What our clients have to say...
Ms. Victoria Holmes is a Literary Guru! I met her through a mutual friend, because I was in need of an editor, so I thought. Truth is, I was in need of a Literary Enhancer, Editor, and Encourager. God knows what we need and when we need it. I was blessed to meet Victoria Holmes aka Literary Impressions.
I sent her my raw manuscript and she saw the beauty, strength, and courage in my story. Although, it was accompanied by disorganization, repeated chapters, and a lack of clarity in some areas. She confidently assured me and said, “I can work with this, I know what you want and see what you need!” She was indeed a “God-send,” and we got started right away.
The encouragement I received was a bonus while working with her. She challenged me to be authentic while diving deeper than the surface of my story (transparency). I loved working with her because she is patient, kind, and a literary genius! What she does IS her gifting and her calling! The projects she accepts are not about the money, they are about the purpose...
My name is Takaya Poole, and I am so pleased to have been introduced to MTE. Kandra is the awesome lady who not only published my journal, but did and awesome job of making sure I received everything I needed and as well.
Whenever I reached out to her, she made herself available, and responded promptly. She made sure she answered all the questions I had, and thoroughly explained to the things I did not understand.
She walked me through each and every step and made sure my journal was published on time. Thank you Kandra. I appreciate all you have done for me, and can’t wait to allow you to publish my next journal!
When I first decided that I wanted to write a book, like many people, I had no idea where to go for help. When I found Kandra Albury, she was a true godsend.
The only thing I came to Kandra with was an idea. Well...really, it was my dream. I didn't actually have a lot of confidence that I had what it took to become an author. There I was, a 40-year-old single mom with very little time and no knowledge of how any of it worked. All I knew at that point was that I had a vision of doing something great with my life. I walked away from my first meeting with Kandra feeling like my dream was actually possible. Over the next few weeks, she held my hand through the process. I could see my ideas taking shape and coming to life. It was amazing! Kandra's knowledge about writing and publishing made it so easy for me.
Within months of working with her, I was able to get my book published and sold on mega-sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I've had the privilege to perform multiple read-a-louds and have been asked to participate in many community events. I'm happy to report that the requests keep coming.
When I speak about myself now, I confidently and proudly say that I'm an author. This has truly changed my life. If I can do it, seriously, anyone can. I'm so grateful to Kandra for helping me bring my dream to fruition. I don't think I could have done this with her. The next chapters of my life will be written by a real author. I can't wait to see what unfolds.
