I'm a highly skilled & experienced in all things about the printed word -- that might be creative and/or technical writing or it might be print book design & publication (specializing in creating printer-ready files for CreateSpace, Lightning Source, Lulu and other Print-On-Demand services) and converting manuscripts into the popular eBook formats (.mobi for Kindle and epub for iPad & Nook).

All eBook conversions that I execute are tested on a Kindle Fire, Kindle for iPhone and an iPad to ensure complete acceptance by the eBook distribution outlets.
