My second experience working with Luminare Press was more difficult because my memoir they published included multiple images. But like my first novel they published for me, their managing editor (Sallie), project manager (Kim), her production assistant (Caitlin), and graphic designer (Melissa), all working with the owner/editor (Patricia) guided me through the process, patiently tolerating several of my image and edit changes, as well as a complete book design change. All their communication with me was friendly, cooperative, and professional. I could not be happier with their expertise. Ronald Lutz

It is very exciting to see our published memoir, Between the Lines:You, Me and Sicily, for sale – the result of a challenging and fun creative endeavor. We did not include a list of thank-yous in our book because, well, it was basically just the two of us stumbling through the book writing process. That is to say, before Luminare Press brought it all together for us, far exceeding our expectations for an aesthetically beautiful book. From our first zoom meeting with Patricia to seeing our book for sale on Amazon, the Luminare Press staff was superlative. Their encouragement, positivity, expertise, creativity, efficiency, patience, spot-on advice and professionalism made novices like us feel as if we knew what we were doing...and were their favorite clients. From beginning to end, we found Luminare Press approachable, straightforward and very user-friendly and recommend them enthusiastically for anyone pursuing self-publishing.

This was my first book and I had a lot of concerns regarding publishing. In hindsight, this was silly. The staff at Luminare Press was easy to work with, responsive to any and all questions, and encouraging. I definitely plan to work with them on my next project. David O'Brien

I had a great experience working with the entire staff at Luminare Press on my first book! This was a huge step for me - I am grateful for the kind treatment, expert guidance, and (a little bit of...) hand-holding...:) From my first phone consultation to now seeing my book available for sale, I was involved in the process, guided in areas I didn't understand, listened to, and most of all was left feeling like my book mattered to the team - my team. I'm very grateful and happy for the experience I had and would (and have) recommend Luminare to any author - first time or seasoned pro. It was a real blessing for me to have found them. Alan Aymie
