Print & Electronic Book Publishing Software


Author & Publisher Manuscript Maker is a database-centered software solution that enables publishers and author/self-publishers to create and manage electronic and print book projects. The application utilizes Microsoft Jet (MS Access) database technology to store the entire text of book projects and create HTML, ePUB and Print PDF files that may be uploaded to most eBook distributors and retailers (including Amazon and Barnes and Noble) as well as print-on-demand providers such as LuLu and Amazon's CreateSpace.

The Manuscript Maker application may be installed on a single PC workstation or in a network environment with multiple users linked to a common "back-end" data file. Each data file (maximum 2 GB) is capable of storing 500 to 1,000 book projects or up to 70 million words. It is unlikely that an individual author's complete body of work could fill even a single data file. A publisher with many titles could create separate data files to store projects together by genre or author. Book projects may contain up to 99 chapters with no particular limit on the number of words in each chapter.
