Lisa and Mary Beth were wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with on my first book. They were so professional and efficient, a complete joy. Their enthusiasm and work ethic are unmatched. My book, Marigold and the Snoring King, receives multiple compliments on what a professional and beautiful book it is. It’s all because of the fine job they do at Halo Publishing International. I can’t wait to work with them again.
Halo Publishing helped me through every step of the publishing process. They were extremely patient and understanding – highly recommend!
Everyone from Halo Publishing International has been so kind and wonderful. They have always been quick to respond to and answer any question I have had and the team has done beautiful work with my book! I could not be happier about the process and the end results. And my book became available for sale much earlier than we’d anticipated, which was a nice surprise! Thank you so much to all involved, and especially to Lisa and Erin who had my best interests in mind from the beginning.

“Lisa Umina and 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! “
“Everyone at Halo has been extremely helpful and professional. Lisa and her staff have been available whenever I have questions about the publishing process, which has been frequent. Writing my book was easy. I know with their help I’ll get through all the other “stuff” to make my story really shine and be a best seller. I will do all the marketing I can in order to assist in the process.
Thanks for all your patience, Jodie, Erin and Lisa!”

“I don’t even know how to start singing my praises of working with Lisa and Halo. Lisa encouraged me and gave me that little extra nudge to have me take the plunge. She always answers every question (as silly as they may be) within a short time frame. I know I can count on her to give me safe and sound advice. If you are considering self publishing, call Lisa! You will not regret it.”

“I don’t think my journey into the author arena would have been nearly as swift or strong without the guidance of Halo Publishing. They go above and beyond to help their authors become successful! I highly recommend HPI to anyone looking to get a book out to the universe.”
-Patti Brassard Jefferson
“I want to truly thank Halo Publishing for bringing the special project from The Lord to honor my Son, Michael J. Ayers legacy to life and to keep it alive. The book is titled After the Mighty Storm, I’m Still Standing. The Halo Publishing staff are truly professionals. I was pleased with the outcome of my 1st published book. Other Christian publishers tried to get in touch with me, but the Lord told me to choose Halo Publishing International. I am glad that I did. I highly recommend Halo Publishing to all authors out there looking to publish your story!!! I give them 5 Stars all the way!!!”
-Loretta R. Theus-Tolliver
“God sent me in Halo’s direction. I hadn’t even written my book yet, but I had a great support team at Halo. My disabilities, including MS and others, kept me in fear, but how could I be afraid, feeling stuck or even dumb at times, when I had Halo on the phone talking me patiently through everything? They encouraged me every step of the way and then some. They prayed for me and my book, and I give thanks to God for sending me to Halo.”
“I found Halo provided the help and support that a first time author really needs and gets you ready for future endeavors. Amanda has been great to work with providing valuable information on the marketing of my book. It was a pleasure working with everyone at Halo.”
“Lisa and her team were great working with my 12-year-old who wanted to write her first book; at that time she was 10. I think she is ready to write another book now. Halo was patient, understanding, and flexible, and we thank you for that. The evil cheerleader book has given my daughter confidence and an entrepreneurial mindset, which I love.”
“Halo Publishing is top notch. I’ve enjoyed every encounter with Lisa Umina and her professional staff. Every time I reach out, either by phone or email, they are quick to respond and help. Currently writing my second book and will use Halo again! Awesome group to work with!”

“Halo Publishing was incredible. Lisa and her staff work tirelessly to bring out the very best in each and every one of their authors, from brainstorming to marketing ideas and editing. We can’t say enough about Halo. Thank you for bringing the kids’ creativity to book-form for others to enjoy. You are simply the best!!!!”
“I can barely see through my tears. I have to keep reminding myself I did this. At this moment, with the book in my hand, I have tears of joy. I had almost forgotten what that was. Every single thing I have been through in the last four and a half years was worth it to have this feeling I have right now.”
“I found the people at Halo Publishing to be as passionate about my story as I am. They’ve treated me with great respect and professionalism from the very beginning. Their combined years of hands-on experience in the children’s literary industry coupled with their genuine concern for my success placed me in the best position as a new author. “
“I have always had the dream of writing a book about animals. Halo Publishing made that dream come true. With the help and guidance of Lisa Umina, I was able to share my ‘wild’ world with children of all ages. This has been a wonderful, exciting, and educational experience for me…”
-Jungle Bob Tuma
“It’s been almost one year exactly since my book, Acorn Gert & Brother Bert was published. I want to thank Halo Publishing International for making my FIRST book publishing experience, a great one. If you’re thinking about self-publishing, I highly recommend Lisa M. Umina Author and her team.”
-Elizabeth Duncan Stretar
“If you have ever considered self-publishing that story you have written and put in the drawer. . . The PERFECT team to ensure that your book is FABULOUS. . . Illustrator Kimberly Margaret Sponaugle and Lisa Michelle Umina – Halo Publishing International I cannot say enough. . .”
“Publishing and marketing can be a big mystery and a difficult process, but not for me. Halo took me through step by step, considered all my questions, and answered ones I didn’t even know I had. I feel confident knowing that my publisher was first an author herself.”
