“I have just completed publishing my first book with Fay Thompson & Big Moose Publishing. This process has been a
breeze with Fay’s help and expertise in this area. She has walked me through the process and made the entire process enjoyable. Her compassion, help, ideas, and great editing skills have made this process fast and easy. Fay is driven to move this process along to get the book published professionally and on time. I have enjoyed her help and will look forward to publishing my next book with Big Moose Publishing very soon.” – Gina Strole, Author of Fear Breakthrough

“Thinking about publishing a book and not sure where to start? I highly recommend you connect with Fay Thompson at Big Moose Publishing!

In 2019 I embarked upon my first collaboration book project and chose Big Moose Publishing to handle the details involved in self publishing through Ingram and Amazon. That was definitely a wise choice! There were many times during the process that I felt overwhelmed or frustrated and may have abandoned the project without Fay’s unwavering support. She was always patient, helpful and willing to answer my million questions. She knew when to reach out with support and when to let me figure things out for myself. Fay was my guiding light and I am not sure I would have completed the project without her. Thank you Fay and Big Moose Publishing.  ” – Bonnie Bogner, Author of Hope for Humanity
