Testimonial from Dr. Jane M. Biehl, author of the children’s book Here to Bump and Bump to Hear

Self-published children's book

One must be careful about stereotypes.  After several years of talking to writers and participating in a writing group, I was terrified about working with a real-life editor.

Until I worked with Happy Tails Books.

Kyla Duffy and her support staff are knowledgeable, caring, experienced, and a joy to work with. They transformed a novice like me into a ‘real’ writer with an excellent book that has received positive reviews. I do not feel the book was self-published but jointly published.

The people behind Happy Tails Books have a wealth of experience and an unbelievable work ethic with tons of energy. I never waited more than a day to receive a response to a question and usually received one immediately. I found all of their suggestions helpful and would recommend them to anyone who wants to publish a book!”


About Happy Tails Books

Happy Tails Books was founded in 2009 to encourage adoption and raise money for pet rescue organizations. Since then, we’ve donated more than $45,000 to our rescue partner organizations.

“MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue was excited for the opportunity to partner with Happy Tails Books for a fundraiser. It was easy to promote the fundraiser through our newsletter and Facebook page. Our members love the hand-crafted rhinestone design HTB made specifically for our rescue, and we earned more than $350 in one month without having to spend a dime.” – Jennifer Misfeldt, President, MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
