These are genuine testimonials from some of my satisfied clients. I enjoy a 100% Customer satisfaction rate and much of my business comes from recommendations and referrals.
“When I asked Annie to set up an author website I only had a few days to the launch of my first book. She managed it all at high speed and I was delighted with the result – even then there was time for her to make sure I got exactly what I wanted and make helpful suggestions to a novice. Now I’m writing the third book updating the site has been easy, with answering technical questions on the way. You’re in good hands here, and do have a look anyway at the website to judge for yourself.”
“So you have written your first book. That’s a great achievement and you deserve your book to be noticed. So you start by giving your family free copies and hope they might set the trail ablaze. But whether you are planning another book or just wishing to publicise your first book, you need publicity and that starts with having your own website.
I started with a catch-all site website which had poems, books, short stories, talks, and just about everything you could imagine to view or read. Then disaster struck. My web designer retired and I could not add my latest three books to my site. By that time, I was on the committee of the Society of Authors in Scotland and compared to my committee members sites; mine looked like an Aladdin’s cave. It did not direct the viewer to books. There were too many distractions.
I was directed by The Society of Authors to DIGITAL PLOT where Anne Pennington, the director, and her team created a specific book orientated site for me. It now looks like a professional site and what’s more they have given me the tools to add books. It’s the best decision I have made and I just have to share it with any first time author or one who wants to upgrade their first website and see how the professionals get theirs done. They are cost effective and make sure you get them to add a site visitor counter. That will prove how Digital Plot works for you. See the site hits grow. Get in touch with Digital Plot and seek their friendly advice. You have made a friend in Ann and Ian. Digital Plot is a great friendly and knowledgeable team with a long list of distinguished clientele. Be part of them and welcome yourself into the web of your dreams. ”
“Annie Pennington of Digitplot recently created my web site and was a joy to work with. After an initial meeting she interpreted exactly what I had in mind and came back with some inspirational ideas. Once I had agreed the design, she created the site very quickly and efficiently. I have received many complimentary comments about www.westlondonwalks.co.uk and all I can say is that they are all due to Annie. Thank you Digitplot.”
“I chose Annie and Ian at Digitalplot to create my new website and I’m so glad I did. They are super easy to work with and were instantly in touch with what I wanted. I write middle grade fiction and needed the website to look attractive to children and adults – a tough request. They achieved that middle ground perfectly. I also wanted to reflect my Cornish heritage and use my painting of Mousehole Harbour to do that. Annie picked out the main colours from the picture to give continuity to the design and content. She even set up an internal blog for me. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results. Thank you, both.”

“I get so many compliments on the site and I am so grateful for all of your hard work with it. Please let me know if I can ever speak to a potential client as I would love to share how positive I found the experience of developing the site with you was. ”

“With the release of a new book series, I needed a new web page, and Anne Pennington of Digitalplot was an excellent choice. Anne is thorough and professional, and worked closely with me to produce a site that had all the features I was looking for.
Anne’s attention to detail and skill as a web designer has given me a site that I’m proud to link to. It’s easy to use and update and a huge improvement over my old site. I’m happy to recommend Anne to anyone who’s looking to either develop a new site or update a site to the latest technology; not only is she skilled and careful in her web design to ensure that her client is completely satisfied, she is a delightful person and a pleasure to work with.”

“Through sheer good fortune a client passed me Digitalplot's business card when I mentioned I was looking to have my website re-done. I was quoted on February 18th and the site launched March 19th. The guys stuck to the budget and have been extremely helpful in guiding me in new areas such as social media which are so important now and about which I knew very little. I gave a clear brief and an indication of the style of site that I would like. My new website looks exactly as I wanted it to do. I have also been given some excellent advice and am following up on all the suggestions that have been made. SEO matters are always something of a grey area when talking to many companies, but the Digitalplot team have been very honest and open about the supposed "black art" of getting google to like your site and jump up the rankings. I would gladly recommend them to anyone who needs a new website.”
Jason’s site was built in partnership with IY e-Solutions.
“This is a request to list my author's website, www.simonlouvish.com , among your authors' lists, as it has been up for some months now. The website was designed for me by Annie Pennington of Digital Plot (www.digitalplot.co.uk) , and she has done a terrific job on the site, which was previously much too complex and which has now been rendered clear and efficient. I would not hesitate in recommending her to your members – in fact I picked her out from the ad in The Author.”
Simon’s site was built in partnership with IY e-Solutions.
