I've wanted to learn to format my own ebooks for a couple of reasons:
1. I can put a book on Amazon without waiting for a formatter to work me into their calendar.
2. I can revise a book or cover whenever I want to re-upload the book for sale.
I've gone to classes, but didn't have the time to invest in learning the process--until now. Introducing...
This product is for Mac users, and it's so easy that it literally took me 20 minutes to format my book and have files to upload for Amazon and Smashwords (Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo and others.)
It has a simple tutorial, and the program is super intuitive.
It costs less than $200 for unlimited use. That is about 4-5 times paying a formatter to do it. Vellum also has other pricing plans for fewer uses.
For me, this has increased my freedom of being indie.
I have more control over my book production than ever before!
