Private Consultations:

“In one short hour, Debra was able to help me break through several years’ worth of writer’s block. She has a knack for throwing your brain for a loop with techniques more involved and useful than the plain, surface-skimming concept maps and writing prompts you find with most writers’ sources. They are useful for breaking through every bit of congestion you may run into with your writing. She is fun, insightful, and encouraging. Please, give her a shot! She is well worth the time.”  – Amanda L. Trowbridge

“Debra Parmley is a great resource and author. I scheduled an appointment to meet with Debra to review my first book. She was incredibly helpful with her knowledge and creativity as an author and her expertise in this field. Her insight regarding marketing strategies and promotion were extremely favorable. I highly recommend Debra as a wonderful teacher and guide when writing, publishing, and marketing a book.”  – Susan Saucier
