Just as importantly, and something that one cannot put a price on, you’re getting someone who sincerely cares about you and your project.

Author, Designer, Lawyer
"Thank you for the affirmation of my writing and for the encouragement and support. I can actually see this happening, whereas, before this class, it was just an idea that rolled around in my head. You have inspired me to pursue my dream."
"I am so grateful to have you point me in the right direction with this book. I sometimes get discouraged and want to forget about it, but something inside of me keeps telling me to continue. I don't know if I ever would have gotten this far without this class and your help."
"Do you realize how many people you've inspired with your classes? You inspired me to write, even though I'm the world's worst procrastinator. I don't know about the writing groups you taught before, but this group is wonderful and has so many diverse stories to write. Thank you for your encouragement, your sense of humor and your ability to handle awkward situations with aplomb. I enjoy your blog very much - keep it going."
"Bobbi, I would love to speak to anyone you have as a potential client. As a book shepherd in your intense border collie way, you've certainly fetched the strays, herded me through the gate and balanced this flock safely. I'm not ready yet, though to say, 'That'll do, that'll do.' We still have to close the gate after this lamb. Keep the eye, lassie."

"If you would ever like a guest at one of your classes to discuss any facet of writing and self-publishing ... I'd be happy to speak. I offer this as a way of thanking you and giving back. Thank you for having run your class and helping me become organized and coming to grips with the varied and disparate tasks of writing and publishing a book."
Paul Gubany, Author
"Bobbi is a detail-oriented editor and Ghostwriter. She takes pride in her work and recommends tweaks where they are needed. I find her easy to work with, dedicated and passionate about her clients and her work. She is my editor of choice."
"Hi Bobbi, I just want you to know that I have written more in the past few days than I have in a long time. I thank you again for giving me confidence. I always seemed to put more weight on the fact that I am not a professional writer than on the fact that I had a story to tell and that it has to be done in a way that is true to who I am. I think you and the class were just what I needed. Thanks again."
"Bobbi...you are terrific! You just astound me, as you do the whole class. We are overwhelmed at all you do for us, your energy and your dedication."
Spokesperson for Mental Illness
"I wanted to thank you for your class because ever since then, I've known for sure that I wanted to do something in this field. When students come to class, it's because they're not only looking for avenues into the field of writing, but also because many of us have been told that we couldn't! Being taught by someone like you is proof that we can!"
"Thanks for your persistence. I would expect nothing less. Your knowledge has been priceless!"

"Thank you ... (It) does make it less intimidating. The article is about how being diagnosed with cancer actually saved my life and made it better. I really do look forward to my expanded role in the world through writing. I feel very compelled to share the things that allowed me to use cancer as a positive tool which made my life much richer. Just need the confidence to get going and the focus! You have been a blessing and I feel fortunate to have met you."
"Thank you so much for your website and for offering the information that you do. It has already been so helpful and I'm only at the beginning stage of writing a book. I keep your website open while I work to keep me motivated and help me along the way."
