If you're getting started or well underway with your ebook creation activities, these tools will help.
An ebook takes a lot of work and commitment to complete - from idea, to draft and design.
There are many stages to go through when producing an ebook, so to help you we've compiled a number of our preferred tools.
The Hemingway Editor is a must-have resource for writers of all abilities. The free version allows you to paste in - or type from scratch - your content and review any grammatical errors. It even gives you a 'readability' level - perfect to ensure your content is easy and full of clarity.
When it comes to using the tool for ebook content creation you are better doing it chunk by chunk, before formatting for design - as you will lose all of your design efforts.
For those that ♥ the tool there is a Desktop version (costs $19.99).
