Aparna Anoop
Author of ‘IN YOU’
I have to express my gratitude towards the whole team at 16Leaves, for helping me craft this book to its final form. They never let me down, and always raised me to greater heights. I am also thankful to the editor, for her encouragement and dedication. Thank you 16leaves for giving me such a wonderful experience with my first book. Working on the 2nd and 3rd books of my trilogy, thanks to you!
Author of ‘THE HUNT’
A very big thanks to the lovely people at 16Leaves. You guys are awesome. I never could have finished a book in my life if you guys hadn’t set deadlines. You gave me a wonderful opportunity that lets my talent get printed as a book. You will surely hear from me in the future.
Dr. Anil Menon
I want to express my appreciation to you and your group for yours and their excellent work. Providing many specific options for the cover and the interior design, listening and reproducing what I had in mind, suggesting improvements and importantly being very responsive to my request. And all of this done in a short time. I cannot commit the same from the author's side!