“ Make your own site first, then go to Annie at digitalplot to get the job done properly. I did, and enjoyed a prompt, friendly, efficient service with excellent results”
“ For a quite a time I dithered about whether or not to have a website and it was only when I saw those designed for other authors by digitalplot that I went ahead. I am delighted with the end result and have only praise for Annie Pennington for her skill, good taste and patience in dealing with the many editorial twists and tweaks that I imposed upon her. I would encourage any author who wants to establish a presence on the internet to get hold of Annie.”
“ I’d like to recommend Annie at Digital Plot (who already has many recommendations on the SoA site). She has built me a lovely site and is very patient and easygoing, and loves working with authors.”
“I’ve just had my website designed by Digitalplot and I am absolutely chuffed about it. After the initial brief Annie came up with some good looking layouts, and once I provided her with the contents she very quickly produced the whole website. The service was prompt and straight forward, and both my business email account and the website were up and running in no time. Annie has dealt with my feedback, amendments and questions in a very friendly, flexible and competent way and has created a truly individual website for my business. It was a pleasure working with her and I particularly enjoyed the excellent communication and her exceptional helpfulness. I can recommend Digitalplot without hesitation.”
“Like many impecunious authors, I had struggled along, writing and fiddling with my own website for years. Then a new two-book contract gave me the impetus to do the job properly. I turned to the member pages of the Society of Authors website looking for advice and saw a strong following for Annie Pennington at Digitalplot. Two weeks later, and at very reasonable cost, I now have a new website which exceeds my expectations. Now I see why so many authors have followed this path. Annie is a pleasure to work with, has creative flair and gets results.
“I've been getting a good reaction to the lovely website, lots of interest and enquiries, so thankyou. Its great that you don't use a template, it makes the website so much more creative and personal, and I particularly like the way you used my fan mail letters as a background.”
Digitalplot combines affordability with painstaking professionalism. Anne Pennington showed diligence and great patience with a web neophyte, making sure that my site was just as I wanted it.
Designer Annie Pennington has a lot of experience of working collaboratively with authors in the creation of bespoke websites very different in quality from tame template efforts. She is, above all, wonderfully understanding of and patient with the finicky creatures we authors invariably are.
I think I gave her a helluva hard time re-writing and re-designing as I danced round options in my head and there was nary a complaint. And, end of the day, I got just the product I'd dreamed up. Beautifully simple, elegant, bags of space, heaps of illustration - it is, I reckon, a gem. Take a peep: www.authorjohnpepper.com. I think you'd find it difficult to come up with a more arresting site (aside from those all perpetual motion with theatrical effects and dancing bears).
Further, A.P's partner and sidekick, Simon Wray, a former BT IT whizz, able to introduce one to the wonders of Bloggerdom. Initially the whole blogging thing terrified me. But I soon got the hang of it under, again, the PATIENT tutelage of Wray. He talked me through the blogging arts in two phone sessions. He checked up, quickly, on a display concern that had arisen, in a third. Both he and Annie, I know, won't turn one away in the future if one's saddled with any serious problems with the site. They seem genuinely proud of their efforts. A pride well deserved.
I’m a member of SoA and I recently decided to get a website developed, and came across DigitalPlot via the SoA website and associated advertising material for services. My website is now up and running and I'd just like to say I'm very happy with it and the service provided by Annie and Simon.
You can see the website at www.barrykirwan.com and it can go on the list of websites they have built. It's Science Fiction, so a bit different from the rest.
So, thanks to SoA for pointing me in their direction.
“Previously we have sourced a web designer from friends and colleagues and in our experience they have resulted in disappointing design and artwork, so my history of of web designers was not too healthy. ”
With Digitalplot, however, not only was I able to leave the design and artwork completely to you, together with the wording from our previous brochures, but you also added an editing area so that we can update any financial news, showing that the site is 'live' and keeping up to date with financial developments.
We are very pleased with the site and we have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and colleagues who wish to have a professional site designed.

I have found Anne Pennington to be a quite extraordinary person. She travelled to Oxford to take my brief (I was in a bit of a hurry) and worked with me fast and brilliantly.
She is experienced, creative and original. I hope to find her many more clients as I mine the rich path of publishing's tapestry, and I should very much like you to include my name on her list.
Many thanks for all your efforts in helping us with the new website and corporate identity. We are very happy with the finished products and have no hesitation in recommending Digitalplot to any prospective client

Thanks once again for putting it all together, we are really pleased with the result and the excellent level of service we have received from you. We will definitely be recommending you to others if they need a website done!
Annie has produced for a technically incompetent author an excellent new website. I enjoyed working with her and seeing my vague ideas take vibrant and attractive form.
