We are proud of the positive responses we receive from our authors.
“Choosing to publish with Cambria is one of the smartest professional decisions I have ever made. From the rigorous peer review to the final product, the Cambria experience exceeds my experience with university presses. I really felt that Cambria cared about my book, and I know that they went the extra mile to produce a book of which I am very proud. Most importantly, I would choose to publish with Cambria again. I can offer no higher praise!”
I have nothing but praise for Cambria Press. Throughout the entire process of the submission, review, editing, design, proofing, printing, and distribution of our book, the entire staff at Cambria has been completely professional at all times. They have been promptly responsive and thoroughly attentive at every step of the way. Cambria guidelines are clear and their standards are high. It would be impossible for me to suggest any improvements in the way our manuscript was handled from start to finish.”
Navigating the twists and turns of publishing a book requires a skilled navigator. That is particularly true when the authors are new to the process. Cambria Press, so capably led by Toni Tan, proved more than equal to the task.
Whatever skill or quality the moment required, Toni supplied it—enthusiasm, creativity, patience, sensitivity, responsiveness, and, above all, professionalism. She earned our confidence at every step of the way from submission to design, production, and delivery.
The proof is in the pudding as they say, and we are delighted with Seeking Bipartisanship. Thank you Cambria Press, Toni Tan, and her team.
The publication of my books with Cambria Press in the series coordinated by Professor Román de la Campa has been one of the wisest and most rewarding experiences of my career. I am indebted to the Cambria team for their expertise and generosity, and for the enthusiasm and respect that they demonstrated at all times towards my work. The entire process—from evaluation of my manuscript, the thorough editing of the book content, to the preparation of indexes—was painless and efficient due to their hard work, patience, and professionalism. It was a real pleasure for me to work with them, and I certainly hope that we will have new opportunities to work together in the near future.
I highly recommend this press to anybody interested in working with an efficient, capable, intellectually committed editorial team who will treat your work with the consideration it deserves.
My experience with Cambria Press has been exceptional. With an image-heavy art historical text, I had had problems finding a press that understood the significance of not only images but also the need for color images within my book project.
Fortunately for me, the editors at Cambria were quick to see their importance for my publication and supported this decision throughout the entire process.
They were also very supportive of my desire to create complementary online teaching materials in support of my text, something other presses would not accommodate.
Throughout the entire process, everyone at Cambria Press was extremely professional and respectful of my concerns.
After rigorous peer review that helped me refine and clarify areas within my text, the team at Cambria produced—within a scant six months!—a beautifully designed book with copious color images that everyone agrees is 'just gorgeous' in addition to being a valuable work of scholarship.
I cannot be happier with the final result and I cannot say enough about how pleasant the entire experience has been. I have been recommending Cambria Press to everyone who has asked.
Working with Cambria Press has been a most satisfying experience. The editorial team's effectiveness and professionalism are exemplary.
The manuscript was given a rigorous editing process, and the attention to detail in everything concerning production was impressive.
From the title of the book to cover design, page layout, and marketing efforts, all have been handled with extreme care and thoughtfulness. Cambria is without a doubt a high-quality academic press.
It is committed to producing and promoting solid and important scholarship. I would strongly recommend Cambria Press to all scholars, and I shall seek to work with Cambria Press again in the future.
From first contact to a published book was only six months—1/3 the time required for my books with other publishers. The speed was only possible due to the exceptional professionalism of the Cambria Press team. They made clear what they expected of the author and provide clear, concise written instructions for each step of the process. No matter what stage of the process or which team member, the Cambria Press team responded the same day to every inquiry. This was particularly helpful in the content and copy editing phases of the production. The editors are outstanding professionals focused on helping the author produce the best possible book. Perhaps most amazing, the time between final rewrite and publication was only three months.
Thus a book published in October had current date from July of the same year. If you are publishing on a current issue or in a fast moving field, Cambria Press is clearly the only choice.
It was a delight from beginning to end to work with the Cambria team! It started with a spontaneous visit to the Cambria booth at an AAS annual conference. I mentioned that my colleague and I had a good idea for a book on Taiwan cinema and we wanted to move the project to publication as quickly as possible, but without skipping any steps.
