See what authors have to say about the book video

“Wow! We’ve been amazed at the response to the video trailer for Writing as a Small Business. Barely 48 hours and we’ve had nearly 200 views at the different sights. Personal e-mails are overwhelmingly positive, “Slick,” “Right on Target,” “Very Professional,” “Fantastic,” and “Best I’ve seen.”

The editing process was excellent, the staff followed our suggestions and went a step further. Thank you and your staff for developing this vital marketing tool for your authors. As Writing as a Small Business stresses a web presence is vital and the wave of the future for marketing and selling books. You all proved it.” – Nash Black

I wrote and produced TV commercials for years and even won a CLIO, and I’m very impressed with your production! The quality of your work is impressive. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job for me!” – David Brookover
