Testimonial
“Marcella Smith wrote the “code” on how to properly publish a book, and so generously shares her wealth of knowledge throughout the independent publishing world. When I asked for a “reality conversation,” she was stunningly honest and truly supportive. Marcella knows books, believes good books belong in the marketplace, and has had a transformative impact on lifting the standards of indie publishing.”
