Matthew Patrick Smyth

The defining moment of my book was the day I met with Jill Cohen. Within minutes I could tell I was dealing with a serious pro. Jill’s clear, focused sense of the market and the publishing world comes across within minutes of meeting with her. She is a straight shooter who can see the potential as well as the pitfalls of an author’s concept and set them on the right path. Without her expertise and guidance I would never have a book. It was her belief that my publisher and I would be happy with the end result if we followed her advice. This belief kept me going and enabled me to finish. It is a wonderful feeling to realize that your editor is 100 percent in your corner at all times.

Brooke and Steve Giannetti

Jill is so much more than a book agent. She guided us through the entire process from helping us fully develop our book concept, to finding the perfect publishing house that fit our goals, to creating a strategic marketing plan and everything in between. Jill sees the big picture. She helped us to see our book as an opportunity to develop our brand. Jill exceeded our expectations every step of the way. She has become a dear friend. We actually want to write another book just to keep Jill in our life. She’s the best.
