"A cardinal rule of writing to follow is, never write your own back cover copy. Why? You’re too close to the work and can’t be objective. Enter Maria Pease.
I contracted her services to write the back cover copy for my upcoming novel, Crossing Lives. The only caveat was, my manuscript was nowhere near finished. Despite this obstacle, Maria took on the project.
Most copywriters won’t touch this type of project unless you can furnish them with a copy of the entire work to be summarized.
In a span of three weeks, with just a few chapters and handful of character sketches to go by, she was able to craft a masterful blurb that captured the essence of the story I’m trying to tell.
Maria communicated with me on consistent basis and took a personal interest in my project. This was a pleasant surprise. Most “work for hire” is cold, aloof, and distant.
I highly recommend Maria Pease for all your copywriting needs."

“Thank you very much for the job well done! I hope we will have an opportunity to work together again in the future."
Timo Kestrel - Website Owner, UK
"I needed a website for my new practice and I had no time or skills to do it myself. Thank goodness I met Maria through a business associate.
She had my site up and running in no time. She even gave me some suggestions on how to make some affiliate income along with the service I provide.
If you need a writer who listens to what you want and gives great ideas on how to improve it, call Maria. You won't be disappointed."

"Maria has developed a business brochure and numerous newsletters and has been able to interpret the information I give her into professional writing pieces that communicate to my clients the value of my product.
Maria’s professional knowledge has played a large part in portraying my
company in a professional light.
Maria Pease has been a pleasure to work with and I feel she would be an asset to any company in need of a commercial writer."

Maria took care of it all and did a beautiful job on all of it. If you are looking for a capable, and enjoyable copywriter to work with, you can stop looking, Maria is your girl."
