“I have used Bonnie’s professional services for my book-related projects for over 5 years. She knows books! When I started writing e-books for my nutrition business, I had no idea where to begin. Together Bonnie and I brainstormed on content to add to my books and even the book titles. From editing, to formatting for Kindle and other platforms, to getting it all together, Bonnie helped me get my e-books “to print.” I am so glad I used her professional services for this task. It enabled me to spend my time on writing the books, instead of spending countless hours on all of the other tasks involved with publishing. I would probably still be working on getting my books published had I not used Bonnie’s professional services. I am happy to say that the ongoing purchase of my e-books are still going strong!”
