What do my authors say about working with me?

Michelle is an amazing lady. I have published other books, but this is the first time I have enlisted Michelle who has now published my latest work, a memoir. A story that was four years in the making.

Although I searched other websites, I kept returning to Michelle. Initially drawn to the fact that the pricing of her packages were clearly stated. No breaking down of prices or hidden extras.    

I also had a personal chat with Michelle over the phone, and found her a pleasant down to earth lady. She has really come through for me with her promptness in replying to emails, proofreading which the book needed, and everything else.

She has such patience too, especially when I opted for changes at the eleventh hour.

I have no hesitation in recommending Michelle to anyone looking to self publish or other publishing requirements.

Thank you again Michelle.

Dangerous Lovers: A Memoir

When I decided I had finished my story, dithering, I looked around for ways to publish – and found Michelle’s post on social media. Am I glad I did!

After a conversation with her, I was reassured that my work would be in very competent hands, and so it has proved. She picked up innumerable mistakes that I simply didn’t see and found a fantastic cover for my story. 

She is delightful to deal with, professional and encouraging and I will not hesitate to use her services again for my next novel. I simply can’t thank her enough for making the transformation of my manuscript into an actual book.

HEALTH-FULL: An Holistic Approach to Your Happiest & Healthiest Self

Michelle has been a patient, authoritative and knowledgeable guide in taking the raw material of my words and transforming it into the book that has emerged. She has been an absolute pleasure to work with, and I am already signed up for the next book in a quartet.

Mike Kingston, Author

A Candle for Consuela

Finding Michelle was the impetus I needed for this book to see the light of day.

Her support, calm supportive voice and superb professional knowledge took away the fear of the actual process and left me free to focus on my writing. 

Heather G Watts, Author

The Digger & Biscuit Adventure Series

I could not have done it without the support of Michelle – I know that the finished article would not have looked so polished or professional.
I also think that a self-published book can be identified by things like spelling errors and typos – I wanted mine to be something that I was proud to put my name too. Michelle helped to make this happen.
Janine Green, Author

Effective Anti-Social Behaviour Case Management Principles

What can I say?! Michelle helped to turn a potentially daunting experience into a joyful, bucket-list reality. Patient, encouraging
and able to offer wise words throughout, every bit of the journey was efficient, memorable (for all the right reasons) and positive.

Michelle has a natural gift for helping to optimise a book’s cover whilst also helping to get the best of a first-time author in between them. Thank you so much Michelle.

Lawrence Helliwell, Author

The Crash Team

After spending almost 25 years trying to understand how people might more effectively get cured of depression and then the effort of writing it up I dreamed of some miraculous person who would just say ‘I get it.  Don’t worry about a thing. I’ll take it from here’.

Well, Michelle has done just that. Proof reading, editing, writing, design and all the technical stuff that I wouldn’t have any clue about (still don’t) all done wonderfully.

She’s been very patient too! So how lucky I’ve been. And thank you to Michelle.

Michael Sclater, Author

A Manual to Cure Yourself of Depression

I have been carrying this book in my heart for the last 15 years. It seemed like crossing Siberia on a bike – almost an improbable journey to make.

The moment I contacted you, you took over control as a superpower. You were the positive driving force giving me the inspiration to fulfil my aspiration.

I very much appreciate the timely guidance and thought-provoking prompts inciting my excitement in transforming my sur-real dream into subtle reality.

I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for the excellent professional guidance in my venture. I can safely and soundly recommend you to other prospective writers.

East to West

I wanted to find a publishing service who could proofread as well as provide a publishing package. Also, I wanted someone I could trust, and who I could work with on a one to one basis. Every website I found either didn’t offer the whole package or didn’t seem to offer the personal service I wanted. Then I found Michelle’s site.

Wow, it provided everything I was looking for, and what a great choice I made!

Michelle has been supportive every step of the way. Nothing has been too much trouble for her, even when I kept adding in ideas at short notice! She was a fabulous proof-reader, and her blurb and Amazon description were just perfect. The cover, format and publication were all done for me, I didn’t have to worry about anything. I totally recommend Michelle to everyone who is looking for an excellent professional, supportive and friendly service. Michelle offers book creation of the highest standard…she really is the full shebang!
Stephanie Upton, Author


I really enjoyed working with Michelle again. Her attention to detail and her understanding with book editing, formatting, uploading and getting your book to print are absolutely excellent.

There were many changes and alterations along the way which she was able to effortlessly complete. Thanks for your help and support, it was much appreciated.

Justin Zalewski, Author

Thriving in a Toxic World

Choosing Michelle to edit and proofread my book, The Invisible Nemesis, is the best thing I could ever have done. I now have a finished novel of which I can be extremely proud.

