IngramSparks. I am so happy with my book. "A Petal From The Rose" I enjoyed and felt comfortable the way Lori and Connie guided me through the process. I can't say Thank You enough.

This was my second time around. Although I didn't feel that I received the same amount of treatment (attention) as last time, we were still able to get my project completed in a timely fashion and everyone I spoke with was courteous with their assistance. I'm happy with the final product and the transition from Book Fuel accounts to new user accounts.

This was my first time having a book published and everyone at BookFuel was very attentive and very helpful. I will use BookFuel again for the book I am now working on.

Before I knew about Bookfuel, I almost fell into traps by scam publishers more than once. On the other hand, Bookfuel staff are very honest people and they helped publishing my novel "The Grasp of the Empire".
I am very grateful for all of their services. They are 100% trustworthy
Review by Grundy1 year ago
Very good design and production, but horrible otherwise. Charged outrageous $15/month account maintenance and out of the blue shut down distribution of my book. They said mandatory transfer to KDP, Ingram, B & N, Kobo, etc. was a quick and easy process. VERY misleading and file transfers are complex and sometimes expensive ($100+ at Ingram). The only bright spot is Connie in author services. She’s tried to help me, but the relationship with BookFuel otherwise is unacceptable.

Bookfuel was the absolute best. Any questions I had (and I had plenty) were immediately answered and explained thoroughly. From the moment I signed my contract, all the way to the finished product, the service was always there for me. No problems whatsoever. I highly encourage anyone who is looking for publishing services to make Bookfuel their first and only stop.

Bookfuel really stood out from the rest. As a self published author they gave me the confidence I needed to proceed in my endeavors. They are excellent and very professional, book quality is perfect, and I will be doing business with them again!
Review by Wyokid1 year ago
Very helpful and professional. Completely satisfied with every aspect of my interaction with everyone that helped me through the publishing of my book. Have already recommended them to other authors. I got the feeling that they really care and want to offer their best,

Thank you for all of your help. Especially , your guidance and encourage-
ment so that I could bring my book out as an epub. Now I believe that
my new found hope and faith will enable me to experience success
with the 6th edition of my book.

I HAD THE BEST EXPERIENCE
Review by Natasja Horlor1 year ago
I had a Horrible experience with my first publisher, but with BookFuel it was the total opposite! They were very perfessional every step of the way. Always willing to talk to me and wanting to know my opinion. Always friendly and respectful. I will be doing my next book with them I’m sure!

My latest book, A Young Boy's Stories about Dixie, History of the Walter E. Peele Dixie Water Treatment Plant was a very special project for me, which began with Bookfuel in June of 2016. Then I was diagnosed with a very aggressive and extensive case of stage four neck and throat cancer that had also migrated into the surrounding lymph nodes. Now faced with a prognosis that was (and still is) uncertain as to my ability to survive this cancer, the book quickly became what is most likely my life's destiny, and the legacy that I leave behind. Being that the book has historical accounts that have never been written or published before. I am the last living person who knew about many of the events and personal stories discussed within the book, events that are a part of Fort Lauderdale Florida's early history.
So it became even more important that the book service (Bookfuel) that I had chosen to help guide me through the self publishing (design, publication, distribution, etc.) process be the best that money could buy. From start to finish everyone, Greg, Marci, Julia, Rebbecca, Lori, and Alyson (along with all of the others behind the scene that I have not named) were not only very professional, but also very understanding in the way they worked with me throughout the project. Patiently waiting during the times I was too ill to move forward with the progress, and then doing everything they could do to help expedite things when I felt good enough to continue working on the book. Together as a team, we were able to turn out a beautifully done book of history for the generations to come to read.
I cannot thank Bookfuel's staff enough for having gone above and beyond in their efforts, and giving me what I feel was more than my money's worth in service. I HIGHLY recommend Bookfuel to anyone needing someone to help them through the self publishing process!

Review by Laralsvp Chocula1 year ago
BookFuel is great for first time authors. I liked how they walked me through each step of process.
I really liked the book design part and how they took my ideas and made into reality. My book cover is AWESOME and tailored to me!
Thank you BookFuel for taking a crazy dream of mine and making it in into a book.

Bookfuel does a fine job. No complaints here. Thanks for your services, patients and kindness.
Review by Mazvangu Derrow1 year ago
" And on May 17, 2016, you sent BookFuel an e-mail that stated all errors had been corrected in the final version of the edit and you were “happy”. You subsequently signed off on the edit and we moved forward through the publication process."
Actually, I found MORE errors in the book after the initial publication. The errors were from the fourth round of editing, this included the free round because the second round was so messed up by your editor. If you want to try and talk your way out of that, I will start to copy and paste the emails.
The truth is that I listed errors that were supposed to be fixed and never were. I got a PDF back and didn't see the issues, but when I got the printed book they were still there.
Onto the fifth round of edits. I spent more money to fix what errors that Bookfuel failed to fix before, and not all of those were handled either.
At this point, I was just done with your company. I signed off on it because I didn't want to deal with Bookfuel ever again.
I was done giving your company money only to get terrible service.
My expectations were for your company to be professional and to not screw up my manuscript at every turn.
Assist me in any way? Sure, give me my money back. I got garbage service.
Review by TheLastKing Derrow1 year ago
Well, I must tell you that I do not normally respond to requests for reviews. In today’s world it seems we get asked to write reviews on everything! Is this not true? However, where the publisher Bookfuel is concerned, I felt compelled to submit my approval. I recently published my first book through Bookfuel and the phrase “going above and beyond applies to them. Thank you, Bookfuel! You will be my choice for subsequent writings and I’ve already been giving your good name to other perspective authors. You have my respect and my sincere thanks!
Review by Janeiro1 year ago
Let's just say they finished the printed product by the due date and it could be my fault for not checking the editors work. The ebook was final 3 months later which could have been lost in emails. And their website and process needs to be improved. You pay and get very little.

Review by Cintoi1 year ago
I highly recommend Book Fuel for self publishers.
I worked with them for six months on my book, The Triple Net Investor.
First of all it is incredible that they allow you to pay as you are going through the publishing process via the The Boost Program.
Secondly, it is a process. A very professional detailed organized process.
This is my first book. I am already working on the second one - that I plan to publish with Book Fuel. BTW - My book hit best-seller under Real Estate Investments and Real Estate sales on Amazon and I have yet to run a real marketing campaign.
