When I first looked at e-publishing, like a lot of people, I knew very little about it. From the moment I met Orla Kelly, this lady couldn’t do enough to help me, working tirelessly to get this book online. If you are thinking of going this route, I can highly recommend the services of Orla Kelly Self-Publishing. Orla, a big thanks. New Irish writers need a friend like you.

“It was from a random Google search that I found Orla Kelly publishing services and so impressed by what she had to offer, I decided to choose her services to publish my series of children’s books for me, indeed I was very pleasantly surprised.
From the very start of the publishing process to the finish Orla was the epitome of complete professionalism.  She was readily available with her updates, feedback and honest opinions and when the going got tough she was always most encouraging. Orla is very hardworking and also most diligent to ensure the work produced is of an extremely high standard and quality. She is an absolute pleasure to work it and I certainly would not hesitate in availing of her publishing services again in the future.  It is without a doubt that the future of publishing services is in very good hands with Orla Kelly at the helm. Thank you Orla Kelly-you Rock!”

Hi Orla,

Just a brief note to say that it was an inspired choice of mine, to select you to publish my first book. The attention and personal effort you put in to seeing that what was produced was of the very highest quality was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and you inspired me to keep going when I began to doubt what I was doing.

Looking forward to working with you again when I finish my next book.

I would highly recommend Orla Kelly for all your publishing requirements. She was extremely thorough, hard working, and she did all of her work in very good time and very efficiently. She was very reasonable in what she charged for her work and she did absolutely everything for me. She was very kind and agreeable to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is thinking of having a writing published. It was a dream come true.

In choosing to use Orla Kelly Publishing Services to publish my first book I made what I consider to be the singular most important decision in the whole venture. From our first meeting to discuss the project to the final printing of the books Orla was always encouraging, patient and most professional in all aspects of the process. Nothing was too much trouble for her and the end result was of the highest quality, I highly recommend the services of Orla Kelly Publishing to any aspiring author who is considering self publishing. For me it turned publishing my book from a fraught and stressful experience into a very enjoyable journey.

i begun writing books some six years past and never wanted to publish anything. i wanted to write just to write the idea of giving my work over to someone and losing control scared me a little. Then one day a friend come to me about self publishing he give me Orla email and contact information. after speaking to her for a long time about it i decided to publish my book. knowing nothing of publishing pricing or anything really Orla helped me with everything no matter the time or day she was there for me to answer even my most stupid questions. I depend on her knowledge for a lot of things one thing i admired was when i sent her the book. I never edited it. i have dyslexia and find it very difficult to do. to great shame of my own. When Orla found out she help me beyond count because of this i have grown to respect her for what she did.  Highly recommend using her to publish your work right to the final stage she was there to help me. Much thanks for the support Orla.

” From the initial contact right through to receiving copies of my book, Orla was highly professional, helpful and fully cooperative. All queries and suggestions were dealt with promptly and empathetically. I would highly recommend Orla Kelly’s publishing services.”

In my search for an able formatter for both Create Space and Kindle, I was fortunate to discover Orla Kelly Publishing, and from the outset was glad of my choice. Orla is patient and professional and pays special attention to what the author is trying to convey via the work, which makes the formatting process more of a pleasure for someone like myself, who has little technical knowledge when it comes to preparing for the final upload to Amazon. Highly recommended.

I can safely say that without Orla Kelly, my book would not have been published. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she is full of great ideas. If you’re interested in publishing a book, I highly recommend Orla.

I have been writing books on local history for many years, published and received well locally.  But a sudden change in my life in 2010 saw me having to take early retirement and finding a lot of time on my hands. Sitting down one morning in the winter of 2011, I began with an idea which blossomed five years later as The Spindle Tree. Countless emails and refusals later, a friend sent me a link and an email to Orla Kelly Publishing. Not knowing whether I’d ever hear from her, I was more than surprised to receive a phone call next day and the rest is history.

My journey with Orla through the publication of The Spindle Tree has been a magical journey.  Nothing was ever a problem.  To see the book grow wings from editing phase to cover design, to appearing online in the digital world was very exciting.  I found her to be friendly, helpful, patient, but most of all very professional always and she has so much knowledge of the publishing world, it can only go up and up for her.  If someone were to ask me to recommend a publisher for their book, I would have no hesitation in recommending Orla Kelly Publishing.

Danny Dunne author of The Spindle Tree

I am a first time author. After having finished my manuscript I didn’t know where to turn. This is a daunting time for any author. I had so many hurdles to overcome – where would I find an editor, a designer, a marketing agent and someone to negotiate the often times complex procedure of uploading text and design to Amazon and Ingram Spark. I approached a number of publishers, many of whom didn’t return to me for such a long time that I had forgotten I had approached them in the first place. Then I found Orla. She managed every aspect personally and worked tirelessly to bring my book to publication – producing a book that was beyond my expectations. Her support and passion for my book never dwindled. Her attention to detail is of a very high standard and her professionalism and work ethic is exceptional. She delivers all this in a very personal and friendly manner. When she attended my book launch I told her – “The services you provide are great, but what’s more important than this is the way you provide them.” I would use Orla again and never even consider anyone else. Robert Barry author of The Truth-The Greatest Cover-up in History

“It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Orla. It was my first book and I wanted everything to be perfect. I had million questions and million things to clarify, and Orla was always there for me. She has made the entire process really enjoyable. Her professionalism, attention to the detail, artistic approach really exceeded my expectations. She got my book cover design just exactly how I imagined it from the first attempt. I never felt the need to explain what I wanted (in terms of the interior formatting); she just read my book and knew exactly what would make it fabulous. Orla was patient and flexible with me, when I wanted to make some changes after the book was published. Even, when the process was finished, she is always available for me whenever I have any questions. Orla is a true gem for authors, her service always overdrives!”
