Free Book Publishing Software

Several options and choices are available for authors and self-publishers when it comes to choosing the right free book publishing software. In today’s competitive digital world, authors are rethinking their approach to publishing and new opportunities seem to be open up to self-publishers every day. Consequently, many authors have taken ownership of publishing their book.

The Word Processor

One of the most popular tools for writers is the humble Word Processor. Most people use MS Word, and we also have the free open source Open Office variants that allow users to modify and create Word files. Other choices include Apple’s Pages, Storyist and Scrivener which are being used globally. The options to output book pages may be severely limited in Word processor software, and there is no support for advanced formatting, multiple output generation or many other advanced functions needed for certain kinds of books. There are many tools available for writers wanting to turn their talent into tangible books. Most of these tools have intuitive features that support and enhance the creativity thus fulfilling authoring expectations. The team at Izzard Ink appreciates & guides Indie publishers and writers in streamlining and enhancing their self-publishing activities. Here we have listed some of the versatile free book publishing software and apps available.
