BouquinBec Lison Dubreuil La vie derrière soi

“A dynamic team, surrounded by editing specialists and competent designers, gently guides their authors through the jungle of publishing, to bring their book to life. The CanamBooks team has gifted me a wonderful human experience.”

Lison Dubreuil

“The day I realized that I was providing services that would normally be undertaken by a publishing house, I told myself: I might as well publish myself! Not to mention that I get to keep my book rights and the royalties are much higher.

“CanamBooks is the extension and materialization of the author’s dream. To see one’s words made accessible online as in writing. Immaculate, high-quality work that is reasonably priced and respects the author and his budget. The author is left in control of his process and himself chooses, from a team of competent experts, those who will help him polish his work to perfection!”

Denis Boudrias

“The printing quality is exceptional, as is the team’s patience, for a beginner author always has many questions of all sorts. Impressive responsiveness: always the same day. Transparency when it comes to royalties, which are transferred monthly without hassle. Assistance with all other services (correction, bookmarks, book fairs, etc.). Very good service.”

How different are CanamBook’s self-publishing services compared to other companies?

Andrea Courey, author of Conversations with Chloe (2017)

Printing quality is crucial when making a photo book. I chose the team at CanamBooks/Rapido-Books in order to print my book Héritières de Bouddha in winter 2017, and I am very happy with the outcome. I could count on them for advice every step of the way, especially for choosing paper and the finish of the cover page. Business relations are always professional, courteous and reliable, be it in their attention to detail or in their respect of the conditions of our agreement. I encourage new authors to experience self-publishing, and to take advantage of the informed and trustworthy services offered by CanamBooks.

Jimmy’s experience

Jimmy Ung

Traveler, speaker and writer

How did you come to know about CanamBooks?

A contact from out west referred me to CanamBooks when I was looking for a partner to print my book.

Could you introduce yourself in a few words?

I’ve worked for a number of international organizations in the field of the arts and culture seeking to promote a more inclusive and pacifist society. All my projects are centered around intercultural discovery and learning. In 2015, I traveled across both American continents, north to south, on my motorcycle. From that was born a book in French and English, Panam Jimmy.

What made you decide to work with CanamBooks?

I’d have to say it was human dimension, the friendly connection I felt right away with the team when we first met! The attention they brought to my project was genuine, even though it was only still a dream. Their support bolstered me and gave me the confidence I needed to face the challenge of making a book.

What projects are you currently working on?

I do talks on intercultural dialogue, notably in educational contexts. I also talk about my pan-american travels. I’m also preparing my next adventure, which will be to cross Canada on motorcycle, from coast to coast!

What advice would you give to beginning authors?

Don’t hesitate to talk about your project and share your ideas. Writing can be a solitary adventure, and sharing one’s ideas and hopes can often help enrich our process and improve the end result.

Regarldess of the situation or the challenge, CanamBooks always stayed professional in order to help me achieve my goals. At all times, their team was available to answer my questions. But what most impressed me was their flexibility, their ability to adapt to my needs. I also share the same feeling as so many other authors who have worked with CanamBooks: the quality of their printing is truly impressive. In the end, my project was a success on all accounts. Self-publishing is also the art of team-building. One person alone moves ahead with small steps; a motivated team does it in great leaps.
