Praise for Blot Publishing

“Leigh is professional and fast. Her attention to detail is first rate and she has a wonderful eye for design. She’s also good at delivering to deadlines and her charges are very reasonable. She’s worked on several titles in my ‘Making Friends’ series of self-help books, and handled ebook formatting and paperback page design. As such, she has played an invaluable role in their success. Equally important, she is lovely to work with, so I’d warmly recommend her.

Sarah Rayner (Indie Publisher)

“Leigh was brilliant. We had a great chat about the work before she started, and her typesetting services were excellent. She was also really generous in sharing her knowledge about the publishing process as a whole. I would absolutely recommend Leigh and am looking forward to working with her again.”

Orla Owen (Author)

“I have no hesitation in recommending Blot Publishing for all your epublishing needs. Leigh Forbes offers a service that's efficient, reliable and friendly – and at all a highly competitive price.”

Debi Alper (Indie Author)

“Leigh has set recent titles among our publications, including some seriously fiddly volumes. Her visual sensibilities are excellent and her patience appears to be inexhaustible. Highly recommended.”

Dr Marion O'Connor (Monograph Publisher)

“Leigh is an outstanding designer, whose work is invariably of the very highest quality. She solves your problems and tackles the most complex tasks with great expertise and understanding.”
