Read Testimonials of Authors Vanessa has worked with and championed in publishing.

"I credit Vanessa Chandler with discovering my talent and helping to teach me how to become a professional author. I highly recommend Vanessa to any author.”

- Kris Vallotton, Senior Associate Leader of Bethel Church, and Co-founder & Overseer of Bethel School of Ministry in Redding, California

"I wrote my first book in 2004 and sent the manuscript to a publisher. The publisher wrote back saying in essence that my content was good but that I really wasn’t a writer. I got so discouraged that I quit writing for a year. Then one afternoon I met Vanessa Chandler at a retreat. I told her about my experience with the publisher and she asked me if she could read the manuscript. I handed her my computer and she read what I had written for about an hour. When she was done reading the first few chapters of my book she said, “Your writing is excellent and your content is really revelatory. I don’t know what that publisher was talking about but you are a really gifted writer.

Vanessa and another editor helped me finish my manuscript and six months later that book, which is entitled, The Supernatural Ways Of Royalty, went on to become a bestseller! Since that time I’ve written many other books and more of them have become bestsellers."

“The Red Arrow Media team, led by Vanessa J. Chandler co-authored my book, The Hard Road. Vanessa was incredibly professional and is very talented in her writing. She accurately depicted a real-life event and authored it in such a way as to capture any reader’s attention. She and her team went through the book thoroughly and restructured the chapters multiple times so that the reader would be in the present, then the past, keeping their attention on the story. As a result, we got a very accurate, real, true to life version of my story. I highly recommend Vanessa & the Red Arrow Media team to author or co-author a book.”

Jackson Hole Real Estate Associate & Author of The Hard Road

“It has been said that 81% of people in America feel they have a book in them, and I have heard that only 1% will write the book. I am the 1%, but I do not believe I could have ever published my first book without the help of Vanessa Chandler. I liken the book writing process to birthing a baby, and Vanessa is my doula. I envisioned my goal and developed my manuscript, but had trouble organizing the flow of ideas. I did not think I could bring my book to fruition. Things got really painful and seemed out of hand until Vanessa brought me the epidural. When Vanessa reviewed my manuscript she was like the medical professional who could anticipate what the best plan of action was for me, and she was right there to celebrate the birth of my book. Her influence has been monumental in the crafting of my book and its coming to publication. She was ever present for each question, concern, and insecurity about how to write and publish my book. I highly recommend taking Vanessa’s writing class, as I have already learned so much from her. But I, too, will be taking the class. I believe you, as well, can be part of the exclusive 1% who actually achieve your dream.”

“I’m grateful to Vanessa and the team at Red Arrow Media for helping me bring my dream of publishing into reality. The team helped me transform my raw, green story into a finished novel with great artwork and interior design. Vanessa is enthusiastic and encouraging, and will help you discover how to release your writing gift to the world.

“My experience with Red Arrow Media has been wonderful. Vanessa and her team have been extremely professional, efficient, and helpful. I am a new author and the thought of going through the process of getting published with my limited technical skills was daunting. They walked me through it beautifully. The editor they chose for my book really worked at capturing my voice and brilliantly helped me with capture my expression on paper. I am grateful for our partnership.”
