Publisher and Acquisition Editor
"What impressed me about Cactus Rain Publishing was that, from the very first email, Nadine was keen to advise and encourage. I had spent a long time looking for a suitable publisher, one who would work with me and one I could trust implicitly. The entire process from initial enquiry to end product (which I am delighted with) has been an honest, two-way relationship and if you are lucky enough to be offered a contract with CRP, then I would say do it and appreciate the hard work and integrity that makes CRP what it is." — Barbara Morris
"I was fortunate indeed to come across the website for Cactus Rain Publishing. Not only was my manuscript accepted for publication, but I quickly came to realize how very lucky I had been. The team at CRP are professional, experienced and a delight to work with. When you think your book is ready for publication, you soon realize that to the publisher, it is a First Draft. The team lead me through the process with patience and understanding that I, as the writer, have a story to tell, and the end result is a story to can be proud of. I am fortunate to have great success with The Lacemaker's Daughter and Passengers through CRP, and could not have wished for a better editor as Nadine Laman and the Cactus Rain Publishing team. I highly recommend them." — Diane Keziah Robertson
"Nadine Laman and her team have been patient, encouraging and extremely helpful, from the very first draft of Under the African Sky. Nadine's expert advice and open communication made me feel well looked after. I have learnt a great deal from the thorough feedback, all along the way. I am over the moon about my contract and very proud to be associated with Cactus Rain Publishing. Do I recommend Cactus Rain? Highly and without reservation." — Gail Gilbride Bohle
