Ink to Novel actually began as a bookish sticker shop on Etsy, known as Bookish Vibes Design Co in 2021. As I connected with other book lovers, I eventually discovered the Indie Author community on Instagram and fell in love. I began creating designs for the writers of the world to add to my shop and received so many touching messages about how my stickers helped to inspire writers through some of the self-doubt and imposter syndrome that they were facing along their writing journey.

As months passed, I began Beta & ARC reading for new authors and as my desire to support and inspire these amazing authors grew, Ink to Novel was born.

Eventually the thought of running both Bookish Vibes Design Co & Ink to Novel became overwhelming and I decided to merge the two brands. By doing so, I was able to not only continue connecting with book lovers, but also supporting writers, through my designs and sharing their novels with the readers in my community.

So whether you’re a reader or a writer, I’m so glad you’re here and can’t wait to connect with you!








Thanks for stopping by my corner of the bookish and writer world!

I’m Michelle, the face behind Ink to Novel. I’m a 30-something, wife, and mama to 3 tiny humans.

I’m also a business owner, reader, writer, creator, and lover of caffeine and all things cozy. Come hang out with me while I share weekly book reviews, things I learn about the indie author, editing, and self-publishing world, write my first novel, and hype up some of my favorite bookish biz owners and indie authors, all while trying to balance the chaos of my life.

I believe in community over competition, and collaborating is my jam, so if there’s anything you’d love to see, or think we’d be a great fit to work together, please drop me a line!
