We care

We've been where you are, and know how difficult it can be to learn all of the requirements necessary to publish your books. Just meeting the complicated file requirements alone can feel overwhelming. You're not alone. We want to help, and would love to help you achieve your goals.

Story behind Self-Publishing Nerd: Fourteen years ago, I took the plunge into the self-publishing world, after having had one of my books published by a small, independent press. I discovered it made better economic sense to form my own independent publishing company, Diamond Press, and publish my own books. It was a challenge to learn all of the print and ebook file requirements needed to publish the books. I also quickly discovered that it is impossible to create the PDF/x-1a:2001 files required for print without the correct software. I wanted to help other authors and publishers facing the same dilemma, so I began offering low-cost PDF file conversion services at Diamond Press. ( That business quickly grew into formatting print and ebooks for publication, and I also specialize in helping clients make their covers meet IngramSpark and Barnes & Noble’s difficult file requirements. I have helped hundreds of clients over the years–all of whom have found me either through my website, Diamond Press, or through the book I wrote, Book Formatting for Self-Publishers, available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The business has grown so much that I decided to start a team and launch Self-Publishing Nerd so we could offer a more comprehensive listing of services to clients.

I would love to help you achieve your publishing dreams, as well. If you have any questions, or if you’ve encountered any publishing problems, such as files that are being rejected by IngramSpark, please contact me. I would be very happy to take a look at your files and provide you with a plan of action to solve the issues. My goal is to save you time and eliminate all frustration from your publishing process. It is time for you to achieve your publishing dreams today!

“We’ve been self-publishing Middle Grade Fantasy since 2012. We try to do as much of the behind-the-scenes stuff as we can, but we found the formatting specifications for IngramSpark hardcovers confusing and the job required expensive software to get it right—if we could get it right. We almost gave up on the idea of having hardcovers entirely, until we happened to find Jennette. Wow, are we glad we did! Over several months’ time, she worked with us through our backlist and now we have beautiful hardcovers inside and out. She is professional, affordable, friendly, easy to work with, and won’t stop until the job is done right. :) Highly recommended. Thanks, Jennette!”

"I consider myself truly fortunate to have this on-going relationship with you, I’ll certainly be back to you as the third volume moves towards finalisation. Not only is your work beautiful, it’s a pleasure to work with you, and your patience is endless! On a more mundane note, your pricing is beyond being extraordinarily fair, considering all the work involved.”
