BookWright for non-Vellum users?
« on: November 18, 2016, 04:22:44 AM »
Has anyone used Blurb's BookWright software to format an ebook in Windows? Curious to know if it's a possible substitute for us non-Vellum users.

I haven't used it. I did stumble across this review, but it's an old one: https://finishthatnovel.org/2015/02/10/blurb-and-bookwright-double-review/ One would hope that by now they'd sorted some of the issue out.

There is also this old but much more favorable review: http://www.safesmartliving.com/blurb-photo-book-review/

Both reviews make the process sound complicated and better suited for books with graphic elements than for plain text.
