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

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.

your success - a rare combination!! She's a gem!" Dena

"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 she provided.
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
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 Publishing Inc." Deb Lewin Plano,

Fur In My Paint. "My publisher and mentor in this new endeavor,
Bonnie Marlewski-Probert - Thank you for EVERYTHING you
have taught me. The education you have given me has been
priceless." Tifane Grayce, author of Fur In My Paint.
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
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.

"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

"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 Shotola, www.TheLightfootWay.com
"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 sponsors.
Thank you so much Bonnie! It is very much appreciated. I hope
to fill you in on our progress soon." Kathy Castro
"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,
"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 League."
