I checked out a list of Independent Formatters for my new book. Of all, Brenda seemed the most reasonably priced. I e-mailed her to ask could she work on my manuscript and how long it would take. I received her answer quickly. I must say I am pleasantly surprised. I am a computer illiterate and muddle through the best I can. It is refreshing to find some-one who does exactly what she promised to do quickly, efficiently and at a reasonable price. I have three more books that I am working on and if they need formatting I will be going right back to Brenda.

Thank You Brenda

With your help formatting my ebook, I was able to avoid marital strife.

My husband was supportive but I needed technical support that required a professional with experience meeting the requirements for being published in all electronic formats.

Thanks Brenda (or TrioMarketers) for taking my book those the last steps to publication.

We can not praise Brenda highly enough for her tireless work in converting JR’s 316 page book to digital. It is an image rich book with a complicated layout but Brenda pulled it together amazingly and loaded it to the various distributors. We absolutely recommend Brenda if need your eBook formatted and uploaded and we will be using her services again in the future.

I came across Brenda Van Niekerk’s name as she was recommended by Smashwords.

As this was my first attempt at self publishing, all the myriad of formatting rules for the different publishers seemed a bit overwhelming. I needed someone to streamline the whole process for me. Brenda not only did that (for a reasonable price I might add) but she was thorough, efficient and fast. She helped me get my book up and disseminated quicker that I had even hoped for.

I could not give Brenda a higher recommendation!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

TO SHOW YOU HOW I FEEL I WILL COPY AND PASTE HERE THE MESSAGE I JUST SENT TO MY KIDS.

BRENDA V NIEKERK REALLY KNOWS HER STUFF! SHE WAS NOT ONLY ABLE TO TAKE THE FORMULAS AND SUCH THAT WERE TYING ME IN KNOTS AND PUT THEM IN EBOOK FORMAT, SHE KNOWS THE BUSINESS. SHE SUGGESTED GOOGLE BOOKS AND WAS ABLE TO STRAIGHTEN OUT MY CONFUSION WITH RESPECT TO AMAZON AND KINDLE READERS. WHAT A FIND! I THINK GOD GUIDED MY THINKING WHEN I SELECTED HER NAME OFF THE RECOMMENDED LIST. AND SHE WILL UPLOAD MY BOOK TO THESE OTHER OUTLETS!

Praise and appreciation!

Hi Brenda, I just wanted to let you know that the book did make it through Smashwords and the premium catalog, and is now available through the Smashwords page: ttps://www.smashwords.com/books/view/355245 as well as through a variety of retailers like Barnes and Noble and Apple’s iBookstore! We’re very excited, and wanted to thank you for all your work helping us through this challenging process. Your work (and your patience) was very much appreciated. I would happily recommend you to others if you’d ever like me to do so.

Warm regards

I found Brenda at Smashwords.com list. She responded right away and was easy to work with.

Being that this is my first ebook, she patiently held my hand through numerous emails asking how the formatting and upload process worked and delivered the ebook ready to go in less than a week. She also does uploading but in this case my marketing company wanted to handle that. This ebook is the first in a series.

I will be working with Brenda for the next ones as well.

Thank you Brenda!

I salute her!

You must forgive me for English is not my first language. So tolerate the errors!

Brenda is the second person who formatted an ebook for me so I am able to draw a comparison. I never knew Brenda before and I never have seen her eye to eye. You can rest assured that she is a very professional woman who knows what she is doing. She finished my book and uploaded it to be send to Smashwords within 4 to 5 days. Her work was so good that my book qualified for the Smashwords’ Premium Catalog and it was so encouraging when I saw my book in this Catalog live on the screen. Further more, she was very much cheeper than the other person. There had been an error in the formatting that was done for me by the other person and Brenda fixed it for me without any payment. She was so help- full. I simply did not want to go back to the other person.

I have another book I am working on and I want to assure you that Brenda will do it for me and nobody else. The world we live in would have been a much better place if all of us could be like Brenda. I want to conclude by saying that I salute her! . . And it has given me great pleasure to write this letter to you.

Kind regards,

Exceptional timeliness, and rigorous attention to detail.

TOWERS head and shoulders over any other “service supplier”

Brenda is someone who does what they say they’re going to do and does it in a timely manner at an unbelievably good rate. I then needed additional work which she completed without delay and when she sent me the account I returned it immediately politely stating that she is under charging me and to please adjust the account four times. Even then she only settled at x2 increase. She can be trusted to offer the most competitive quotes and the very best services well beyond expectations. Ruargh Findlay. PS The Making of a Slut 340,000 words 90+ illustrations (most other formatter were not interested or said it was too big a job) and The few that ventured quotes were double that, what I was eventually charged. by Brenda V. Niekerk who did not hesitate to quote. She was wonderful and a pleasure to work with and even helped with the submission.

Thank you Brenda

Extract of my letter to Mark Mark Coker Smashwords

Dear Mr Coker – Smashwords You are no doubt a very busy man and I simply want to congratulate you on your remarkable concept and organization. What you have created and achieved is something many millions will benefit from. Congratulations and thank you. Second point – your very helpful ‘ How to Publish ‘ suggested a ‘ Marks list ‘ recommending service suppliers to assist . I simply wish to bring to your attention that there is one in particular that stands out, No! TOWERS head and shoulders over any other “service supplier”. Indeed the best I have ever come across in my 50 years of business experience relating to service. For the most impeccable , prompt and inexpensive service where nothing is too much trouble for the” formatter” Smashwords recommended. in Marks List. ie- https://triomarketers.com A.K.A. brendavanekerk@hotmail.com I cannot speak more highly of her services and her pricing. Indeed the very best value. Thank you for the best advice ever in recommending her to me, she was delightful and obviously judging by the vast amount of authors that have listed themselves on her website to sing their praises of her services. Brenda is indeed an very special person.

Thank you.

Vriende, ek wil graag vir Brenda Van Niekerk baie, baie dankie se.

Ondersteun asb haar besigheid, sy format eBoeke en bou websites onder andere. https://triomarketers.com

I highly recommend Brenda, as she not only gets your book the required Premium status at Smashwords, but also informs about the issues, in case you want to try it again by yourself. She goes an extra mile (re-formatting all my pictures/covers) and never gives up. She’s one of those rare people, who deliver – in time, and at an excellent price. Especially if you have tried ‘everything’, have special issues (lots of pictures, foreign language publishing …), she is doing it all and doing it fast.

Nobody better!

You have done a spectacular job.

Working with Brenda through www.Triomarketers.com was such a pleasure. I found her through Marks List on Smashwords.com. She reformatted several of my picture books for Sidewalk Stories. She was fast, efficient and such a pleasure to work with. She did everything I asked and more. They key factor was she knew what she was doing. I will hire her again and let others know to do the same. Five stars!

I came to Brenda with a fully designed book that was really complicated to format to Smashwords specifications. I don’t think Brenda has ever spent more hours on formatting any book than she did on mine.

She did much more than she was paid for to fix it and then uploaded it for me on the premium catalogue. Brenda, thank you from the bottom of my heart, you were a Godsend.

People, trust me on this, if you really want perfect results with formatting your book, don’t waste time and money going anywhere else. Brenda is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!

This is the fifth book Brenda has formatted for me.

It was the longest work so far and it was a word processing nightmare. I was so bummed out. Brenda stayed with it until she got all the kinks out. It’s like she works on people’s books as if they were her own. I can’t believe she’s so affordable for the amount of work she puts into each job.

I really lucked out when I picked her out of the list of recommended formatting services in the Smashwords help section.

Great quality work. Fast!
