Tools For E-Book Creation

November 20, 2010

I’ve talked about the self-publishing of e-books recently and so I thought it was time to share a couple of tools that may be helpful in creating them.

Since I publish all my books as PDF files, it would be great to have a tool that could simply convert a PDF file directly into e-book format. PDF to EPUB 1.5 does exactly that and you’ll love the price (free). For files that are mostly text, you’ll probably have really good success. The trouble may be in converting PDF files that are heavy on graphics. I’m certainly going to give it a try and see how it works for me.

For those who want to seriously get into e-book creation, you’ll want to check out DeskTop Author. It is a full-featured tool designed specifically for the creation of e-books. It even includes the ability to have digital rights management on your titles to prevent piracy.

I’m going to keep looking for good solutions for e-books and I welcome any suggestions you have. Just post a comment and tell me about your favorite tools.