Working with Anne Pennington has been a pleasure and, for those of us with minimal IT skills, an education.
She was recommended as a web designer by a neighbouring Communal Garden Committee, for whom she had designed a much admired website.
Anne has a talent for carefully absorbing the client's brief - in our case an easily navigated and informative website for the residents of Courtfield Gardens- whilst also managing to produce an original, visually stunning and above all useful website.
Her reliability, patience and creativity have made the whole process painless and fun. We have no hesitation in recommending Anne for a whole range of web projects.
On behalf of the Courtfield Gardens Committee
I recently asked Annie of Digitalplot to design banners for my website. We now have a selection of flashing banners on the home page. Annie did a great job and this is a really effective way of creating interest and drawing attention to specific matters on our site.
Annie completed the job quickly and efficiently and at a very competitive cost and we are delighted with the result. Well done Annie!
I'm very pleased I chose Digitalplot, as I am with the website Anne Pennington has designed. She provides a highly professional, inventive, bespoke service at a far lower cost than others I've seen. I'm happy to recommend her.
This is absolutely lovely — thank you so much! I love the colours and the whole look of it. I hadn’t clearly visualised the way I wanted it to look, but now that I see this, this is how I wanted it to be. I’ve finally managed to get myself online. Thank you to the fabulous Annie Pennington for getting this done for me, and for her many gentle prods about the fact that the site could not appear unless I provided some words for it.
I am delighted with my website that was designed by Annie at Digitalplot. I have no idea about what goes on behind the scenes of a website and don't really want to know! Annie took control of everything yet listened patiently and gave me great advice on what I wanted my site to look like. My site went through some changes as we considered the best look but evolved into exactly what I wanted and what I had in my mind all along. I found Annie's patience and expertise reassuring and highly professional and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
I had a startlingly clear image of how I wanted my site to look and I was amazed by the ease with which Annie managed to translate my wishes into something even more beautiful than what I’d seen in my imagination. The sea, individually themed pages, blues and purples, novel extracts and reviews – it’s all there. Simon set up a content management system that even I can operate with ease.
Creating a website with the benefit of Digitalplot’s expertise and friendly professionalism is a rewarding experience and I’d recommend them to anyone. My site is now not only smoothly functional, but stunning – I’m thrilled!
When I set up my small company a year ago I knew I needed a website and I wanted it to be clean and clear and not fussy as so many seem to be. Annie got it just right. Not only am I really pleased with it but many of my friends have commented on what a good design it is. When I needed to make a few changes recently Annie did this quickly and efficiently. I’ve since recommended her to one or two other people who are also extremely satisfied. Her service is also affordable for small companies like ours.
“Annie at Digitalplot certainly goes the extra mile; she made lots of helpful suggestions, accommodated all my pernickety requests and has designed a brilliant website, which always attracts lots of compliments. Simon is very helpful on the technical side, too. I chose Annie because she always responds very quickly to emails and phone calls, she stated a price up-front, she listens to me and she’s efficient but also extremely approachable and down-to-earth.
“Anne Pennington and digitalplot come up trumps every time!”
“Annie came to meet me to pick up our brief; she produced various ideas, all good ones may I say. She has shown infinite patience working with a committee that made numerous amendments, alterations and was slow in providing the pictures for the gallery. She was keen to complete the task quickly and kept on chasing us for materials”.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. It has attracted excellent comments from people visiting the website, from residents to Estate Agents and Property Developers. One of the latter saying that it was the best garden website ever! The service is first class and the support immediately available whenever we require some updates”.
Thank you Annie!
The Gledhow Gardens Committee
“Annie picked up our brief and ran with it. I couldn't believe how quickly the project was completed - she was chasing me for copy to get the website finished before I knew it. Fantastic support from Simon on how to update and manage the site made Digitalplot the complete package for us.”

“I am delighted to provide a testimonial for Digitalplot. The service that you have provided to William Hardman Associates has always been of the highest quality.
“Digitalplot responds immediately to all our questions and requirements and is also very sensibly and competitively priced. I can recommend the services of your company without hesitation.”
William Hardman Associates, RIBA
“Annie has the patience of a saint and the creative skills of an angel! She was courteous and friendly even when I must have driven her crazy with my indecisiveness. My website looks excellent 'professional, understated and clear' as one client described it — and I am really really pleased with it — it is a joy to look at. I warmly recommend Annie for excellent service and a superb product. Thanks Annie!”
“I am very pleased with your work and the website. You have done a wonderful job and should be proud of it — I am.”
