I can’t recommend Joanne enough to anyone who wants a professional, compassionate, patient, sensitive editor and designer. She also formatted my book beautifully and showed her incredible patience with my perfectionism for the book covers. I really didn’t know what I wanted, and Joanne stood by me with all 51 cover designs. I mean, that’s loyalty! She also has the gift to truly hear your voice in words you write and make them even better. My memoir and self-help book is intended to help all those who suffer from mental illness and, because of Joanne’s help and guidance, this will come true. She is extremely personable and has a contagious laugh that will put you right at ease. It did for me. I looked forward to our remote sessions, and I now have my first book published. Thank you, Joanne, for your talent and kindness. Because of you, I can confidently call myself an author.

Joanne came highly recommended by a fellow author and colleague, and, after seeing his book, there was no hesitation in hiring Joanne. I couldn’t have been more pleased. My book turned out exactly as I had hoped—better—and her designs for both cover and interior were exactly what I had described for the look and feel that I wanted to be represented in the book. Professional, fast, accurate, creative; it was a rewarding experience, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Joanne in the future.
