    "I have worked with Kevin Rhoades on three book projects in which I was involved as the editor or author. He is skilled, hardworking, charges reasonable prices, and in all senses a pleasure to work with. Perhaps the highest praise I can offer is to say that I intend to turn to him for another book project I currently have under way."

    - Jim Casada,
    Freelance Writer and Book Author

  • Quality Work

    "Kevin Rhoades did an exceptional job in the design and layout of my book, 'Neil Cost - Magic with Wood,' which was published by Long Cane Press. He did quality work, was easy to work with, excellent communications, fair and honest. I highly recommend Kevin for your next project."

    - Michael F. Marks,
    Author

  • Solid Reliability

    "I recommend Kevin Rhoades as a person of professional achievement, high integrity and solid reliability with strong managerial experience and specialized skills. I have had the opportunity to observe his style and skill. His abilities at planning and organization are exemplary. He has a knack for knowing when and how to delegate while keeping track of developments and staying focused on the big-picture items. I recommend Kevin Rhoades without reservation."

  • Gifted Graphic Designer

    “An accomplished writer and photographer in his own right, Kevin is also a gifted graphic designer. In 1992 I hired him to design my first book, “A Chukar Hunter’s Companion” and his work on that project contributed mightily to its success. I am now working on my second book and hope he will design it as well.”

    - Pat Wray,
    Freelance Writer and Book Author

  • Expert Service

    "Kevin Rhoades did a great job of shepherding my book "Billy Barnstorm" to print – well beyond what I've experienced with my seven other published books. And he has continued to promote the book, has converted it to e-book format and in all ways has provided wonderful expertise and service. Highly recommended."

    - Joel Vance,
    Author and Past President of Outdoor Writers Association of America

  • Layout Excellent

    “One word to describe the relationship with Kevin Rhoades was confidence in his work. Another was responsibility of follow-through when he took the job and promised a good outcome. Kevin is easy to work with by mail or phone, the book was well done, and the layout excellent. My book was well received with lots of favorable comments in large part due to excellent formatting.”