Michelle’s friendly advice, subtle changes where required, and most importantly, her accuracy with regards to polishing my manuscript has made the whole journey through to publication an enjoyable experience, and one I would strongly recommend to other writers of all genres.

Malcolm Foster, Author

The Invisible Nemesis

I have utilised Michelle’s copywriting services for social media posts, newsletters, blog posts, web sales pages and proofing documents and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Michelle’s work is excellent, I give her a brief idea and the results are amazing. She has come up with blog topics and written them with no input from me. I have even joined forces with Michelle and added her services to my team for clients.

Lyndsey Gilchrist, OBM, Scotland

Michelle has a special gift. To just tell someone a few sentences and have them completely elaborate what you wanted to sound like an Oscar winning speech is not just a job, but genuine talent. Being in the business world, you find yourself at a loss for the right words at times. I was so happy with the quality and the speed of Michelle’s work that I lined up a few more projects right away. I am so happy that I now have her as a part of my virtual team to call on!

Adriana Langford, CEO, New York

Michelle’s eagle eyes spotted mistakes I didn’t know I’d made – I was so grateful for her editing skills and patience with me and my first book.

Her honesty and encouragement were greatly appreciated and I won’t hesitate to use Michelle again.

Lucinda Willicott, Author

Breaking Up With Christmas

Michelle has been a godsend.

I’ve used her services for several of my books now, and I’ve been impressed by her clear comments, the quality of her editing, and how quickly she gets the corrected manuscripts back to me.

It has been a pleasure to work with her, and she has been exceptional in picking up all those annoying little mistakes that I would hate to see appear in print. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs some top-class editing or proofing.

Thank you, Michelle!

S F Bennett, Author

Although I am disabled, I have always wanted to publish a book. I enjoyed writing and found the prospect of getting my book out into the real world very daunting. I cannot thank Michelle enough for making one of my life dreams become a reality.

Like many, I did my research but I kept being drawn to Michelle and in fact, saved her web address for 2 years until I was ready. She was my gut choice and I have absolutely no regrets.

I recommend her without hesitation and hope she continues in her wonderful work of making dreams come true.

Trevor Rai, Author

Try Walking in My Shoes

I am so thankful that I had the benefit of Michelle’s services. I cannot thank her enough through my journey in bringing my book to life through self-publishing.

I was a little overwhelmed when I was looking into what would work best for me, but as soon as I spoke with Michelle, she reassured me, and she magnificently brought my vision to fruition.

She knows all there is to know about this business and I could not recommend her more highly for her professionalism but personable approach. She is without doubt exceptionally gifted in what she does.

Tayo Hassan, Author

Heart of Fire: A Pathway to Freedom

As a first time writer I can’t praise Michelle enough for her help and encouragement throughout the  production of my book.

It’s not often these days that you find someone who delivers when they say they will.

I have no hesitation in recommending Michelle to any new potential clients.

If you want to write a book or learn about self-publishing, talk to Michelle. She can help you with the entire process from scoping out ideas, writing and editing, to publishing and marketing. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and really knows her stuff. She is down-to-earth, extremely lovely to deal with and makes the whole writing and publishing process as easy and painless as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Claire Mitchell

Michelle and the self-publishing package she offered proved to be exactly what I was after.

She delivered on everything she advertises, unlike many other companies and individuals. Her work is to the highest standard, always professional, polite, offering excellent advice and opinions. She replies to e-mails and texts quickly and efficiently, and delivers a bespoke book into the publishing world.

Your book dreams becomes a reality with Michelle.

Mario Panayi, Poet and Author

Birth, Life, Burial: A Poetry Collection

It has been a pleasure working with Michelle Emerson. Although I have had several books published before, this was my first sojourn into self-publishing. With not being very computer-savvy, I needed all the help I could get; Michelle certainly provided this in a very efficient, speedy, and friendly manner. I would thoroughly recommend her to any aspiring author who, like me, needs to be guided through the process from start to finish.

Michael J. Lowis

Author, From the Pope to Pigeons

Upon completing my first book I decided to get it proofread professionally. I was initially overwhelmed by the market for this service, but came upon Michelle Emerson and decided to give it a go. I have to say I was knocked out by the speedy and friendly service provided by Michelle. Her encouraging response was also a delight. I will certainly not hesitate in using Michelle’s services in the future, and cannot recommend her any higher.

Abby & Me

I haven’t had chance to read it through completely, but I can already see the benefit and improvement on my work. It will also help me with my writing and with future projects, which I’m sure I will send your way first!

