创意圈是我全力支持的新加坡出版社。
 

陈瑞献

新加坡多元艺术家


When I was seeking publishers for my book, Candid Creation Publishing was recommended to me by a close associate of mine. Several other publishers also contacted me to offer their publishing packages, but after speaking to Kok Hwa from Candid Creation Publishing and understanding what they have to offer, I chose to publish my book with them because Kok Hwa really knows his stuff very well.

Now that Raising Financially Savvy Kids has been published, I am really glad that I made the decision to publish my book with Candid Creation Publishing. Two things stood out for me when working with them: The first is the personalised service that I received from beginning to end. With a team of publishing professionals supporting me, at no point in the publishing journey was I left feeling alone. Being a first-time author, coupled with the fact that I do not have an excellent command of English, the process to write and publish a book is definitely daunting to me in the beginning. Thankfully, with Kok Hwa and his competent team handholding me throughout the entire journey, I felt safe and learnt so much from them. Indeed, they live up to their slogan of “Professional Publishing with a Personal Touch.”
The second thing that impresses me most about Candid Creation Publishing’s service is that even after the book was published, I was not left with boxes of books to try to market on my own. Candid Creation Publishing lent their expertise by helping me create more awareness of my book through the media, and supported me in organising a very successful book launch too. Beyond distributing my book in Singapore and Malaysia, they also went beyond the call of duty by connecting me with influential people in the book trade to help me.

Although initially I had my own ideas for the book cover design and was quite adamant about it, Candid Creation Publishing was able to convince me with their professional advice and eventually did an outstanding job to overhaul the entire book cover design. As a result, I have received many compliments on the book ever since it was published and one of the frequently asked questions is “Who is the publisher of the book?”.  It was only then that I realised that readers do pay attention to publishers and I am so happy that I made the right choice.

Throughout the entire journey, Candid Creation Publishing has been very attentive to my needs, accommodating, understanding, and above all, patient with my progress. I am sincerely appreciative of their consultative and coaching approach in helping first time author like me.
Kok Hwa is someone who is nothing short of a delight to work with. He has worked with me in every aspect to help me publish a high quality book that I am so proud of.  Not only that, the project fits within my budget and met my timeline! Candid Creation Publishing has truly done a fantastic job and definitely over delivered on their promise. I could not have asked for anything better!

Having walked the journey with Candid Creation Publishing, I would highly recommend them to serious and committed authors who want to make a success out of their book. You will find working with Candid Creation Publishing a delightful and positive experience. To conclude, Candid Creation Publishing will publish my next book without a doubt.

My first book Leader As Coach, Leader As Facilitator was published by Candid Creation Publishing and the journey was a very enjoyable experience. In the beginning, Candid Creation sharpened my thoughts on ‘Why is my book unique?’ and ‘What market segment does it serve?’ These were invaluable in shaping the eventual title, content and presentation style; for example, Kok Hwa gave a very specific suggestion of including ‘Reflection spaces’ in the book.

The editing process was prompt and efficient and I loved the layout and design work by Candid Creation! They were able to lend their expertise and experience to first time authors like myself. Where I tended to focus on the content, they helped me expand my thinking on the cover design, the appeal, the synopsis and even advice on pricing. Kok Hwa even recommended my book to an MNC and that resulted in my first bulk sale!!

My book would not have been possible with Candid Creation Publishing. Thank you guys.

 When I was planning to write my book with my co-author, I enquired with several publishers and I was highly recommended to approach Kok Hwa from Candid Creation Publishing. After my first meeting with Kok Hwa, I knew I had found my publisher!

Apart from his insights and expertise in getting our book published, Kok Hwa is very good with his advice on what works and helped us to shape the book concept along the way. In fact, we decided on the final title of the book Everything You Wish To Ask A Headhunter after taking in suggestions from him.

After passing him the draft manuscript, Kok Hwa and his team worked their magic in close collaboration with my co-author and me and together we delivered a finished product that I was very pleased with. Kok Hwa also assisted in getting us interviewed on national radio and supported the distribution of Everything You Wish To Ask A Headhunter to every major book retailer in Singapore, as well as through Amazon store. He is just as motivated as us to make sure our book is a success. The best part is, Kok Hwa is just a great guy to partner with - humble, eager to assist, responsive, good values.

I look forward to working with Kok Hwa again for my next book !

Kok Hwa, I want to say thank you to you and Candid Creation Publishing to help us to publish a series of business and investing books.
 
In fact, based on your advice and support, one of our books Value Investing in Growth Companies, have been selected by Wiley to be published and distributed world-wide.
 
This would not be possible if not for your professional advice and your integrity to provide the best service and knowledge to your partners.
 
I would strongly advise and encourage anybody who wants to be a self-publish or co-publish to look for you and Candid Creation Publishing.
 
Thank you so much!

"Candid Creation Publishing did a fantastic job managing the entire publishing process of my book from concept to layout to organisation to research to pre order. Social Media 247 will be a blast under their management. Phoon Kok Hwa and his team is one of the best in Singapore for this job."

"Working with Candid Creation publishing has been one of the most pleasant experiences I have had. Kok Hwa is one of the most patient, honest and trustworthy professional I have worked with. 

When I first decided on writing a book, I approached a few publishers with the intent of getting advice and counsel. But to my disappointment, I did not get the advice I was looking for. Instead, most publishers were more interested in getting me to sign up for their packages and closing the sale. However, Candid Creation Publishing was different. From my first meeting with Kok Hwa until the publication of the book, the entire experience was extremely pleasant. Kok Hwa and his team were very responsive, honest and an absolute pleasure to work with. They provided me with step-by-step guidance, insights, expert advice and professional opinions that I was looking for.

