“Having used Paul's ebook conversion and cover design services a number of times before, when I decided to prepare an title for print-on-demand, I had no hesitation in contacting him again. Exactly as previously, he provided a first class service from beginning to end and I am delighted with the end result.
From the initial stages of first drafts and so forth, he was wonderfully responsive at answering queries, ironing out teething issues, and resolving glitches - most of which were due to the intricacies of uploading the print ready PDF and wraparound cover to the Amazon site. He was contactable at the most ridiculous times late in the evening and over a weekend until I felt positively guilty sending him emails.
I have not the slightest hesitation in strongly recommending him to anyone who needs a cover designed, ms converted to whatever format is required, or indeed anything that a writer might require to get your manuscript ‘out there’. A terrific service which I will not hesitate to use again. I couldn't be happier with the result.”

“I reached out to Paul through his website when I needed some urgent assistance converting files for my book. Everything went through quick and smooth as you like so would definitely use his services again.”
“Paul has been a life-saver! He stepped in and helped me to self publish my book and my ebook, efficiently and cost-effectively. He also went the extra mile to help me when I couldn't figure some things out. I highly recommend Paul to anyone who is a first time self-publisher.”
“I have worked with Paul on the design, formatting and publication of ebook titles, as well as the design and implementation of my website and weblog. I can confirm he is adept, knowledgeable and professional in all such matters.”
Novelist and Screenwriter
“So pleased with the cover Paul designed for my novel The Black Hours. He managed to produce an image that was exactly how I'd envisioned the cover and the finished product is very professional. The design looks great both on the paperback version of the book and as an image on Amazon. Paul was also very patient with my complete lack of knowledge about the technical side of the whole process and completed the project swiftly. Thanks so much.”
“Paul Drummond is one of my favourite artists. He has the skills that you find in the masters; an ability to compose an illustration that depicts an entirely imagined and futuristic world. It feels possible to step outside the frame and discover more and more, a world rich in detail and design. His characters are the perfect counterpoint, with realistic rendering and expressed personality, and I often find myself asking ‘what is this character thinking?’ A rare skill in an artist and I'm honoured that a Paul Drummond illustration is the cover for my co-edited anthology Extreme Planets.”
Editor and author
“Paul is brilliant. He formatted two of my ebooks – By Midnight and Darkness Falls – for the US market and he did it quickly and efficiently to a difficult deadline. He calmly walked me through each stage of the process like a project manager, making sure I was keeping on top of things and fixing any problems as they arose. I felt I was in good hands every step of the way. I've already recommended him to two other authors and they have been equally impressed with his work. Highly recommended.”

“I want to say how delighted I am with the service you provided in preparing the Kindle version of my book. It was done quickly and very efficiently, even though it included some particular indexing problems. Your knowledge of the Kindle requirements was extensive, and your patience in coping with my comparative ignorance very re-assuring. Thank you for making the whole exercise as painless as possible, and at a cost which I consider to be very reasonable.”
author of ‘Our Way With Words’
“We've worked with Paul Drummond over the last year on two new brand identities, 90 Second Coach.com and Zaviour.
Paul was exceptionally quick to give us an inspired 90 Second Coach logo with minimum input from us and with only a few tweaks, all added with ease and a skillful eye as to the implications of any change, the logo was done.
Zaviour was a harder nut to crack because the name and logo was not to describe a product or service as such but more to create an identity that opened up so many possibilities and generated ideas. Despite this Paul, very patiently, created artwork that helped us make decisions and focus our minds and we are exceptionally pleased with the final result.
Paul is delightful to work with, calm, quick, supportive, flexible, creative, intuitive and skilled. Paul also gives very gentle but expert feedback which I believe is well worth heeding. As Zaviour takes flight and clients require their Zaviour channel to resemble their branding then it will be Paul we contact.”
The Forum Partnership
“Paul seemed to know almost psychically what our new website should look like and what we needed it to do. He then put it all together with remarkable patience, enthusiasm and speed. We need to constantly add new content to the site and the CMS Paul built for us is not only rich in features, but is very easy to use even for those in our firm with no previous experience at all. We've ended up with a very attractive and professional online presence and we couldn't be happier. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul's services to anyone.”
“We want to thank you for your time and effort in the design and construction of our website. We are delighted with its look and how it functions. For someone with only basic computer literacy like myself, you diligently and professionally put together our website and demonstrated its administration system in a way I can understand and use effectively. I have heartily recommended your services to other colleagues and hope to work with you in the future. And good news; after you put the catalogue section online we received our first order for furniture.”
“Paul worked within the organisation for a number of years. His enthusiasm, knowledge and hard work, in a challenging environment, delivered a number of high quality and user focussed sites. Always willing, dependable and extremely resourceful he worked in a professional and considered manner yielding great benefit to the organisation. I therefore recommend him unreservedly.”

“I'm very happy with the work Paul has done for me, and would recommend his web development services without hesitation.”
“Paul was responsible for creating our very first departmental website and for modifying it some years later. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, conscientious, responsive and dependable, he was always a pleasure to work with. At a time when almost anyone can claim to be a web developer, he stands out as a professional. I recommend him unreservedly.”
