How We Helped

W.V.J. Elliott had writ­ten her first chil­dren’s book and was ready to send it to the publishers.

Niki read the book in its entire­ty and took the time to under­stand W.V.J. Elliott and her vision. Niki then:

- Proof­read both books one and two and dis­cussed and explained all changes with W.V.J. Elliot
— Helped to write the web­site content
— Pro­duced month­ly activities/worksheets for children
— Pro­duced a quar­ter­ly chil­dren’s newsletter
— Wrote and sched­uled social media post

On com­ple­tion of my first children’s book – Elli­mas, the man­u­script was in draft for­mat and required the skills of an accom­plished proof­read­er to check for gram­mat­i­cal errors. So the search began.

First and fore­most I want­ed to ensure I hired some­one who had an under­stand­ing and an inter­est in my work. Niki ini­tial­ly took the time to under­stand my sto­ry and the char­ac­ters before she start­ed to read through the script. Niki had a gen­uine desire to under­stand the con­cept of the sto­ry and my inspi­ra­tion as an author before giv­ing it her pro­fes­sion­al com­pre­hen­sive appraisal.

The proof­read­ing turn­around was prompt and thor­ough and Niki held reg­u­lar con­tact with me regard­ing progress. Niki encour­aged my involve­ment at all times. She sug­gest­ed alter­na­tives yet leav­ing the ulti­mate deci­sion to me regard­ing the flow of the story.

Niki also worked on my web­site con­tent, Twit­ter and Face­book pages. She has a nat­ur­al flair with words, draw­ing engage­ment to a par­tic­u­lar top­ic and I received suc­cess­ful activ­i­ty fol­low­ing posts, tweets and blogs which Niki cre­at­ed for me before, dur­ing and fol­low­ing my book launch.

I will def­i­nite­ly be using Niki for mar­ket­ing and proof­read­ing my future books and I can high­ly rec­om­mend all of the ser­vices she offers.
