What do you need when you publish your first book? Patsy Byron is the answer. Her patience, great advice, hawk eyes and attention to detail make her the perfect proof reader and editor. You can’t beat the Patsy polish when it comes to perfecting your manuscript!
The prospect of publishing your book can be a daunting one, but with Patsy’s help, guidance and enthusiasm it made the experience a thoroughly pleasurable one.
She’s reliable, helpful and above all a lovely lady with a great sense of humour; a definite plus when your book is a laugh out loud one. I can genuinely recommend Stellar Books to help you on the rocky road of self-publishing; I’ll definitely be coming back when I’ve written the next one.

"My thanks in particular go to my editor Patricia Byron. It is due to her objective criticisms and helpful suggestions that this book has become infinitely better.
At all stages of the book’s development, Patricia managed to combine a fine eye for detail with a view to the broader scope of the novel and it was these skills especially (combined with a lively sense of humour!) that I came to appreciate and value."

"Given the nature of the subject I was most impressed by the sensitive and kind way in which the work was handled by Patsy Byron. The professionalism, enthusiasm and advice covering all aspects of the book from artwork, layout, quality of paper and publicity has made the experience a pleasure and the finished article something of which to be proud. If and when I write another book there is only one place I shall go for publication; Stellar Books."

"Patricia helped me deliver my first book, working to an impossible deadline. She was patient, supportive, knowledgeable and good humoured throughout the process. I recommend her with enthusiasm and will use her services again."
I first started working with Patricia towards the end of 2012/beginning of 2013. My recipe book was almost complete and it was time to start thinking about publishing.
Upon our first meeting she instantly displayed her expert knowledge with regards self-publication. She quickly grasped the concept of my recipe book and how I wished to publish it, providing insightful and exceedingly helpful advice from the outset.
Patricia has been (and still is) exceptionally thorough in the work which she provides for me. Using her contacts she sourced a printer for my book which gave me the possibility to publish a book with limited environmental impact on 100% recycled paper whilst meeting my high publication standards. She also delivered an excellent and highly accurate proofreading service before publication. Patricia worked well with the graphic designer of the book to ensure that the specific standards for our chosen printer were met. Patricia is highly responsive and exceptionally reliable. And she provides an invaluable service for ‘self-published’ authors like myself.
