Below are just a few of the testimonials from people I have
worked with personally. Some of these came from authors, non
profits or workshop attendees. As you will see from the
"I am as serious as a heart attack
about seeing that you are successful
and if you are HALF as serious
as I am about your success,
we are an unstoppable force!" Bonnie Marlewski-Probert
From A Few Of Our Authors:
"Bonnie approaches her clients with unsurpassed
energy and presents unique ideas customized for
success in promoting and expanding businesses and
careers. She taught me to stay alert to all options
when marketing my book and identifying speaking
engagements. Her mentoring style allowed me to focus
my energy and open my eyes to opportunities that
were right in front of me. She is a wealth of knowledge
and sincerely interested in your success - a rare
combination!! She's a gem!" Dena Mangiamele,

"Like several people I know, I've had some half-baked
ideas for a couple of books cooking for a long time but
could never manage to actually stick the fork in and
pronounce them "done." Then I bumped into Bonnie
Marlewski-Probert at Whitehall Publishing who was
putting together some short stories. I found her so
easy to work with and that project turned out so well
that I decided to take her up on her offer to bring one
of my own books to life, which is one of the best
decisions I've ever made.
Lists of weekly tasks? Check. Releases and other legal
documents? Check. A marketing plan to promote the
book once it's finished? Check. Bonnie patiently and
painstakingly provided guidance in these areas as well
as in book and chapter organization, obtaining bids
from printers, and in many other facets of publishing
that I had no idea even existed. Through her
experience, she was able to skillfully guide me through
the entire process, beginning to end, in a way that
empowered me and resulted in a book that I
can be proud of. I can't wait to start book number two!

"I am a first time author and recently completed my
book, "One Brain Injury will Change Your Mind!" My
publisher is Bonnie Marlewski-Probert of Whitehall
Publishing Inc. and I wanted to write this testimonial to
express my gratitude for her guidance and my
appreciation for the exceptional step-by-step service
There is a lot that goes into preparing, editing and
finally publishing a book - way more than I ever
anticipated! I know I could never have accomplished
this without Bonnie's amazing insight and expertise.
Her feedback was always constructive and very
positive. Her suggestions and recommendations were
always just that... suggestions and recommendations!
She constantly reminded me that it was my book and I
had the final say in it. 99.99% of the time I was in
absolute agreement with her comments, edits and
Bonnie is so very patient, accommodating, articulate
and well versed in all aspects of publishing, which
makes her such a pleasure and a delight to deal with.
A true professional in every sense of the word. She
went above and beyond for me and I learnt so much
from her, making this adventure an amazing
experience! I thought I was very special getting this
amazing treatment from Bonnie and yet I have come to
find out that she treats every one of her clients in the
same impeccable way!
Her positive upbeat attitude, her commitment to
communicate and her step-by-step publication process,
encouraged me to keep on writing and ultimately
publish a book that I am extremely proud of.
Whitehall Publishing Inc. designed the cover of my
book, assisted in getting all the pre-publication reviews
that were printed on the back cover, did the editing
and layout of all the chapters in addition to everything
else they did to make my book look super spectacular.
I have had such wonderful feedback on my book and I
know if I decide to write another book, there is
absolutely only one place I will go... Whitehall
Publishing Inc. with Bonnie Marlewski-Probert.
I would encourage all authors, first time or seasoned
writers, to connect with Bonnie and Whitehall
Publishing Inc., to experience the royal treatment on
your next publication! My heartfelt appreciation,
gratitude and thanks to Bonnie and Whitehall

By God's Providence. "We very much appreciated your dedication to achieving that goal, and all that
you did to make that happen -- while staying within our budget!!
More than that, however, I cannot begin to tell you how much your knowledge of the publishing process
and your attention to every detail meant to us (me AND the sisters!).
You were so thorough, not only in answering all our questions, but also offering suggestions, ideas,
options, etc., that we had not thought of. And you were able to remain composed (even optimistic!) and
focused when we threw you some major curves.
The book is beautiful; everyone is extremely pleased -- and I do not believe we could have ended up
with this wonderful product without you. I will be recommending you to anyone and everyone who asks
how to get a book published. If you ever need a reference, let me know!" Jean Merry, By God's
Providence, The Sisters of St. Francis, Wisconsin.
Pablo’s Art Adventures – Exploring the Studio "is a dream-come-true for me. After retiring from a
31-year career as a teacher, my book had been on paper, complete with illustrations, for a couple of
years. Now, I thought, was my opportunity to get it published and on the market. Looking down the list of
children’s book publishers on the internet was quite overwhelming! There were thousands of them! Then
a friend of my sister-in-law recommended I contact Bonnie Marlewski-Probert at Whitehall Publishing.
Bonnie was great! She never tired of answering question upon question and explaining the printing
process step by step to me. She is forever patient and is a treasure chest of knowledge about the
publishing business. I kept every email as we went through each step for future reference. Bonnie was
there showing me the ropes all the way from accepting the printer bid to receiving that real book with my
name on it. What an exciting moment that was!" Mona Larkins, Pablo's Art Adventures.
Dear Grandchild, When You Come for a Visit. "Recently I received the shipment of my second book
Dear Grandchild, When You Come for a Visit (written by a friend and illustrated by me) and the thrill
continues! I hope to do business with Bonnie many more times in the future. She is an answer to my
prayers for direction and now seems like an old family friend." Mona Larkins, illustrator, Dear
Grandchild, When You Come for a Visit.
Dear Grandchild, When You Come for a Visit. "About a year ago I decided I wanted to publish my
thoughts and dreams on becoming a grandmother. A friend agreed to illustrate the book for me and we
started working together. My friend, who had published a book with Whitehall Publishing, gave me the
name of Bonnie Marlewski-Probert and I contacted her. I found Bonnie to be very helpful and extremely
knowledgeable in all areas of publishing. She answered all my questions and was very patient with my
lack of experience. Working together with my experienced friend and with Bonnie at Whitehall, made it
possible for me to publish my book. The book, Dear Grandchild, When You Come for a Visit... is selling
very well in our community, and in other areas, as well. Working with Bonnie and Whitehall Publishing
was a wonderful experience and I am looking forward to publishing my next book with their help." Linda
Robinson, author Dear Grandchild, When You Come for a Visit.
Dear Dolly."It was my first experience with publishing, but every question - no matter how big or small
was answered to my satisfaction. The process was made painless by the way that I was guided through
the steps involved. I know without a doubt that the book was better than I expected because of this
process." Emily Lineberger Bridges, Dear Dolly.
Lessons in Grace. "Thanks again, a million times. You've been wonderful to work with." Kathleen
Anthony, Lessons In Grace.
"I am pleased to highly recommend Bonnie Marlewski-Probert as an Author, a provider of Author
Services, and as an Inspirational Speaker and Business Coach. Bonnie originally hired me to
investigate speaking opportunities for her.
Little did I know that she would help me as much, if not more, than I would help her! During a phone call,
Bonnie recommended some simple changes that I could make to my marketing business that would
totally enhance what I had been doing. She reminded me that the knowledge that I have accumulated
over many years is worth money and that I ought to clearly communicate on my website that I do phone
and email consultations for a fee.
Once I followed her advice, not only did I end up with more clients than I could handle, but I discovered a
new confidence in and excitement about my business.
In addition, Bonnie's recommendations have led me down many fresh paths in my work and have
introduced me to plenty of amazing contacts - all from a single phone call!" ~ Carol M. Upton, Dreams

