Testimonials

“Jennifer Zaczek has the makings of the ideal twenty-first-century publishing company; she is a respectful, easy to collaborate with editor, who offers some sound manuscript judgment calls. She also has a deft copyediting hand, amazing technological support skills, and incredibly valuable social media marketing savvy. Her rates are very reasonable and spelled out clearly in advance. In sum, working with Jennifer on my KDP e-book was a much more pleasurable experience than the one I had when a traditional independent press published a book of mine a few years ago.” —Wendy Aron, author of How a 52-Year-Old Neurotic Survived 24 Hours without Health Insurance (And You Can, Too!)

“Being a first-time author, I couldn’t have asked for more in the experience I had working with Jenn. After putting my writing on hold for several years, I went through a month-long process to choose an editor to help me through the daunting task of writing a book. By chance I found Jenn and could not have been happier with my choice. From the many rounds of editing to educating me on the different means of distributing the book, Jenn assisted me in all aspects of the book writing process and also was able to help design my website and offer tips on marketing. Her patience for someone like me with no experience was great as she helped me through the six-month journey. I can even credit her for keeping me on track on several occasions, since there were times when I felt like I couldn’t find the time to finish. After finally finishing, I am more than pleased along with my sudden fan-base of the quality book Jenn helped me turn out. I never dreamed I would become a writer, but Jenn has given me the confidence I needed to pursue my passion and I couldn’t imagine working with anyone better on future projects.” —JD Holmes, author of “I Like Your Form”: Confessions of a Personal Trainer

“Working with Jenn was a joy from beginning to end. She made ‘self-publishing’ easy for this novice. Jenn wrangled my client’s four mystery novels into print and e-book formats, holding my hand electronically along the way whenever I needed comfort. She answered every question quickly, and she calmly solved little production issues whenever they arose. The books look gorgeous. Thank you, Jenn!” —Catherine Hiller, president of Executive Editor

“Jennifer Zaczek did a fantastic job formatting my novel. I found it a much easier, quicker, and satisfying experience to work with her than when I had worked with a big company for previous novels.

Kennedy, author of the Nathan Miccoli Mystery Series
