Rick’s editorial skills are phenomenal. He is excellent at knowing where and how to structure content and materials. Not only that, but his creative guidance was insightful, kind and reassuring…and with a great sense of humor as well! As a publisher, his knowledge of the book industry is extensive, so I always felt I was in professionally expert hands.

“Working with Rick and Susan was an extraordinary experience—and I have worked with them three times. Their expertise in helping authors develop their manuscript into an award-winning book were evident right from our first meeting. Rick's editorial experience shone through, and Susan's exceptional design work went far beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this team to any writer with a dream to publish a book.”

"Rick Benzel pulled me back from the cliff. I was on the verge of going with either a traditional or boutique publishing firm and he (rightly) convinced me there was a better way. As a first time author, I was a “babe-in-the-woods” in all things related to getting out of the starting gate, across the publishing finish line, and everything in between. Rick took me under his wing and handled everything like the pro that he is: editing; copy edits; book cover and interior design; conversion to digital form, posting on Amazon and other platforms, entering of book contests, and even some marketing tips. I could not have been better taken care of and though I don’t know that I will write another book, I’ve found a friend for life. Five stars!"

“If you are looking for a publisher for your book, you should consider Susan Shankin, of Precocity Press. She has just published my book and I couldn’t be happier with the results. She knows what she is doing. Her work is meticulous, creative, and beautiful. We have had an excellent working relationship on zoom, but she was also always available by telephone. She was easy to talk to, listened to what I had to say, and was supportive of my project.”
