useful, free, script-writing software I’ve been using: http://celtx.com/index.html


a book publisher, online, which I’ve recently used myself, set up a free member account, download their software, called BookSmart, which includes templates & options for the book, put together and design the thing, submit to blurb to be uploaded on the account, and have as many or as few published as wanted, a person can even use her/his blurb account as an online shop to sell the book for her/him to potential customers, blurb will ship it right to the buyers, a person can set her/his own price, & get a cut of the profits for herself/himself for the work s/he put it into it as well

the Blurbarati, the BlurbNation, find it all here: http://www.blurb.com/