I was impressed by the sincere interest expressed and the clear understanding that we and the press would stick to the ambitious set of deadlines I spelled out. In all phases of the project (final preparation for submission, external review, revision, copyediting, publication and promotion) communications were always timely and constructive. It was important to us that the press regarded our book as an important work, and I'm happy to say that feeling was communicated throughout. My colleagues and I look forward to our next opportunity to publish a book with Cambria Press
Cambria Press is receptive and flexible in unique ways that bring out the best in authorship. My experience has been positively inspiring. The difference between working with Cambria Press and several others is that Cambria editors provide timely, top quality advice informed by useful peer reviews and sustained by amazing initiative. Also, innovation is nurtured by a refreshing level of intellectualism that risks new ideas. Toni Tan is a phenomenal director whose professionalism and personal touch made the whole experience so rewarding. Geoffrey Burn, editor of Rapid Communications in Conflict and Security Series, is also a pleasure to work with.
He provided a broad perspective with expansive insights that were always on point. Overall, Cambria Press orchestrated useful critiques with a service ethic and peerless support.
Cambria Press was the first publisher I contacted because I kept hearing many good things about the press over the past few years. I am glad I made that decision. From the bottom of my heart, I feel blessed working together with such a professional team. Throughout the entire process, the Cambria editors always provided prompt responses to my inquiries. The peer reviews were extremely valuable in helping shape my revisions for a better book. Additionally, I appreciate the considerable efforts the staff put into the editorial procedures, cover design, and book promotion.
I am genuinely pleased with the final outcome and to provide my recommendation of Cambria.
I published my first book with Cambria, and I have no doubt that I made the right decision. The editors were enthusiastic about my scholarship and were always attentive to my needs and concerns. The double-blind peer review process was just as thorough as top-ranked university presses, and the editors were extremely efficient in publishing the book once it had passed peer review. Considering this was my first book publication, I was at times uncertain over the process, but Cambria Press team answered my questions quickly, thoroughly, and they never failed to praise me for my work.
I couldn't ask for a better publisher, and I've since recommended Cambria Press to my colleagues.
I have published several books with many publishers, but Cambria Press has given me by far the best author experience at every stage of the publishing process: the contract proposal, the rigorous review process involved, the editing and proof reading, and the highly professional post-publication services.
Cambria Press is certainly one of the top publishers in the 21st century!
Several years ago, when I first approached Toni Tan at Cambria Press, I was deeply impressed by her combination of professionalism and congeniality.
Having now completed and published a book with Cambria, I can say that the entire process, from the rigorous peer review through editing, cover design, and printing, was characterized by the same level of commitment and proficiency.
As a first-time book author, I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with Cambria Press. From the very start, I felt that both myself and my manuscript were being treated with the utmost respect and courtesy, even as the manuscript underwent a rigorous review. As we moved into editing and production, I was amazed by the ability of Cambria staff to work so efficiently and effectively, and yet with such warmth and friendliness. I will always feel grateful for how wonderfully Cambria Press, and Toni Tan and Michelle Wright in particular, nurtured my book and continue to support it.
Now as I field compliments about how beautiful the book looks, I relish giving credit to the brilliant people at Cambria!
“Thanks to Sean Kelly and Scott Frisch, the series editors for
Cambria's series on Politics, Institutions, and Public Policy in America. They enthusiastically supported the project. Toni Tan, Michelle Wright,
and the rest of the incredible staff of Cambria Press have made the publication process—from our original contact to the finished book—pleasant
and productive. We are very impressed with their professional skill and assistance.”
Working with Cambria has been a true pleasure from start to finish, which is saying a lot given the often stressful process of publishing a book. The commitment to quality on the part of the director and her staff was evident from the review stage through printing. At the same time, I felt a surprising degree of common purpose with each step of the process.
These people clearly enjoy their work, and that makes all the difference.
“The author's copies arrived and I must say they look lovely! Working with Cambria Press, whose standards equal and even surpass many university presses, has been a real revelation. I was impressed by the high degree of professionalism throughout the process, from the initial peer reviews to the copy editing and preparing the manuscript for final publication. That all this could be done electronically, without repeatedly sending the hard copy back and forth through the mail, was a welcome discovery. I particularly appreciate the help I received from the Cambria Press staff, whose valuable experience and selfless dedication were evident at every step. I would not hesitate to publish with Cambria Press again in the future.”
