What Clients Are Saying...

"Working with Dana at The INKfluence on our box's exclusive book cover concepts and swag has been such an amazing experience! She is so knowledgeable and has been an integral part of this whole process."
Emma Cook
Booktastic Blonde Book Box
"My one-on-one author session with Dana was super helpful. I was feeling frustrated because the advice I had received from other authors (just write more books and you'll sell more) wasn't working. After publishing 15 books, I was stuck at the same level of sales--next to none. Dana took the time to listen to what I'd tried and brainstormed a crazy amount of marketing ideas for me! She was so genuine and gave me new hope for my author career. I left our session with an improved outlook on marketing. Thank you, Dana!"
Michelle Cornish
"Not only is Dana friendly and down to earth, she is a book marketing genius. In only 30 mins she was able to take me from a nervous wreck about pitching to an agent to cool, calm and confident. By the end of the session I was really clear on exactly how to market my book to an agent. I knew the areas I had nailed and the areas I needed to enhance. Dana's help has been invaluable. If you are contemplating pitching to an agent I highly recommend investing in a session with her. You'll love it!"
