Hi, I’m Michelle, and I help overwhelmed, first-time authors *just like you* to publish books with ease and confidence.

When you work with me:

* it’s all about you: working with just two first-time authors a month on my Whole Shebang package means you can be assured of my full support and attention during our 1-2-1 time together (you aren’t a number on a conveyor belt!)

* your book’s published in about 4 weeks: having helped hundreds of authors over the past 10 years, I have created a streamlined publication process (I’ll send you a copy once we start working together) to ensure your book is beautifully finished and published on Amazon in around a month

* your book gets a bumper marketing kickstart: once your debut book’s published and live on Amazon, I’ll share the link on my website, social media platforms and with my email subscribers, and we’ll do an exclusive interview together too

* your book will be available to thousands of extra readers all over the world: as well as publishing your book on Amazon, I’ll also upload it to another digital publishing platform so we can maximise its global sales potential through Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Smashwords and library subscription providers

* everything’s taken care of: from proofreading, typesetting and ebook formatting to cover design, your KDP account, publishing your ebook and paperback, a bumper marketing kickstart and the final handover, you don’t have to do anything on your own

* you’ll be a happy author: holding your book in your hand is the icing on the cake and I know you’ll be happy with my service – you can check out what my authors think here: Testimonials — Michelle Emerson ¦ Self-Publishing Services UK

…what about writing your blurb?

I meet so many authors who are first-class storytellers but struggle to write their blurb.

It’s more common than you think.

That’s where I come in. I LOVE writing blurbs – whatever genre: historical fiction, rom-coms, YA, contemporary, or (my favourite) thrillers.

Even if your son/daughter has an A* in English. Even if your bookworm friend reads 100s of books a year.

They are not proofreaders.

Don’t give them that responsibility. It will end in tears.

A poorly proofread book ruins your chances of 5* reviews. So don’t take the risk. Call in a professional proofreader instead.
