Megan from literaryinspired.com has been the answer to my authorship needs. As an author, I know firsthand the immense time and effort required to make everything work. Unfortunately, this often means trying to do it all alone, which leaves little time for actual writing and can lead to severe burnout. I found myself in that exact situation until I met Megan.

Megan has become an invaluable asset to my authorship. With her organizational skills and guidance, I have been able to reclaim precious time for writing while avoiding burnout. She has a deep understanding of strategies, marketing techniques, and effective task management that has truly elevated my authorship to new heights. Thanks to Megan’s expertise, I am now taking steps towards expanding my readership which I could have never achieved on my own.

I am thankful for Megan’s support and highly recommend her to any author seeking assistance. Her savvy approach and multifaceted skills make her an indispensable partner in the demanding world of authorship. With Megan by your side, you can trust that your writing career will flourish while you enjoy the process and avoid the overwhelming burden of trying to do it all alone.

Carol James Marshall

Author of Santa Muerte Series

OMG Megan, you nailed it. I LOVE the logo, and the colors are immediately soothing and yet engaging. I love love love it. Thank you so much!

Yvonne Tillapaugh

Author of Silence

The best move I ever made since I started writing was hiring Megan from Literary Inspired. She never fails to impress me with her professionalism and knowledge.

Rebecca J. Cole

Author of Emma Grace: Dante's Obsession

As soon as I saw Literary Inspired’s gorgeous colors and logo, I wanted to work with them. What better way to illustrate how well you know branding and the indie market than having a great brand yourself? I reached out to Meg thinking her company would be out of reach for my needs as a small but growing indie author, but I was thrilled to discover she provides many affordable services. I worked with her on the design for my new website (honestly, I DID NOT expect ANYONE to be able to pull together the different styles of books I write) but Meg managed to do the impossible and create a cohesive, unique, and beautiful design that encapsulates both of my niche romance series.

Working with her was such a pleasant experience. She provided insight where it was needed, listened to my oddball aesthetic needs, and delivered my website quickly. It looks better than I could have imagined.

Meg has such a vibrant personality and she’s become a valued member of my team. I will use more of her services in the near future and I’m thrilled to watch her well-deserved growth!

Megan Montgomery

Author of Morgue to Love

Highly recommend! Meg has transformed my website, upped my newsletter game, revamped my socials, and it’s producing exciting sales results. She’s attentive, responsive, creative, and action-driven.

Rachel Ellyn

Author of Alien Witness Protection

Megan is a gem! It takes marketing and SEO know-how, graphic and web design skills, creativity and more to create a unique website that reflects your vision. Megan got it all, and more. She revamped my website and nailed it and a logo immediately. I went through 4-5 people and a lot stress before finding Literary Inspired. Best of all, Megan is a true professional with immaculate work ethics. I cannot praise her enough.

Anette Nilsson

Oh Megan!It is absolutely perfect!I am about to cry with tears of joy! And your writing is outstanding!Bless you and thank you!I am filled with joy!!!!

Jill Underwood

Author of Billy's and Bobby's New Home

Working with Megan has been absolutely fantastic. She provided high-quality, genre-appropriate, eye-catching graphics that I am able to use across various social media platforms. She also provided engaging post descriptions that were relevant to my books, which were extremely helpful and saved me hours of time. I would recommend her services and I look forward to working more with her in the future.

Dani Antoinette

Author of Venom & Lace

Megan is an expert in her field. She is the reason why the Sanctuary has a professional online appearance, which has been invaluable in terms of our marketing and representing our cause. She is exceptionally talented and creative in her design style, giving our website a beautiful look, but also making it functional and user-friendly to our site visitors. We appreciate Megan’s pride in her work and perfectionism, and her endless willingness to assist us whenever needed.

Francette

Wolf Sanctuary

I am beyond happy with Megan’s help! She is professional and knowledgeable and knows exactly what I need at the right time. The website she made for me is phenomenal, and was done very quickly. She is easy to work with and has jumped on every task I’ve needed help with. Highly recommend, and I’m thankful she’s here to help me!

