What the Experts are Saying . . .
Independent Book Publishers Association Review


Diane Tinney is a CPA, the author of several computer books and the owner of a publishing company.  She extensively reviewed AnyBook for Independent Book Publishers Association (formerly PMA) journal.   Here are some highlights of the 5-page review.

"Having a degree in accounting, having passed the CPA exam, and having spent decades in the accounting and tax profession, I knew that finding the right accounting system for our new publishing company was paramount.


"I continued my search, downloading test versions of several accounting systems for publishers. All seemed to do what we needed, but in one way or another, they fell short of my expectations. Then, searching the web one night at home, I found the best little gem in small press publishing: AnyBook!


"The first thing that impressed us about this system is how intuitive it is. Reminded me of the first copy of Quicken that I received--easy to use, powerful, and yet advance features don't get in the way of a novice just trying to get work done.


"Knowledge is power and as publishers we are often so focused on the facts and ideas in the books we publish that we forget to take the same care for ourselves in back office tasks such as accounting and financial planning. A system such as AnyBook can help you get a handle on your core accounting functions. Working hand-in-hand with a more traditional general ledger accounting system such as QuickBooks, you can have the best of both worlds for a reasonable investment of your time and money."




PC Magazine's Review of AnyBook


PC Magazine, one of the computer world's most respected informational sources and known for its demanding and thorough software reviews, has awarded AnyBook an Editor's Pick Award.

This is the full review of AnyBook as it appears on their website (ZDNet):

"AnyBook! is an accounting and inventory control system designed specifically for small publishers. The program very accurately targets these specific users with a well documented, thorough array of features. The form-oriented program can generate invoices, billings, and preformatted sales reports, as well as track consignments and inventory, although it lacks advanced touches such as import/export, email links, and flexible reporting.* AnyBook! is specifically aimed at small publishing operations, with functions for book returns, client mailing lists, discounts, taxes, and more. Accessible menu items and clear layouts ease the learning curve, as does comprehensive help and specific topics for getting started."  Used by Permission, ZD Net


*Since this review was written, we have added dozens of new features including email support, reporting enhancements, and export/import capabilities.  In the Professional Edition you can export invoice and sales data to spreadsheet, database, or accounting programs.  You can also export the entire invoice or statement for use in word processing or email programs.  The Advanced Edition has an even more comprehensive export feature along with newly added import functions.

Editor's Pick Award.

Reviews and Comments from Publishers


"I love Anybook software.  My whole publishing business is just a few keystrokes away -- authors, customers, titles, billing, royalties -- all organized in a fraction of the amount of time it would take without Anybook. "

Tom Costello, Word Association Publishers



"Anybook is the perfect answer to a small publisher's inventory tracking needs. The well-designed program is every bit as functional as the big commercial a fraction of the price.  And the customer service is exceptional!" 

  Kathy Steligo,  Carlo Press, California ( 



"This shareware program is the most powerful tool I've found for small publishers.  It keeps track of customers, orders, payments and everything else a small publisher needs."

 Tom Person, Laughing Bear Press, Texas (http://www.laughing

(From the Laughing Bear Newsletter)


AnyBook is very user-friendly and easy to navigate around. It is reasonably priced for the small publisher and definitely provides all the reports and information needed to run your business efficiently. They have wonderful customer service, are extremely helpful, and are always willing to walk you through any problems, questions, or concerns you may have.

 Betty Frovarp, Operations Manager,

Seven Locks Press (


"Thank you for such a wonderful product at a reasonable price.  It's the only one I found that does everything I need it to that is truly built for the royalty paying publisher. Several of my books have multiple royalty payees and this program is built for that possibility.  

        I started in the publishing business the summer of 1999 and started looking for accounting software that I could afford that would accommodate our company's growth. Once I tried out AnyBook, I knew I had found the right software."

Sandra Wellborn, CEO, Waltsan Publishing, LLC



"We find Anybook exactly fits our needs as a small publishing business. It is an exceptionally user-friendly program. The Help content is comprehensive and for the self-publisher with little or no business background a God-send as it not only explains what to do but why one is doing it. 
     The latest upgrade with its enhanced export facilities has enabled us to send orders directly to our fulfillment warehouse and for us, based as we are outside the US the currency conversion feature is a big plus. Furthermore the support available on registering is unbeatable. Using Anybook has made a very big difference to us. Thank you very much indeed!"

Amanda Goodman-Cohen, Nehora Press (



"It is sales tax time here in California €šand what an an easy job it is with your program. I just print it out  and enter the numbers.  I am so grateful that you have put this program together.  Publishers like myself are very fortunate."

Jan Thielemann, Hagelwilhelm Publishing Co, CA


"We recently received a gift of 65,000 pieces of artwork. Other software management solutions were very costly.  AnyBook not only solved the problem, the support staff were more than helpful in adapting the product to our specific need.  Simply stated . . . a perfect software solution at very reasonable price."

James Harris, Asset Manager, Fresno Pacific Univ, CA (
