What our authors say

We are incredibly proud of all our satisfied customers and always make an effort to make you happy.

Joe Rand

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

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

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.

  • Travling through Union Station in Denver, Colorado this morning. A bit too early to go inside, but it sure looked dreamy from the outside.

"So I'm at my friends parents house in Chanhassen, Minnesota. I live in St. Paul. My friends mom use to be a teacher and always has great book recomendations. She got me hooked on Christopher Ingraham’s new memoir #IfYouLivedHereYoudBeHomebyNow about a Washington Post reporter who published an article on the best places and worst place to live—Red Lake County, Minnesota. After the publication Ingraham found himself bombarded by tweets from residents, as I might add, in typical "Minnesota aggressiveness" arguing and showcasing the beauty of their hometown. Eventually, he convinces his editor and his family to relocate to Red Lake County for one year. And that's where I left off"

  • Happy Pub Day to our author Rick Crandall! 📚
“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
“I am hugely impressed by your ascents of the fourteeners and your approach to the book—never too late to find a new passion in life.”
Sir Chris Bonington, legendary mountaineer, author, and lecturer
