To prospective authors, publishers, and editors:

Michelle Shelfer is an invaluable asset to authors and publishers. Her strongest contributions to Earthen Vessel Publishing have been in what we call “content editing.” By that, we mean she has a keen intelligence coupled with deep sensibility that enables her to quickly assess the intent and audience of a written work and to clean up, tighten, redirect, and generally edit for better readability and authority. She can alter tone of voice, smooth ragged edges, and focus attention on the important intentions of the author, all with the additional attribute of good grammar, sentence structure, and punctuation. We highly recommend Michelle Shelfer.
- Kent and Katie Philpott, Owners and managing editors, Earthen Vessel Publishing

Mrs. Michelle Shelfer, I can’t even qualify the greatness of your work. I was most honored to work with you, because you are the fastest and most detail-oriented editor I have ever seen.
- Nikola Dimitrov, author, The Four in One Gospel of Jesus

I am happy to recommend Michelle. Her skills include keen attention to even the smallest detail, which is vitally important in publishing. It also includes sensitivity to the big picture of a manuscript (its structure and flow). In addition to having these editorial skills, she is blessed with a servant’s heart, wanting to use her craft for the glory of God and the strengthening of His people.
- Jim Weaver, Weaver Book Company
I am extremely grateful to Michelle Shelfer, my editor, for her excellent work on my manuscript, the book, Encountering the Eternal Guru--Ten True Stories. She gave helpful advice regards inclusion or exclusion of parts of the text, spotted proofing omissions and above all did a splendid job in creating well chosen subtitles throughout each of the ten stories, to high-lite changing themes and breakup the visual monotony of undue print spread. I am very grateful to her for creating a polished end product.
