Someone once said – “Ability is a wonderful thing, but its value is greatly enhanced by dependability.” When our Foundation discovered Carla Green at Clarity Designworks, we understood the truth of this statement.

After a decision to write a book about our organization, research began to indicate that the writing part would be easy compared to the actual book design and publishing part. And even though self-publishing made sense for us, it too, appeared to be complicated and daunting. Good luck was on our side when Carla was spotted being interviewed online. Her quiet and gentle spirit, coupled with her amazing wealth of knowledge, prompted us to contact her. It proved to be the smartest move we made!

Carla worked by our side from beginning to end. She explained each necessary step in detail, always conscious that everything related to book design and publication was new to us. She made suggestions beginning with who to contact for early copy-editing all the way through to the finished exterior and interior layout, which she did herself. The finished product was amazing and something about which our non-profit Foundation is extremely proud.

Myself, and the entire Atascadero Greyhound Foundation Board in Atascadero, California highly recommends Clarity Designworks. Carla’s ability proved unparalleled and her dependability to create an amazing book is assured.

Lighthouse — Weapon of Rescue

I had a book in me – and Carla took the words on the page and made them into the Amazon best-seller. Truly, she took my ideas on the cover and made them come to life. The interior layout was fantastic, including her creativity in my “30 days” at the back of the book. She was quick and timely and had things completed as promised. I highly recommend Carla and will use her again on my next book.

As new authors we really required a lot of support to get through the publishing process and Carla was there every step of the way to give us input, feedback and timely turnaround of what was required to publish our book. She was very supportive and accommodating of our ideas and changes to get the look we wanted. Her internal formatting skill and creativity took the readability of the book to a whole new level. Overall, Carla was very devoted and went beyond in helping us get the book that we feel very happy with. If you’re going the self publishing route I highly recommend Carla and Clarity Design for simplicity, quality and affordability wrapped in one service!

The Science of Protection, New Mavericks

Carla was so helpful during the whole process of formatting the books and getting them up on line. She was very knowledgeable, calm, and willing to go the extra long mile for us. My husband has Parkinson’s so publishing on Amazon was quite an accomplishment for us, but a bit torturous for him to be on the computer. Carla was consistently patient with us, answering our emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. She was also very proactive, reminding us of things that still needed to be done. We were actually sorry when we were done with everything as we wouldn’t be talking to her so regularly anymore. We highly recommend Carla Green and Clarity Designworks for so many of your formatting and self-publishing needs.

I greatly enjoyed working with Clarity and Carla to bring Conspiring with the Universe to a real book and a masterpiece! She is focused and caring! Every step of the process I was comfortable. You can trust Carla with your baby!

Carla was wonderful to work with. I am a first time published author and I did not have one clue as to how to get my book published. She guided me all the way through by phone, text, and email. I loved the video she produced for me on how to navigate the KDP website.

Grumpy Gus went from a late night inspiration to a real book. Thank you Carla!

Donna Layne, “Grumpy Gus”

It’s rare to find standout talent like Carla Green from Clarity Designworks. I had the pleasure of working with Carla on the design of my book, “A State of Decay: Your Dental Guide to Understanding and Treating “Meth Mouth”. I hired Carla as a cover designer after seeing her online portfolio of work, receiving positive reviews from her past clients, and discussing my vision for the project. She consistently delivered high quality and inspired designs in a timely manner. I was particularly impressed by her willingness to share “pearls of wisdom” with me about publishing and editing but most importantly impressed and proud of my cover designs. I highly recommend Carla to anyone who wants their book cover to “pop”!

It was a real pleasure working with Carla on my first book. Carla has many years of expertise. I had so many questions about my book, the process of getting it published, and what happens after. Carla was able to answer all of my questions, walk me through the different paths I could take, and what each scenario involved. She was extremely helpful in explaining the publishing process and straightforward about the costs associated with it. She was always very responsive (even during the holidays) and continued to help me after my book was published. I recommend Carla to new and experienced authors.

The Girl Who Said She Could

Chantal Contreras, “The Girl Who Said She Could”

Working with Carla on my book project was an absolute joy! She is truly an expert. Her book cover design (front and back) have received rave reviews from the people who have received my book. Her internal layout process and end product are visually appealing, and readers have commented on that, too. And she was so patient with me, always willing to answer questions, to explore ideas, to change things when asked. I could not have partnered with anyone any better for my book project. Not only is she an amazing professional she’s also a wonderful human being. So yes, I would use Carla again and recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Carla did an excellent job to get my book published. She worked with me through the whole process of cover concepts, design and color and content editing and formatting. She also did the work to get it self-published on Amazon. She was very knowledgeable and extremely easy to work with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!!