"Bonnie Marlewski-Probert, President of Whitehall Publishing has the unique ability to help people
become aware of how they are hurting themselves without even knowing it.
As a professional executive for over 35 years, it took Bonnie two hours to basically allow me to see past
my negative feelings and reach far within me to the person I was before all the negativity was allowed in
my life. I allowed it and now it is up to me to focus on positive and once again believe I can do anything I
set my mind and heart to by feeling the feelings.
Bonnie opened the door for me after three years of severe depression, financial ruin and many failed
attempts at business start-ups. I owe this woman big time and only hope we can continue to help others,
as she has helped me." Ilene Morris-Sambur, Founder, Kids4Horses, Inc. 501(c)3 Non Profit Virtual
"I want to thank you again for your time. You have a wonderful way of explaining things that makes
sense. I have been seeking answers about the best way to go about having a 5013c and what approach
to take and had not been able to find it. You were able to provide me with guidance on best approach
and explain the benefits quite well. The information you gave me will help me to look at my organization
in a different light that will give me the most opportunity for growth, and to be a successful non-profit
organization, you must plan ahead for that growth. Your newsletters are so helpful and will provide
further guidance for me. You are an amazing woman! Blessings to you and all that you do!" Kim
"I really enjoyed the time we spent together. It did several things for me. It reinvigorated my enthusiasm
for the non-profit. It has also very much excited the board to look at new possibilities. I think this was the
right thing at the right time! I felt as though I have been struggling to just keep up with all the work - but in
fact I can now see alternatives to getting the work done. It will free up some of my time to do the things I
really love to do. I can also see ways to sell our mission, not only to the general public but also to
Thank you so much Bonnie! It is very much appreciated. I hope to fill you in on our progress soon."
"My time spent with Bonnie gave me a wealth of information. Bonnie has a unique gift, in that she is very
knowledgeable about non-profits, advertising, websites, and technology, combined with motivational
and speaking skills that will benefit me in my journey. My non-profit Riding Therapy program is new, so I
have much to learn. Bonnie answered all my questions, and provided me with more information and
ideas in our conference call than I have gotten from numerous sources in my first six months of
business. I am really excited about getting started, and will contact Bonnie for help and advice along the
way. I highly recommend her to anyone in business, whether they are building or maintaining, for-profit
or non-profit. Bonnie is upbeat, positive, and full of great ideas. Thank you for an invaluable session!"

501(c)3 Filing for Non-Profits:
"Bonnie is extremely knowledgeable when navigating the complex application process in applying for a
Federal 501c3. A veteran and trusted guide for us when encountering the rough terrain and quagmire of
government paperwork. She was our guiding light by ushering us through the murky waters to achieve our
goals. We highly recommend Bonnie to help any organization who is a 501c3...or hope to be one! We are
very appreciative that Bonnie helped us through the process from beginning to end which resulted in a very
fast approval. We HIGHLY recommend Bonnie to
help with your new non-profit too!" - EIE Cares, eiecares.org
"... I was asked to assist in the preparation of the Palette Art League's 501(c)3 application. When it
became apparent that we needed some assistance, particularly in correctly interpreting the intent of
many of the questions asked on the application, we enlisted the help of Bonnie Marlewski-Probert.
She is a professional, and she not only gave us the help we needed in understanding exactly what was
being requested on the application, but also provided practical and useful suggestions on how to go
about gathering the information.
Her unfailing optimism throughout the entire process was contagious. I recommend her to you without
hesitation. Sincerely, Pat Canary"
"I would highly recommend Bonnie Marlewski-Probert to anyone needing assistance in gaining a 501C3
status. Bonnie was very helpful in the process of the Palette Art League getting theirs. She was very
knowledgeable in the way she took our ideas and helped us form a better way of presenting them on
paper. Bonnie also gave us ideas for us to apply to our particular organization. The people working on
the application for the Palette Art League would not have been able to apply for and obtain our 501C3
without the help of Bonnie Marlewski-Probert. Sincerely, Anne Presley, Member of the Palette Art
