Artisanal eBooks; that sounds like a contradiction. Yet, making beautiful and cross-compatible eBooks is just that, a craft. Nowadays, people are reading in ever changing ways. The current state of eBooks is only the beginning. Since 2006 I've been involved in publishing, both for the web as in print. Having sold the publishing company I ran for the past 6 years, I've recently specialized in helping publishers develop their eBook production, distribution and discoverability. Specifically, I'm skilled at: * converting digital files to ePUB and mobi books, taking good formatting, footnote and website linking and proper image placement into account; employing HTML, CSS and RegEx knowledge. * converting digital files into, or creating from scratch rich content ePUBs, either with a fixed layout or taking advantage of the full text-reflowable capabilities of ePUB. * distributing ebooks to the diverse market places on the web. * making use of SEO, SEM and other methods to increase the discoverability and marketing of both eBooks and general books. * building websites for specific books and small businesses. I may be stating the obvious when I say that all produced eBooks come with a validation-for-distribution guarantee. I have lived and worked all over the world, including Los Angeles, CA. I'm currently living and working in Utrecht, The Netherlands and am of Dutch nationality. I speak English, Deutsch, Francais and Nederlands.
