Indies Unlimited Explains How to Use Pressbooks

This week, Indies Unlimited featured Pressbooks as a book formattting resource for indie authors. The post provides a four-step illustrated guide on how to format your book in Pressbooks. It also explains how Pressbooks cuts out the pain of preparing your book for CreateSpace and other print book markets, builds your table of contents for you and lets you publish your book or parts of it as sample chapters on the Web.

And speaking of writers resources, Indies Unlimited provides a lot of them, from ebooks to tutorials, writing challenges, deals, indie book release announcements and more. You can check them out at
