Pear Tree March 2022

“Just in a professional world, sometimes a phone call is more meaningful than a text.” — Kevin Harvick, race car driver.

Last week my husband and I bit the bullet and got a Smart Phone. SHHH!!!!! It’s not like we’re going to use it, it’s that we NEEDED it in order to get into the Billie Eilish concert, as paper tickets are becoming a thing of the past. But let’s not let reaching out via a phone call be a “thing of the past.” I’ve never been a fan of texting. Prior to this smart phone, I had another, several years ago–hated it, was glad to get rid of it. I truly don’t get the obsession with texting. And it’s not the way Pear Tree does business. We’ll always give good old fashioned service with a personal touch. A phone call or an email is a message delivered with care and class. Reach out and call Pear Tree today – 908-276-1514 for service that gives you a voice!


  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • EXTRA WORK (or small acting roles in commercials and indie films)

Unfortunately, Pear Tree will no longer present to libraries unless there is a signed contract to be paid “day of.” Pear Tree Enterprises is not a collection agency, therefore checks must be presented “day of” or the program will not be. NO NEGOTIATIONS.
