What I’ve loved about Pressbooks is the ability that it gives me to edit constantly, and anytime something comes up that I want to change in a book that’s already out, it’s just incredibly easy to make a change to the file and re-upload it.

I can't thank Pressbooks enough for the amazing service provided to indie authors! I followed the easy instructions and created a personalized, standout novel in just a few clicks! Now, I have full control over every aspect of creating a book, and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks, Pressbooks.

Daraja Press has published a wide range of books using Pressbooks. It’s highly recommended for independent publishers who want to produce quality publications — ready-to-print, ebooks and PDFs — with ease and speed. The system enables online collaboration with authors and editors. And the quality of support is outstanding.
