I have been a writer and an avid reader for the last 20 years. Thanks to my reading, I discovered a while ago the renowned author and magnificent human being Louise Hay.

I knew from the beginning that working with a company that she was a part of, would be a total success. With her philosophy in life I knew choosing her business would not be a wrong decision for me—AND I WAS RIGHT!!—six months later I was working on six books with Balboa Press.

Being a Business Administrator with degrees in economics, marketing and organizational behavior, I had incredibly high standards for my children´s books, and I was mesmerized by the incredible attention I received and the  fast response to emails and telephone calls. This was a really good sign that Balboa Press would take good care of my books during the publishing process.The fast response from Balboa Press, left me assured that I was in good hands.

My books are all kids books. “The Light of Andy the Unicorn”  is about growing up and being different than others. “The Lost Musical Note”  talks about how painful teasing can be for children and how unjust not treasuring teamwork is, especially when our real intention is to do our best and make the most of any situation. “Martin the Happy Octopus” in charming ways highlights the importance of felling safe, accepted and love at home. He show us how a strong and loving family bonds help out to overcome obstacles in life, with courage and optimism.


I could feel from the beginning that Balboa Press was very professional, experienced and responsible with a very strict work ethic, methodology and had order in every step of the process .

I feel blessed that I choose a company with vast experience that made me feel that I was in good hands all the time, and ready to guide me in this project so new to me.

All these gave me the confidence to invest in my dreams despite the fact that I am very far away in Venezuela and soon moving to Italy!

This experience has been so rewarding that my sister is going to buy three packages soon for her coloring book project!

So I truly, deeply, recommend Balboa Press for a smooth easy way to self-publish the book of your dreams.
