Inspiring Small Business: D. W. Harper

“Mark,

You did a wonderful job this past year as the FAPA President. To be honest, associations like this have been known to come across as “snooty.” This entire FAPA board has been helpful, informative and very welcoming when I attend the conferences. Your pictures show you having fun! I will continue my membership because of this.

I sincerely thank you, specifically, for all you’ve done for my author and publishing career.

I never anticipated my life taking the path of a writer/publisher which eventually turned into a small business for me. I will always be grateful to, Jane Wood and Frances Keiser, for all they’ve done and who eventually introduced me to you.

I’m a FAPA member and award winner per your suggestion to join. The inspiring recommendations and suggestions, (the networking) you’ve offered such as, school info for presenting my children’s books, award submissions, Bookbaby.com for eFormatting, and especially my wonderful editor, Jennifer Thomas, who did a great job editing, The Lost Twin have been spot on. You offer great advice through your own experiences, and I can’t thank you enough.”

—D. W.  Harper, Author of The Lost Twinn, Jace’s Adventures, and LOVE, GREED and LIE$
