“Stephanie Barko is a powerhouse of activity and the most competent professional I have ever worked with. This is my second book and Stephanie is my third publicist, yet the most efficient and reasonably priced.”
Betty Auchard, IPPY award-winning author of The Home for the Friendless (Stephens Press)

“Stephanie Barko is amazing in what she can accomplish and I consider myself fortunate she took me on. In less than one month she obtained an audio interview, a regional magazine interview, and a national magazine feature. I consider that moving mountains.”
Sandra Worth, Winner, Romance Reviews Today Book of the Year

“I was skeptical that Stephanie would be able to assist me long distance. How wrong I was! Stephanie has been great to work with and has assisted me not only with representing my book, but also with helping me polish my image and offer my story to the public.”
Rosalie Hollingsworth, subject of OWN Network’s 2013 “Abducted” segment based on her book, Destruction of Innocence

“Our book was languishing for lack of a book marketing plan but when we enlisted Stephanie’s help, things turned around in a hurry. Stephanie also increased our visibility on the internet, which resulted in a dramatic upswing in sales. Our personal appearance schedule grew too, all thanks to her work and tenacity.”
Jim Boylston, David Crockett in Congress (Bright Sky Press)

“An attorney/friend recommended Stephanie, and his high opinion of her was confirmed as I worked with her during a two-month virtual tour for my novel, A Savage Wisdom. Her expertise and energy contributed to the increased web presence of the novel, which four times hit #5 in its Amazon Kindle category.”
Norman German, Switch-Pitchers (Bluewater Press)

“As our publicist for a first time memoirist, Stephanie was able to facilitate placement in The Huffington Post and our title’s selection as one of IndieReader’s Best Books of 2011, not to mention over 15 reviews, Amazon sales rank improvement, and invitations to private & public author events with high volume traffic. Seven Oaks will definitely work with Stephanie again.”
Laurie Jameson, WILLA Award Finalist
