“I’ve been working with Kelly for years, and I don’t know what I’d do without her! She moderates my Facebook group, coordinates giveaways, orders swag, drafts my newsletter, plans events, keeps me organized at signings, and more. She’s always full of new ideas, and she’s a delight to be around. I feel lucky to have Kelly on my team.”

USA Today Best Selling Author

“Kelly is a joy to work with. She’s on top of details and works at all hours. I highly recommend her.”


New York Times Best Selling Author

“Kelly Oakes was my very first author assistant, back in the days when I didn’t know about having an assistant, let alone know how to act as an author boss. She was patient, and kept me laughing, all the time getting me organized and focused on what I needed to do next, so I could devote more of my time to writing. She also helped me at my first book signing events, organizing my table, helping me talk to readers.

It was like having my best friend along, and yet, I was ten times more efficient, and focused on the business side of things. She really introduced me to the possibilities of where I could be. In short, she taught me the value of having an assistant, and I learned things that still are with me to this day, years later.”


Historical Romance Debut Author
“Kelly truly is my right hand. She’s well-versed in the business side of writing, with all its nitty-gritty details. As a debut author, I’ve leaned heavily on the knowledge she’s gleaned from handling New York Times bestselling accounts.”
“Kelly is the secret weapon that makes me look like I know what I’m doing.”

I definitely recommend Authors Write Hand! Kelly was perfect in getting me organized and making it possible for me to write instead of worry about other things! Need a VA…this is where you should go!”
