Rob Silverman

From his earliest memories, Rob Silverman had two dreams. One was to play Right Field in the majors, the other was to become a published author. Well, he ended up batting .500.

His first foray into writing came in 2008 when he started blogging for a popular website. An avid reader, he spends his spare time yelling at the TV during the baseball season, listening to Bruce Springsteen and classic rock from the ’80s, re-watching all six seasons of LOST, or waiting for one of his two spoiled dogs to get out of his favorite chair so he can sit down. His first novel Plain God (Black Opal Books 2015) was set in western Pennsylvania.

I am so grateful!

I am so grateful to be an author with Black Opal Books and am pleased to write this testimonial. I am treated professionally, but like a friend. When I ask questions, I’m given even more helpful information than I expected. Lauri, the acquisitions editor, my book editors, and cover designer have been tremendously kind and patient. I’m happy with my entire experience at Black Opal Books and appreciate their trust in me and my writing craft.
Most sincerely, Carole


Before Black Opal Books, I was so lost..

After I wrote my first book, Rescued from the Dark, I was lost on what my next step should be. I thought I had an amazing story because my family and friends told me so. I took the advice of a friend and found some publishers, just knowing I had the next best seller. After submitting to Black Opal Books, the first time, I received an e-mail. It was a rejection, but a nice one. It explained that I had a good story line but I needed to take some workshops to improve my writing skills, which would improve my book. I soon realized that I wrote a story without knowing how to write so I took her advice. I took some workshops and my story is so much better because of a very informative, instructive rejection letter. Something that you don’t get from many publishers. Black Opal books took a chance on a newbie who had no idea what she was doing but because of some kind words, and encouragement my first book was released February 16, 2013. And I owe it all to an amazing editor named Lauri Wellington and Black Opal Books.

I fell very blessed

I feel very blessed and honored that Black Opal Books chose to publish my book! I had so many questions and was so naïve about everything. BOB's staff is extremely kind, helpful, and understanding. They never make me feel that my questions are stupid and they always take the time to work with me. The feedback I received from the editors was invaluable and very much appreciated! Jack had the patience of Job when he worked with me on my book cover. I couldn't be happier and I hope our relationship lasts a long time!

You guys are Great!!

What I like about Black Opal Books is the natural way you communicate. Mostly your replies are quick when we have questions. To work with the editing department is so easy. My explanations about my writing (or questions about it) is taken without fuss (as I have sometimes experienced differently). My ideas about book covers are worked out beautifully. What can I say?
Two thumbs up!


A Truly wonderful experience.

My experience with Black Opal Books has been wonderful. As a debut Author, I was nervous as to how the process would work. It was fascinating to see, from the inside, how it happened. My editors were very encouraging and responsive. I have already encouraged others writers to submit their work to them.

Thanks, Black Opal Books! Love you all.
