Fantastic publisher. Great editors, gorgeous artwork, fair and equal treatment for all authors, honest royalty payouts.

Best Publisher ever! Rolynn Anderson

The best publisher, hands down!

I have one book published with The Wild Rose Press, and another releasing this year. The Wild Rose Press staff is very professional, and at the same time goes out of the way to make writers feel warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Personal and professional!

Proud to say I have a romantic suspense series coming out this year: first book in May. Honored to be working with the WRP. Excellent staff and professionalism in all author interactions.

I love how the editors help make the story the best it can be.

I've two books published with TWRP. I've a fabulous editor, Cindy Davis, and have nothing but good to say about all processes of publishing a book with this e-publisher.

The Wild Rose Press have been an excellent publisher for my romance novels - communication is always efficient, professional and helpful. I feel proud to be associated with TWRP.

Co-founders RJ Morris and Rhonda Penders set the bar high for commnications execs, support staff and editors with their authors. It is obvious they want their authors to be successful. They are simply THE BEST publishers.

TWRP is a great publishing firm to work with. They have a great rep in the industry, quality artists for the book covers, and professional editors that work closely with you to get your book published.

The best E-publishers out there today. Their editors rock!!

Very good to their writers. They offer a variety of romance, something for everybody!

The covers are outstanding, the editors the best and their books A #1

Great to work with, responsive, professional, editors who really care about your, your book, and your writing career.

They give a 'personal touch,' and are very patient with us newer authors who are still learning our way around. I look forward to submitting to them again... and again.

Lovely books, and a joy to work with as an author

Very welcoming to first time authors.

The Wild Rose Press is supportive of their authors.

I don't think it's fair that the Wild Rose Press is listed twice. The second listing is not valid, but it's a way to divide up votes.

Great publisher to work with. I adore my editor, Diana Carlile.

I love TWRP! Not sure why they have two selections in the poll though. But this is a great company!

Best publisher ever!

The Wild Rose Press is the best! Home is where my heart and my books will always belong. A great team of professional and caring people!

The Wild Rose Press is fabulous.

I voted for The Wild Rose Press because I am a new published author and I can't say enough positive comments about their support system with new authors. They made the whole experience, from start to ginish enjoyable including the editing process which we all know feels like your slicing your own throat.

I love The Wild Rose Press. Working with them you know you're in good hands. I've published one book with them and have another releasing in a week and have also signed a contract with them for another book too.

Best and probably largest small press around! Helpful and courteous to all their writers!

Excellent press in every possible way.

They are a great publishers and have great editors.

TWRP is a wonderful publisher! Great editing, strong support, and a highly professional team of editors and staff.

Awesome publisher with editors who work with you and not against you.

The Wild Rose Press was my target publisher for several years before I won my first contract with them. The reason? They make being published fun and their editors are great. Just like I thought would happen, I've been growing leaps and bounds in my writing since being published the first time with them in 2013.

WRP is a supportive and professional place to grow as an author. Great editing, fair contracts, staff who cheer when you have a success, great cover art, a great group of authors, an 'open door policy' (you can email anyone in the company with a concern), make WRP the wind at your back as an author.

They are great and they advertise their books so well

Great publishers, great editors, great writers

Quality company whose main drive is to help writers become better writers!

Vintage Rose line is a soul-satisfying trip into the past.

I've been really pleased with my Wild Rose Press editor (Eilidh MacKenzie), with the art department, and with TWRP's handling of authors in general.

They are extremely professional and truly care about each and every author with whom they work. Prompt as well.

TWRP welcomes new and upcoming authors who the big name publishers won't even consider. They take chances on stories that aren't 'marketable' enough and teach their writers the ins and outs of publishing and marketing.

They are an author oriented publisher. They help the author wherever they can.

Great, quality publisher!

Fantastic publisher!

The Wild Rose Press has published several of my books and I've found them to be professional and helpful in so many ways! They have high ethical standards that seem to be lacking in many so-called publishers these days. In addition, they produce well-edited books with lovely covers.

Approachable and professional.

Wild Rose treats their authors well and it shows in the finished product. Communication is top notch.

Always great reads!!!

Professionalism. Integrity and honor.

Fantastic novelists and a great platform!

Great quality of books with a large variety of books!

They have the best cover models!!

TWRP maintains excellent lines of communication with their authors.
