Blog Creation and Design
"It took me some time but I went through the whole thing and I also contacted the people at DogRead from the e-mail you sent me. They asked me to submit a book to them so I am mailing one as we speak. From their site I also contacted two more dog book distributors and they ask for a copy as well. All of this because of you, Thank you. I also read some of your Newsletter and it's so interesting. I wished I would have known about some of the things written there before I started to send out copies of my book. Thank you again! You made my day, no week, maybe MONTH! At the very least is a great Valentine Present!" - Animal Communicator - Dr. Monica, US

Again, my sincerest thanks and appreciation for a job well done. I look forward to continue working with you because now I know you have what it takes and more. With deepest appreciation." - Stairway To Happiness - Patrick Berkery, USA

Comment from a recipient of a Webmastering Services "Effective, responsive and impactful site "I can rate this site both as an author and a customer. Any site can only be as good as the person behind it. I found Hajni to be very responsive to me, as an author; I feel that she wants me to succeed, and she's been very generous with her talent on my behalf. On a practical level, I can see the referrals (clicks) to my website from Substance books, and the number is steady and growing each month. I have also used the site as a consumer, because first and foremost I am an avid reader. I found the book reviews concise and informative, the collections -genres- well defined, and the design of the sites well done. Overall, perusing for something to read was a pleasure."
