Amy Ekins author of Nonplaced

 

When not writing, I am a full time project manager for a publishing company. So, I know a thing or two about what it takes to put a book together. I was so impressed by Alan’s speed and skill for putting together the proofs of my chapbook, and his use of space on the page was exemplary. We managed to finalise the chapbook in a mere two weeks, and I am very happy with the end result...

Julia Hastain (aka j/j hastain) author of how nerve-yen became the new yew tree

 

In working with erbacce-press there was the feeling of ease. I mention this because when dealing in the languages of books—there is so much that must be attended to. There is so much to focus in on and refine. I felt a true fluency with both Alan and Andy. They did so much to ensure that the process of making my book, went smoothly. Very professional. Yet highly personal—which is exactly what I needed in order to comfortably amplify my book.

Lynn Strongin author of Amanda Flamer and Lace-Circled Darkness

 

After thirty years of being published in North America, it was refreshing as a winter day or spring shower to have Alan and Andrew publish my poetry in England. There was no cavil over 'archaic' punctuation or layout. The format of both books is handsome and the cover striking. I feel accepted in England where the roots of my language after all began.
