“I came to Vicky as a new author preparing to launch my debut title. Vicky provided 1:1 coaching on launching and marketing books, Amazon product page strategy and even provided actionable advice on two of my book covers. Vicky has strong publishing industry knowledge and uses her success to help other authors, too. I highly recommend Vicky’s coaching and webinars.”

Author Angelle Terrell

“Chelsea's wonderful work on my middle-grade project is paying off! I have landed a literary agent who will start to send my work out for national submission! I know that I couldn't have done it without both Chelsea's conceptual and line edits. They made my work more polished and professional than if I had tried to do it alone!”


Angelle Terrell

“What can I say about Vicky Weber’s author consultation services? Vicky’s invaluable knowledge made me feel beyond competent to tackle the self publishing world and the marketing of my book! Vicky has been generous with her time and has even gone far and beyond what I’d ever expect from someone in her position to help me. I’m so thankful that we crossed paths and I value and trust her perspective when trying out new ideas or revisiting old ones! Thank you Vicky for your willingness to set other authors up to win. You are a gem!”
