At a time when I desperately needed a great editor, faith stepped in and brought Mary into my life. I like to think that writers tell great stories. But editors are the ones who step in to make the story into a good book and this is exactly what working with Mary does. She is wonderful as an editor, motivator and exactly what a writer like me needed. I can’t wait to work with her on my next project.
I just wanted to let you know that Donald and I feel, that you are a God send and that it was nothing but God that directed me to your website. We are pleased with your performance, you are a woman of integrity and you stand behind your work. We are excited and, happy to have meet you. Your work is very professional and we couldn’t be more pleased with your performance thus far. Thank you!
I came to you, just as I had the rest of the urban fiction editors I’d searched for online—green to the literary world and equipped with an unpolished manuscript. I expressed my nervousness about sharing my untold story to the rest of the world and your reassuring tone gave me comfort to do so. The authenticity in your words was riveting to my soul. Without ever discussing business, we were able to speak for hours about a shared passion, to break the negative denotation that most correlate with the term “urban” fiction. I want to personally thank you for not only seeing my vision, but also turning it into a reality. I am proud to say that my first self-published book was edited by you! If I thanked you a thousand times, it would not be enough! Your essence is truly immeasurable! Peace and blessings to a true game changer…-Shyla Myles Author of Broken Promises
