“When we first explored writing our first book, I thought the process would be incredibly difficult and time consuming. I’m sure that would have been the case if we weren’t introduced to Amelia Forczak and Pithy Wordsmithery. Amelia and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with, and they have definitely mastered the book writing process. We will definitely be using their services in the future, and I can’t say enough about how happy we are with everything they have done for us.”

– Chris Penasa, best-selling author; CEO, Small Business Growth Partners, Inc.

“Amelia Forczak is the best business decision I ever made. My ghostwriter, go-to marketing whiz and friend, I could not imagine embarking on another project like this without her. She was calm under pressure, always had a plethora of great ideas, and was able to take my rambling stream of consciousness and turn it into something beautiful.”

– Paul M. Neuberger, Author, Speaker, and Sales Trainer

“Amelia and Pithy Wordsmithery were invaluable to me as I embarked on creating a website, bios, and work session descriptions, and in revising my LinkedIn profile. It is difficult to write about ourselves, and Amelia interviewed me and made me sound accomplished in a way that I could not have done myself. Thank you, Amelia and team! Great work!”

– Peggy Leyden, Executive Coach & Leadership Consultant, Leyden Consulting

“Amelia has the tools, resources, and connections to help with everything we need, including editing, writing, website development, and marketing ideas. My partner and I had two disparate voices on how we viewed our offerings and value proposition, and Amelia was able to help us gain clarity, unity, and start us moving in a positive direction. She gained our trust by continually editing our writing so it expressed what we were actually thinking but having a hard time articulating on paper.”