The book publishing journey can be fraught with many challenges and obstacles that can discourage any first-time author. However, I must say that Candid Creation Publishing has helped to put my mind at ease and in fact, made this journey enjoyable for me.

Finally, Kok Hwa is a person who is very honest in his business dealings. He is a gem in today’s business world.  I would not hesitate to recommend Candid Creation Publishing to anyone who may be thinking of writing and publishing a book!"

"Publishing my book would not have been possible if not for Mr Phoon Kok Hwa and his team of able staff at Candid Creation Publishing LLP. Mr Phoon has since the start of my journey to publish my own book, been very supportive in giving me advice and ideas to realize my dream. When we first met, I remembered he told me that his mission was to help aspiring authors to realize their first publications. Unlike some publishers who are out to make money at the expense of the authors, Mr Phoon has always stuck by his mission. Even after the book is published, he is still giving me ideas on how to better market the books, both through word of mouth and the internet. Such publisher is indeed hard to come by and both my wife and I are truly fortunate to have worked with his team and partners."

 "For those of you who are thinking of "self-publishing" a book, my advice to you is that, you are better off working with a publisher who is not only good at what he does, but also very passionate about publishing. I would like to express my utmost thanks to my publisher Kok Hwa and his team at Candid Creation Publishing - he treats each book as his "baby", and I can imagine the joy in his eyes when this book is finally published.

  

He has given me many valuable suggestions and insights, without which, this book might have been a pale shadow of its current form. Kok Hwa has also gone many many extra miles even after the book is published which is evident from his untiring efforts to generate more publicity for my book and to push the book up the bestsellers chart. "

“I am thankful to Kok Hwa and his team for the great effort put in to produce this wonderful book. Not only did he just do the printing and publishing as stated, he went on the extra mile to provide value added services such as touching up on the book design, conceptualizing the content and layout, recommending a PR expert to brand it, providing marketing advice and arranging for possible seminars to promote the book. Great job and service!”

"I know Kok Hwa through a book launch and I’m blessed to have known him then.

Without him and his belief in my work, I wouldn’t have published my 1st poetry book today. As a newbie in the book trade, he gave me much valuable advice and guided me patiently on the process of publishing a book. 

With his encouragement and support, I am a proud author of my 1st poetry book - Be In The Moment.
Kok Hwa, thank you for believing in me and supporting me."

"I have worked with Kok Hwa on my first book called The Pursuit of Career Actualization I really appreciate the value-added services that Kok Hwa provides to guide first-time authors like myself. From drawing out my true intent of writing the book to the final stages of marketing, Kok Hwa has never failed to address and allay my concerns. I highly recommend his services to all the aspiring authors out there."

"As a first-time author, I was grateful to have the assistance of Candid Creation in the publication of my book. This has been a wonderful wish come true for me, fulfilling my childhood ambition with expressing my love for travelling. I must thank Kok Hwa and his editor for their many suggestions and strong support provided in improving the presentation of my book and I appreciate that he and his team had spent the final few months of the project working closely with me. It has been a fun journey and I would highly recommend Candid Creation to friends who want to publish books too!"

Kok Hwa is the face of Candid Kids and he has been very supportive in my first children book authorship. Johnny Can See is the result of our collective effort and team work. I am happy to have produced such a successful children's book, which got featured in Lian He Wan Bao, Singapore's Woman Weekly & HomeTeamNS magazine Review. He gives me great opportunities to bounce my creative ideas and to network with people in the publishing industry. I find that I can work well with him as he is more like a friend & mentor in this publishing world.

If you are thinking of publishing your book, then do not go to anyone else but Kok Hwa!


When I first thought of writing a book and shared it with a friend, he introduced me to Kok Hwa. Kok Hwa immediately arranged to meet up with me and during that meeting he gave me a complete overview of the writing and publishing process. During that meeting he shared with me so many insights about book publishing that I never knew.


As an author, you are the master of the content. However, there are things that could be completely oblivious to you from the perspective of the reader.
Having said that, I must say that Kok Hwa isn’t your ordinary publisher. He is really the bridge between an author and the reader. When I passed him my manuscript, he took a few weeks to totally immerse himself in the content and then came out with many practical suggestions from cover to back on making the book more reader-friendly. On one of the evenings, he even sat down with me till after midnight to restructure the contents of the book. I don’t know if there is any other publisher as dedicated as he is.


But the most important thing is that Kok Hwa doesn’t just stop at just publishing the book. After the book is published, he walked through the different strategies with me to get my book sales going. He is also currently helping me to get more media exposure via magazines, newspapers, radio and even TV! Just the thought of this makes me excited about what it will do to my book publicity! I can visualize my book hitting the bestseller charts very soon.


Overall I am very pleased with the service rendered by Kok Hwa and his team at Candid Creation Publishing and strongly recommend their services to all new and aspiring authors who wish to make their book a success.

As a newbie in the publishing field, Mr Phoon has been a wonderful "Father" figure, hand-holding me through the whole publication process of my book. He provided me with lots of guidance and insightful advice. Whenever I had any doubts or queries, he was ever-willing to help. He also equipped me with many know-hows of publishing and I sure am glad to have sought him out for my book. :)

It is good to encounter professionalism; it is absolutely delightful to encounter professionalism complemented with passion. 

 

That's my experience journeying with Kok Hwa and his team at Candid Creation.
 

When he is your publisher, it only means that your book will receive the attention to details that it deserves, and you as an author will have a smooth, reassurring and happy experience manifesting your dream. Delightful, isn't it?
