I was so blessed to find a man who could take my work and make it come to life, when he didn't even know me personally. Truly Harold McDougal is amazing. I really appreciate all the care he puts into what he does and am sure he has Someone greater than any of us know guiding his hands.
It was truly amazing how I found him. I had been trying to find someone to edit my book for eighteen months. I called a friend who had written and published several books and asked who he had found to edit his, and he told me about Harold and how to contact him.
Then, although I live in Maryland and Harold lives in Louisiana, the computer made us neighbors. We were able to contact each other on a daily basis, and he was so easy to work with. Working with someone trustworthy whom you know you can depend on makes writing very exciting. Thank you, Harold.

You can’t help but love your publisher when you perceive that it is a divine connection. Harold McDougal made the task of publishing my first book easy. He had the ability to perform modifications to an existing book layout that saved time and money. He spoke my language, communicating in a way I could understand. 
Harold knows how to optimize project management workflow and is current in digital technology. He has excellent project management skills. I appreciated how he pressed in and stayed on top of managing tasks, which resulted in good time management. I like everything about McDougal & Associates, from the project management to the website and international marketing strategy.

I have been highly recommending McDougal & Associates to family and friends, and I will continue to do so. People are buying the book. The title and cover design catch their attention immediately, and then, when they open the book and see the layout, they love it. Thank you for that. There are other books that I must write, so you have not seen the last of me. To be continued. God Bless You!

As a person who had only read books and knew absolutely nothing about the publishing world, when God sent an awesome man across my path (who just happened to be a publisher) I was amazed. I had never, in my wildest dreams, thought that my little book would ever be published professionally. I deeply appreciate all the time and labor Harold McDougal put into making it happen. He is an excellent publisher who cares about everyone's work. No matter how small or how large, he treats it as if it were his own.
Thank you, Harold, for making my dream come true. When I write my next book you can rest assured that I will be using McDougal & Associates as my publisher.

“Thank God for the giftings He has invested in His people. I wish to thank Harold McDougal personally for taking this book and making it say what it needed to say. Thanks, Harold, for becoming an extended hand to hear my heart and finish off this work—getting it ready for people out there everywhere. Your calm way of approaching the work is inspirational.”

 “I personally believe that every appointment we have in life is a divine appointment, and that describes my friendship and working relationship with Dr. Harold McDougal. When the Lord commissioned me to write a book, I was willing to step out in faith and obey, but I didn’t know where to begin. The Lord, however, is faithful, and He directed my footsteps in this walk of faith, introducing me to this mighty man who became my publisher.

"From the beginning, we had a strong spiritual connection, and that allowed the desired creativity to flow. I could never have imagined that what had begun as a series of teachings for my congregation would eventually turn into a powerful printed book, but that’s what this man made happen for me. The book he produced was written and then printed with a spirit of excellence, and I am very grateful and pleased with the level of quality at every turn.

"Brother Harold always goes the extra mile in everything he does, and he certainly went above and beyond what was expected to aid me through this journey. He made himself available, time after time, to answer any question we had regarding the whole process, and he provided us with an enormous amount of information that enabled us to understand every step of the way.

"Personally, I appreciate Brother Harold’s integrity and the joy he demonstrates in his work. This is just my first book, and we intend to work with McDougal & Associates on at least two more sequels. God is so good!”

“Dear Brother McDougal,

"I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding job you did in bringing my book to completion. I was quite pleased with the outcome, the book is doing well, has been very well received and the direction is all positive. None of this would have been so without your efforts. I am looking forward to engaging you on my next book project. Thanks again.”

"Several years ago now, while I was traveling with Evangelist Bob Shattles, he said to me one day, 'Eddie, when you get ready to write a book, you have to get Harold McDougal to do it for you,' and he went on to tell me what an encouragement Harold had been to him. Later, I not only met Harold, but we shared a lunch together, along with our dear friend, the late Ruth Ward Heflin. I never forgot that lunch, or the kind, gentle spirit that God has so delicately adorned Harold McDougal with. I left the restaurant that day in Ashland, Virginia, knowing that I had met more than a publisher; I had a friend.

"Now these many years later, I know why Bob Shattles’ enthusiasm for me to seek Harold to do my publishing was so important. I was not disappointed with my books, my relationship with McDougal & Associates or the professional and affordable manner in which the books were produced. If you choose McDougal & Associates, when your book publishing experience is over, you’ll have more than a superb, top quality printing; you’ll have a friend for life!"

