Alaya Books is a one-stop-shop for your writing and publishing needs. Whether your story is just a distant idea, or your writing is not progressing as you wish, or you have a finished manuscript tucked away in a drawer… Whatever stage you are at, we can help you. We want to ensure you reach your writing goals, and look forward to advise you every step of the way.

Natalia Hooker

Founder of Alaya Books


Let us help you reach your writing goals. We can work together to solidify your book ideas and offer you techniques to get your creativity flowing. If you are new to writing, you can use our IQ method (interviews and questionnaires) to inspire you. You will have your first book draft finished before you know it.

This is what I said to Natalia when I felt at an impasse and she helped me get to the other side:

I just want to tell you how fabulous you are and to thank you for all your help and enthusiasm. You’ve been amazing!” 

I can count on Natalia for sound advice and to inject that extra pizzazz for inspiration. Can’t recommend her highly enough!’

Natalia, you are simply amazing! I really appreciate your guidance and expertise. I feel you have taken me to a new level as an author. Thank you so much!

Working with Natalia is such an incredibly rewarding experience. She went above and beyond to ensure that everything I had written was perfect. Not only did she help me improve my writing skills, but she has also provided me with such valuable insight on how to make my writing stand out in a more professional way. I must say that I feel deeply grateful knowing that I have found someone who I will always be able to count on for professional editing services. I highly recommend Natalia – five stars!

Publishing Services

Let us help you get your book out to the world. Publishing is a minefield these days for authors. We will demystify the traditional and self-publishing options to help you work out what is best for you. We can discuss marketing and how to reach your audience. Alaya Books also publish a select number of suitable books each year.

Natalia has gone above and beyond to help make my children’s book a product that I am proud to release. She has always responded promptly and communicated clearly, with patience and care. Thank you Natalia for all of your help!
