"I have worked with Kristi Hayes for more than a year. In that time she’s proven she has immense passion for storytelling and the success of authors, whether they be traditional or indie. She has an intuition with story that surpasses anyone I’ve worked with in the past. I highly recommend Kristi’s services for those just starting out on the writing path, for those embarking on publication, and every writer in between."
