Desktop tools for self publishing

Conclusion

Numerous other scripts exist for creating ebooks. Debian especially offers a thorough set of scripts for creating ebooks from AbiWord, Apple Pages, DocBook XML, Microsoft Works, WordPerfect, and others [6]. Before publishing, you may also want to verify your output, either using an online verifier or a free tool such as EpubCheck [7] from your distribution's package repositories.

For general purposes, LibreOffice 6.0 or Calibre should produce acceptable output. However, keep Sigil for hands-on troubleshooting. Between these three tools, you should have all you need for do-it-yourself ebook publishing.
