“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.”
