Joe Rand

Author

I really liked working with Julie and felt confident in the team’s ability to get my book to print within a very tight deadline. They kept everything on track with transparent communication, good humor, and ruthless efficiency. I am planning my next book already.

Jessica Taylor

Author of A MAP FOR WRECKED GIRLS

I was focusing my time and energy in all the wrong places and Julie’s approach to social media and time management skills helped me to get my online presence in order and build a following. She’s knowledgeable concerning every area of publishing and compassionate to the struggles of authors – exactly the kind of consultant a new author needs to jump start a career.

Laura Ranger

Author

Julie’s knowledge base is wide. Her guidance and direction are invaluable. She was able to cut to the bottom of the mounds of things I do that waste my time, and give me a clear, decisive path [to book marketing] to pave.

“It was amazing. A wonderful and touching book about the bond between a man and his dog. Once again we learn how wonderful dogs are and how they can improve our health and save our lives in so many ways. This book reminded me of another book called FOLLOWING ATTICUS. If you love dogs and want to better yourself, read this book for inspiration.”
Jolene, Goodreads reviewer and librarian
