Client Testimonials


“Working with Callawind was a dream! Simply put . . . [our project manager] Marcy was amazing. When we contacted her, we had no direction, no design, no layout—we needed help. We ended up with a magnificent cookbook fundraiser for Robbins Hebrew Academy that we are so proud of. Marcy was always quick to reply to all of our needs by email or phone. We went from nothing to our finished, delivered product in four months. Remarkable. I would highly recommend Marcy and Callawind to anyone looking to publish a fundraising cookbook.“

Talk Turkey to Me: A Good Time in the Kitchen Talking Turkey and all the Trimmings

“Everyone always makes a point of telling me how much they love the cover design. That it’s so fun and really with it. I think almost everyday I just pick up the book and stare at the cover . . . front and back and think “Wow! This is fantastic!” Then I open and flip page by page and know what a great job you did on the inside work, too. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your work on my book project and how much I thoroughly enjoyed working with you.”

Maggie and Maddy: Adventures in Napa Valley

“Callawind helped us complete our vision for our children’s book. When we embarked on this project we looked for children’s book publishers that would be able to help guide us through the process of publishing our first book. We were so lucky to have found Callawind. Their online information helped us learn what we would be facing, and helped us prepare for the next steps; but, it was really once we contacted Callawind that we received the most help. They were very friendly and worked with us as new publishers, holding our hand through the entire process. They were always available to talk to and were diligent about completing tasks to keep everything moving forward. We would wholeheartedly recommend Callawind Publishing.”

Graceful Gatherings: A Collection of Recipes Celebrating Family and Friends
by the Presbyterian Women of River Road Presbyterian Church

“We have had glowing reviews on Graceful Gatherings. People comment that it is not like the typical church cookbook, but more like Martha Stewart, Williams Sonoma, etc. We chose Callawind based on the quality of their product, the various options available to customize the book to our preference, the price, and number of books (we did not want to exceed more than 2000 books per run).

Service was excellent. Marcy Claman worked very well with our cookbook steering committee offering suggestions and clarification along the way. Throughout the project, we had numerous questions and Marcy guided us through the various stages with patience, expertise and complete professionalism.

We repeatedly hear comments on the beautiful cover, the special touches, the photography, the overall design, and the recipes. Recently someone mentioned, “It is the coffee table book of cookbooks!”
