When I first got in contact with Kelly, I knew right away she was the right person to design the book for my photography. I am pretty much a newcomer to publishing and she patiently walked me through all the steps necessary to get self-published. Any questions I had, she quickly answered. She has a God-given creative side too. She not only does the laborious tasks of designing, she is a natural for creative design. Pretty much all her suggestions were spot on and were used in the final layout for my book. I look forward to working with Kelly again in what I hope is the near future.

Kelly Lenihan was referred to me through an online writers group. I have been quite pleased to know and work with her. Kelly is detail-oriented and does excellent copyediting. I needed someone who could grasp my Memoir/Caregiving subject matter, maintain my voice, and polish my manuscript for publication. Kelly met this criteria with ease and diligence. I am delighted with the refined manuscript!

I found Ms. Lenihan to be very knowledgable when it came to formatting my ebook, The Cumberland Tales. The book is composed of prose and poetry, and Ms. Lenihan not only set up the prose and poetry superbly on the ebook pages, she also caught a few editorial errors. Thanks, Kelly, for having such an acute sense of readability and stellar knowledge of ebook formatting.

When I was referred to Kelly of Artisan Bookworks, I had a manuscript I’d been longing for years to get published—I’d given up submitting to agents, tired of rejection letters. I wanted to simply “get my work out there,” but had no clue how to go about it. Kelly walked me step-by-step through the process, providing me with excellent information to guide me in each of the multitude of choices there are to be made along the way. As a timid novice, it was exactly the kind of help I needed. It’s thanks to Kelly that I’m a successfully published author!

I must thank my friend Kelly Lenihan, she has been the Fairy Godmother to my writing career. Without her help, there is almost zero chance I would ever have gotten a book published, and very little chance I would ever have written a second.
—macayle, author, The Knightswood Tales series
Kelly’s work is simply genius. I love her creativity and ability to capture the essence of a person’s work with color, photos, fonts and all that goes into the visual part. She also knows how to “make things work” and does an excellent job of anything she agrees to do. I’ve been working with Kelly on various projects since 2008 and I can’t recommend her highly enough. I am one satisfied, joyful and grateful client!

Kelly designed my fifth children’s picture book. She did a wonderful job of designing the book keeping with the theme and setting, and even saved me from a grammar faux pas at the last minute of publishing. What is more, it was the first time all three editions of my book were available by the launch date (hardcover, softcover and ebook), and the first time no significant changes were needed to the files post-launch. Highly recommend.
—Alma Hammond, award-winning children’s author, Serafina Soars
I highly recommend Kelly’s design services! After a brief exchange of emails, she designed exactly what I envisioned. Her prices are fair, and the service was super fast. I am 110 percent satisfied!