 "I would like to express my gratitude for all your hard work, your insight and the professional manner you exhibited in the preparation and publication of my book. You made this journey very easy for me. I felt great joy and expectation rise up within me as I saw my words, thoughts and expressions brought to life on the pages before me. And then the person you selected to design the cover brought it to life on the outside as you continued to help me bring it to life on the inside. I’m sure that in the days to come many will be healed and blessed because you took the time to help someone who knew so little about writing a book. Thank you again.”

"Brother McDougal,

"I want to thank you for helping me get my books published. It seems obvious to me that you are anointed for this type of work. With my many questions, you have taken the time to successfully answer them all.  

"You certainly read my heart as you were editing my manuscript. I am very pleased at how it turned out. What a tremendous part you play as you intertwine with ministries around the world as they strive to keep the message of the Gospel going forward.

"It has been a pleasure to work with you. I would certainly recommend you to others and plan to use you again in the future. May the Lord richly bless you and give you much favor."

"I wholeheartedly thank McDougal & Associates and Harold McDougal for the guidance and expertise that was provided with publishing my book. It was a project that involved heartfelt prayer, in order to reflect our heavenly Father’s desire to spark the Body of Christ with a desire for soulwinning. Brother McDougal was able to transform vision and inspired writing into a devotional style workbook that is guaranteed to equip Christians to reach out to the world around them.

"I believe that the book was edited with a true motivation to maintain the heart of the book as it was originally written. Suggestions on layout and formatting helped transform it into a format that would promote ease for reading and understanding, whether the book is used by individuals, in Bible studies or by entire churches. With each step of the publication process, integrity and excellence were two key factors that were maintained. As a new Christian author, I was given the time and guidance that cannot always be experienced with other publishing companies.

“I think what mattered to me most about McDougal & Associates is their stated vision 'to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to as many people as possible in the shortest time possible.' They co-labored with me to develop a valuable written tool to equip Christians to further the Kingdom of God by stepping out in faith and winning souls."

“Commendation for Harold McDougal and McDougal & Associates:  

“To a first time Christian author, the idea of finding a suitable editor/publisher can raise anxiety in the heart of the strongest. This is at least how I felt as I came to the realization that there was much about the literary world that I did not understand and that, if I wanted my work to be readable and read, that it would have to be reorganized, rewritten, and reborn.

“With some trembling I approached an author friend for counsel. After all she had published her first title, which I enjoyed reading, and was working on a sequel. Without hesitation, she recommended Harold McDougal as the man to seek out. And I did that.

“My fears before our first encounter were these:

  • That the editor would rip up my work, destroying the spiritual themes, making them secular or worse, carnal.
  • That the rewrite would lose the essence of my passion and fail to get ‘my’ messages across.
  • That once the content was ripped, I would have no recourse but to go with the changes.
  • That the project would cost more than I could afford and more than the service was worth.

“I could not have been more wrong on each count. My experience has more than I could have hoped for. Harold is not only a literary professional but also a sensitive and spiritual Christian foremost. It took explanation on explanation, but he was relentless in capturing the heart of my writing and making it enjoyable and edifying to read.

“I consider Harold McDougal to be not only a professional helper and mentor, but a true brother in the Body of Christ."

Thomas W. James, Tree of Life Ministries, Statesville, North Carolina

“I have the pleasure of recommending Brother Harold McDougal and McDougal & Associates as a fine Christian publishing company. I was very fortunate to have such a man of God, as well as a seasoned publisher of his caliber, to work with me in the preparation and publishing of my book. Harold has a heart to help anyone who is engaged in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His work exceeded my greatest expectations, and his expertise not only blessed me. It now blesses everyone who reads the book.

 

“It was amazing how he was able to capture my heart, my life and what God has given to me and express it in the pages of the book. And the resulting message is clear and concise.

 

“At a more personal level, Harold is a well-disciplined, industrious man with a pleasant personality. He went beyond my requirements in the quality of the work he rendered. Not only were his services of the highest quality; his prices were also reasonable. I highly recommend this ministry to all of my friends.”

People who see the book take a long hard look at the cover and like it, and that helps me as I begin to share with them a little about the title and subtitle. Many really like the pulled words, and I do too! I’m soooo glad you made that addition. Everyone comments on the simple way the book is written; they like that. This evening a gal that just received the book, said that she was using it as a devotional. Another comment I hear a lot is: “It’s like someone sitting in my living room talking to me."
