Book cover for the novel Through Tender Thorns

Pedernales Publishing was recommended to me by a satisfied client. The company was described to me as trustworthy, experienced, and interested in only publishing high quality books.

I called Pedernales and spoke with Jose, the owner. He spent a great deal of time with me going over the services and costs. His price was very reasonable and his services sounded great. There was no pressure to sign a contract. Jose was interested in “helping” Indy authors to publish. I had enough experience to know that what he was offering was a great value, so when my third novel was ready for publishing, I called Jose and established myself as his client. The timeline was mine to control and I felt comfortable and supported.

Here is what I loved about working with Pedernales Publishing:

  • Whenever I called Pedernales Pub., Jose answered the phone. You just don’t get that with other companies. I was told I could call him or text him with my questions and concerns.
  • Included in my costs was a book cover design. The graphic artist listened carefully and nailed the cover. It is a beautiful book.
  • Jose did my interior formatting. Making the process very simple for me, he took great pains in assuring my book was the best it could be.
  • Jose was supportive, encouraging and constructive.
  • Jose knows his field. He has been doing this for more than a decade, written books himself and is empathetic. He doesn’t schmooze or lie, but rather guides you through a process he knows very well.
  • Jose helped me enjoy a smooth launch and my book was better for his efforts. He knows how to get the job done so you have a nice profit margin for each book you sell.

I am presently researching my fourth book and will be sure to use Jose and Pedernales Publishing again. I received a “gold standard” of publishing service.
