Print & Electronic Publishing Software from Sky Scientific

Print and Electronic Publishing SoftwareAuthor and Publisher Manuscript MakerMMaker
Author & Publisher Manuscript Maker is a database-centered software solution helping publishers and author/self-publishers 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 and print-on-demand retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble and others.

Manuscript Maker Project Info Tab
Author & Publisher Manuscript Maker 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.
 .
The Manuscript Maker application is functionally arranged in nine separate logical tabs that will guide you through your project development—from startup to completion—with Manuscript Maker doing the hard work. The Project Info Tab is the starting point for every new electronic or print book project. After entering title, author and publisher information, use the 'Import Project Source File' to browse to your project Word Document or text file to import the text of your book into the Manuscript Maker database.

For Kindle and ePUB Projects, a single button click on the Make Files Tab will generate the output file, ready to preview and then upload to the eBook distributor of your own choosing. 
  
From the same Make Files Tab, the Manuscript Maker software can generate a print preview of your print book project in Microsoft Word with fully justified text, correct pagination and (optional) page headers with book title and author displayed at the top of alternate pages. It is from this preview that your final print-on-demand PDF is generated using a third-party PDF writer such as Adobe® Acrobat® (free trial available from Adobe®) or one of several free products such as the Bullzip PDF Printer and CutePDF™ Writer.
