eBook writing and publishing

By | September 10, 2010
Today I’m trying something and I’m not sure it’s a good idea (yet).

I have decided to write my eBook with Google Sites rather than with OpenOffice. Why ? So I can switch computer and share my draft with friends. The idea is to work in two phases : work on the content until I’m happy and than have a formatting only issue.

Is it a good idea ? Not sure yet…

The Pros :

  • I can share it
  • I can publish it in one click and people online can read it
  • People who have access can comment

The cons :

  •  I’ll have to copy it all back from Google Sites to OpenOffice… and/or something else to create a PDF or an ePub or a file for Amazon DTP… And it’s a LOT of work…
