I'm now on my fifth book with The Partnership and highly recommend them. They are quick, accurate and forbearing of clients' occasional idiocy. They have done very well by me as the ebooks show - see Telling Only Lies, A Private Inquiry and others.
After the files for my first book "A dark winter nightmare" became corrupted, I was, as you can imagine quite devastated. Luckily though, I had a printed version of the manuscript, and, not having the time to type the whole thing out again (I type at a snails pace) I mailed the manuscript to ebook partnership to have the printed copy digitised using their scan/ocr service, and I must say, that the results were excellent. Ebook partnership did everything for me, including conversion of the file to e pub and mobi and also to designing a cover. I also signed up for one of their ebook distribution packages, which, in itself is a godsend and very well priced. Having used all of their services, I thoroughly recommend them. Ebook partnership are reliable and efficient, yet most of all trustworthy, and Matt and Diana are always there to answer any questions I may have. When I finish my next novel, I shall not think twice about contacting ebook partnership.

Quality of Workmanship
Value of Service
They've been a pleasure to deal with. Made the whole e-publication process a breeze for a technological ignoramus like me, and all with a personal touch which makes all the difference. I like the ongoing support too, by way of some Jolly Good Advice in my inbox. Have already recommended them to one friend who feels daunted at the prospect of the whole ebook shebang, and would certainly do so to anyone else in the same boat. If that's not a mixed metaphor.
From the moment I first made contact with ebookpartnership.com and spoke to Matt or anyone else in the office I was impressed by their willingness and patience to answer my naive questions and gently educate me about the nuances of e-book publishing. Diane advised me which was the best route (and pointed out that my idea of the considerably more expensive route was not right for my book). all before I had signed up for their services, which I decided to do some months later.The same level of support and care was evident in all subsequent communications with Miriam throughout the formatting process and launch of my book. I thought their fees were reasonable and felt that I was not just a number, but a new relationship to develop. I deeply appreciate the fact they handle all the distribution and the royalties - all very transparent - and to know that everything comes directly to me, with nothing creamed off the top. This helps me gain an immediate perspective on how sales are doing in terms of covering my initial expenditure and also to see in which parts of the world my book is selling and where I could focus more attention. My book is being translated into several languages - initially Chinese - and without question ebookpartnership.com is who I want to work with again and again. They are professional, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and I believe offer good value for money too. Highly recommend!.
Well, I think I'd give Value of Service a 5++ if possible...
Everyone was so helpful, friendly and quick with answering my questions, doing things and getting my eBook launched.
Thanks you all from Heather to Diana to Matt :-)
It is not easy working with people one only has contact to via e-mail, but everything went smoothly thanks to the teams commitment.
