Like all writers I’m proud of my work, whether it’s in the shape of a current manuscript, or a book published many years ago. Looking at many of the books published on eReaders, some of them best sellers, the last thing I wanted when I decided to turn my books in to eBooks, was to have them appearing with typos, misspellings, whole paragraphs misaligned, and lines of type cut off.
I was aware that there were people offering to take my manuscripts and convert them to eBooks for ten dollars a hit, but I knew I wouldn’t feel happy putting my work in the hands of someone who would treat it with such disrespect.
So I was stuck. I couldn’t do the conversions myself – hey, I’m a writer – yet I didn’t want my books appearing all around the world as an untidy mess on Kindles, iPads and the rest.
Luckily for me, I found Peter Ramshaw at eText Press Publishing www.etextpress.com Peter, a writer himself, has had years of experience in publishing and as many years of experience in IT. The two combined made him the ideal choice for me, as the sole focus at eText Press is quality.
Peter and his people at the company worked on the Word manuscripts of my books, converting them to all known eReader platforms. In the process they came across a few typos even my publishers had missed. Now my books are up on Kindle and all the others and they look great. Not a glitch in sight.
Which means I continue to be proud of them.
