Our clients share their experiences with Purple Crayon
"I can't thank Ciara enough for her brilliant ideas and creative content. The book tour and reels organised by Purple Crayon were
highly effective and our Instagram following jumped from 400 to 2,000 in just two months. Purple Crayon is a fantastic partner for any author looking to introduce their work to a broader audience.

"Ciara went above and beyond to provide me with assistance with the marketing and PR plans for my children's book. As a debut author, her support and warm, empathetic nature made a daunting experience enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Purple Crayon to any authors that need help navigating the world of children's books; you won't regret it!"
Katie O'Donoghue, author of The Little Squirrel Who Worried
"Ciara provided an in-depth critique of my picture book text. Her feedback showed incredible knowledge and helped make my work submission-ready. Ciara gave detailed notes on all aspects of the story including the theme, reader experience, language and voice. I appreciated the reasoning behind her editorial suggestions and loved her attention to the tiniest of details. Her feedback was supportive and encouraging and I would happily use her services again."

Ciara is professional and dedicated. She has helped me so much with my first book and provided me with very helpful notes and feedback. I will definitely be using her services again in the future. I would have been lost without her!

"Purple Crayon arranged blog tours for three of our key 2021 titles. We were delighted with the care, attention and positive reviews each book received, and the ease with which the tours were organised. Ciara kept in touch with us and monitored each stage; the whole tour was extremely professionally curated."

"Ciara really cares about your work and isn't afraid to be honest; this type of input is invaluable to every writer. I drastically changed two of my manuscripts following Ciara's advice and they are much better books as a result. I cannot recommend Purple Crayon highly enough."
