Carla was a joy to work with. She is very knowledgeable and the quality of her work is excellent. She responded promptly to questions asked and simplified the process. I highly recommend her services.

Is Your Loved One Mental?

Dr. Steven Swanson, “Is Your Loved One Mental?”

We would never have come through the publishing process of This Son of York’s second edition if it hadn’t been for Carla’s friendly, expert, and timely support. And considering the nightmare it became—especially with KDP and the book jacket problems, we were pleasantly surprised when the invoice was submitted. Carla is absolutely worth every penny she charges! Highly recommend her professional and superior skills.

This Son of York

Anne Easter Smith, “This Son of York”

I could not say enough about how wonderful Carla is to work with. In addition to having the highest level of professionalism, and extraordinary work ethic, she is also very patient and supportive. Book writing can be a lonely endeavor, but Carla makes you feel like you are on a team. I have said, and mean it sincerely, I want to write another book just to work with Carla and Clarity Designworks again. If this was a five star rating, I’d give her ten!

The Claimant

Rachel Weinhaus, “The Claimant”

Carla is the absolute best!! She has provided an outstanding experience while working on the design of my latest book. She is thorough and patiently explains the process and goes above and beyond. My book turned out absolutely amazing. She even helped set up the sales channels on Amazon and Ingram Spark. I look forward to working with her again and highly recommend her services.

Street Dog

Ursula Vari, “Street Dog”

After having four books published, I decided to work with independent book consultants. Carla was recommended to me. I looked at her work, was very impressed, and I decided to go with her. I have worked with publishers and had the benefit of their efforts. Carla’s work was in every respect consistent with or exceeded publishing house work. The cover design was exceptional and so was the formatting. Trading Innocence shows the benefit of her fine hand. I recommend her without reservation.

Trading Innocence

James Ardaiz, “Trading Innocence”

I found Carla once my book was ready to go and I needed design to complement a story that happened in 4 countries eighteen years ago. She heard my ideas and brought them to glorious life. I am so proud of the design of my book and I’ve been able to reach many people with it, thanks to Carla’s helpful guidance. I hope I come up with another story to write, so that I can work with Carla again!

Saturn Return

Mark Halpert, “Saturn Return”

I strongly recommend you consider working with Carla for any and all of your book publishing needs. Carla laid out my book, The Perfect Free Throw. Carla also did the cover design and even made the recommendation for a shorter title (Original title: The 18 Laws of the Free Throw). This is my second book and I have used multiple editors and layout designers. Carla is the best out there! Aside from her amazing work, it is evident that she loves what she does so much that you will certainly get more than you expect at a price that is affordable.

The Perfect Free Throw

Mark Kampa, “The Perfect Free Throw”

I was referred to Carla to help me publish a book of my memories. Before selecting her, I asked if she would be willing to read the manuscript of approximately 140,000 words. As I intended to insert many (150) photographs in the book, I wanted her familiar with the stories. Not only did she read the manuscript, she scanned the 150 photos and inserted them in the appropriate chapters and pages. She then guided me regarding book size, paper stock, type style and font, cover design and much much more. She suggested a publisher that would provide a soft cover proof before doing the printing run. I found sixteen corrections going through the proof. The book would have had some glaring errors if she hadn’t insisted on this step. I have received numerous compliments on the quality of my book and the credit goes to Carla!”

Rick Balzer, “A Laguna Kid”

Carla is my secret weapon for publishing books! She makes my books look great, but she is also a fantastic project manager. She keeps all the details and dates in order, reminds me of critical to-dos on all the platforms involved, and goes the extra mile to make sure the book comes out on time and in excellent shape. I recommend her to my book coaching clients all the time and will be using her myself again soon. She’s a top-notch pro!”

Blueprint for a Book

Jennie Nash, “Blueprint for a Book”

In the crowded book publishing world, Carla is the real deal. She makes self publishing a book seamless! She explained the process clearly, laid out clear timelines, and patiently answered my many questions. Speaking of patience, she incorporated my (at times contradictory) feedback about the interior formatting and cover design with grace and professionalism.

Best of all, she creates beautiful, eye-catching book covers that stand out in a crowd.

I wholeheartedly recommend Carla, and am happy to share more details with anyone considering working with her.
