In case anyone is wondering, the paperback versions of my books and my mom’s books were created with OpenOffice. Here is the website.
OpenOffice has a lot more to offer than just the few things I do with it. I know enough to use the Writer part of the suite. I want to mention this software to the world because it is quite relevant to anyone who wants to write a book and needs free software.
Once I have my documents the way I want, I export them to PDF files for upload to createspace. I hope this information helps other people in their own quest to become a published author.
Since I have been through the process of self publishing books for my mother and myself, I may be able to help others publish theirs. I could probably tutor someone on the basics of OpenOffice Writer.
