    Anyone ever made an ebook? There's lot of stuff out there, mostly affiliate links to lots of products I'm unsure about.

    I'm hoping someone here has made one, and can offer some suggestions on a good piece of software.

    Thanks.

    Take a look @ SbookBuilder :
    http://www.jansfreeware.com/jftools.htm#sbookbuilder

    It's pretty basic but it's free, compiles ebooks from html and images, has no forced branding (ads) and outputs ebooks as a .exe.

    I've used that and it is pretty good, but PC only. Wouldn't it be better to use Acrobat and create a .pdf file.

    I use Ebookpaper for all my ebooks. It's easy to use and has a plenty of additional features such as password protection.

    But the feature I like best is the branding option. This lets anyone who downloads your ebook to brand it with their own details and then give it away from their own website. Instant viral marketing!

    Best of all, it only costs $47.

    Acrobat is great if you plan to distribute printable brochures but if you are only going to produce one ebook it can be a bit expensive.

    Don't worry about Mac users, there aren't many of them and if they really wanted to read your ebook they can always buy a cheap PC from Tigerdirect! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Looks good but I like to see screen shots of what it does before buying stuff, The web site does not have any. Do you have any free eBook that you have written that I could have a look at? Or do you know any free eBooks written with this software? I am looking for a good eBook creator myself. Wondered about Acrobat but it is expensive.

    Here is a list of Free e-book creators
    http://www.bizinfocenter.com/ebookre...ompilers.shtml

    Personally I like http://www.ebookedit.com/home.php
    it's $67 odd dollars but you can download a working version to have a play around.

    PerfectG,

    Sure, I've uploaded an ebook for you to take a look at. Click here to download
    It gives you an idea of what the software can do...

    When I click the link I just get a message saying file exceeds 256Kb.

    Any chance of e-mailing it to me.

    I've used ebookpaper & yes it's simple & fast.
    Good thing there.

    However, if you're a programmer type you'll prefer ebookcompiler from Sunil I guess !


    PS : Buggy I've sent you a PM now. Please reply asap. ! Thanks.

    Cheers,

    Anybody use or tried KeeBook Creator

    http://www.keeboo.com

    Looks very fancy, but have not had time to play around with it yet. Seems you can publish your books to the web too.

    OK, just played with it. Seems eBooks reated this way use you web browser to display them. Quite like it, but need to play more.
