David C. Jeffrey — Through a Forest of Stars
Working with Jeff to get my first novel into print was one of the most positive parts of the whole process. He put together a great cover design based on some general concepts I had in mind and did an awesome job on the interior book design. But equally valuable, he helped me navigate the complex, and often bewildering, the world of self-publishing, all the details, and the strategies. He was professional throughout, friendly, open-minded, patient, and super easy to work with. It was genuinely a collaborative effort to make the final product the best it could be. Highly recommended!

Whenever one of my self-publishing (independent) authors starts to work with me, I direct them to Jeff Brandenburg for book design services. (I've worked with dozens of such authors.) If they sign on with Jeff, he always comes through with an attractive, professional interior and cover design that perfectly suits the material in the book. And he educates the author on some tricky publishing and direct-to-print procedures along the way. Plus, he delivers on time and on budget. What more can a person ask for?
As a first time author, I was thrilled to find out what a tremendous resource Jeff was in guiding me step by step through the book making process. Jeff always made himself available and stayed true to his projected timeline. During our brainstorming discussions on book covers and content formation, I felt like we were on the same page, and that he understood exactly what I was looking for. His finishing touch on the book that I had worked so hard to create was the cherry on the top.

Being new to the publishing scene, I was half puzzled, half concerned over the design and printing of my book. Google provides thousands of link that could help you but it was tough for a first-time author like me to decipher through various print layouts, ebook formats and multiple options to print the book. Jeff simplified everything for me - he provided me with a brief overview of the process, shared some very useful links and took over my project. He consistently provided his input throughout to the process and answered all my questions. The results couldn't have been better. I am pleased with the design and the layout of the book and would work with Jeff on my next book. Keep it up, Jeff.
Brad Graber, author of The Intersect
Jeff has been the key partner in getting my new novel to print. He designed the cover—which is amazing—completed the print and eBook layouts, and worked tirelessly to build my new website. Along the way, Jeff taught me about Mail Chimp, handled the roll-out of my launch campaign, and taught me how to make changes in the content of my website and work with Word Press. Jeff has been two steps ahead of me, anticipating my needs, and guiding me along. He's knowledgeable, capable, and infinitely kind and patient. I'm amazed by his talent, grateful for his kindness, and forever indebted to his expertise.
When Volcano Press needed the expertise of a book designer and graphic layout professional, we were lucky to have found Jeff Brandenburg. Jeff has not only worked meticulously with our authors,
editors, artists, and printers but brings with him a unique skill set that utilizes an artistic and creative approach. We’ve enjoyed the privilege of Jeff’s deft design in each book. His depth of
knowledge has saved time and commensurate dollars for our company.
Taking off our book publishing hats and now switching to music, when custom CD cover and interior design were needed, there was no question as to whom we turned to for our graphics needs.
Volcano Press, Kazan Media and Over the Edge wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Jeff Brandenburg for any and all design and typesetting work.
David Colin Carr, Freelance Editor
Working with Jeff is like being in Hawaii—there is easy movement, surrounded by lush scents and warm breezes, everything falling into place with a sense of perfection. I have brought Jeff in to do cover and interior design with several editing clients. They all feel we are a terrific team. They enjoy the process and the simplicity and fun of communication. Jeff is completely receptive even to endless niggling suggestions, efficient in his work and prompt in his performance.
Karen Kiester, author of Path of the Sacred Masculine
Jeff came highly recommended and fully lived up to that recommendation and then some! He is prompt and responsive and added so much to my book. He had wonderful ideas that greatly improved my "vision." I look forward to working with Jeff on future projects.
Aiden Hill, author of The Midnight Stranglers
Working with Jeff has been a wonderful experience. He is truly an expert at what he does; I found Jeff to be professional, creative with ideas, and a perfectionist when it comes to details. Since this was my first book project as a new author, Jeff guided me through all of the steps and educated me with how the publishing industry works. His design skills, ease of communication, and problem-solving abilities made my first publishing experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend Jeff!
David Levenson, MD, author of Maintaining Your Weight Loss: A Mindfulness-Based Guide to the Adventure of a Lifetime
Jeff did an outstanding book cover design and his interior design strikingly enhanced the readability and overall attractiveness of the material. He was a joy to work with—a great team player, always promptly responsive, and went out of his way to help me navigate the path to getting it self-published. I very highly recommend Jeff and if I ever write another book he is the first or second person I'd call.
