Rekesha's unique gift of motivation, coupled with the professionalism that she possesses is amazing! If you have a book that needs to be birthed, and you desire to learn about the book publishing industry, then look no further. The midwife is the “write” one for the job!

I’ve attended MANY writers conferences and book festivals over the years, and I must say, Tia puts on some of the best events out there for authors. She has a savvy business sense and is a fierce negotiator, which enables her to keep things affordable for participants. She is also kind, gracious, responsive and is always willing to go out of her way to help someone out. I’ve encountered many shady individuals in the publishing biz who are just out to make money off of naive, aspiring authors, but Ms. Ross is a woman of integrity who truly cares about the work she does and the people she works for.
