    “As a first time author I was extremely diligent about ensuring that everyone I worked with for this book process was qualified and trustworthy. After researching Ardre & 13th and Joan Publishing House, I felt confident in signing on to work with her. She’s proven to be incredibly knowledgeable, resourceful, and well intentioned since we started planning my October 2018 book release last fall.”
