Nicole is nothing short of a life saver. Time and time again, she’s proven to be thorough and professional. She has both a sharp eye and a respect for style that I’ve always appreciated. I can’t imagine putting out a book without her.

-Adrienne Bell (Author of The Sinner Saints series)



BTW — I think it’s important for you to know that as I was going thru your corrections this morning I literally said out loud, “I love you, Nicole.”

Thanks for being so good at what you do!!!!!

I truly thought my indy novella was in great shape for release. I had thirty books and five years in the industry under my belt. I’d gotten a bang up cover artist, a wonderful editor and a fabulous copy editor. Turned out, it wasn’t enough. Just like in traditional publishing, things slip through the cracks. Then I hired Nicole. She caught typos, grammar issues, formatting snafus, and even a continuity problem. Without her keen eye, I would’ve put out a product that wasn’t ready for my readers eyes, and I would’ve regretted it. My advice? Write a great book, get an editor, and then? Hire Nicole!

“I honestly can’t say enough about my experience with Nicole Bailey as my main editor. She’s professional and knows her craft well, but for me as a prolific (and at times scatterbrained) writer, her ability to keep up with my schedule and move as efficiently and effectively as she does – blows me out of the water. I’ll be working with Nicole  until she kicks me out and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She’s a necessary element of my writing process and I’m beyond blessed to have been introduced to her.”
