Here's what one client had to say:

"When I was first told about Marsha Malcolm, I had the impression that I would get my manuscript edited, and then [be] left to figure out, on my own, how to go about being a 'publisher'. To my amazement, I got a totally different treatment! Marsha made so many genuine suggestions about how to promote my book! I did not feel for once, that her links were too good to be shared with me; whatever she knew, she encouraged me to try as well. She definitely held my hand -- going even beyond the call of duty to guide me through the process of finding that publisher within me! I would definitely recommend her to other upcoming authors!"

-- Shaniese Laylor-Bogle, author of When TROUBLES Come... Trust Me, They Will!

With our guidance, Shaniese went from having a raw, unedited (though well-written) manuscript and a vague idea of what she wanted to do, to a self-published book in only two months! What can we do for you?
