I want your book to be its best. So, I’ve compiled lists of publishing professionals who can help with parts of the process I don’t do or specialize in. Don’t see what your looking for or have questions? Shoot me an email at mary@kitnkabookle.com.

PLEASE NOTE: While I’ve vetted the professionals on this page, they are recommendations only. Every author is different and will resonate with a different style. If someone on this list isn’t the right match, don’t despair.
