"I am technically challenged when it comes to converting my heavily illustrated chapter books to eBook format. So I thoroughly investigated eBook conversion services both locally and internationally, and Findlay Books digital formatting service is second to none. They offered a fast, cost-effective way of getting my book converted to the right formats, in an extremely prompt manner. I must have asked some pretty lame questions, and they responded with the utmost professionalism. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them – they will certainly be forming a part of my crack team of professionals going forward."

"Joy and Bevan anticipated my needs and were able to accommodate them easily when formatting my latest children's book. They were available to answer all my questions and made the process very smooth.  I would highly recommend their services to others."

"I knew nothing about how to get my book onto Amazon and/or Kindle until I met with Joy Findlay and she shared her knowledge and expertise with me, pointing me in the right direction.
Findlay Books also helped me correctly format the e-version of my book for Kindle; knowing there was somebody who knew the ropes in my corner who I could ask questions to made a huge difference in what can be a rather stressful process.
Now my book is available all around the world on Amazon and Kindle, thanks to Joy.  I can't recommend Findlay Books enough."

"I would highly recommend Findlay Books for digitizing your books to Kindle format. I submitted a 300-page book on Christian Theology that included a very large table of contents, many sub-chapter headings, two different font sizes and several complex charts. My original MS Word and PDF files were as required by my hard-copy printer who also did a good job. But much more than a single conversion run from them to Kindle was required. Bevan at Findlay Books supplied several interim conversions and was polite and patient in addressing my requirements to get a quality product, all within a two-week period. Some others offering a similar service turned away my product because of its character or wanted to charge almost four times more than Bevan, before even knowing the challenges my work presented. Others also indicated several months to final product."

The brave new world of self-publishing comes with many opportunities and perils for any aspiring author.  As an author on a budget, pulling together a team of professionals to make my written work of art available to the public is no small task.  It is my sincerest pleasure to recommend Findlay Books to any author looking to have their masterpiece properly formatted to work on today’s high tech gadgets.  And may you live to write again, for the next story is on the horizon.

Joy and Bevan (aka Findlay Books) have been a pleasure to work with. They are efficient, fast and fair.  They have formatted all of my 5 ebooks that are now on sale on amazon.  They are very friendly and professional and I am very happy to promote them to the world.

I wanted to comment on the digital formatting of a recent book that I worked on.  I don't have any real experience with digital formatting and I wanted to entrust my illustrations with someone who was sympathetic and caring of the finished product.  I found this is the case with Joy [at Findlay Books].  She has taken a file and weaved her magic upon it to create a formatted book where the images look vibrant and as colourful as I hoped they would be.  I will definitely recommend the services of Joy to anyone that needs them and hope to work with you in the near future.

When I first started looking into publishing my first ebook I was overwhelmed by how much I had to learn.  Luckily for me I found Findlay Books, they helped me along the way – especially with the all-important formatting to enable my file to be uploaded to Amazon.  If you want to start self-publishing then Findlay Books are who you need to help you on your way.  I know I will return to them when I have my next book ready to publish.
