"Amanda Rooker of Split Seed Media is the best editor and thought partner I have ever worked with. She brought the book to a level I never could have on my own and her drive to deliver so we can help people help themselves was a foundation for every conversation."

“We have never worked with anyone who compares with Amanda Rooker as an editor, researcher, draft piece writer, and general support team. Her attention to detail and ability to juggle millions of details simultaneously and flawlessly would be valuable on their own, but her ability to think, remember, compare, learn quickly, and make genuine contributions makes her essential to our book production. She truly cared as much as we did about producing a complete, accurate, interesting, and useful book.”

“I’ve been waiting to write my story for almost a decade now. When I spoke with Amanda at the beginning of 2020, I knew she was the exact person to help me to tell it. Amanda created a safe space for me to bring out my authentic self and write my story of addiction and recovery. She encouraged me to write the book the way I wanted to and guided me throughout the process. Her feedback and experience were invaluable for a second-time author like me. I’m forever grateful for Amanda’s support in getting my message out to the world. I highly recommend Amanda and Ben for all of your publishing needs.”
