“Ken Guentert of [The Publishing Pro, LLC] took me by the hand and led me down the labrynthine paths of getting a book to publication. He was patient with my stumblings and kindly showed me where to go and where not to go. I have been enriched by my association with him and consider him a dear friend.”

"After discussing my manuscript with a variety of publishers throughout the country, we decided to work with Ken Guentert of the Publishing Pro. He seemed the most knowledgeable about publishing and the most realistic about readership. He surpassed our expectations in terms of editing, formatting, and cover design. He was also very patient with my endless revisions to the story, yet was able to assist me in regaining my focus to complete the publishing process."

"I've been attempting to publish for years. I thought it would be difficult, but a friend said Ken would make it easy. He was right. He made it easy … and fast … and fun. He worked with me every step of the way—from planning to copyediting, and from design to printing. Ken loves to collaborate. He always listened to what I wanted, always told me what he thought would work best (and why), and always encouraged me to follow my instincts. The result was beautiful."

"Hiring Ken at The Publishing Pro was one of the smartest moves I have ever made. He shepherded my book from a bunch of computer files to a quality published paperback book in a matter of weeks. The cover design is fabulous and I am totally satisfied with all of the services he provided for me. I recommend you retain him for your book!"

“The Publishing Pro did an outstanding job on my book, The Alchemy of Trust. Ken was incredibly responsive, with a turn-around time ranging from hours to around two days for very complex changes. One challenge was the large number of interior graphics in the book—I was fuzzy on how they should look, but Ken came up with a number of ideas and worked with me to get them just right. His cover design was top notch, again starting with my fuzzy concept and turning it into something I could be proud of. Finally, his early questions (size of the book, etc.) demonstrated an expertise far beyond what I could have come to on my own. I have recommended him to friends.”

“Dear Ken: I can't thank you enough for guiding me through the publishing process! Working with someone here in town and at hand made the process flow easily. Questions and concerns were always handled quickly. It was nice to be able to see the book as it progressed through each state and not just view it over a computer screen, communicating through email. I appreciate your openness to try different things to make the artwork stand out at its best. And I appreciate your patience and understanding in working with a first-time author and a long-time artist who is a bit particular on how her images are portrayed. I had thought this whole process would be long and difficult, but you helped me complete it quickly and with ease! I have already heard many wonderful comments about the book! Who knows maybe there's another one in the making."

Testimonials

“Ken Guentert is to publishing what a great chef is to cooking. For my book, he took some great ingredients—old neighborhood stories, family photos, traditional recipes, and a splash of ‘Italian attitude’—stirred in the English and served up exactly what I asked for but with more style than I could have imagined. I give him four stars.”
Franco Pisani, Chef of Paravicini’s Italian Bistro

“Ken was editor of my first book. Since then he has gone into the self-publishing biz and has been a big help to my colleagues looking for an alternative to publish and promote their books. His is skilled at helping writers walk through the self-publishing process and always available. Another plus, he is a very honest and decent person.”

“Everyone in Creede (Colorado) is very impressed with the quality of my book, which pleases me a lot. They love your cover. I have sold 200 copies already, mostly to stores (even to Borders), and even have had a successful book signing. I believe there are a lot more that I can sell more on my own, thereby increasing my profit and paying for the project within two years, which was my goal.”
