I thought that writing a book was about, well, writing. The Jenkins staff helped me understand all the parts that go into publishing a book; writing, editing, layout, proofing, styles, fonts, distribution, cover art, and so much more. With their help I have a book on the market that I am as proud to look at as I am to read.
