My experience working with "BOOKS AND BUCK$" was AWESOME! Based on our short conversation, they were able to capture the look and "vibe" of my website beyond anything I could have imagined for it. As a result, my bookings have increased 30% and I've started writing a book devoted to helping busy women learn the art of self-nurture, and I couldn't be happier! www.MonicaCordelia.com
