What Folks Are Saying ...

“We have been publishing multicultural children’s books since 2010. Of all the advertising and promotional tools we have used over the years (and we’ve tried them all), Story Monsters Ink has provided us with the best return on investment. Within 48 hours of an ad appearing in SMI, we always see a substantial increase in sales . . . month after month.”

– Julie Murkette, Publisher, Satya House
