Overview

Hey there, I'm Andri and I am passionate about digital publishing in all forms. I am currently completing my Masters in Digital Publishing and have been working as a freelancer on numerous digital project for authors and publishers such as Briza and Troupant for the last 2 years. I enjoy helping author with unconventional books find a place for their books by utilizing the new digital opportunities available to us in publishing. Not all books are ment to become eBooks, but I help authors create eBooks that give the same sense of excitement and joy when read as any print book. Each eBook I create is unique. I also advise authors on the best online selling platforms (Amazon is not always the way to go for your book) and I help author create a social media presence to promote their eBooks. If you would like to create a beautiful eBook I am here to help you realise that dream with editing, eBook development, design and consolation services.
