“Mimi was essential to the success of my books. She gave me instant credibility that resulted in invitations for readings at bookstores and events like the Decatur Book Festival. Thanks to her I was awarded Georgia Author of the Year (children’s books category) for two of the three books I published. I highly recommend her. She’s a dynamo and a great person. You can rely on her.”

“Mimi Schroeder did an outstanding job in assisting my co-author and me with the publicity and media exposure of our book, The 50 Best Small Southern Towns. Mimi arranged newspaper interviews, radio and television shows, and book signing opportunities. She gave us the kind of coverage that is usually reserved for established authors. I plan to engage Mimi again when I write my next book.”

“I’m quite sure that the professional proposal which Mimi Schroeder guided was a factor in my getting an agent and a publisher. What struck me the most about my work with Mimi was that she genuinely seemed to care about the success of my project. She threw herself into it with all of her professional skill, knowledge of the publishing business, and creative energy to produce a result that I was very pleased with. I consider it to have been money very well spent.”

“So there I was staring at 3,000 books in my driveway not knowing how to get started. Max Communications saved the day.

I’ll call you when my next book is done!”

“I have worked with Mimi Schroeder for several years. During that time she has set up countless signings, issued a number of press releases, and in general has been an active publicist in promoting my novels. She has been especially helpful in getting reviews and submitting my novels for awards. Also during that time Mimi Schroeder has scheduled a number of school visits and arranged for me to appear at educational conferences. These visits and appearances were very worthwhile.”
