What our authors say about us

Selena Fisk

Alicia has been a huge supporter of me and my work since I first started writing in 2017. She has encouraged me, guided me, and always paved an easy path through publishing. The whole team at Amba Press have made my publishing journey remarkably straightforward - including intuitive and clever design from Tess, and accurate and valuable editing and suggestions from Brooke. Alicia is a passionate advocate for all of her authors and I'm so glad our paths crossed when they did. 

Leon Furze

Working with Alicia and the team at Amba Press has always been an enjoyable and smooth process. Alicia's knowledge of the industry, Tess's eye-catching designs, and Rica's detailed and explicit editing made the experience of writing Practical Reading Strategies and Practical Writing Strategies incredibly straightforward, and took the guesswork out of publishing.

Deborah Patterson

It can be quite daunting writing your first book but when I first met Alicia Cohen from Amba Press she immediately reassured me answering my multitude of questions. Alicia was always both professional and personable. I have recommended Alicia and Amba Press to many of my colleagues in education. I look forward to writing my second book and again partnering with Amba Press.