“My experience with Cambria was rewarding in every way. They really cared about the argument I was putting forth and they spared no effort in making the manuscript into one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen. Toni Tan is a consummate professional who is relentless in her quest to work together with her authors, in what becomes a meeting of minds, to bring about the best possible scholarly book. What impressed me greatly was to see how Cambria seeks out the innovative and the challenging in the scholarly world — without fear. The peer review and editing processes were conducted with rigor and efficiency. I really enjoyed working with the editors at Cambria. I would recommend Cambria without any reservations, especially to those authors whose work challenges academic orthodoxies.”
“Working with Cambria Press was a personal as well as a professional pleasure. Everyone with whom I worked was extremely capable and always very professional and pleasant. They kept me well informed at every stage of the process, answered my questions in a timely manner, and did a fantastic job getting my manuscript to print. I have nothing but positive things to say about my relationship with Cambria and recommend the press to friends and colleagues.”
“Working with Cambria Press to produce the first-ever scholarly monograph on author Shirley Hazzard was a great experience. In particular, the combination of professionalism, efficiency, and experience from the Cambria Press team meant that the project proceeded remarkably swiftly and seamlessly from start to finish. I was impressed throughout with the care and attentiveness of the editorial process, as well as with the skills of the design team, who produced a really great-looking book. I would certainly recommend the press to other literary scholars.”
“Venturing to submit for publication a manuscript that was a departure from my previous research was a testing experience, and I was lucky in choosing Cambria for its publisher. I am more than usually grateful to the director and her team for their thoroughly professional and responsible approach to all aspects of the process from managing the review through editing, proofreading, and printing. It was a pleasure to work with them, and I warmly recommend Cambria to novice and senior researchers alike.”
My great good fortune was to have been encouraged by my editor at Cambria Press and the exemplary Cambria team. I was delighted to have their expert, collegial assistance and advice that enabled the publication of my book. Like humanity, literature is one.
“ From the initial query to the ongoing marketing of Philosophy, Art, and the Specters of Jacques Derrida, everyone at Cambria exhibited the very highest levels of professionalism, intellectual sophistication, and respect for the project of scholarship. Their graphic design team did a fabulous job of representing the contents in the cover image; their copy-editors were infuriatingly brilliant at making suggestions for improvement of the prose; and their choice of external readers changed the book dramatically for the better. We all know, by now, that authorship is a gathering of multiple voices and I am deeply grateful that my writing is enabled to speak through Cambria's vision of the book as the book itself multiplies.
“Working with Cambria Press, from start to finish, was a pleasurable and rewarding process. Material was always dealt with promptly and effectively, the staff were
highly professional, and the Press open to a variety of suggestions concerning coverage, length and marketing. Its members were also very understanding of the problems that authors and academic undertakings can experience, and without fail resourceful and sensible in dealing with them. I would highly recommend Cambria as a place to publish serious scholarship, and I shall certainly seek to place work with this press in future.”
“Working with Cambria Press has been a true pleasure from the very beginning to the lucky moment when I had a beautiful book in my hands, that matched up to all my expectations. The peer review was swift, accurate and helpful, the editing highly professional and at the same time sensitive to my wishes, the cooperation with the staff always extremely pleasant and productive: all the time I worked with a little smile on my face. No doubt, I would choose Cambria Press again and will recommend it to colleagues.
“My experience of working with Cambria Press has been a satisfying and extraordinary experience. The manuscript underwent a rigorous editing process. Every stage of the book production demonstrated the highest level of expertise, and the meticulous attention to detail in cover design, page layout, choice of font and high quality paper all bear testimony to the dedication to excellence of the Cambria team.”
