“Melissa Rheinlander is one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry and always one of the first that come to mind when I need any kind of consult.”
Katana Collins – USA Today Bestselling Author
“Melissa is a wealth of knowledge. Within less than a year of consultations, my sales were up, I had an active street team, and an organized system for implementing promotions. Melissa is the reason for my writing shifting from a hobby into a career. Before Melissa, I didn’t know how to make my goals a reality. I had the tools in front of me, but I was trying to use a wrench to chop a tree down. Without the instruction manual, they were worthless. Melissa acted as my instruction manual and she transformed not only my career, but my life.”
Mickey Miller – Author
“When it comes to branding, knowledge of the industry, and basically anything I am wondering about when it comes to marketing and writing, Melissa is top notch. What I like best about her approach is that she gives actionable and focused advice so one can put it into practice.”
Captain Ryan McLaughlin, RPM Guide Services
“Trying to figure out social media for an industry not generally represented is one of those things that requires you to seek advice from an expert and Melissa is the best!! She went through the social media accounts and website for my fishing guide business with a fine-toothed comb and came back with easily followable advice that I was able to implement immediately. I actually go back to her report anytime I feel stuck or when I’m not sure if what I’m doing makes sense, so it’s a lot like having a little social media cheat sheet in your pocket!! If you’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed by it all, reach out to her. I cannot sing her praises loud enough.”

Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the business side of self publishing and author branding, she’s truly passionate about each and every client she works with. Melissa is 100% invested in ensuring that everyone has a chance at success but goes above and beyond what anyone could expect. I can honestly say that without Melissa I would have given up on myself and my writing a long time ago. We need more people like her in this business. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for direction and clarity for their author business.”

“A few of my friends and I have a nickname for Melissa: fairy godmother because she bippity, boppity boops our businesses. From branding, marketing and social media tactics, she swoops in and takes a deep look at all aspects of the self publishing world. I trusted her insight years ago and it changed my business completely. Recently, I asked her to do it again because so much has changed and (as I’m pregnant) I’ve been nesting each aspect of my business to make sure it’s all as perfect as can be. I trust her perspective to know that what I’m producing and how I’m interacting are cohesive, effective and efficient.
She knows her stuff and there’s a reason her reputation is that she’s the fairy godmother.”
