Author Testimonials

A Darned Good Book is a very professional, very customer-friendly company. Two of my author friends recommended Jesse and his company to me when I got myself in a real jam. I had four books I needed help with and a short timeline to get them fixed. He was so helpful and very patient. Some of the corrections I sent him needed to be corrected. And then those needed to be corrected. All through this process, he was patient, timely, and well, just plain nice. I thank him from the bottom of my heart for helping me out, and I will absolutely be going back to him. He and his company have my highest recommendation.

—Author K.P. Gresham

A Darned Good Book gets a standing ovation from me. Thanks to Jesse Gordon for swift responses to my inquiries, clear instructions and deadlines (all of which he beat handily), and a beautiful ePub book I was proud to upload. Both speed and reliability—fabulous combination. Wonderful work!

—Helen Currie Foster, author of The Alice MacDonald Greer Mystery series

I approached Jesse for help, while struggling to format my first book in the Anya & Mishka series. And I ended up choosing him again and again for the rest of the books in the series. He’s precise, efficient, punctual and very obliging. Thanks, Jesse, for saving me every time and making my books look decent and acceptable by Smashwords Premium Catalogue and KDP. A thorough professional, that’s Jesse Gordon. I highly recommend him to others especially new writers like me.

—PR Krish, author of Anya & Mishka series

I was referred to Jesse when my previous formatter was suddenly no longer available, and I'm delighted to say Jesse is every bit as good as he was promised to be. Jesse produced beautiful interior content for my book in an incredibly short amount of time, at a modestly reasonable price. When my ARC team delivered a list of corrections that needed to be made for the print version, he bailed me out of the mess I made trying to edit a PDF format myself and sent me an invoice for less money than I charge for one copy of my paperbacks. If you need a professional to work with, I can't recommend anyone better than Jesse Gordon.

—Scott Matthews, author of the Adam Drake thriller series

Having previously failed to get my manuscript past the Smashwords EPUB check, I used Jesse Gordon's formatting service and was very pleased with the results. I was sent an invoice which specified the time the project would take and everything was then performed within the invoice's promised timeline. My manuscript passed the EPUB check on the first time of reloading. I highly recommend Jesse for anyone needing a quick and professional file conversion.