“I cannot compare my experience publishing my book at Cambria Press with other publishers, because this was my first book. I had a lot of apprehension about the rigors of the publishing process before I got involved with the people at Cambria, but at each step of the way they removed all the grief, and laid out very clearly what to do and how. There were no negative moments. The almost miraculous smoothness of this undertaking has been very surprising. I suppose this happy experience is primarily due to the wonderful people who work at Cambria Press. Again I say that I've been astonished at the kindness and pleasantness I've experienced at each encounter with the people at every level of the process. But to get a book through to publication requires more than niceness, and in this regard I praise the excellence of the staff in providing help, encouragement and solutions. In particular, the editing phase involved an outstanding combination of flexibility and effectiveness that not only detected numerous, horrifying errors, but also unquestionably improved the overall quality of expression in the book. Work on the editing was extremely reliable and reasonably paced; the editors were careful, sustained, polite, engaged and attentive; and I was graciously given many opportunities to get things right before the final version was concluded. It was great to feel supported by such personable, competent and energetic people. I hereby express my deep gratitude.”
“Cambria Press is not just an author-friendly academic press--it pampers its authors and contributors. The press is always attentive to your wishes, right down to the aesthetics of your book cover; it has a keen sense of marketing and takes measures to ensure that your book has a long shelf life and gets the highest technological boost into the next generations. Our experience was with Cambria Press was great!
“Cambria is a great press for first-time authors like me. The staff at Cambria were professional and extremely helpful in guiding me through the entire publishing process. From the initial submission to peer review, editing, proofing, and cover design, the staff worked diligently in accommodating all my needs and requests. Never once did they complain about the complicated typesetting of the sinitic characters crucial to the argument of my book. Cambria's effort in promoting my book at related conferences and placing it with the works of renowned scholars is evidence of their serious investment in academic scholarship.”
“ Cambria Press also provided moral support during my tumultuous stay in Tunisia during the January 2011 coup! it was odd to have the staff of a publishing house voicing concern during this brush with history; if Jacques Derrida was still alive, he would have called it amitié éditoriale.
“ I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Cambria Press. I found the staff to be extraordinarily professional and quick to answer any questions I have had. Cambria Press has high standards and they seek to get the absolute most out of their authors--which serves all well. They have also been quite accommodating of any suggestions I made throughout the process--from the title of the book, to the book's cover, to marketing efforts. I hope to be among the growing list of Cambria authors to be recognized for their scholarly contributions. In short, Cambria Press has turned out to be an exceptional advocate of my work, and I am delighted to have my book appear in its growing catalogue.
“ From the initial book proposal to the final review, Cambria Press exceeded all of my publishing expectations. Everyone with whom I had the good fortune to work was responsive, courteous, and committed to publishing quality work. I felt supported throughout the process, which as a first-time book author, was especially important. The editors were meticulous in their attention to detail and the designers of the cover creatively captured and conveyed the theme of the book. I couldn't be happier with the final product, as well as its promotion. Thank you Cambria Press for a seamless and enjoyable publishing process.
“Working with Cambria Press is really a delightful experience. From the day that my manuscript was submitted for peer review to the final production of my book, I enjoyed every step of it. At first, I had some concerns about publishing my first academic book with a non-university press, but Cambria Press well exceeds my professional expectations. I am not only highly satisfied with the final product and its distribution, but I also appreciate the extra mile the director of the press took to support my academic job application. I feel that I am now part of Cambria Press community and will surely recommend it to my scholar friends as well as publish my future books with this press.”
“I enjoyed working with Cambria Press all the way.
I chose Cambria because they promised a professional handling of the whole publication process and the actual job the Cambria staff did fulfilled this promise and much more!
Cambria combines professionalism with promptness at every stage of the entire process. Always clear in their guidance, prompt in facing each new challenge, responsive to questions and suggestions, they did an outstanding job.
There have been immense benefits from publishing my book with Cambria Press. The attention the Cambria staff pays to each detail—from the wording of the title to the choice of scholarly readers, to the colors and design of the cover is its distinguishing feature. Having a book published by Cambria Press certainly makes a difference in the overall quality of the finished product.”
“We had a tremendously complex project: 18 contributors, two editing authors, tables, graphs, figures and photos, and a time lag in our communication . . . and with the 2011 March earthquake in Japan, content that needed to be revised right to the end. The Cambria team handled it all, perfectly and professionally. No question: Cambria provides excellent service to its authors. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with Cambria again.”
