View all Testimonials

Alison was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her methodology is organized and clear, and her knowledge on the subject of publishing was inspired.

I have been really pleased with the response from my readers since being published. I learned so much from our collaboration and look forward to working with Alison again soon.


Alison's unique blend of coaching with consultancy services is a must for any business looking to self-publish as a means to market their services, programmes or products. With her expertise and insight, alongside her lovely ability to combine challenge and accountability with unwavering support, she made the whole process of bringing my idea to its final destination as a book... a wonderful process. I recommend Alison without hesitation.
