Duncan, thank you for helping me prepare the speech I gave last month in Washington, DC at The White House. My talk, given before top school administrators in the USA and abroad, had to be special to capture their attention. My address was met with a roar of approval. Thanks again!

-- Charles Stoudenmire

I have little doubt that my book is being published by a major Christian publisher in large part due to the help I received from Duncan Jaenicke. Having worked on the publisher’s side of the equation, Duncan is extraordinarily equipped to create compelling book proposals. I recommend Duncan as a valuable publishing consultant to anyone with a vital message
they want to share.
