“No sooner had I signed the contract for REBOOT than I began to believe that there was absolutely no way I was going to get it done. I lost confidence in myself, which I think a lot of writers on large projects do. I didn’t believe I was going to be able to pull it out of the bag, and I needed help.
And one of the people I turned to for that help was Shelley. She is an author herself, a multi-genre author, which I really appreciate because that describes me as well. But she’s also the most amazing and encouraging coach and cheerleader for other writers. And I turned to Shelley in a dark time, and she was always there for me to give me encouragement, to listen to chapters as I read them out, to give me feedback, and she was just a huge support to me during the process, which meant a lot.
So if you’re a writer and you’re looking for someone to help you out, get people in your corner who are going to encourage you from a place of really understanding what writer’s life is like, what writer’s mental crises are like. Shelley got it. She really got me. Shelley, without you, Reboot wouldn’t be hitting the shelves tomorrow.”
“The initial panic and doubt that were present when I was asked to write for a large e-publisher were quickly put in their place during my very first “Can you help me write a book?” conversation with Shelley. She knew exactly how I was feeling and what to say to reassure me that I could most definitely write a book!
Shelley’s process was well thought out and thorough. From initial brain dump to curating chapters and content, I knew exactly where I was and what my focus had to be at any given time. That’s not to say I didn’t doubt myself during the process! I did and Shelley not only expected it but she knew how to move me forward. As I progressed, my love of commas and exclamation marks was soon reduced to mere necessity! And who knew that two spaces after a full stop was no longer a thing… a hard habit to break after learning to type on a typewriter! Shelley was there every step of the way and under her expert guidance, I hit my publishing deadlines and proudly submitted my first book.
It is no understatement to say that I could not have done it without Shelley, and I cannot thank her enough.” Sarah Gray, Sarah Gray Stylist, Published Author of How to Dress with Confidence at Work
“I thoroughly enjoyed Shelley Wilson’s writing workshop. It was well structured, a good pace and very inspiring! It has got me thinking about my next writing project and motivated to stop procrastinating. It was worth the time and money!” Carla Devereux
Orchard Business Development
Shelley has been a resident blogger for the Socially Shared Business Support Network now for a couple of years. Writing our monthly blog posts, often from just a subject title and few brief points, Shelley captures the right tone of voice and the essence of what we want to say perfectly! Shelley also writes event reviews of our annual women in business conference and special events and she has an amazing ability to effortlessly capture the atmosphere and the key messages of the key speakers. It was such a good decision to outsource our blogging requirements to Shelley because she has a natural talent for writing, works to deadline and offers a very professional and reliable service. She is a real pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
Beyond Boundaries Coaching
I went to one of Shelley’s writing workshops this week. It was a brilliant day – motivational and fun. The exercises were so helpful and practical. I got stuff out of my head and onto a page without it feeling like an effort, and I left feeling inspired to carry on writing.’
Award Winning Marketer, Author, Speaker and Business Strategist
As a new independent author, navigating the publishing process and best way to take my book to market was like a mine field of options and possibilities, and for me very much trial and error. I was introduced to Shelley, after experiencing a fair few setbacks, and honestly one meeting changed my world. Her down to earth nature, positivity and knowledge of writing, publishing and promotion was fantastic. She made it easy to follow and understand, provided practical advice and steps and really made a daunting process seem easier. I left with clear next steps and rekindled excitement for my book project. Shelley is now my go to mentor for author support and writing services. And I’d say a must have member on any budding authors team.

“I have only got to know Shelley via Zoom since lockdown, but I can’t wait to meet her in person! She has already helped me on a couple of occasions and her work is fantastic. When we chatted for the first time it was as if we had known each other for years. She is so easy to chat to and get to the heart of what you are trying to say. I would highly recommend Shelley if you are looking for help with any kind of writing.”
