Desktop author is a great program to easily create eBooks.however, if you have any problems with th eprogrma expect to get little assistance unless you bombard them with pleas for help, when they will pull out all stops to do so. sometimes the program may 'bomb' and despite fixing it via tweaking in the Registry (NOT a practice most users should do).. it IS a fantastic program. It also offers a great Sales Gateway and built in esales security. they can host your eBooks and look after all your sales for you automatically for around 1.5% of the sale s price of your eBook. Worth a try before you say goodbye!
