Our Team

Jessica LeBeau, owner, is a seasoned writer, editor and book layout designer. She works with self publishers to prepare their manuscripts for publishing either via self publishing channels or with traditional agents/publishers. Many clients she works with submit manuscripts that are family histories and genealogical works. She also has designed city history books and personal journals.


Lifetimes Publishing was created in 1994 before the self-publishing industry was really getting started. The team (consists of a graphic designer, writer, editor, photojournalist, and sales executive) works with clients on custom layouts and editing of original works in InDesign software. “We are able to dedicate ourselves, wholeheartedly, to clients in doing a custom job (not a cookie cutter internet project) because we want to see the finished product just as the person has envisioned it,” Jessica says. 


Publishing Sites:

Lifetimes Publishing has relationships with several printers across the country who specialize in self publishing books in hardbound, softbound, smythe-sewn, perfect bound, spiral, or saddle-stitched bindings. Whether the client has a small book project (family vacation or diary) or a large family genealogical book, we can accommodate them.
