What people say about The Proof Fairy


Alison provided us with a first class service when it came to proofreading, typesetting and publishing our book. Her knowledge and expertise were outstanding. She also delivered the book in the time frame agreed. Will definitely be using her services again for the next book!

Dr Shakir Mughal, Dental Success Stories

Without Alison, the X,Y and Z files would never have been published. I gave her a tight deadline to work with and she ensured that the book was proof read, formatted and ready for sale within the deadline. If you are looking for a proof reading / self publishing service, then Alison is the person to talk to. Amazing service.

Slaine McRoth, The X, Y and Z Files

As someone who prides himself on his grasp of the English language, I’m constantly humbled by the number of errors Alison spots within my manuscripts! And having had several agents tell me how refreshing it is to read an error free submission, I can honestly say she’s worth her weight in gold.

Peter Jones, How to Do Everything and Be Happy


I also offer a range of services to business owners, organisations and charities including proofreading, copywriting and blogging, and WordPress web design & maintenance.