M.A. Cobb

Author of The Dire Reaction

Meg has been a huge help for me. She designed a one-page website and helped me build my ARC/Street Team. She collected email addresses, created graphics, and did whatever was needed so I could concentrate on writing. I will be hiring her again!

Mandy Sawchuk

Author of Bound to the Playboy Billionaire

I’m so happy I found Meg to help with my social media posts and Facebook ads. She is thorough and responsive and her design skills are top-notch. She’s always available to bounce ideas off of, and her knowledge of indie publishing runs deep. I love that she is proactive in sharing her thoughts. She’s truly a partner in my author business and I can’t recommend her highly enough!

Katrina Kyle

Author of Hale Mary Series

I love working with Megan. She’s communicative, punctual and always delivers high-quality content. I’ve been overwhelmed with what to post on social media and felt like my time would be better spent writing than agonizing over which images to post on my Instagram or what to share on my Facebook. Since Megan took over, my socials are much better organized and I’m free to focus on my writing. I highly recommend her services!

Anna Svoboda

Author of Whatever it Takes

Meg did a phenomenal job setting up my website, and does updates and new projects quickly and with great attention to detail!

Natalie Cammaratta

Author of The Falling & Uprising Series

Literary Inspired is honestly a treat to work with. Meg is extremely responsive, sets realistic expectations, and is constantly considering your feedback to ensure you are getting exactly what you had hoped for.
Personally for me, I set out to have a logo designed by her since my online presence is mostly through graphics and minimal speaking and/or sitting in front of a camera. At first, I think I was a bit unsure of exactly what I wanted. Yet, Meg somehow could take my unchoesive ideas from Canva and begin to form a logo and brand I could always see but not replicate visually. After a few more briefs, as she calls them, she came up with all that I could imagine and hope for.
Thanks a bunch Meg for all that you have done and I look forward to further collaborations in the future.

Julie-Anna

Debut Author

Meg is a pleasure to work with! I love having her support from SEO to getting my book out there! Engagement and sales have been up because of her help!

Samantha Shaye

Author of The Fall of Ahilon

Absolutely fantastic service, I can only recommend it! Meg has helped, supported and inspired me through our work on my first book. Any first-time author would be lucky to enlist her guidance and expertise, and I strongly recommend doing so!

Lou Poletti

Author of Gamebound

As a still emerging Indie Author, I feel incredibly lucky to have Meg on my team. She has seamlessly taken over managing my social media, the (dreaded) marketing, and newsletter creation. Her work is beautiful and professional, as well as well-written and edited. She just redesigned my website, too, and it's perfect. Next up--turning it into an e-commerce site. I can't recommend her enough!

Christine Miles

Author of Smart is Seriously Sexy

I've loved working with Meg over the course of my book launch. It was my first experience launching a book and she was such a kind, supportive, and patient presence in my life throughout the months leading up to release day. I chose Meg because, after reviewing several other potential choices for a PA/marketer, she was the only one to tell me that my book (which does not adhere to current big trends or super popular tropes) would be a unique and exciting challenge for her rather than something difficult to sell. Meg shared that she loves to work with a variety of authors across genres, and she is certainly a fantastic person to be on your team regardless of what kind of book you're promoting. I felt reassured from the beginning that she believed in my book and cared about its success. Her organized approach and timely responses took away a lot of stress for me. Meg also has a robust portfolio of work she's done, from websites to graphic design to marketing, and her prices are affordable + transparent. I truly could not recommend her enough. If you're looking for a PA, whether you're more seasoned in the publishing game or new to it like me, please pick Meg! She is wonderful!

Irene Te

Author of This Place is Magic

Meg coordinated my latest release - from amazing graphics and creative text to managing my ARC Team. She did everything! She did it perfectly!

I'm so grateful for Meg's professionalism, organizational skills, creativity, and astounding social media presence. I can't say enough good things about her!

The success of my new release is directly related to the time and effort she put into it! I could not have done it without her. Thank you, Meg!
