“What a wonderful journey I shared with Ellen Hrkach. She coached me through the publishing process with skill and encouragement. I truly could not have finished the book without her time and attention.Ellen answered all my emails (many of them containing really basic computer questions) promptly and with precision and care. Most of the stumbling blocks I had to overcome were normal to the work at hand. I needed to know that what I was experiencing was the path of a lot of unpublished, inexperienced writers. I often felt lost and floundering, but, with Ellen’s insight and experience, I was released to continue on toward publication. I am very grateful for her professionalism and kind heart.”
Jane Santa Cruz, From The Smitten Heart

“Ellen acted as our book coach and prepared the manuscript for publication, for my aunt who had written a novel, which I illustrated, The Willow Tree, in 2013. She is professional in her approach and is very knowledgeable about both the overall picture and the details of “self-publishing” and I could not have done it without her help.”
Catherine Blake, illustrator, The Willow Tree

“You made my dream come true, thank you, Ellen…you have been a true blessing to me. I’ve enjoyed every e-mail, phone call and professional criticism with the guidance you have extended to me…my book made BESTSELLER in six days! You are truly an exceptional book coach…I give my heartfelt thanks to you, Ellen, for all your professional and personal support.”
JoAnn Termini-Pira, author, illustrator “Where Did I Come From?”

“Ellen has been my book shepherd recently helping me through the maze of self publishing and guidance regarding preparing a “professional” and attractive book and cover. She has also given me guidance regarding the essentials of online marketing. Ellen is the best in her field and she is an expert in self publishing! I recommend her to anyone who is a new author and wants to self publish. I am so grateful to her for sharing her wisdom and professionalism.”
Gloria Winn, author, “Tears”

“James and Ellen…were instrumental in bringing this book to life. As an experienced author and publisher of multiple books that promote the Catholic Church’s teachings on sexuality and marriage, Ellen encouraged and coached me through the publishing labyrinth and made the intractable doable. She also lifted up my spirit and gave me the strength to see it through to the end.”
Deacon Chuck, author “The Voices of God”
