My granddaughter, now an artist and architect, and I have long shared a love for children’s books and had dreamed about collaborating on one together. The Lilja team made that possible for novices like us with their initial encouragement of our project, wise counsel on how to tell these stories from our family history, and practical guidance on design, layout, proofing, printing, distribution, and publicity. It has been a positive learning experience for both of us, and we are so pleased with our beautiful book!

As an experienced writer of worship resources, I felt my manuscript did not need major editing. The Lilja team accepted my judgment but helped me with proofing text, formatting the book, and cover design. The team also provided pre-publication PDFs to send out to reviewers so we could quote from their comments on the back cover. Lilja also provided marketing help with media outreach and designs for bookmarks for both my books. I appreciated the personal interest the team took in both my projects, and the timely manner in which deadlines were met. I am delighted with Embracing the Light and all the positive responses I have had from readers.

Brad Robinson's Story

 
“The project to write and publish The Price of Victory and the Fear of Innovation: Brad Robinson’s Story was a long journey. I am grateful to the Lilja team for making Brad’s dream – to tell his story – a reality. From the research, interviews and writing to the beautiful design, they were patient, helpful and responsive to our needs.

While Brad is no longer with us, he died feeling gratified that his side of the story was well told. I continue to receive rave reviews for The Price of Victory and I’m thrilled that Brad’s legacy will live on.”
— Susana Robinson, widow of Brad Robinson

“I’m so proud of the book that Lilja created. It’s wonderful to be able to relive my life story with my family. And at age 95, I like sharing my memoir with other friends who don’t know as much about my history. I keep getting requests to borrow my copies of the book – I’ve never been so honored to share my library!”
