Some brief Notes from Diane Kamon Therrien's Google Summit Session on Authoring Indie Books (Bangkok 2012).
Create Space for creating book out of content (MS Word files)
Drawing App: Autodesk Sketchbook Pro (done on tablet)
Calibre can be used for editing ePub versions of ebooks.
Smashwords for free eBook publishing (for Google, Amazon...)
Indies are changing the future of the book industry; because we can share our talent, experience and knowledge and with the help of Google, it is free. Students, teachers and parents alike can become authors. My workshop will give you all tips and tricks about how to get there. You can!
