About Books Fluent

Blaze your own trail.

If you want to publish your own book, there are now opportunities like never before in the history of publishing. Books are our language, and we want to help you become fluent, too. We work with authors in all genres, including fiction, young adult, children’s literature, self-improvement, business, nonfiction and inspirational.

In 2007, when the publishing world was thrown into chaos by the rise of independent publishing and literary e-commerce, our team started teaching publishers and literary agencies how to survive–and thrive–in this new paradigm. We were able to do this because our parent company, JKS Communications, was the only book publicity firm at the time that had been working for years with both traditionally and indie published books, capitalizing on the strengths and understanding the weaknesses of both.

We have been helping authors create their own publishing imprints and publish beautifully crafted books for a decade. We know how to make your book look as polished and professional as those released by traditional publishing houses, and we’ll help you connect to the readers you want to reach.

How do we do it?

We are a team of publishing industry experts with more than 25 years of experience. We worked for major publishing houses, bookstores, influential book trade publications and the top book distribution company. Our Books Fluent team works to produce books that meet (and exceed) strict industry standards. The books we create are professionally produced from start to finish, including editing, cover design, interior layout and ebook formatting. We also help bring your book to market by securing ISBNs, registering your work with the Library of Congress, creating metadata for online retailers and managing your online distribution (via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc).
