Authoring eBooks

on June 6, 2012

Now that you know what resources are out there, maybe you want to create your own eBooks. It’s cool to be an author, right? Publish your own materials — whether it be offered for free or for a fee. Here are some softwares that can get you started on your way. Also, here’s a thought: Students publishing their own eBooks! We will talk more about that later.

 In addition to these software offerings there are other ways to publish:

Kindle Publishing Programs – Downloads for this program is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux — It’s free to publish. Books need to be in digital format such as PDF.

PubIt! by Barnes and Noble (for Nook) – Easy to follow instructions on creating a book to be downloaded to the Nook.

     There is apparently an app for the Nook Color that allows for quick publication (built with kids in mind) called Draw Write Read. Check it out — it’s $1.99

iBooks Author – This app is to be downloaded to your iMac or MacBook in order to create eBooks for the iBooks store.

Kobo Writing Life – Allows you to write and upload your book to the Kobo store.
