Luminare Press made me a believer in hiring professionals to help with aspects like design, formatting, and publishing to get your indie book where it needs to be. I have edited, formatted, and published my own books, but I was never 100 percent confident in marketing those self-published titles. Now, with immense hands-on help from the staff at Luminare Press, I finally have a book that I feel proud of—cover to cover. I will not be self-publishing again without the help of Luminare Press.

Terah Van Dusen – author of Dreams of a Rocking Pony

From my first “cold call” with Patricia to working with Claire and Kim at Luminare Press, it couldn’t have been easier! As a first-time self-publisher, everything and everyone was organized and efficient to make it easy for me. Working with Claire Flint Last as the designer was amazing. She captured the essence of my vision on the cover and worked closely with me on all design changes needed to complete this beautiful book of letters my father sent my mother during WWII. I cannot recommend Luminare Press more highly.

Shelly N. Brown – author of Dear Selma

After going through the ratings of several self-publishing companies, I chose a few to take a deeper look at. I scoured their websites. Searched the Internet for additional reviews. Gave the companies a call. At the end of the day, I chose Luminare Press to publish my work. Reviews were good, and I liked how they communicated with me. Turns out I made a great decision. I can’t say enough about how rewarding it was to work with the staff of Luminare Press.

C. Marie Schrant – author of Empath

I have worked with Luminare Press for five novels now, plus one translated in Italian. They have been so responsive and easy to work with I can’t imagine not working with them on my future novels. Overall, I can’t say enough about the wonderful people at Luminare. Thank you all for your great service and caring attitudes.

James A. Bacca – author of PIs

Luminare helped me publish my book in two different versions, one in English, and one in Hungarian. The folks I interacted with acted very professionally, they know what they’re doing. Initially, I thought maybe I could do all this by myself, but no. The expertise Luminare has was really helpful. And it shows in the end result. I’m really happy with the outcome.

Why Luminare Press?

Luminare Press offers professional, personal, and affordable services to ensure our authors get a book that they can be proud of.

Professional: We know how to pay attention to often unconsidered details that make or break a book—an effective and appealing cover, a font that’s easy to read, a page that’s professionally formatted, the appearance of the front and back matter. We scrutinize all the elements that go into creating a polished book.

Personal: We know that self-publishing offers a confusing array of options, and we’ll walk you through the steps one at a time and make sure that YOUR book has the attention that it deserves. We know it can be a scary process, but at the end of it, we guarantee that you’ll have a great book, and you’ll have a deeper understanding of your role as a self-­published author.

Affordable: When you sign up with Luminare, you’ll have a team that will help you choose the most effective, affordable options. We’re not going to sell you things you don’t need, and many of the “add-ons” that other companies will charge you for are all included in our basic packages.

Luminare (Loo-­muh-n­ar­-ee) is an Italian word that translates to “light” or “star.” We chose the name because we like the idea of helping authors bring their work to light. (We also like Italian words.) And we’re passionate about getting it right, about making books that we can be proud of.

Luminare’s service has been all I could have asked for and more. Patricia Marshall and her professional team are not only responsive (in meeting my deadlines), but they offered much honest and helpful feedback along the way. My books have all turned out better because of their attention to detail. I highly recommend Patricia and her team of experts. They will continue to be my partners as I move on to book #4.

and Rescued Rascals

Luminare is a professional as it gets. My book, Chiseled: A Memoir of Identity, Duplicity and Divine Wine, is ready for prime time and a national book tour. The publisher used the finest editors, designers and proof readers. The expertise and attention to detail was first rate. The quality of the process and the book itself is masterfully produced. I particularly liked the personal encouragement and direction that was given to this process. I am thrilled to have given this life work to Luminare.

Danuta Pfeiffer 
Former co-host of the 700 Club, and author of Chiseled

The publishing experience with Luminare has been very rewarding because of their professionalism, courtesy, patience, fast turnaround, and quality work. An added benefit is the gaining of experience in the publishing process provided to a newcomer. They will be my first choice with the follow up book.
