What Our Clients Say...


Teresa Barker, The Twelve Trees of Christmas

"I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Kate McGahan for all of the help and guidance she gave me regarding my book The Twelve Trees Of Christmas. I have always enjoyed writing short stories but never thought for a minute they would ever be published but with Kate’s encouragement, I finished the stories with the intention of giving them to family members. I sent my stories to Kate and couldn’t believe what she turned them into, the most beautiful book, she proofread my stories, corrected all of my spelling and grammar mistakes, the cover is absolutely beautiful, better than I could ever have imagined, she turned a dream into reality. She suggested I put it for sale on Amazon and to my surprise I have sold quite a few copies. I am now working on my second book of short stories which I hope with Kate’s help will be as successful as my first effort.  Thank you Kate."
