Thanks again.”

“Jennifer is a true mastermind of the book world and life. I knew nothing about social media or the book world and, after 5 years of writing, I was only halfway through my book.

Since following her advice, I have finished my book, written several articles, gotten published with a 4-figure advance with the query letter and book proposal we completed, and my business has grown exponentially--and so have my profits. I recommend if you want success with your book and/or business you should hire Jennifer S. Wilkov, by far the best Book & Business Consultant, Speaker and Literary Agent Matchmaker™ you will ever work with.”
