"Marina was recommended to me by my fantastic editor, and it was an honor to work with her. As an author trying to self-publish her debut novel, I felt overwhelmed with the publishing side of the process. Marina, though, made it seem effortless. Not only was she communicative, efficient, and thorough. She also took the time to provide a big-picture view while sharpening the details. Marina was professional, organized, and answered any question I had (which I had a lot). She upheld her deadlines and was flexible with me when I needed to change them. Honestly, I could go on and on with all the incredible skills Marina brought to this process, but I think it is best to see it for yourself by using her for your next project. I know for a fact, I'll be using her services again for my next creative endeavor."

As the President of the Board of Directors of the literary nonprofit Pen Parentis, Marina Aris was instrumental to our current growth. She saw our value and asked me if she might join when we were still a fledgling 501c3 – and she has been a passionate and wholly effective supporter of our mission and our brand ever since she stumbled upon our work. In my capacity as Executive Director of a nonprofit, I know that relationships between Eds and Boards are frequently fraught with conflicts and power plays. This has never been the case with Marina. From the very beginning, she infused our existing board with her contagious enthusiasm and was always the first willing to jump in and do the work she required of others. She is inspiring, committed, loyal, dedicated, hard-working, and eager to adapt to new technologies. I recommend Marina without reservation. She is one of the truly good, solid gold people on the planet, and I feel so fortunate that our paths intersected.

"Marina Aris helped me analyze my website critically and resolve significant missteps. She guided me kindly through the process of reassessing my branding strategies, and she identified excellent tactics for me moving forward. I am so grateful for her help—I only wish I'd had access to her earlier on in my publishing process! She knows her stuff!”
