Overview

Unlike other author publishing services, I like to develop a mentoring relationship with my clients. My services don't have to end when I hand over finished files. Not only will I polish your manuscript and design stunning book pages and covers, I can guide you through print and ebook distribution and promotion opportunities, navigate the world of social networking, and demystify publishing industry terminology and processes.

My services include:- Editing & proofreading- Book design & typesetting- Customised cover design- eBook publishing- Promotional bookmarks, postcards & posters- Custom WordPress author websites- Print brokering / Account set up with self-publishing platforms

Some of my clients' feedback:

"Michelle was very professional and easy to work with. She always responds right away and she really knows what she is doing. She was able to format my ebook perfectly and quickly in epub and mobi format." - Lisa Gornall, In Light & Love: My Guide to Balance

"Thanks to Michelle for making my book look great and for making the CreateSpace publishing process so easy! As a self-publisher, I knew that I wanted to go beyond the stereotypical amateur product and end up with a top quality, professional book that I could be proud of. Michelle provided me with excellent copy/content editing, formatted the interior and cover, and took care of uploading all the files for publication. I was able to concentrate my energies on writing and creating my marketing plan instead of wasting weeks or months learning how to do a bunch of tasks I’d never do again. My book is now in print far faster than I could have gotten it out alone, and no one who sees it can believe that it’s self-published."- Nancy L. Hill, Nature Whispering,148 Ways to Have Magical, Mystical Experiences in Nature
I received my proof in the mail and I have to say it looks FANTASTIC. I want to thank you and your team for the outstanding service you have provided for me. I am stunned at how fast you were able to publish my book. Yet I can sit my book next to any book in my local book store, and feel proud. No one would ever know it was self published. Michelle you made me feel as though you cared about my project just as much as I did. I would tell any author who decides to self publish to partner with Odyssey Books. Thank you for helping me to achieve my dream of becoming a published author."- DeDe Hunt, Empty Spaces
"I’d like to thank you for your work on the interior file and the full cover for my book Dangerous Secret. You went way beyond simple competence! Your professionalism and talent created a wonderful frame for my writing and I’m both proud of and delighted with my novel because of your work."- Renée Goudeau, Dangerous Secret
"Michelle is a masterful artist with her layout work. She is also clear and competent. Five stars!"- Belden Johnson, Co-Creating Deeper Connections in your Real Relationship
