A Year of Thanksgivings: A Memoir

Development Services

When the co-author of a Nashville family’s history wanted to publish under his own imprint, Dexterity provided publishing consulting for every step in the process, as well the perfect team for professional, editing, graphic design, and typesetting services.

Through the whole process and beyond, Matt and his team have been extremely diligent, responsive, friendly, and good at what they do. Matt knows his subject well, yet he enjoyed helping me learn the basics of book publishing in the twenty-first century. Through it all, Matt has had a sunny disposition and a keen sense of humor, without which the whole thing would not have been nearly as much fun.
