I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Dr. Fairy C. Hayes-Scott for some time now. When I first called her on the phone, after finding her publishing service on the Internet, she was very gracious and knowledgeable about helping me to produce and eventually publish my book with an outside publisher.

She was right there with me through the production of my childrenıs book, which included 45 original illustrations. Her illustrators did a fine job. Their work was creative and charming. They helped to make my characters come alive on paper.

Fairy was also my marketer and she doggedly pursued every outlet to find an established publisher for my book. I am happy to report that she found a major publishing house in India. Manoj Prakashan publishers are releasing the book with an audio CD, and their purpose is to help Indian children learn English.

Fairy, acting as my agent now, worked with the Indian publisher to come up with a most fair contract. I will be able to continue looking for more publishers for my work in other geographical locations. I am so pleased with the work Fairy has done. I am so happy to know that my work will affect childrenıs lives. After all, isnıt that what itıs all aboutŠpleasing the audience?

My heartfelt thanks go out to Fairy for her efforts on my behalf. I look forward to working with her in the future, as I have a sequel book waiting in the wings.
