Michelle Kelley Editing

Michelle Kelley EditingA love of books, the art of storytelling, and an active imagination sparked an interest in writing from an early age, but when a friend asked Michelle to fill in as a last minute editor, the seed was planted. After more than a decade of using her writing and editing skills to help other writers as a hobby, she started a freelance business aimed at helping self published authors and collaborating with independent publishers.

After co-editing Discovering the Diamond, a booklet for novice writers by her friend and best-selling author Helen Hollick, Michelle expanded her business across the pond as well. Her goal is to continue working with writers who share in her passion for storytelling and to build a network of affiliates who also enjoy helping Indies produce books they can be proud of.

“Michelle proof-read ’Discovering the Diamond’, my hints and tips booklet for novice writers (published August 2013). She picked up several missed errors and was efficient and professional. I look forward to working with her on all my future projects.” -Helen Hollick, Bestselling US & UK Published author

“I have worked with Michelle over the course of a few years on several different writing projects. She 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.” –Talya Andor, Published author
