I also founded, (in its day one) of the the worlds most visited online retro games console sales sites - Retro Trader.Com
I formed AUKL in 2000, and after working in the mobile / games / film arena for 10 years with AUKL and other companies I have been involved in, AUK has in the past year become we believe the partner of choice for publishers and authors wanting a safe and fair pair of hands to look after their eBook creation, sales and distribution. We partner with publishers and for no charge at all create multiple format eBook (by hand not by a piece of software) for multiple epub formats, iphone, ipad, kindle, pdf, etc. We then either directly or through the only portal possible, distribute the content to outlets, from Apple, to Amazon, to major retailers, libraries and universities, and new eBook reader platforms. With one of the largest independent and diverse catalogues outside of the major traditional publishers. We grow each day with new authors and publishers signed to us. We welcome contact from companies wanting either to work in partnership with us, to convert their content, or from companies needing / wanting content to sell through their outlets.
I am also personally expanding into the film and DVD production field, becoming involved in the creation and writing of several fledgling potential cinema and TV projects.
Product development - team managment and building - making things happen ! Alchemy !
Trust - the only thing any of us have worth having is our word.
