I’ve worked with a dozen publishers over the years, and the best ones are those who make authors feel as if we’re friends with a common interest who enjoy helping each other, not just professional associates.  Everyone at Koehler Books has been warm, inviting, down-to-Earth and enthusiastic from the start, almost as if we’re all working in a family business and pulling in the same direction. Of particular value is their willingness to find third alternatives if we have disagreements.  Patience and flexibility in the world of writing is golden!

“A leader with extraordinary vision, a focused taskmaster and sometimes cheerleader, John Koehler crawled inside my head to extract exactly what I envisioned for a book cover—only better. A big picture editor with an eye for details, Joe Coccaro examined my book for impact, pacing and preciseness, bringing his crystal-clear distillations to my chorus of voices and landscapes. For me, the heartfelt attention I received from John, Joe and Cheryl was unexpected, at times delightful and ultimately professional. I predict that Koehler Books will not only have a seat at the head publishing table, they could very well dictate the main course.”

“Koehler Books published my first novel, The Vintage Club.  They have been great to work with all the way from editing to launch.  Joe Coccaro is an amazing editor, and John Koehler has been extremely helpful in getting the book to market.  One aspect that impresses me is their responsiveness.  If I have a question, John usually responds within a few minutes.  That is quite amazing considering all of his other duties. As a first time author, they were willing to guide me through the complex world of publishing, and even more important, how to market your book after it hit the press.  Koehler Books has also been great in creating an author group so that all of the authors can collaborate on how to market their books. I have gained a number of good friends just from the Koehler author network.  So far, my experience with Kohler has been fantastic.”

“The team at Koehler Books had a huge impact on my work.  They made the difficult publication process relatively easy. The editing was superb; far beyond grammar and syntax, it enabled me to connect to my reader.  John’s design ideas and execution were much stronger than I ever could have imagined on my own.  They made the whole experience meaningful and more than worthwhile.”

“Koehler Books deserves to be commended for its excellent work with this author. I’ve found John Koehler and his colleagues do what they say they will accomplish, and in the time frame outlined up front. From stories of others, not all publishers stick to their proposed schedule.The negotiating over book issues proves valuable as we have come out with a better product because we listen to each other. So yes, I am happy to refer other potential and actual authors to Koehler without reservation. And I look forward to working again with John and his team.”

Bruce Jones

“I met John Köehler about two years ago through mutual friends. Having just put the wraps on my first novel I was nervous and anxious to ship my baby off to agents, publishers or just about anybody that would give me an honest opinion. I wasn’t quite sure a local indie publisher, and the many pitfalls I had learned of them, would fit into my already busy life. From day one John impressed me with his confidence, not only to deliver a great product, but to get national distribution as well. Working with Joe Coccaro and his team, I gained more insight into editing than I had imagined and have been able to implement the knowledge into my upcoming novel. Overall, my experience with John and Joe has been great. As I neared completion of my second novel, there was never a question as to where I would send it for publication. As Köehlerbooks continues to grow, I am certain it’s authors will reap the many benefits of the hard work and dedication it’s founders have staved to attain.”

The adventure continues as I am now a published author with a great tool to promote my non-profit as well as a being a writer.  I continue to write to this day and will no doubt publish again.  I will not hesitate to work with Koehlerbooks and John Koehler.“

“The publishing world of Koehlerbooks has been a great experience for this first time author. John Koehler took me under his wing and turned my dream into a beautiful book. He was there for me every step of the way (and the steps are too numerous to count!). The second half of this great team, and every bit as important, are the editors, Joe Coccaro and Cheryl Ross. While John made my book shine on the outside, Joe and Cheryl worked their editorial magic from the prologue to the acknowledgements.”

"Koehler Books provides two very important functions for writers: first-rate book design and excellent editorial sense. I was pleased to have publisher John Koehler craft my authors’ covers and mine as well. The charm of each cover reflects both the commercial and the aesthetic, twin goals of the publishing world. Executive editor Joe Coccaro takes a nearly perfect manuscript and, with the author’s input, finishes each page with elegance and precision. As a literary agent and writer, I have great respect for the team at Koehler Books."

“While lost in transition and searching for a home to land some ground breaking book ideas that were outside of my pigeonhole of ‘urban fiction’, Koehler Books became my new home to create an international thriller series with a new charismatic, American hero as well as an upcoming Young Adult series all about the insane world of popular brand sneakers. However, without Koehler Books, both ideas of mine would have been stuck in production hell or offered only as ebook reads. So I thank my new publishers for having the bravery and creative vision to see something new, exciting and different and go for it to add to the national book store shelves for thousands of readers who still love to explore new and worthy material about all of the wonderful and different experiences in life.”

“Koehler Books has been everything a writer hopes for in a publishing company. All my correspondence with staff has been addressed promptly. An upbeat tone and pleasant humor permeates all email, teleconference, phone, and other interactions. The design team created a book cover for Refuge that got it exactly right. The editorial staff helped me to produce a final product that is truly a work of art. There was give and take and open communication of expectations and ideas for both design and editing. Joe Coccaro was my editor, and I hope to work with him on everything I write! He is a good communicator and completed a great, productive edit on Refuge. It has been a privilege to have John Koehler as my publisher. He helped me to let go of my “baby” and ushered my novel through every step toward publication including all final decisions. He always kept me informed. I knew exactly what to expect. Koehler Books’ marketing information helped prepare me to promote my novel. My experience with Koehler Books has been everything I ever dreamed and hoped for when I began to seek publication. I highly recommend this publishing house to any author.”

“I’ve never been the sort of person to stand up and make noise, literally or figuratively. I enjoy making my quiet way through life, though occasionally I am overlooked. It’s a loud world we live in, and when your loudest voice is only audible in the imaginations of readers, you can’t expect to be heard without some help. I thought I would never find the help I needed. So, naturally, it was dropped right in my lap. A few years ago, in what I would call a “Goddishly Inspired Event,” John Koehler heard my voice, and decided that other people needed to hear it, too. He helped me publish my first book, though I sent him the manuscript by accident, trying to enter a writing contest with a document far in excess of the word limit. I am very grateful for the chance I was given, and grateful to have my novel out there in the world, shouting a message to all who choose to read it. Thank you, John Koehler and Koehler Books, for handing me the literary bullhorn.”

The finished product, my book, is a work of art on the outside and so much better than it was before they partnered with me on the inside. At no point did I feel like I was “just a number.” They listened to all my ideas. While I didn’t “get my own way” all the time, I was always provided with detailed explanations for the decisions made—the process was an invaluable learning experience. I am a better writer because of my partnership with Köehler Books.”

Working with Koehler Books is a pleasure. John and Joe are very helpful and accessible. I’m happy to be a part of their author team.

Writing a book is one thing — getting it self-published is a mind-boggling process, like facing a maze with 1,000 paths and trying to figure out which one to take to get to the end.  Rather than lose my mind, I decided to contact a publisher listed on the IngramSpark website.  I called and was surprised that the president, John Koehler himself, answered the phone.  All of my anxiety vanished at once.  John put me completely at ease in a caring, honest and humorous way.  He made me feel important; he valued my opinion…he never talked to me as if he knew better than me what I needed to do.  John is very skilled at getting past the professional role and just being a great guy who knows how to build a relationship.  That to me is more important than anything.  Thank you John Koehler for your caring support and expertise.  I am thrilled with the way it all turned out.
