Marian Ryan, author of Cosmic Light: Through the Higher Mind

I work as an intuitive healer, therapist and spiritual teacher and I decided to write a book in order to detail my healing techniques. I wanted it to act as a follow up for clients, so they could practice the techniques outside of our sessions. I knew I needed help with the editing, but I also decided to outsource the publishing side. My daughter has published her own book and although she did everything herself, she found the task stressful, time-consuming and very technical.

It was lovely working with Danielle, as anything that arose during the process was handled efficiently so that I didn’t need to be involved. Danielle took care of all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff and I was very happy with the results. On the editing side, through very subtle changes to the text, Danielle managed to bring expression to my words in a very eloquent manner. Her copy editing skills also helped create a continuous flow throughout the book, whilst maintaining my personal style of writing.

Danielle’s approach was very respectful of my subject matter. Her guidance and advice were very relevant and were communicated clearly and in a friendly yet professional manner. All my requirements were met and the work was completed to a very high standard within the agreed timescales. Since publishing my book, I’ve had some fantastic feedback – five out of five stars on Amazon. People have commented on how well the book has been laid out and they have found the text concise and informative. I’m currently working on my second book and I will definitely be working with Danielle when the time comes to publish it.

    Danielle is a delight to work with, she was invested in my work and always had the final product in the forefront of her mind. Importantly, she ensured it worthy of being in the public domain. With a keen eye for detail and a professional … More approach she offers a quality service; I frequently find myself recommending her and will continue to do so. What are you waiting for :-D

    I found Danielle about 10 yrs ago I think, when I had the urge to write a novel, its now sitting in a dust pile but the experience was so good I decided to try again with a non fiction book about my experiences as a nanny and how to help … More new mothers. Danielle sifted through screeds of thoughts and rambling sentences and pulled out some thing that made me feel like I knew what I was talking about. But it was missing something on my part, and sat on the study computer till I became a mum myself and was able to bring both sides of childcare to the table, the professional and the novice ! Hence All The Small Things, Everything I picked up as a Nanny and a New Mummy was born ( pun intended ) Between us we filtered through blogs I had written and previous work and brought together a piece of work Im really proud of .
    Danielle found my voice, helped me say what I needed to say, and is still supporting me and helping me with wonderful press on the book, so far I've been in the paper and on the radio promoting it .... with a few more deals up her sleeve to make sure that our work gets to as many Mums as it can.
    I cant recommend this process enough, and the feeling of achievement when you have the book inside you on paper. Danielle is professional and personal , which is what us budding authors need. If youre looking to tell your story , look no further .

    I contacted Danielle Wrate by email about a proofread of my novel, Shadow Song. I was impressed by her swift and thorough response, checking that this was indeed the service I needed. The proofread was duly carried out, well within the … More estimated time. I am extremely pleased with it, as it has been carried out carefully and the comments made are constructive and helpful. Thank you.

    I am so glad I chose Danielle to edit my first novel. It was frightening to hand something I'd worked on so hard and for so long to a stranger, but, from the outset, she was supportive and offered constructive advice. I couldn't … More be more pleased with the work she did for me and will certainly be using her again for book number two.
