Bubok and its new editor free ebooks online
The move ebooks. Yesterday we talked about Byeink, generator online ebooks ebooks created by Cream and the same day Bubok launches several new features, including an online publisher similar free which allows any author to design and build your own ebook without relying on designers.
Bubok has been supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Spain, although the tool is simple, we must say that the design of the page is not quite visually pleasing. It lacks editing features, enabling them to create the book chapter by chapter, and publish it directly to the platform Bubok or download.
The control panel displays a list where you can see all the books that we create, which can be public or private. From there we can create a new or edit existing ebook.
Once in the edit page really see that the text formatting options are fairly complete but, again, the design could have been more generous, broader, clearer. The user should not have to guess what each icon, and it misses the letters are larger.
To the right is a menu with a good idea, a version history saved. This editor also has a feature to add collaborators with different permissions: view and edit, only view or add comments.
In the menu where the option to publish the book may be downloaded in PDF or ePub, email or print it directly. There are many options for publishing formats.
The only options for publishing as editor appears Bubok, with a choice ePub, PDF or both. In this place also is a link to the terms and conditions of the contract, that link does not work, by the way. They just go out and surely correct, but I think it is a detail that should have been more careful to reassure the authors. In tests I did I had trouble posting, is probably due to a temporary problem that was announced to try posting on the website, but was missing a sign indicating the same from publishing tool, especially in the day which was announced. Not much else is really necessary or not.
We know the Bubok service, publishing ebooks and physical books for independent authors selling a print on demand system. They just announced also now able to print in hardcover. All this is great news for the development of new models of editorial content distribution over the Internet, in many cases produced by authors who had previously depended on large publishers to publish, and the text had never come to so many readers.
In the 4 years since Bubok, more than 77,500 registered users and 68,000 titles published, of which 26,000 are ebooks. It also has presence in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Sweden, Portugal and the UK. The catalog of ebooks is integrated on platforms like Amazon, Casadellibro.com and Google Books .
