Learn how to design, typeset, and print a book online.
Welcome to Bubblin Superbooks.
On this page, we will walk you through the two options by which you can prepare and publish a book on Bubblin. The path to turning your manuscript (a word, a PDF, or a markdown file) into an actual book that's ready for consumption over the wire is fraught with perils. However, with due attention to the processes and with respect for the established traditions of book-making (not writing!), and with practice over time, you—my friend, shall succeed in the art of creative distribution.
The two options are:
1. The Web Interface.
Yes, it is fairly low-level and totally NOT like writing with MS Word or publishing a blog online. Here's a quick tutorial to help you get started. Feel free to review our Official Handbook, which was created using the web editor alone.
2. Bookiza Abelone
Bookiza is a CLI tool for "book-making," where CLI stands for Command Line Interface. It is a book reification framework that can be used to publish any kind of long-form on the web. Please visit the official site of https://bookiza.io for more information.
Prior knowledge of programming is a plus and will help you understand the scope and kind of books that are possible on the web with Bubblin. It is a given that if your book isn't laid out beautifully (typeset) and formatted properly (conventions), and easy to read, people will choose to buy the dead tree instead.
Do you really want that to happen?
