Testimonial: JGKS Press Publishing
I'm publishing my first Novella with JGKS Press. I know that I could not have completed this experience without the help of Gini Grossenbacher. She guided me through every step of developmental editing. I've learned so much and encourage anyone writing a book to go through this process. Your book will be so much better with another set of eyes. JGKS Press is an excellent choice.
