Hi :thumbsup:

It was suggested that I put my request here. Because I am unable to get around at the moment, I have been looking for a way to earn some cash from home.

I have written a book on Addiction which I would love to market as an Ebook but can't find a free Ebook-maker which takes graphics and tables ... the best commercial program I've "trial-ed" is Treepad Business Edition V 7.1.7 (which I can't afford :flowers: ), so if anyone knows of a similar freeware program, drop me a line! :trumpet:

Thanks
Jadag (Montreal, Canada)

There are so many ebook formats out there. Which type of format do you want? PDF?

Actually, I haven't been able to find any that meet the requirements I mentioned; :thumbsup:

1. It must be freeware ... and clean (no ad's, no spyware etc.)
2. It must be able to accept graphics (mostly jpg's)
3. It must have the ability to change fonts (and font-sizes and font-colors)

Any format that does the above would be good but *.exe seems to be the prefered format around.

What I liked about the Treepad Business Edition (V7.1.7.) was the tree structure panel on the left (similar to Acrobat).

This would allow me to list all the modules and their sub-chapters in tree format and the chapter content (text, graphics and tables) in the main panel.

Also there is a free program that converts Treepad files into Ebook formats (*.exe). What I didn't like was the price (due to my disability, I am on a very limited income :flowers: ).

Almost all the freeware Ebookmakers I have seen can't accept graphics or have very limited text formatting abilities.

However if you come across anything, I would be very grateful if you would send me the link. :trumpet:

Did some searching, and found these.
Not sure if it's what your looking for, or not.
Both Freeware.
