Jera Publishing

We bring your book to life!

For us, it’s all in the name: Jera is a Nordic rune, meaning “harvest,” that represents the rewards of patient, hard work. Jera is not only what we strive to embody as a business, but also what we strive to provide you, the author: a professional, polished book that reflects the hard work you put into it.

Jera Publishing is a team of self-publishing specialists, offering high-quality, affordable services for the indie and self-publishing author: cover design, interior layout, eBook conversion, marketing, and self-publishing consultation. Having worked with hundreds of authors over the course of over ten years, we have the experience to help you navigate the self-publishing process, produce a book you’ll be proud of, and, ultimately, bring your dream of authorship to fruition.

“Highly recommend Jera Publishing! They did an outstanding job on my technical non-fiction book. Other books that I have published I used the professional services of CreateSpace and was not happy with the results. Jera provides their service at a reasonable cost and you actually get to speak to someone. Jera Publishing was very responsive to any concerns I had and provided excellent suggestions for my book. Will certainly hire again for any future needs.”

“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.”

“Over the past five years Jera Publishing has conducted both layout and cover design for eight of our books, two of which have won USA Book News awards. They provide excellent interaction towards creating first class products both inside and out. They are always prompt, courteous and a great team with which to work preparing books and eBooks ready for publication.”

“The service that Kimberly and her team have provided to me has been simply outstanding. They have guided me through a minefield with expert advice at every turn. I recommend them to other authors left, right and centre with good reason. Jera as a company, are as good as it gets. Thank you, Kimberly, for the clarity, focus, and personal attention from you and everyone at Jera. For others reading this, if you are considering using Kimberly and Jera’s services – just do it!”
