Talya Andor, Published author and frequent proofreader: “I have worked with Michelle over the course of a few years on several different writing projects. I find her to be the most highly skilled editor, always catching not only my silly mistakes with her detailed line edit capabilities, but giving me the thorough content edit that I need to bring my story to the next level. Michelle is committed to elevating the story to its fullest potential, and is quick to offer robust ideas for improvement. She is great about providing feedback on what works as well as what doesn’t, and is timely and prompt with project work and communication. Michelle is well-rounded and excellent to work with. She can scale her work to your needs, whether it’s a basic line edit or more extensive critique. I’ve worked with her on short stories with quick turnaround, and novel-length works, and she is equally capable regardless of length. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any level of editorial work that you need.” www.talya-andor.com

Michelle Kelley has proven to me she is the right person, and I will definitely use her services again!  After working with her on two books, I am more than comfortable recommending Michelle to anyone seeking a quality, knowledgeable and competent editing professional.   You can tell she enjoys her work which is likely another reason she does such a good job.  Thank you Michelle!  Your contributions have definitely added to the quality of my work.”

Michael Moon, author: “Michelle was recommended to me by Cathy Helms, who created the book cover for my new historical novel ‘Moonshadow.’ I am so grateful for the recommendation. Michelle under promised and over delivered, providing a level of customer service that was outstanding. Apart from the expected work of diligently seeking out all those errors of spelling, capitalisation, punctuation etc., Michelle really empathised with the book and the story and suggested changes in layout and phraseology that genuinely enhanced the work. On top of that, she also provides those vital, added ingredients of empathy and humour that made me feel totally involved. I learned a great deal from the experience and look forward to working with her again on the next novel. I would confidently recommend Michelle for to anyone seeking a highly professional editing and proof reading service that offers real value for money.” www.michaelmoonauthor.com

  1. Hello all,
    Well, if you are looking for an extraordinary editor for your novel, then “STOP” right here, and enlist Michelle Kelley’s services! As a “first-time” author, I can’t tell you how nervous I was waiting to hear who my assigned editor would be. But upon seeing the FIRST PASS of edits from her, I hit my knees and thanked God for this blessing that I got Michelle. Not only did she “crack me up” with some unexpected and delightful humor in her edits but then she went on to show me what a highly-skilled editor can really do. MY GOD, my mouth fell open and I have yet to lick my lips because my jaw won’t close. So, if you have any hope of putting out a BESTSELLER, be it your first novel or second or third, then you want her amazing skills all over it. Heads up, don’t use the word “VERY” with her! /snicker.
    My best to you and yours,
    William Davrick
