Electronic Spark

They say that necessity is the mother of invention. And this is pretty much how The Electronic Book Company came into being. The spark that led to the creation of The Electronic Book Company came about when founder and CEO, Colin Timms, purchased his first eBook reader in early 2010. When he started to buy eBooks on-line, he was appalled by the large number of badly formatted and difficult to navigate titles that were being offered for download. What is more, many of the worst examples were those being offered by the big name publishers.

Sadly, there are still far too many poorly produced eBooks populating the major on-line bookstores. This is why The Electronic Book Company is fully committed to work to improve the standards within the industry and to ensure that when people purchase an eBook produced and distributed by us, they are guaranteed a pleasurable reading experience.

High Quality – Low Cost

The core of our business involves producing high-quality, low-cost, electronic books for the publishing industry and for independent authors. Our clients appreciate the fact that once they send us a manuscript, they can relax, safe in the knowledge that we will take care of all aspects of preparing, formatting and distributing their titles while they get on with their lives' in the real world… 

Ethical Publishing

The Electronic Book Company operates to strict ethical standards. Unlike many self-publishing companies we won't try to hard-sell you umpteen additional services, many of which are totally unnecessary. For example, if we feel that your book requires a copy-edit, we will tell you so, but are quite happy if you opt not to use our in-house services and instead ask a friend or family member to review your work. 

We have kept our pricing structure simple and transparent which ensures that when you are invoiced, there are no  additional costs from extras hidden in the small print.
