"She brought my idea to life in a way that completely surpassed my expectations."

From our first meeting, I knew I had found someone who could truly help bring my dreams into a reality that I wasn’t even capable of imagining! Melinda listened, shared amazing ideas, was timely in her responses, and to say she knocked it out of the park with her creativity would be a massive understatement. She absolutely brought my idea to life in a way that completely surpassed not just my expectations but also my hopes. As a bonus, she was darn fun to work with, too! I can’t recommend her highly enough.

"She saves you time, money, and hair-pulling. If you're looking for the best of the best, it's Melinda Martin."

I’ve worked with Melinda Martin since 2017, and I am not exaggerating when I say that she has saved me (and my clients) time, money, and hair-pulling. After 12 years in the publishing industry, I have yet to find anyone who matches her caliber. She is a bona fide expert who goes above and beyond for authors. Her skill set is truly unmatched, and I’ve had to come to her countless times to save my authors after designers, formatters, and project managers just didn’t cut it. And she always saves the day! If you’re looking for the best of the best, it’s Melinda Martin.

"Melinda is a key part of a process that gives my clients their best chance of success."

Melinda is one of the very professional service providers that I recommend at every opportunity. She’s the perfect mix of speed, customer service and precision – I know when I send one of my author clients to her, I’ll get their file quickly and they’ll be spot-on correct every single time. It makes life a lot easier for me and for the printers, which saves time and money for everyone. Melinda is a key part of a process that gives my clients their best chance of success!
