What Clients Say

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

Charles Williams Eliot
Catherine Williams typeset my book 'Wax & Gold: Journeys in Ethiopia & other roads less travelled' and from the very start it was clear my book was in the hands of a master typesetter – even though this is something I know almost nothing about. I had previously sent my manuscript to a freelancer I found online, and the disastrous result made me realise what an artform typesetting is in itself, and just how important it is to the reader’s experience of your work. Catherine moulded the text into what is instantly recognisable as a professional layout, and helped me through the entire process of publishing. She made small design proposals and additions that I would never have thought to ask for, and which she certainly didn’t have to do, but which have given the book a real character of its own. I have had nothing but compliments from my first readers, and cannot recommend her services highly enough.

I've just uploaded my book in print and kindle and it was a doddle with the files Catherine created. I changed my mind a few times about things and it was no trouble. She made the process of getting a book out there in the world that looks good, easy. Thanks Catherine.

When I received the designed book from Catherine, it sent glorious shivers down my spine! Exceeded all expectations. I trusted Catherine from the word go – and as a first time author this is crucial. Calm, reliable, good communication and very skilled. Have been recommending her to everyone!

Catherine stepped in at short notice to take over the digital formatting of my new book, Survival Skills for Freelancers. Though I had been aware of Catherine's services through LinkedIn, this was the first time we had worked together. I warned her that my perfectionist tendencies meant I would be extremely specific (read "picky") with my comments, but she took everything in her stride and the end result is – in my opinion, at least – the best-looking business book I've ever seen. If you're new to self-publishing and need an experienced and capable pair of hands, contact Catherine. She really does live up to her reputation as being 'virtually unflappable'!

Catherine Williams is the consummate professional when it comes to doing a complicated interior design for a book. In addition, my book cover had been sized incorrectly for the dimensions of my book, so she adjusted the book cover to the appropriate size. Catherine is a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend her.

Catherine helped me with the typesetting and production of my first book, ‘Content DNA’. She was helpful and unflappable throughout, answering my numerous questions about the self-publication process. Her work on my manuscript means I can now print my book independently and also via Amazon. Thanks for your help and patience, Catherine!

Catherine Williams is a consummate pro and is an absolute joy with whom to work. She takes each book and lovingly envisions and then creates the most gorgeous layouts! My authors literally cry when they see their books for the first time in layout form (I may or may not also shed a tear).

She's my go-to for book layouts and I anticipate creating many books together! Thank you, Catherine, for helping me support indie authors in presenting their very best work to the world.

I was thoroughly delighted when I came across Catherine Williams. Having worked in the publishing industry producing books for over 15 years, I was thrilled when I found someone with Catherine’s experience, expertise and ability to help me produce books for my clients.

Working with Catherine has been a complete pleasure. She’s unflappable, efficient, fast, flexible and has a fantastic can-do attitude. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience of book publishing that is difficult to find with most designers and layout artists. Finding Catherine and creating high-quality, professionally produced books with her has been a dream come true. There aren’t many Catherines out there! If you want your book to look like the real deal, you’d be mad not to hire her. I can't recommend her highly enough and I also can’t wait to work with her on my next book project.
