Alison Thompson – Helping You Take Your Book from Possibility to Plan to Publication

As a child Alison wanted to be a radio producer but deafness in one ear thwarted that particular dream. However, she has concentrated her career in the media industry and now helps aspiring authors to take their idea for a book from possibility to plan to publication as The Proof Fairy.

Play the podcast


Been in business five years. Initially ran a local magazine but branched out into proofreading so she had something more global to talk about at networking meetings. That has expanded into proofreading, editing, copywriting, newsletter and website design and maintenance. Alison does a lot of work for authors, editing their manuscripts.

However, not content with editing other people’s books, in March 2013 Alison wrote and self-published her own book. The Boy from Hell: Life with a Child with ADHD explores the first fifteen years of her son’s life, from his diagnosis with ADHD through diet and medication to school exclusions, brushes with the law and social issues.

In 2014 Alison qualified as an NLP practitioner and coach with the UK College of Personal Development and founded ADHD Kids. Through this new company, she now offers one to one and group coaching for parents of children with ADHD. Alison also organises workshops, training and events such as the ADHD Inspiration Day.

She is on a mission to raise awareness of ADHD and dispel the myth that it doesn’t exist!

One of the services Alison offers is helping people to write and self-publish books. Many people dream of becoming a published author but they often don’t know how to get started, where to find the time or what to write about. Alison coaches people to find a topic, plan the content and get the book written – and then take over the technical bits like editing, formatting, designing a cover and uploading their book to s self-publishing platform.

New Year is often a time when people assess their goals – and writing a book is one of those dreams that is more achievable now than ever before.

Writing a book is also really useful for anyone in business, as it positions them as an expert in their field and can lead to all sorts of exciting opportunities and new directions.

Specialising in helping people with a history of failed diets and fitness regimes to change their relationship with food and exercise for good.