“If you are anything like me and have avoided setting up your own website because you are afraid to ‘fess up to strangers just how ignorant you are about the process, then Annie at Digitalplot is for you. The entire process has been professional, fun and efficient, and I am now the proud owner of a beautifully-designed website that I can actually work. I chose Digitalplot for two reasons: firstly, I liked the pleasing clarity of her previous designs and secondly, Annie responded to my initial enquiry very promptly. She then remained efficient and good-humoured throughout the process.”
“We have had the pleasure of using the services of Anne Pennington during the last few months for the design of our new website for our consultancy, PRIMA Management Consultants Limited. She has given us great service, shown professionalism and great skill when dealing with our requirements. Anne was very practical in her web design concepts, ideas on domain hosting, how to handle data links and web browsers.”
PRIMA Management Consultants
“We want to thank you for the excellent work you did on our new website. From start to finish you have been pro-active with ideas, content and layout. You were open to ideas and suggestions and acted upon them efficiently and enthusiastically.
“We are absolutely delighted with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and colleagues wishing to get onto the worldwide web.”
“Where to start in recommending Annie? She is talented, efficient and unfailingly polite – in short, a joy to work with. From the very beginning I felt Annie understood what I wanted to achieve, even when my lack of technical knowledge made it difficult to explain. She was never less than patient and supportive, even after dozens of tiny changes. Add to this Annie’s prompt service and keen prices … I’m simply delighted with the result. I warmly recommend Annie and digitalplot to perfectionists who want excellent web design and unbeatable service.”
“ Annie Pennington of Digital Plot has designed the website of my dreams for my book The Musical World of Boublil and Schönberg. It's so visual and eye-catching, very affordable and Annie is a pleasure to work with. See for yourself at: www.musicalworld-boublil-schonberg.com.”
“The Society of Authors produce a journal called The Author and it was there that I found Annie and Digitalplot. It has been, and is continuing to be, the best of discoveries because Annie, together with Adam Dyson, is gradually updating a ‘tired’ website and giving it her own special sparkle. Annie is a most unusual person in that she is extremely talented, quick to understand and interpret my often garbled suggestions – and best of all, she is eternally patient with someone who does not understand much about computer-speak! May I recommend her, and Adam, most warmly to anyone who is searching for excellence and speed.”
“Like Malcolm Rose, I found digitalplot from the Society of Authors’ list, but it was the look of the site: clear, professional, with good clean design - which made me contact Annie. After that, it was a pleasure working with her to solve all my website issues; her friendliness and lack of condescension was so refreshing after many of the disinterested people I had previously spoken to in IT.
“Oh — and I should say — the end result was simply splendid!”
“Anne”s design for my website is superb — it has drawn a steady stream of compliments — and she is both efficient and easy to work with. Having taken the plunge after hesitating for years, I feel very lucky to have found her and highly recommend her services to anyone (including but not only other authors). Thank you Anne!”
“I have been dreading getting a website set up for years — if I had known how pleasant and effortless Annie Pennington would make the whole process, I would not have delayed. I am a niggling perfectionist, but not once did Annie’s patience or politeness falter. She was full of new and creative ideas, and nothing was too much trouble. I have a feeling she takes as much pride in the finished result as I do myself. For quality and value, I unreservedly recommend Digitalplot. Check out how good it is at www.josephconnolly.co.uk.”
“Great service from digitalplot. Creative, quick and competitive — what more can you ask for? Thanks for a super website.”
“Once again my grateful thanks for your swift, deft, and dedicated work which resulted in a website I would be happy to commend to other authors. And will!”
“A great source of help! Enlisting Anne’s services to redesign my web site and install a shopping cart at www.clivecouldwell.com helped me anticipate what buyers would want. I found Annie and Adam really easy to work with. They left no stone unturned.”
“As a Society of Authors member, I used the website recommendations of other members to find myself a new designer. I asked for a few quotes and settled on Annie Pennington as mentioned by Maureen Duffy:
“Annie has now completed her work on my website (www.malcolmrose.co.uk) and it is attracting very favourable comment. I can certainly add my recommendation to Maureen’s. Annie was very pleasant to work with and completed the design with remarkable speed.”
“Anne Pennington offers a complete website service design and management. She is efficient and will accommodate your requests. You may have access to your site for updating and amending. I have used her services for five years and have enjoyed working with her.”
“I couldn't have done it without her... Anne Pennington’s expertise or any other form you like.”
Maureen Duffy (www.maureenduffy.co.uk) recommends Annie Pennington www.digitalplot.co.uk. Call Annie on 07921 142084 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete service including domain name, design and hosting.”