“I had a great experience with Cambria. The entire staff at Cambria Press did a fantastic job at every point of the way--the rapid peer review process, the professional and attentive copy editing that refined the manuscript, the clear guidance they provided, and their responsiveness when it came time to review their copy editing, and the extremely high production values that went into producing in a very fine-looking and professional final product. Cambria is professional, responsive, attentive to detail, and they work intensely and quickly on your book project. I am extremely grateful for all of their work and would be very happy to work with them again.”
“Cambria Press was easy to work with from the very start. At every stage of our project, they appreciated the different challenges confronting authors, especially new ones, and were more than willing to work with us to ensure we were all happy with the final product. Their post-publication outreach and promotion efforts were outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Cambria again and would strongly recommend them to colleagues.”
“Working with Cambria Press to publish our book resulted in a volume of scholarship and criticism even beyond our expectations. The people at Cambria made every part of the publishing process clear and enjoyable. Everyone, from the editor who oversaw our work to the shipping department, demonstrated high standards, kindness, patience, and clarity in communication. From the start I knew that I was dealing with dependable people who worked with us to achieve the end results we all wanted. When we needed more time for the project, it was granted. The diligent (and in our estimation, brilliant) reader selected by the press enabled us to bring individual chapters, by a variety of authors, to a consistent level of excellence. And the editors helped reorganize the volume for greater clarity, effectiveness, and usefulness. The design team worked hard to find an appropriate and beautiful cover image and create a striking cover design. We also appreciate the exposure provided at conferences and on the well-designed Cambria website. One way to sum up the experience of working with the staff at Cambria is simply to say they are efficient and professional. The publications speak for themselves!”
“My experience with Cambria was absolutely pleasant. Cambria provides high-quality, careful peer reviews by well-published scholars in the field; these were very insightful and helpful. Cambria Press is also one of the few academic presses, as far as I know, which provide free and solid full service from meticulous editing, typesetting, to individualized cover design. Neither subvention not self-prepared edited / typeset works were required. The detailed queries made by the editors were impressive! From the first year my book was marketed, I could review its sales on the website and started receiving royalties. I am proud of the professionalism, efficiency, and friendliness of all Cambria staff, and I have recommended Cambria to my colleagues.”
“Our book on Cuban foreign policy was the first that we published with Cambria Press after working with many other publishers. It has been a first-rate experience throughout the process from the development stage through to the final product. I was especially impressed by the turnaround time from the completion of our manuscript to the publication of the book. It was much faster than most. I would urge other authors to consider sending their manuscripts to Cambria.”
“The publishing experience with Cambria Press has been very positive, and we have been impressed with the levels of communication and approachability of all staff. From the point of submission of a proposal to publication, the Cambria staff demonstrated a high level of professionalism and commitment to the project. We were particularly impressed with staff 'going the extra mile' to ensure the book was made it in time to Australia in time for a book launch. We would not hesitate to recommend Cambria Press.”
“It has been such a wonderful pleasure working with Cambria Press. The competent editorial and production staff were attentive to every detail and were great at communicating with me during the entire review and publication process. I would like to express my great appreciation for Cambria Press's prompt, courteous, and professional service. I highly recommended Cambria Press for all academic authors.”
“My two publishing experiences with Cambria were awesome. My editor followed all the stages of the manuscript preparation and always answered promptly to all my questions. Cambria's staff is extremely efficient and rigorous during the various stages of the publication process: proposal submission, peer review process, cover design, copyediting, typesetting, and proofs review. As a result, the quality of the final product is very impressive. For all these reasons, I highly recommend Cambria to my fellow scholars, and expect to continue working with Cambria in the future.”
“My experience of working with the team at Cambria was overwhelmingly positive. They were professional and well-organised and always on hand to assist with all matter of queries. The review and contract process was handled smoothly and with a minimum of fuss. The level of care and attention to detail that went into the copy editing of the manuscript was outstanding. The materials that Cambria produce to assist authors throughout the various stages of publication are very helpful in explaining what is expected. The quality of the finish of my book is of the highest standard, already I have had many comments about how appealing the end product is. Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending Cambria to any author considering publishing their work. I look forward to working with Cambria Press again. ”
“I'm a relative newcomer to Cambria, so I decided to read all the other testimonials before writing mine. I didn't want to be redundant, and I also thought that maybe I could find something complimentary to say about this wonderful institution that someone else hadn't already said. But there was no way to avoid redundancy, because (a) every good thing imaginable had been said about Cambria by its authors, and (b) I agreed with all those things emphatically! So I decided to focus on something that, although mentioned by others, really deserves more emphasis: the physical quality of the books. The two books I've done with Cambria are impressively produced as objects and beautifully designed in every conceivable way. Friends and colleagues who've seen them always remark on how very high above the norm they are, just as physical books alone, and they are right in that assessment. (I say this having seen lots of other Cambria books on my library's shelves at the University of Virginia.) So if you want an academic press that, in addition to every other good thing, will turn out books that look like works of art, choose Cambria! Because their books are works of art and arguably the best in academic publishing!”
