Hi
Can someone please advice me on which is the best and safest software to create an ebook. I've finished my book and need to now turn it into an ebook.

My plan is to launch it by November 30th and I'm busy creating a new website, ebook software is getting me behind with my plans. Any advice gratefully received.:confused::confused:

        As stated above microsoft word will export the doc as a pdf. if you don't have word then open office is a free alternative.

        Good luck with your ebook

          Hi Guys

          First I'd like to thank you all for your answers.

          I'm looking for something that would help turn my ebook into a product that cannot be copied in any way, I've tried both word and open office and they don't give me what I'm looking for.:confused:

    EBooksWriter is perfect for beginners, yet contains many high powered features. You can create fancy pages in minutes, because you don’t need to learn all available functions, nor all the dialogs to start taking advantage of its power.

    I think the pdf version will work, this is because the pdf file optimization is now very much useful

    Hi Guys

    I understand the need to make it into a pdf, the software that I'm looking for converts word documents to non-editable and non-copyable Pdf

      Adobe Acrobat (not Acrobat Reader) let's you create PDFs and has all the bells and whistles including security. You may want to purchase a copy.

      I'm not sure what your distribution plans are (from your website, Amazon, etc..) but if you will be publishing from somwhere like Amazon you may want to read up on the formats they use for submission.

    If you want to keep your book simple in appearance then copy all the contents in Word. Newer version of Word allows you to convert word document into PDF.
    If you want your e-book look attractive then use Ebookswriter. It is stuffed with many features.
