As this was my first endeavor into book writing, I was unfamiliar with the process. Melanie walked me through the process every step of the way, providing constant feedback and guidance on next steps. […] During each step she discussed all options and the “why” for each decision. I truly learned a great deal from this process with Melanie and could not be happier with the final products.
