From the President of Byelorussian Missions
Mel helped us with a large translation and publishing project; the first of our Ministry. Mel guided us along the way, helped us to negotiate with the printer, and even made a trip to Belarus with us to oversee the printing details. He saved us a great amount of time and money, and made sure there were no loose ends. The logistics covered several countries. Mel also helped us set the retail and wholesale pricing models and recommended fulfillment options. I strongly recommend him for any assignment that involves publishing or printing.

Mel knows. Mel knows publishing. Mel has been an invaluable resource to me as we have developed a multi-market publishing strategy. He has taught me more about maximizing Amazon than anyone. We have worked with Mel in the past, and plan to do so in the future.
