About Janica Smith

Janica Smith is the owner and CEO of PublishingSmith where she leads a team that helps passionate, creative people who want to become published authors. One of her first clients introduced Janica as her Publishing Navigator. The title stuck and is a great descriptor of exactly what she does. She navigates the best path for her clients through the publishing process while making sure they avoid the many scams, mistakes and pitfalls that derail self-published authors.  She does all this with gentle encouragement and calm reassurance for the process.

Janica’s goal is to help her clients self-publish their book so it’s equal in quality to traditionally published books. Her promise is that if you hold your self-published book in one hand and a traditionally published book in the other, you won’t be able to tell the difference.

Janica has been instrumental to publishing over 100 books.  She has helped her clients establish more than 75 independent publishing companies. She enjoys taking care of details and providing the framework that allows creative people to flourish. She takes a comprehensive approach to the business of authorship and provides other business administrative support to her clients through another branch of her company called AdminiSmith. In 2014, she added another company, InstructionSmith, to the mix when she and Michelle Mack took over the training programs that certify Professional Virtual Author and Speaker Assistants.

Janica has called Austin, Texas home since 1973 when she arrived to attend the University of Texas. She enjoys spending time with her 3 grandkids who live nearby and her 2 youngest grandkids who live in Pensacola, FL. She and her husband of 43 years, Jim, love to travel and now Pensacola is one of their favorite destinations.
