Producing a polished book publication is an incredibly complex process that involves planning and scheduling, estimating costs, choosing vendors, monitoring tasks and meeting deadlines, making formatting decisions and setting up a production workflow, checking facts and ensuring quality standards are met. I have worked with the team at SoYou on a wide range of publications over the past 15 years and am constantly impressed with their consistently brilliant vision for a book and their thoughtful and well-executed process. —CJ Madigan, Shoebox Stories

I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your expertise, professionalism, and wit. You are incredible—and without your help I'm sure that neither that #1 category ranking on Amazon nor the IPPY award would have happened. —Bill Keeton, author of A Boy Called Combustion: Growing Up in 1940s Mississippi, winner of the 2014 Independent Publishers Award for Southern Nonfiction

You help people weave together the fragments of life—the broken, hidden and lost pieces as well as the joyous ones—into stories of wholeness that celebrate and heal. An encounter with you in any form is always filled with laughter, direction, and wisdom. Your assistance has been transformational in helping me make my work visible in the community and to myself. —Dr. Beth Mount, Capacity Works, author of Journey to the Beloved Community

Andy delivers extraordinary value—more than promised, earlier than expected. He is straightforward, accessible, resourceful, easy to work with. His ability to manage complex details, budgets, and deadlines in the work he does for me frees me up for other parts of my business. —Mike Boyce, President/CEO, Boyce Solutions LLC

Suzanne is a brilliant writer, editor and coach. Her insight into human language and psychology is deep, and her skill in helping others achieve their goals is vast. Working with Suzanne is a pleasure and a great gift. —Jeremy R. Geffen, MD, FACP, author of The Journey Through Cancer

Collaborating with Andy was a terrific experience. I find him particularly well-suited to the roles of co-writer, editor, and “anthologist,” as he has a keen, analytic mind while at the same time revels in metaphor and integrative, big-picture thinking. Andy gets the power of narrative truth and his breadth of knowledge and professional experience forms the perfect platform. —Ken Benedict, Ph.D. 

You have kept me on track and challenged me to be better than I thought I could be. You showed me where to make the stories stronger and more meaningful to a wider audience of readers. Today, when someone tells me “It was like having a cup of coffee and talking to you,” I know it's because you more clearly saw the bigger vision and kept the voice true to who I am. Your broad knowledge of the publishing industry has been apparent throughout this project, and I am proud to have you associated with my book. —Sue Holbrook, author of Faith Breezes
