Great People

Our team is comprised of some of the best and brightest out there. We’ve put together a great blend of experienced writers, graphic artists, photographers and a couple of nerds —yep, you need those to make the magic happen and we love them for that.

Pukiyari’s team members will work 24/7 on your project, and give it their all during the time each one of them is involved with your book. This process is as important as it gets for all of us involved; so once we get working on your book, that’s all we can think about.

One thing that differentiates Pukiyari is that to keep our overhead down and our options diverse and open, we hire freelancers as needed. We go out of our way to find exactly what your project needs and assign you a team for the duration of the publishing process.
