Sigil is a free, open-source application that will allow you to import and edit ebooks in .TXT, .HTML and .EPUB format, and only convert them to .EPUB format for export. Sigil has a number of nice functions that make editing much easier, like exploit audio, video, images within your eBook and tweak words by superscript, subscript, strikethrough, tables, lists, hyperlinks etc. Although there are ebook editors out there with more functions, not all of them are this pleasant to use. If you are happy with a basic range of features for your epub editor, Sigil is the one for you. But we have to admit that Sigil's only disadvantage is that it can't support many formats.
Over 27 years experience providing complete contract publishing services, including editing, design, typesetting, printing and binding. Now offering ebook formatting (ePub, Nook, Kindle, etc.). I also offer design and formatting for self-publishers who intend to submit their books to online book printers such as Createspace, KDP, Lightning Source/Ingram Spark, Lulu, or Blurb. I can upload your book to your printer for you if you prefer. I can advise you if you would like to do the layout, setup, and uploading yourself.
Smashwords actually prefers Word docs — and will allow you to download your converted file in ePub format after they’ve run it through their famous “Meat Grinder” conversion tool (it’s actually a customized version of the software at the heart of Calibre). Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing does a pretty good job of converting simple Word files. Kobo’s Writing Life and Barnes and Nobles’ Nook Press have online ebook editing tools.
