Look what they do with our books!

I was shocked a few days ago, when I discovered what Jan Ferrante did with the Making Soap… Naturally books. See what she’s done, Patrizia?? She’s earmarked them all!!! Shock horror horror, I thought to myself!! Jan has ruined our books!

Then I stopped and thought more… and realised what she did is possibly the biggest, bestest, most appropriate and rewarding compliment she could have given Patrizia and me… So can you forgive me, Jan, for not realising this straight away?

In fact, your earmarks speak volumes. They tell me you have thoroughly enjoyed the books and found some useful information in there. So much so, that you felt the need to earmark the books in order to more easily refer back to it.

It is great to know you’ve found our books useful. Thank you Jan, and may your soap bubbles never burst! 🙂

Making soap naturally books: testimonial

Our publisher just forwarded a lovely message from Joanna in Poland… and made our day! Here’s what she wrote:

Dear Ladies, I want to let you know that your books are GREAT. They are my favourite ones and I keep them at hand all time. I have many books about soapmaking (such a hobby to buy them 😉 but yours are the best! Thank you for both : information and inspiration – you made a really great work.

warmest regards from Poland (EU) 🙂

Positive feedback like Joanna’s really fuels our commitment to value-added content!

Our books might not have fancy covers or sophisticated artwork, but they distil the essence of our passion for down-to-earth, sustainable practices… and we pour our hearts into them. Writing about soapmaking as a life choice for a better world is not easy. In a world where futility reigns, with noise levels growing exponentially with the spread of so-called social media, voices from the heart (like ours) are hard to hear.

So thank you Joanna for letting us know you heard: we treasure your encouragement!
