What my clients say
“After a kickstarter campaign got my mental health book through the writing and design stage, I was stuck without any knowledge of how to navigate the next steps of print on demand self-publishing. Michelle gave me an crash course in everything I needed to know. My confidence made a complete turnaround, and I saw exactly what I needed to do next. My book was launched successfully and I owe Michelle a huge debt of gratitude. Her guidance was invaluable.” – Will Hall, Outside Mental Health: Voices and Visions of Madness
Michelle was amazing! I hired her because her sample edit was head and shoulders above the ones I got back from the other copyeditors I contacted. She returned my full manuscript with effective changes to my prose and incredibly thoughtful comments. And ahead of schedule yet! – Janet Wertman, Jane the Quene
Michelle did a fantastic job editing my first two books, and I was extremely impressed with not only her meticulous attention to detail on the copy edits, but also her many wise suggestions and insights in her story edit reports. Her edits drastically improved each book while preserving my individual voice and writing style. I was further impressed with her exceptional professionalism and quick turnaround time, and I will not hesitate to contact Michelle again for my next book! – Nicholas Floyd, Seven Nights with Ayahuasca and You Can’t Spell Tokyo Without K.O.
I have had the privilege of working with Michelle Demers on two of my self-published books. Her work is truly outstanding. Michelle is a perceptive, knowledgeable editor with a sharp eye for detail. Whether it is a point of grammar, punctuation or questions of general structure, her advice proved invaluable. I highly recommend her to anyone wishing to explore the fascinating world of epublishing. – Evan Llewellyn, Whaddya Mean a Year in Provence? and My Own Damn Camino
