"I so loved the process of acceptance to publication with Bateau. I felt that my work was in good hands--creative, thoughtful, bright hands--and that idea was reinforced throughout. Now I get to hold a book that is not just a book, and not just mine...but something really beautiful, a piece of art that has been loved into creation."
