Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Aleksandra has authored Towards Creative Imagination in Victorian Literature, which Professor Zofia Kolbuszewska of the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin describes as “meticulous” and a “must-read”. Aleksandra describes the experience of publishing her first book with Cambridge Scholars:
“Once I opened the package from Cambridge Scholars Publishing and saw my book, so carefully and beautifully printed, I knew that choosing this press was the best idea ever. The whole process leading up to that unforgettable moment far exceeded my expectations, as it turned out surprisingly smoothly thanks to their genuinely helpful and professional editors. Their clear remarks and prompt replies, as well as a remarkably short time between the manuscript submission and its publication, all made our cooperation pleasant and effective. If I was going to publish my book again, I would definitely choose Cambridge Scholars. Thank you for the great job done!”
