What clients are saying . . .

“Thanks to Valerie Biel whose guidance, wisdom, and invaluable assistance has promoted Weepers to more people and places than I could have imagined. In addition, her generous and kind but direct manner has provided me with, not only a publicist, but also a trusted and brilliant friend.” – Award-winning author, Nick Chiarkas 

“The thought of designing a website was totally intimidating to me,  but a necessity for building a proper platform for my book. However, Valerie turned a daunting project into an exciting and creative process. I love the end-result and so do my colleagues and readers.” – author Maryclaire Torinus (Hospice Help Pro)

Valerie is enormously creative and works quickly on special requests that come up. All of her services are a la carte which allowed me to create a specific budget. She re-designed my web page, designed new facebook and twitter banners, created book promotions on my website and even helped to re-write my back of the book blurb.

Working with Valerie is fun, she develops promotions I would never have thought of and always works with me, not for me. Working with Valerie is an opportunity every independent author should seriously consider.” – Rex Owens, author of the Murphy’s Troubles Series 

“Valerie Biel, of Lost Lake Press, provided me will valuable insights and suggestions as I was preparing my manuscript for Murder in Wisconsin: The Clara Olson Case for publication. She read the entire manuscript and made important recommendations for improvement.” – Larry Scheckel, award-winning teacher and nonfiction author
