Publishing Partner provided a variety of services that I would not have been able to execute as professionally on my own. Above all else, Bethany is really easy to talk to and always encouraging me to do my best. Thank you, Publishing Partner!

Amanda Moon Ellevis

Partnering with Bethany on my book was the best thing I could have done. She is confident, kind and encouraging while at the same time, clear on the best practices for the publishing industry. I highly recommend Bethany and would work with her again.

When selecting a professional service provider to help me publish my first book, it was important for me to strike a balance between editorial freedom and literary protocol. I achieved this working with Publishing Partner. It felt like we were one team, working together to create the best publication possible.

Every step of the way, with patience and a belief in my story, Bethany coaxed, encouraged and guided my words onto the page. Her efficient timelines, her knowledge of the publishing industry, and her passion for getting results make Bethany the ultimate professional. When you hire Bethany and Publishing Partner, the outcome will far exceed your expectations.

Writing a book and publishing a book are two very different exercises. We simply don't know what we don't know, and Pocket Publisher saved me so much stress, self-doubt and second guessing. For a relatively modest investment, I was able to tap into her twenty years of hard-earned publishing smarts, as well as gain access to other Publishing Partner professionals who took my book through design and proofreading and all the way to the finish line.

Working with Bethany was an absolute pleasure every step of the way. Her knowledge of the publishing industry and feel for writing helped me outline, research, write and publish my book within a few months. Independent publishing is not as easy as it looks. Bethany and her team are responsive, wise and knowledgeable. My only regret is that I didn't hire her as a consultant on my first book!

Doug Hensch

I worked with Bethany on launching my first book, and she knew exactly what to do to get me on the bestseller list. Not only that, but working with her actually made the experience feel fun, supported, and like success was inevitable. I highly recommend working with her if you are publishing or launching a book.

Bethany’s devotion and dedication to her work is exceptional. Her patience and care for you as the client allow you the space to create and then manifest that creation into form. You will be in wonderful hands with Bethany and Publishing Partner.

Miranda Barrett

Friends and even complete strangers seemed to insist that I write a book about the unique situation I found myself in—raising quadruplets. I figured I had all the tools I needed. “How hard could it be to write my memoirs?” I asked myself. After editing and revising my book four times on my own, it was clear then I needed help—and soon. 


It was a relief and an inspiration when I discovered Bethany Kelly and Publishing Partner. In tandem with her first-rate team, she has proven to be well-organized, extremely knowledgeable, and a skillful facilitator of my work. Most importantly, she has the rare gift of communicating with confidence and grace. If you are looking for spot-on direction accompanied by encouragement, Bethany is your gal.

I had the great delight of working with Bethany and her Publishing Partner team to create a completely updated second version of my book, Teeming. It was quite a job, with many edits and hundreds of footnotes to navigate – plus, they were working with older files and a picky author! I'm happy to say Bethany and her team consistently impressed me with their thoroughness, attention to detail, and care for my wishes. They revised my book in short order and helped me re-launch, as a number one bestseller! If you're looking for a team that knows their stuff and executes with excellence, you'll love your experience with Bethany Kelly and Publishing Partner!

Dr. Tamsin Wooley-Barker

When I decided to publish my second book internationally, I didn’t know where to begin. Bethany went above and beyond what was expected of her. I’m so grateful for all she’s done and highly recommend working with this sincere, open and reliable person if you’re looking to publish a book.

Sami Bugay

When I decided to self-publish a book, I was absolutely certain that I needed someone in my arena to guide the process. I am an artist, and I hate managing shit. Having Bethany in my arena every step of the way was invaluable. She was flexible and worked with me around what my needs were as they arose. If you want to self-publish a book and don’t want to do it alone, I highly recommend Publishing Partner!

Janne Robinson

Bethany is a god-send. I would not have been able to publish my book without her. She will expertly navigate you through every step of the process. Publishing Partner has my highest recommendation.

C. Dixon Osburn

Leadership Embodiment worldwide now has a beautiful Spanish translation and published book and ebook thanks to Publishing Partner’s amazing expertise, knowledge and patience! The Publishing Partner team naturally absorbed every bump in the process that we thought was a catastrophe, with clear and concise actions, deftly reassuring us while meeting the timeline.

Miryam Chavarria Romero

The process of publishing my first book was a lot easier than I expected because the Publishing Partner team helped me every step of the way. The editors were excellent, and their suggestions made my book even better. I highly recommend them.

Heather Bailey

Publishing a book is like being a tourist in a foreign country without a tour guide. It was so comforting that Bethany knew where to go and what to do. I could not have done it without her.

Marty Chiu

It is clear that Bethany is passionate about creating beautiful books. I had a great experience, and I am overjoyed with the finished product.

Making the investment in Publishing Partner's services was a big step for me, but it has proved to be worth it in every way! Bethany Kelly and her team are knowledgeable, practical, professional, flexible and good-humored. Working with Publishing Partner was a great experience.

Luckett Davidson

Working with Bethany was the smartest creative decision I’ve ever made. Considering the price, the quality of the assistance and output, and the total integrity with which Bethany and her staff have handled my project, I have to go beyond simply recommending Publishing Partner, and strongly encourage anyone with a finished or almost finished manuscript in hand to avail yourself of her services.
