We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to her and her family during this difficult time.

Author Testimonials

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!

Warm and Friendly to Work with

Whether you're a first time or seasoned author, Black Opal Books offers a warm, friendly (hey, how many publishers can say that?) safe and professional environment in which to produce and develop your work. Black Opal published my first book, RAVING VIOLET, and I have given them my second, MEMORIES, DREAMS & DEFLECTIONS.

Not only is it a heavenly experience to be published, but to know that you are "amongst friends" (both the staff, and fellow authors) is a unique bonus. Black Opal continues to grow, and so does its authors. We are a community, and a very supportive one at that. As the publishing world evolves in light speed fashion, it's nice to know that Black Opal offers a home for writers in this brave new world.

You guys go out of your way to help!!

The first books I contracted to Black Opal Books were written with a co-writer, and we were in the process of separating our relationship in order to pursue solo careers. As a result, our contracts presented unique and more complicated arrangements to ensure all parties’ rights and wishes were respected. Representatives for this publisher conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism at all times and the publishing process was smooth and rapid from contract to publication.

I find the royalty percentages are better than most small press publishers provide and sales on my two current releases have exceeded my expectations. I can endorse this publisher and because I like working with this group, I am now in the process of contracting for publication of another book, this time under my real name.

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!

-Debbie Lee


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.
