“Slow Growth Presents Challenges and Opportunities”
[I’ve added this later – perhaps making my post a little more ‘interesting’ and not so blankish looking.]
Tonight, I’ve been over to Smorgasbord – Variety is the Spice of Life blog catching up on the great ebook series of articles Tess has been reblogging. I got to worrying about the formatting foibles ahead of me in a few months.
As I’ve mentioned before, I use a free writing software application called yWriter5 from Spacejock Software (I have no affiliation with the author/software fellow Simon Haynes). I’ve just come from visiting his website to check what he has to say about ebook conversion and I’m pleased – no, THRILLED – to discover that the very latest software update includes a new ‘export for e-book feature’.
yWriter5 already has a ‘convert to HTML’ but this new export feature is optimized for conversion to e-book using Calibre. Simon says the resulting e-book should format without any nasty surprises. He should know – he’d be using it for his own books.
Works in progress in Word of Open Office can be imported and converted with a minimum of fuss.
The man is a genius!
