Self-Publishing Consulting

Self-Publishing Consulting

There are many decisions to be made when self-publishing a book: paper stock, book size, color options—and these are just book specifications! You’ll also have to set up business accounts, obtain ISBNs, choose a distributor, and decide whether to go with print-on-demand (POD) or offset printing. To help you make these decisions, we offer consulting sessions to guide you along every step of your self-publishing journey.

What Kimberly’s clients have to say

“I published fourteen books in the traditional manner. Then I found Kimberly Martin and Jera Publishing. Kimberly knows more about every aspect of publishing than any person I have ever dealt with in New York City. My experience with her company has been outstanding in every respect. Frankly, I don’t know how she masters so many arcane editing, formatting, publishing, and marketing details. If you are thinking of publishing your book independently, you will find no better person and no better company. I would recommend her company and her services without reservation.”

author of Gully Dirt

“Once I decided to self-publish my novel, I didn’t know what to do next. There is so much information available but much of it is confusing and conflicting. I had to make decisions such as formatting, which printing company to use, inside design, cover design, and on and on. I was overwhelmed but then I discovered Kimberly Martin’s consulting services. After only one session, I knew that Jera Publishing was the resource I needed. Kimberly carefully and professionally guided me through the many steps that lead to a finished product. I am grateful to Kim and her excellent staff.”
