What can I say about the ladies of Luminare. Working with them is like being home. I live only a short distance from their main business location, so the good feeling of taking my labors of love (Father Sam is my second novel handled by Luminare) to them is a feel good experience. Highly professional as if they were Madison Avenue, a writer never has to doubt the thorough nature of Luminare's work ethic and consideration for authors who are novice to advanced. The exterior and interior design are usually okay with me at first go-around, but they give you several chances to ask them to tweak this and that. There is no high-pressure upselling going on, but you'd do well to check out their products and services that can be added to your cart, as I always do. Steven Boergadine
This is the third book I've published through Luminare Press, and everyone there has done flawless work from the first contact through the "congratulations" phase of all three projects. That is not at all the experience I had with two other houses, so I'm grateful to have found and worked with Luminare for the last three books. The professionals at Luminare are just that--professional. Self-publishing/hybrid publishing can feel like a maze of options, requirements, and choices, but every person with whom I worked at Luminare did everything they could not only to lead and guide, but to make it easy. I opted to add line editing for the first project, and was so pleased with the work that I chose it for the other two as well. Great work, Luminare! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'll be back as soon as my current WIP is complete! Thank you Gail A. Webber
Starting with my first consultation with Patricia, what became more and more obvious to me was that Luminare Press is a closely knit family of book professionals who, beyond possessing the nuts-and-bolts skills of book publishing, is tremendously helpful and nice. (Yes, "nice"—that old-fashioned word.) The designer was spot-on. And the entire production team provided a very organized explanation each step of the way, always responding quickly to my questions. I couldn't be happier with the resulting gem of a book, and feel that I came away, too, with a better grasp of what publishing looks like under the hood. Ann B. Parson
