I came across Mereo Books by chance when I was looking for a publisher for my autobiography, as I saw on the internet that they specialised in memoirs. They have exceeded my expectations in all respects. The introductory information was detailed, comprehensive and accurate. The contract terms were fair with no unexpected charges. What I found particularly valuable was the frank advice and assistance given freely by the Editor-in-Chief Chris Newton. His extensive experience in the field showed and he answered all my emails with attention and consideration. Mereo Books were able to handle the large number of photographs I wanted inserted in the text and the numerous alterations I needed. I would urge prospective authors to study the prior information and advice provided with care and attention, especially the need to organise any independent marketing envisaged at least three months before publication.I am very pleased with the final product, ‘A Voyage down the Years’, which has been commented on favourably for both its content and presentation. Mereo Books are highly recommended. Guy Warner March 2021
