“…For years, I harbored a dream of publishing a memoir that I wrote about an uncle, Vincent “Saint” Santaniello, who was killed in Vietnam on March 28, 1968 while serving as a U.S. Marine. The book, “A Saint’s Letters from the Depths of Hell,” was based on dozens of letters that Saint wrote to his older sister, Lilly, who would give birth to me sixteen months after Vincent’s death. The book also was based on many accounts that Santaniello’s brother Marines courageously shared with me. I knew in my heart that the story was one that would resonate with many; all I needed was a publishing company to believe in me and in my creation. That’s where Halo Publishing International came in.  

Halo is a perfect outlet for independent authors. It is so much more than simply a self-publishing company. They explain every single step of the publishing process and are there for you every step of the way, responding immediately to any questions that may arise. Halo Publishing International acknowledged me as a member of the team, and that personal touch made the entire process quite rewarding. 
 
Of course, in addition to sterling costumer service and client relations, Halo produces a truly amazing opportunity for authors to market their creations. As a new author, I greatly appreciated the constant feedback, support, and assistance to generate the attention and buzz that my book deserved. And, as if all of that wasn’t enough, Halo created amazing artwork to feature my book, as well as a thrilling one minute-long book trailer that took my breath away! Lastly, the quality of the book cover art and fonts are absolutely superb. The Halo team created the book cover art, yet my input, suggestions, and vision were respected and incorporated into the final product. Halo even made me custom business cards and bookmarks to market my creation! Let me tell you: the feeling of holding my book in my hands was sublime. 
 
Halo is ultra-professional with a uniquely personal touch. I am exceptionally grateful for the opportunity to work with Halo in making my dream a reality! If you have the desire to share your creation with the world, and you are looking for a professional publisher that will believe in you and work together with you in maximizing your book’s potential, then Halo Publishing International is there to make that dream a resoundingly successful reality!”

“The entire Halo Publishing International team literally walked me through the publishing process. What a wonderful and professional experience. I had other publishing houses including a traditional publisher waiting to sign me, but I decided to put my trust in Halo. I am enjoying great success with my new memoir, “A Dirt Road to Somewhere”. Thank you Halo! “
