What our clients say

Steve Ankers (author of "It's a Dog's Life for the Other Half")
Elly Donovan threw herself wholeheartedly into the task of promoting and publicising "It's a Dog's Life", secured a larger number of reviews, articles and interviews than I thought possible and supplied me with excellent publicity material ... Nothing was stinted; everything was carried out promptly, enthusiastically and in a thoroughly professional manner.  I have been confidently recommending Elly to others and will without doubt be beating a path to her door with any future offerings of my own."
Sir Harold Atcherley (author of “Prisoner of Japan”)
“We cannot praise Elly Donovan highly enough. She is thorough, conscientious, innovative and completely reliable. We do not believe one could find anyone better in her particular field, and if an opportunity arose in which we could use her services again, we would not hesitate to contact her.”
Helen Langridge (filmmaker and Managing Director of HLA)
“Elly was wonderful from start to finish. She went above and beyond in securing PR, including several BBC and Telegraph interviews. I would recommend Elly Donovan to anyone looking for a brilliant PR person.”
PD Murphy (author of “As I Walked Out Through Spain in Search of Laurie Lee”)
“I wanted to say thanks for all your hard work and dedication to the cause. I will be very happy to recommend your services. I feel the book had every chance to catch the eye of the press.”
Martin Laurie (author of “Cupid’s War”)
“I have received several letters and phone calls from people who have ordered “Cupid’s War.” They had all seen it in The Telegraph or Mail Online, or some other publication.  None of these people would have seen or heard about the book had it not been for your hard work and professionalism; I am so grateful and can’t thank you enough for everything. It couldn’t have happened without you.”
