Good Evening


 I just want to write you and thank you for all the work you have done,  Im now reading the collection for the first time.

The local book store in Lagos is taking in some books and the lady there was so impressed that she will put some in

the window of her shop. I could not have done this without your excellent editorship. PS. The front of the book was

a masterstroke. It gives the book a warm feel, puts one in a mellow mood before reading. So again let me thank you

Your star will forever shine in my firmament

Dear Victoria

 I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to you for publishing my book, Cries Of the Soul. The books were delivered to me today, When I opened the box it brought me to tears to view the cover I selected, that you presented with an exquisite skill of professionalism. The quality of paper is outstanding.

      On a personal level, I really appreciate the time we have spent together. I certainly learned a lot about the hard work you do to make sure that before any words are put to print they are carefully read by you. Your discretion, honesty, thought, patience and unbelievable hours you work each day to produce perfect books is admirable. You make certain that what passes your hands to be published is perfect in all respects, which is by far a trait that few publishes have.

  Again, thanks so much for your enthusiastic endeavor in publishing my book. I have no doubt that it would not have been as beautiful and professionally done without your magnificent knowledge of book publishing.

Respectfully yours
Orania Hamilton

Cries Of The Soul



     I just want to tell you how much I appreciate you as a Publisher and now a friend.  You have made things happen so fast for me by believing in me and making me believe in myself.  Skyline is the perfect name for your publication because "the sky is the limit" truly when you have someone who is willing to help you get started in such a very competitive area.  I will never forget what you have done for me, how easy to talk to and accessible you are, and how caring.  I had basically no credentials in writing when we met and you looked at the writing and not the lack of experience.  You really care about the work and the writer.  You are this way because you love what you do and you do it for that reason alone. This is evident.  I can't say enough good things about you.  You have changed my life.

Victoria, oh my, I am at a loss for words, I received the book this morning, it is absolutely gorgeous, I LOVE IT! In the meantime, I listened to the voices on your site, www.skylineinternetcafe.moonfruit.com  and love your "Memories".
Now would be the time to open a magnum bottle of Dom Perignon eh?  I'd take a sip for this special moment...thank you so very much for making this dream come true...
My gratitude is beyond words, I treasure you dearly with much respect and love.
Thank you from my heart,

Outstanding work. I have just received the first copy of my book, Mas Raike P.I., and could not be happier.  I started my association with Skyline two years ago and continue to be impressed with the quality of your work. Without your efforts to promote new writers, there is no doubt that I would not have continued writing. I was fortunate to have three of my stories published in various Skyline publications which gave me the confidence to pursue my goal of writing and having a book published. The result is a testament to your dedication, professionalism and, in my case, patience. The quality of the finished project is of a standard that most publishers strive to achieve but few attain. Additionally, Id like to thank Yvonne for her efforts in developing the cover. It really leaps out at you.

Thanks again for holding my hand through the entire process. You have brought care and concern to a daunting process. The publishing industry could benefit greatly from emulating your methods.


Doug Maloney - Author of Mas Raike, P.I.



Words cannot express how thrilled I am with your services and the final product. The cover is superb and the text is flawless. The professionalism of WFP: Vic, Phae and Yvonne is exemplary. "Thank you" doesn't begin to express my gratitude.

I am super satisfied with "an Abstract Waltz."

I feel the ambiance of the book adds so much to the poetry.  The artwork of Maria Zeldis is beautiful. The layout is attractive and
Victoria and Phae Valentine make every effort for the books they publish to be perfect.

I have suggested Water Forest Press to several author friends, hoping they will take advantage of this wonderful press and the hard working
folks who put the books in such a visually stimulating format.
