michael-mccarthy-02"Rob Dircks, owner of Goldfinch Publishing, is a connoisseur of his craft! Rob is a pleasure to collaborate with; he brings the utmost professionalism to his work, with an easy and encouraging manner. His editorial review of my poems was perceptive and instructive. With a keen and imaginative eye into the many facets of publishing: content, layout, design, and promotion, he made the process of publishing my book a wonderfully satisfying experience. Without a doubt, Rob is a pioneer in the independent publishing industry today. He shines like the brilliant yellow goldfinch in flight."

 Adam Rafferty, author of How to Play Stevie Wonder and other guitar instruction videos/books"Rob Dircks & Goldfinch Publishing are incredible and a joy to work with. The professionalism, good taste in design, knowledge of new media, reliability, and friendliness helped make my guitar DVD projects a joy and a success.

Additionally, they are always available to answer questions I may have about upcoming projects, equipment and basic "how-to" information in areas where they are experts. They've acted like a team with me, and we've become friends. This is due to the high quality of their work and expertise they've put behind my projects. Thanks Guys!"

Audrey Saracco and Kerri Haack, authors of Would You Rather?"We worked with Goldfinch Publishing on Bleeping Motherhood's book, Would You Rather? and we suggest you do too. Rob Dircks handled the book design with calm confidence, patiently answering our questions and advising on next steps. Working with Goldfinch Publishing made being a first time author a lot easier. Knowing the book design was in good hands allowed me to focus on important launch plan details. Totally loved the Goldfinch experience.”