“I have only the highest praise for Cambria Press and its staff. The skill and efficiency of the various editors made each stage not only successful but worry-free. From the beginning of production I worked with competent editors who made very helpful suggestions about clarity as well as correctness. It seemed like dozens of eyes were scouring my manuscript through numerous proofs. A team effort, with the entire team taking pride in the outcome. What I especially appreciate is Cambria's faith in my project. Instead of requiring me to cut hundreds of pages, the press suggested two volumes. What a difference it makes when your publisher realizes the value of six years of work.”
“The remarkable director of Cambria Press and her staff have not only exceeded the highest levels of professionalism, but they have also been some of the most wonderful people with whom I have ever worked. Their energy, responsiveness, and commitment to publishing quality research and supporting the author through the process have already made them an industry leader.”
“ My experience working with the Cambria Press was nothing short of positive. From initial review all the way through publication, I benefitted from the assistance of a knowledgeable and attentive editorial and production staff. I am thoroughly pleased with the final product and would recommend Cambria to any colleague without reservation.
“ Working with Cambria was a surprising experience. I was surprised by how smooth and simple they seemed to make the processes of proposal, peer-review and editing, and how easy the dedicated and professional staff made getting the book from manuscript to completion. When so many university presses are becoming more conservative about their choices of material to publish, Cambria's approach is refreshing, and their commitment to the critical monograph was impressive. I'd certainly consider them as a publisher of choice in future, especially if they're going to continue making the process of publication as stress-free as possible, but without sacrificing the rigor.
“ Working with Cambria Press has been a wonderful experience right from the beginning. From the submission of my manuscript for peer review through the process of editing, proofing and designing, to the final production of my book, the staff at Cambria was thoroughly professional, responsive and attentive. What I greatly appreciate is not just their attention to details in the editing and proofing process, but also their professionalism in handling the distribution of my book in both hard copy and digital format. As a first-time author, I could not have asked for a better experience with a publisher.
“ Working with Cambria Press is a pleasure. They supported me effectively and promptly. Their suggestions were to the point. I appreciated their consideration and interest, and I am positive that my decision to count on Cambria Press for my first book publication was the right one.
I do not know if I can ever fully express my appreciation to Cambria Press for the way in which they accommodated my needs as an author. I was particularly grateful throughout the editing process for their respect for my style of writing, as well as their professionalism.
“Starting with the submission of my proposal, continuing with the revision and the editing of the manuscript, and finishing with the cover design and the expeditious printing of my book, the entire publishing process with Cambria Press was one of the most professionally satisfying and personally enjoyable experiences of my career. Cambria's director and editors held back from no extra effort towards helping me revise and expand my manuscript. Working with such outstanding professionals and exceptionally friendly people quickly turned into an unforgettable learning experience and a fascinating journey of self-discovery. The excellence of the Cambria team reaches well beyond any scholar's expectations of efficiency and reliability; all communication is bound to become personal, inspiring, and wonderfully motivating. It is good to know that my book is in the best of hands.”
“My experience with Cambria Press was extremely positive, Fstarting with my initial conversations with their acquisitions editor to working with their editorial and management personnel. All were extremely professional and helpful in producing a first-rate volume. They worked hard to accommodate me in every respect, right down to the cover. I chose to publish an edited volume with Cambria even though I had offers from several other publishers because of the people working for Cambria and the fact that this press has an impressive number of standing orders with libraries worldwide. I would opt to publish with them again.
