"If you want to continue to be a minor league author and/or publishing company then stop reading and go waste your time watching funny animal videos on YouTube. If you want a shot at the big time audience growth and income then run and don’t walk in taking Andrea Pearson’s Publishing Strong courses. I fully expect my business to double if not triple in the coming year using what I’ve learned hearing her speak in person and most recently with the online classes."
- Derek Miller, author of YA Historical Fiction and The Espresso Series
