"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."  

Matt Leatherwood, Jr. Author, Train To Baghdad

“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."

Sandee West - Marriage & Family Therapist

"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."

Lisa Beach -The Box Wrap Company

"I needed to update most of our marketing and sales materials including a brochure, a couple of sales letters, tips sheets and some in-house communications. 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."

Wayne Francis - Window and door installation services

"My advice is to hire Maria Pease to write for you. She is full of great ideas and will execute them beautifully. I have worked with her many times on several different types of projects from articles to websites and more and she never disappoints. She is truly a delight to work with. If you need a writer, look no further than Maria."

Ken Sellic - Business Owner

"I hired Maria Pease to help me promote my business and have been extremely pleased with her performance. She has developed all of my marketing materials to date including brochures, postcards, and promotional flyers.

Maria is a pleasure to work with, always energetic and enthusiastic about the task at hand. She continues to come up with fresh, new, innovative ideas to help move my business forward. She is dedicated to providing a superior product and has continued to exceed all of my expectations. It has been refreshing to me, as a small business owner, to be able to rely on an outside consultant to be professional, reliable, and self motivated."
