All of us have a unique story to tell. We all have invaluable life experiences. We have treasured memories – the building blocks that give us substance and make us alive. We have experienced change – the birth of a child, the death of a loved one, or the founding of our town, the rise of our organisations and the development or destruction of our communities.
We delve into our past to recall episodes and occasions; our emotions are stirred at the sight of old photographs, copies of birth, death and marriage certificates, piles of old love letters tied tightly with ribbon, postcards from overseas, mementos and souvenirs, locked diaries and hidden keepsakes.
Recently, we used the services of ‘Love of Books’ to professionally print a family history book we had written as a family keepsake.
Having no previous experience in printing a family history book, and having a deadline to meet, we needed to ascertain how to go about it, the formatting requirements, how long it would take and the cost. We wanted personal contact with someone we could discuss these issues with face to face, rather than trying to deal with a faceless person over the internet or telephone. When we first made contact with Julie McGregor, Director of ‘Love of Books’ she fully appreciated our needs and arranged to meet us. Julie readily answered all our queries and it soon became apparent that she was technically across all the issues involved in getting a book printed. She assured us that our deadline could meet.
What impressed us most was that Julie McGregor was genuine and straightforward in all her answers and came across as someone we believed we could rely on. From this initial meeting until the final draft for printing, a time frame that also included having to have a book cover designed, we found that Julie made herself willingly available by email, telephone or personal contact. She promptly answered and addressed any issues or problems as they arose. Her diligence took any possible frustration and stress out of the whole process making it an overall enjoyable experience. Not only was it possible to get our book printed but it was to our satisfaction and within our tight deadline.
Our experience with ‘Love of Books’ was a very positive one and we have no hesitation in recommending Julie McGregor to anyone who may be thinking of printing or publishing a book. Robert & Larrane Mc Donald Highland Park, Queensland.
