T. L. Callies

Let me start by saying Jason is phenomenal and I cannot recommend him highly enough. His work is exceptional, his responsiveness is first-rate, and the finished product is gorgeous — beyond what I had even hoped for (and I am not exaggerating when I say that). Jason really saved me from a tough situation (and I am not exaggerating when I say that either). Before I reached out to him, I had been racing the clock against a crushing deadline and had nearly given up hope on being able to pull things together in time. That’s when several people on

As a hybrid author (indie and traditionally published), it’s always a challenge to find trustworthy partners to work with. This is particularly true when it comes to everything to do with production: editing, formatting, etc. So when I saw Mark Dawson recommend the folks at Polgarus Studio, I decided to give them a try for my next book. In short: I was not disappointed, on the contrary. Working with Jason and Marina is a breeze: I mailed them the information and explained my vision for the book, they asked me some questions and we fine-tuned the approach to get it

Being a first-time author, I was a bit overwhelmed with all the ins-and-outs of what goes into publishing a book, but the Polgarus Studio team patiently, professionally and promptly guided me along the way. Marina clearly explained the process and what to expect, making me feel no question was too silly. Jason did exceptional work formatting my book (both e-book and print), often anticipating my desires before I even asked. It is refreshing to see a company that has the experience and capability to command the respect of big-name best-selling authors, and yet, can service those of us just getting

I stumbled upon Polgarus Studio by doing a google search on book formatting services. I checked out their Facebook page as well and saw that they had pretty good reviews. From there I decided to give them a try. I liked the services that Jason & Marina provide. What I liked the most was the quick turnaround with communication. In addition, the services provided took a lot of pressure off of my shoulders. I will be using this company again for future projects. Thanks again Jason & Marina! Blindsided (ebook, print)

Chevelle Legami

Through online research, I discovered that Polgarus Studios came highly recommended and through working with them, I can attest to why that is. I contacted Marina who was very welcoming, took the time to carefully lay out the steps of how the process would go, which provided me with a sense of comfort and handed me over to Jason. This being my debut book, I was undereducated about all things formatting and publishing a platform which were the two services that I requested of Polgarus Studios. Jason was extremely patient with my ignorance and took the time out to make

India Kells

As a self-published author, my to-do list is huge and I have to think about everything. When I need to collaborate with professionals, I want to find people who love their work, are meticulous and have their customers at heart. That’s exactly what I found with Jason and Marina! They formatted (ebook and paperback) two of my books (Breaking Point and Broken Magic) and I’m so happy with it. I know who to call for my next work. I highly recommend Polgarus Studio! Breaking Point (ebook) Broken Magic (ebook, print)

Meagan Hurst

As a new author (and self-publishing to boot!) all the pieces required to get a book ready to go live has been daunting. Despite reassurances from other self-publishing authors who told me I should format my books myself, I wanted to ensure When the Kingdom Falls looked its absolute best. After researching formatters online, I stumbled upon Polgarus Studio, and I couldn’t be more delighted and relieved I did. Both Marina and Jason are beyond helpful, and their patience, friendliness, and professionalism was incredible, and I definitely recommend them to anyone who wants that extra polish for their work. Plus,

Paul C.R. Monk

After working with a pricey online editorial service I decided to take the advice of a best-selling indie author who also runs an author FB group. So I contacted Marina via the website who responded promptly with the quote and the possible time frame both of which were much better than my previous provider’s. The instructions and feedback exchanges with Jason after he sent me the first draft were professional and friendly. The final interior design was impeccable with zero come-backs from CreateSpace. I would highly recommend Marina and Jason at Polgarus Studio and look forward to working with them

When I decided to produce print versions of my novels using Createspace, it was immediately apparent that I needed professional formatting, as my skills and desire in that area were nonexistent. A perusal of the net showed a glut of professional formatters advertising their skills, and it’s more than a little daunting trying to pick one. I’m not sure why I picked Polgarus Studio but it turned out to be a fortuitous choice. My first contact was with Marina, who was unfailingly helpful, encouraging, and alleviated any concerns I might have had concerning the process and in dealing with a