“I first learned about Cambria Press when I received a book announcement for a recent publication in my discipline. As a first-time author, I found the staff at Cambria Press to offer an incredible level of assistance at each stage of the publishing process. The feedback from the peer review was very helpful in clarifying my thoughts and the editing allowed my own ideas to be more evident to the reader.”
“Working with Cambria Press is both enjoyable and satisfying. Everyone associated with Cambria was prompt, friendly and helpful. The peer reviews were excellent, and the editorial responsiveness pushed the book toward publication at an astonishing rate. To me, Cambria is absolutely first class and I look forward to a continued relationship. I am very satisfied with Cambria Press and I recommend the organization without any qualification. In a world where many publishers behave as if they are doing authors a favour by publishing their works, Cambria keeps the priorities right and makes every effort to accommodate authors.”
“The publishing experience with Cambria Press was outstanding. From facilitating an excellent peer-review process to amazing editorial assistance, the staff members are incredibly efficient at working to create the best possible product. At every step of the way, I felt like they were as equally concerned as I was for the quality of the book. I appreciated their attention to detail, responsiveness in communication, and ongoing support. This is a fantastic academic publisher.”
“As a first-time author with a very heavy professional workload, I could not have made a better choice than Cambria Press. They are prompt, responsive, and clear in all of their communications. The finished product is a work of which I am proud, and it was improved immensely by the peer-review process and the Cambria staff. With such an efficient production process and the ability to distribute my work in both physical and digital form, Cambria is a company for the present and the future. I will undoubtedly return to them first for my next book.”
“Cambria gives you much more than you expect from a publisher. You get to know the staff and I have the highest regard for their professionalism. They stay with you from the conception of the project to its conclusion. I am glad I made the decision to publish with them.”
“From the time I submitted my book proposal to the final publication of the book itself, I have had nothing but excellent experiences with Cambria Press. The staff at the press strike a balance of being both warm and professional, and they were always quick to respond to any queries that I had. They were most supportive during the rigorous peer-review process, and they impressed me with their efficiency and enthusiasm during the publication process. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Cambria, and I simply cannot recommend Cambria Press highly enough.
“Cambria Press has astonished me with the swiftness and professionalism of their approach. As an international author, working with an American publisher has sometimes been challenging, but that has not been the case with Cambria. My book was published well within the promised time frame. I would gladly recommend Cambria to other academic authors.
“Publishing a book usually is a time-consuming process and involves enormous hard work, but when working with Cambria it becomes a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed the whole process of working with Cambria on my book, from submission to review, editing, design, proofing, printing, and distribution. The staff at Cambria is professional, respond quickly to any inquiries, and provide highly valuable, constructive suggestions. Most importantly, they tailor their work to the needs of individuals and treat your book as their own. This makes publishing a book a much easier and pleasant process. I give my biggest thumbs-up for the excellent work done by Cambria on my 340-page book and will definitely choose Cambria for my next book. If you ask me where to publish your hard-worked research results, one word: Cambria.
“There is something rare and amazing about Cambria Press.
They remain true to their word from the very first conversation to the publication of your accepted manuscript. It is so refreshing to deal with publishers who are valiant advocates for their authors.
I can share one example. Our manuscript was shopped around to a number of presses who either because of overwhelmed staff, poor management, or the rapidly changing economy,
could not give us the attention that we thought our scholarly publication on hip hop deserved. But when a colleague, who continues to have a great relationship with Cambria Press,
pulled us aside and said "Give Cambria a try!" We followed what turned out to be the best advice ever given in 2009. We worked hard, followed the directions of the publications manager and staff, and kept to deadlines usually without fail during frenzied teaching schedules. The toil was worth the effort and I am so proud of the finished product. The quality of the text is outstanding and the cover design was truly in line with the spirit of the manuscript. I think Cambria Press is the best kept secret for academic publishing. Whisper the good word to your colleagues and I am sure that they won’t be disappointed. Thank you Cambria for the opportunity of working with people who embody honesty and integrity!”
“Almost immediately upon signing a contract with Cambria Press, I knew I had made the right decision. Cambria’s standards are very high and this showed in every part of the publication process. My manuscript was immediately peer reviewed by insightful and knowledgeable scholars in the field who gave sound and useful advice. Upon completion of the final draft, Cambria’s staff worked carefully and quickly to bring the book to publication.
