Beautiful Outputs.

PressBooks does the work to make sure your books look beautiful. We spend our time building beautiful designs so you don’t have to. Our designs suit all kinds of books: we’ve designed for novels, memoirs, nonfiction, academic texts, white papers, literary journals, text books and more. We are constantly adding new designs, and can build custom templates to your specifications. So, if we are missing something you need, let us know.

How We Test EPUBs at PressBooks

Easy web interface.

PressBooks has a simple online writing tool that is easy to use — for publishers, production managers, editors and authors. The interface gives you complete control over workflow and updates. You can import from other formats such as a Word document or your blog. Or you and any contributors can work directly in PressBooks. You just set-up the information about your book, add or import your content, and export. Need to update the content in your book? No problem. Typo? Fix it and re-export. Forgot to add the Dedication? Add it and export again.

Full-service conversion.

PressBooks is easy to use, but you might want someone else to do the heavy lifting. We can help with our full service conversion service: send us your manuscript and we’ll return to you your PDF, EPUB and MOBI files. Contact us and let us know what you need.

What people say about PressBooks

PressBooks has been great for our digital singles publishing program. Its easy input and multiple outputs have given us a quicker way to produce content for our readers.

A tool like PressBooks, that efficiently and consistently outputs the files you need when you need them takes a major part of waste off the table and allows it to be refocused on the things that really matter.

I’m very impressed with PressBooks’ Full-Service Conversion. The turnaround was fast, the results polished, and the service exceptional. They tweaked the design templates so we got exactly what we needed.

But I've really come to love PressBooks. It's just wonderful.

We've used pretty well every tool available for creating ebooks and PressBooks is the fastest and easiest. Most of all, the ebooks we export are beautiful and work perfectly on every device we've tested.
