"From the very first time I contacted Holly I knew my book was going to be in safe hands. Holly is enthusiastic, encouraging and experienced editor and her detailed editorial advice helped me elevate my book which in turn helped me get an agent at one of the best agencies in London. She also helped me hone my cover letter and pitch. My book The Antique Hunter's Guide to Murder by C L Miller (to be published in Feb 2024) then went on to get major book deals in the UK, US and Canada and across Europe - Holly's editorial advice helped turn my very rough draft into something an agent could see potential. Thanks so much, Holly!"

"Tor succeeds when our authors succeed, and author care is key to that success. Domney Books helped Tor to maintain our very high standards of author support during a period of rapid growth. Holly’s project management experience and genre knowledge are incredibly valuable, but she’s also an extremely effective cheerleader for authors, supporting them from acquisition right up to publication."

"Working with Holly has been a dream. She was always quick to respond and went above and beyond to sort out any issues that might arise between delivering the first draft manuscript, publication and beyond. After editing and release, she was a cheerleader for my books and helped to keep them in the public eye through her genial presence on social media. If you need someone to help you navigate the world of publishing and get your books out there, look no further than Holly Domney."

“I can wholeheartedly recommend Holly Domney as an enthusiastic and perceptive editor, whose keen insights, eagle eye for detail, in-depth knowledge and can-do attitude are invaluable in guiding authors through every stage of the editorial process, from pitch to publication. At Joffe Books, we have been lucky to benefit from her expertise; Holly succeeds in making the editorial experience an enormously enjoyable one for author and publisher alike.”

“Holly's superb editorial work put the polish and the shine on my drafts. Without her insightful and constructive work, the books would not have been the hits they are.”

“Working with Holly has been an absolute dream. She’s got an incredible editorial eye and she’s as deft with her red pen as the monsters are with their claws in the books we’ve worked on. She’s a great and enthusiastic communicator and her author care has been top notch. I couldn’t speak more highly of her. It’s been a pleasure to work with her on The Watchers and I can’t wait to work with her on more books in the future.”

“Since the day we met, Holly’s support and enthusiasm for The Watchers has never abated. Her keen editorial eye and insightful suggestions have made it a stronger novel than I ever thought possible. And as a debut author, I count myself lucky to have had an editor so willing to invest their time, expertise and magic in my work. I’m quite convinced that Holly knows The Watchers better than I do. Working together has been an absolute pleasure and I’m exceptionally grateful for being given the opportunity to do so.“

“Holly is one of the best editors I’ve ever worked with. Not only that, she is part coach, part cheerleader and a true partner in the writing process. My Viking books would not have had the success they had without her. I would not hesitate to recommend her work to anyone.“

“Holly worked on 15 of my Pike Logan thrillers and 9 related novellas. In a herculean effort, she not only shepherded my entire backlist and new novels into the commonwealth market, but also wrote the marketing copy, briefed and managed the designers for the covers of the series, and promoted the books on Amazon by optimising metadata, which helped me secure Amazon bestseller flags. She devised the UK publication plan for the series and executed the strategy. On top of this, Holly is a joyful communicator who kept me informed all the way through. Enthusiastic and efficient in equal measure, she’s an asset to any author.“

“Editing, publishing strategy, copywriting, metadata, author support, Domney Books excels at all the things that are integral to any traditionally or self-published author. Whether you're new to publishing or long established, Holly's experience, professionalism and positivity make her invaluable on any writer's journey."

“Holly is an excellent editor with a passion for compelling fiction and a keen eye for both detail and higher-level structure. Her knowledge of the fiction market combined with her enthusiasm and practicality combine to make her a formidable ally who is always fighting her author's corner to help make their work shine. A genuine pleasure to work with, I can't recommend her highly enough.“

“I’m so unbelievably happy to have worked with Holly, any author would be lucky to have her!"

“Holly Domney saved my books. Her editing style and standard is pin-sharp ... but that's never the full story with a novel. Holly picked out the emotional hotspots that I'd missed, and got to the very core of my characters. The difference between first and final drafts was stark in this regard, and the improvement was obvious. She knew my characters better than I did! As well as a sprinkling of magic dust, Holly provides high-definition attention to detail under the tightest deadlines. Did I mention she is also a pleasure to work with? Any author would be lucky to have Holly on their side.”

“Holly has edited six of my thrillers and I can vouch for her talent and her passion. She's not only a terrific editor, but she's also a tremendous pleasure to work with. Her enthusiasm for publishing and her boundless optimism combine to make her an author's best friend.”

“It’s so enjoyable working with Holly. Professional and passionate, she not only champions her authors but goes above and beyond for them and their books.”

“Insightful, friendly and transformational - Holly and the team at Domney Books are real literary gurus.“

“Holly is a whirlwind of passion, positivity and energy. She spearheaded the successful launch of the Aries imprint while a global pandemic was raging; she revitalised the publishing of many digital authors and acquired a number of brilliant novels herself. She’s brilliant and always goes above and beyond for her authors.”

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Holly on my first historical fiction novel, Oath Bound . Holly’s infectious enthusiasm and boundless positivity convinced me I’d found the right home for it at Aries Fiction, and her consequent guidance and publishing expertise was absolutely invaluable.“

Author of Oath Bound

“She is always hugely enthusiastic and passionate about the fiction market and would be a great asset for any new and established authors seeking additional support and structure.”

“Working with Holly was such a rush. She combines publishing savvy with a strong dash of brio and a pinch of madcap humour. It's a powerful mix!“
