Don't just take our word for it... 

Alison's courses are a must for anyone looking to write a non-fiction book... The programs are a wise investment, and I can't recommend them and Alison enough!
Your professionalism, delivered with enthusiasm and care for each author, has been vast. You’ve created a very safe and amazingly structured process to support people through an incredible journey. Your constant encouragement and personal feedback has been invaluable. Thank you.

An exercise in going from "average" to "great". Before working with Alison, I knew that what I had just wasn't enough, but I didn't know why. But the last two weeks have blown my mind: now I have a book proposal that is built on a solid foundation... It has been an absolute pleasure working with Alison.
— Trevor O'Hara
For anyone thinking of writing a business book, I cannot recommend Alison Jones and Practical Inspiration Publishing highly enough... Without the programme and follow up support, I still would still be 'talking' about the book as opposed to working on the final draft for publishing.
