Most of us start with a manuscript — a Microsoft Word, ODF (OpenOffice Document File), or RTF (Rich Text Format) doc that we’re looking to turn into an ebook. Now, as I said last month, a Word doc isn’t an ebook. But you can format the text and even insert images, hyperlinks and the other paraphernalia that make up an ebook, and then use an app to convert the document into ePub format.
This file type stands for "Electronic Publication," and is the more flexible ebook formats. By that, I mean EPUB ebooks can "reflow" their text to adapt to various mobile devices and tablets, allowing the ebook's text to move on and off different pages based on the size of the device on which a user is reading the ebook. They're particularly helpful for viewing on smaller screens, such as smartphones as well as the Nook from Barnes and Noble.
Also it wants a table of contents even if your book does not need it. And it is biased towards EPUB books not the more popular MOBI format. It is crash prone and extremely complex to try to use with a fairly high learning curve. It wants to duplicate the functions of a word processor as well as try to convert the file. All in all too elaborate of a program and not worth the bother. There are plenty of free alternatives out there on the internet to convert your eBook far more easily than this.
I'm a seasoned professional with solid, practical expertise in writing, editing, content development, author services, print and electronic publications, public relations and media relations. While I'm flexible and enjoy variety in the work I accept, most of my work at present is with authors seeking to self-publish. I really enjoy helping them polish their work and bring their books into the world. I believe that every author has unique strengths and unique needs, so my goal is always to be flexible and find the best way of working with each particular author. I can provide editorial help at each stage of the process: developmental editing, line editing, copyediting, or proofreading. I can also provide formatting for both print and ebooks.

A proper title for this software would be Microsoft Word eBook Creator because that is the only input it will accept and its quite particular about what version of Microsoft Word the file was generated in before it will accept it. For it to live up to its name Of Ultimate...it should accept far more input. Microsoft Word is not the only word processor out there.
A traditional eBook usually looks like a textbook chapter: It’s got an introduction, a list of sections, and a lot of text that follows a linear progression of concepts designed to be read in order. There’s usually some kind of summary conclusion at the end. This structure has worked with print for years. But it’s not a structure that translates well to the web.
