"Jennifer Sweete has assisted me with the writing, editing, layout, cover design, publishing, and marketing phases of the two books I have published so far, and we are working on a third. She has the patience of a saint and the education, experience, resourcefulness, and wisdom needed to guide anyone through any of the many steps from writing to publishing and marketing. She also helps me with growing my internet following, social media marketing, interviewers, and book reviewers, and has built and maintains my website. Plus, she's my IT person! She's an All-in-One or A la Carte assistant and a wealth of information. Blessings be!"

"Working with Jennifer has been beyond helpful. Her expertise has assisted immensely in publishing my first book and preparing my second book for publishing. She has been instrumental in this process and I could not have done it without her."
- Rebecca Hinds, Author of Mountain Safety for Kids, Colorado
"I would like to give all you budding writers an opportunity to stretch muscles you may not be so sure you have. If you think you have something to say to the world, but are not quite sure how to pull it all together and head it in one deliberate direction, then I must give you a piece of firsthand knowledge I acquired over a very fulfilling year. Jennifer Sweete is going to work your writing muscles. Jen will help you take your words, beat the fluff out of them and shape them into the story you mean to tell. When you have your time with her, be prepared, as there is no coasting, but when she takes you to the top of the hill the view is exceptional! She knows when and how to praise. She knows when and how to truly listen. Working with Jen, you will become the very best writer you can be. When you and Jen have completed your journey, you will have no doubt it was time and money well spent. Be prepared to feel a bit sad at journey's end, as you will find yourself wanting more time with her. She'll have you thinking about your next book even as you are enjoying the one you just completed."
- Diane Ferguson, US Navy Veteran, Ret. Sheriff's Deputy, Author of Undertow, Illinois
"I am a published author and a self-published author. While the first choice is easier, it has its drawbacks: a LOT of my time locating a publisher and the necessity of using their time frame to get my book published, not to mention that a publisher has the rights to your book. The idea of self-publishing was frightening, until I talked with Jen. She periodically reminded me that self-publishing was like eating an elephant, 'one bite at a time.' Her patience throughout the entire process was limitless. Her knowledge of editing and tweaking 'while keeping my book my book' was inexhaustible. Keeping me informed as well as comfortable through each step of the self-publishing journey was a blessing, and her sincere acknowledgement of my writing talent was priceless! Would I use her services again? Absolutely. No matter what type of a book you are writing or have written (but tucked it away in the back of the drawer because you don't know what to do with it), I suggest you talk with Jen. She is blessed with many writing, editing, and artistic talents, and can assist you on your publishing journey no matter where you are on the path."
- Miss Dee, Author of Me, Myself & Intuition, From Fire to Flight, and more, Colorado
"I was purposely searching for an editor to work with throughout the publishing process of my memoir. When I explained what I wanted to accomplish, an old friend recommended Jennifer Sweete to me. When we began editing my book, it became even more a labor in love. The time Ms. Sweete took with me via video conferencing across the miles, was essential to the success of an, at times, emotionally charged process. I can proudly say my editor was with me in every way. She managed to pull thoughts and memories out of me in ways that surprised me. Working online went smoothly and we were able to accomplish what needed to be done each week. Jennifer helped me expand my horizons and grow through what were sometimes gut-wrenching memories. I will always be grateful for her guidance and incredible knowledge of the editing, publishing, and marketing worlds."
- Doris Clark, Artist and Author of Rowing My Boat Ashore, Illinois
