Jain was invaluable to my book project. She kept me on track and was always reminding me what needed to get done, something I was lacking. Jain is the ultimate professional, she really knows what she’s doing with regards to book publishing and production values. I can’t say enough good things about her! —Douglas Merriam, author/photographer, The Santa Fe Farmers Market Cookbook
Jain Lemos makes magic! She took my really rough notes and a thick file of images and turned this brew into an elegant and beautiful book, called by one well known personality “a masterpiece.” More than that, she saw what was possible when others might have shied away. The result is a book acclaimed by hundreds of people (sales are in the thousands), including Dr. Wayne Dyer of Public Television renown and many times on the NY Times bestselling list, Dewitt Jones, 20 years a National Geographic photojournalist, George Lepp, Field Editor at Outdoor Photographer magazine, among others. People say the book is “awesome,” “inspirational,” “so beautiful,” an “art piece.” Jain produced this book. She was always there with answers to my many questions and concerns and professionally guided me through the creative and publishing process. In short, Jain was a delight and a friend and always said, “Richard, it will all work out OK.” It did! —Richard Turner, author/photographer, I Can’t Always See My Path, But I Keep on Walking
Jain is a gem! I had two blogs and a website, but nothing was up to date or organized. With a book being published, the sites had to be merged and redesigned. Jain knew what to do and organized it all. She merged my sites seamlessly and updated all of my domains to one centralized host. Jain accomplished all of this in just a few weeks time, and gracefully. I’m very satisfied and pleased. She’s great with details and followup. I highly recommend Jain for websites and any type of publishing project. She’s timely and very talented! — Margret Henkels, author, “Is Your Horse 100%?”
