Free ebook conversion for your blog

Quite simply, Ebook Glue is an easy way to convert your written content, like your blog for example, into a downloadable and nicely designed ebook that you can share with your friends and the rest of the world. And while the app is effectively a commercial ebook converter with pricing plans that cater for anything from 1500 conversions to nearly 40,000, there is also a free plan for smaller bloggers that lets you convert up to 25 items each month. EBook Glue gives bloggers the chance to create their own ebook without having to do any of the typesetting and design work themselves.   ...  More

Find out what your audience wants you to write about - simply and easily

A few years ago I tailored my skills as a writer by writing a blog for a video and DVD organization but I would spend half my time researching interesting information on what I thought my reading audience wanted to hear. These days, those same research skills are still used by writers and businesses worldwide though things are a wee bit better organized and analyzed in the techno savvy 21st Century. Inbound writer is an Internet marketing app for writers to optimize their online content and gives them a much clearer vision of what their viewing audience is talking about and what they are ...  More

Goodbye autocorrect - hello intuitive faster writing

If you write on your iPhone or iPad pretty well every day as I do you will learn to both love and loathe its autocorrect abilities. Regular users, I'm sure, will understand exactly what I mean. But whereas the autocorrect facility corrects words after they have been written, PredictiveTyper is a far more user friendly tool as it learns from your writing style and predicts the way you write in real time. The app can be used to create as well as edit  documents as well as enabling you to send text and email from your iDevice faster and more accurately than ever before.   ...  More

Create your own ebook simply and easily

If you are a writer in the 21st Century it is a damn sight easier and cheaper to get your work published and 'out there' to your potential adoring public than ever before. The romantic idea of the tortured author taking his manuscript from publisher to publisher, possibly striking a deal and then waiting for it to be printed and published is not the only way to get your story across. The rise of the kindle has created an online marketplace where readers are avid for more online ebooks and I believe Amazon sold more ebooks than the paper equivalent last year. PapyrusEditor is a simple but ...  More
