“I very much appreciated the well-organized and efficient pattern of guidance from Trafford staff as we moved through the manuscript preparation and publication process. I was attracted by the way in which I was not forced into a cookie-cutter format but was able to make my own editorial decisions…I have already recommended Trafford to other authors.”

Paul Irion, author of That Far Land We Dream About