E. Rae Teare

Writer (Book to be published)

I have known Michelle for some time now and having worked with her as my client, I knew she was the ideal person to help me edit an article that I needed to submit quickly for an online publication. She did not so much alter the article but actually, enhanced it and reduced it in volume whilst still allowing my style and voice to shine. Michelle’s attention to detail and her skills in both writing and editing are outstanding and I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Nicky Bartley, Transformational Coach, UK

I’ve just had a wonderful brain storming session with the fabulous Michelle Emerson about blog content and I am now buzzing with brilliant ideas. It’s so easy to get trapped within our specialist area of knowledge and not know what to write about but 15 minutes with Michelle has opened my eyes to some fabulous ideas. I really appreciated her time and help today and she is super friendly and easy to talk to. Thank you so much!

Marie Fell, Business Owner

If you need support with your writing, blogs, articles, web copy then get in contact with Michelle. She takes the time to get to know you and your business and shows a genuine interest. She is an amazing talent, very creative and a lovely warm person too! Don’t hesitate contact, Michelle, you won’t regret it.

Suzanne Mountain, Business Owner

The Non-Millenial Coach

I had a book written but had no idea what to do with it.

Michelle is a wonderful, calm lady who made everything easy and smooth. It’s such a joy when you meet someone who knows exactly what needs to be done, and Michelle is that lady.

A Malaysian Abroad: 10 Batshit Crazy Years in the UK Hospitality Industry

Having reworked my manuscript in certain parts, I then sought to give it the best possible start before offering it to the general public to read.

I eventually came across Michelle’s website. She offered exactly what I was looking for, a one-to-one service with an entire package. 

Nothing was too much trouble for her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Michelle to anyone who is looking for a professional, friendly service with high standards.

Graham Roy Swift, Author

Stracandra Island

I was advised to seek the services of a professional to take away all the stress and guide me through the minefield of self-publishing – Michelle Emerson was highly recommended to me, a recommendation that I wholeheartedly endorse.

I found Michelle to be not only very professional in what she did, but extremely helpful and friendly. She made the whole process painless. She transformed my MS in the most spectacular way – the book cover, the typesetting, and the attention to detail were truly amazing, better than I ever expected, and I can’t thank Michelle enough.

A Real Family: Memoirs of a Misplaced Childhood

When I decided to finally get my book out and published, Michelle sprang into action,  and had it done in record time!

I know I have committed the ultimate sin of procrastinating and perfecting it for too long. But then I had an important deadline and this forced me to make a final edit and get it out there.

I’m feeling so relieved now that it’s been published today. I can’t thank Michelle enough for making this a painless process and for her calm reassurance throughout.

Gilly Woodhouse, Author

Osteobiz Guide to Fearless Marketing

Michelle has helped me take my first novel from word document to being a published author.

She takes all the stress out of editing, proofreading, writing the blurb, uploading to Amazon and creating an author account.

Well worth every penny. So if you have a book waiting to be published don’t delay any longer!

Helen Pengelly, Author

The Pepper Seed

Working with Michelle has made the experience of publishing my first book, Onward and Upward an absolute joy! She has been patient, her word skills are amazing and she always understood exactly what I was trying to say. Absolutely delighted with my finished book and so pleased I chose Michelle to edit and prepare it for me.”

Jacqueline E Rogerson, Author

Michelle edited my debut book I Have a Dream. It was a daunting experience to publish a first book, but Michelle brought a calmness along with her expertise. I knew my book would be in good hands! Thank you, Michelle for taking care of my work and bringing the changes it needed.

Would highly recommend Michelle!

Danielle Drozd

Author & Confidence Coach

It is such a personal experience to share your book with someone for the first time. I trust Michelle 100% but still felt nervous as I awaited the edits of my new book. I needn’t have worried as when I read through them I loved my book even more. It has made a big difference to know that I have Michelle’s support combined with her expertise. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a book coach, editor or proofreader, or self-publishing help.

Cassie Farren


I cannot praise your professional approach and completion for all you have done for me  in regards to my project of County Fayre. I am so pleased you made it effort free and I  have something to show for which I  am so proud of being my first book. what can I say but thank you sincerely.

Finally when I complete my next book, you will without any question be asked to proof read it. Once again my sincere and grateful thanks.

David Marriott, Author

County Fayre

Highly recommended! If you’re struggling putting together website copy, ask Michelle! The Home page for my new brand Super Divine Web Design was feeling super flat and boring, and I was TOTALLY fed up of wrestling with words and flow, so I asked Michelle for some ideas, and I now have FAB content to work with. Am putting together my new Home page as we speak! A delight to work with. Thanks Michelle, you’re a star.
