This is a software from Amazon. It’s a fantastic tool for those who are into Kindle ebook self-publishing on Amazon KDP – the Kindle Direct Publishing.
With this tool, you can easily format your ebook manuscript, and export to a KPF file to upload to KDP. This is also a free software available for Windows and Mac.
If you would like to know how to get started with Kindle create, I made a walk-through video that you can watch it right here:
Speaking of Kindle create, another offering from Amazon’s KDP is Kindle add-in for MS Word.
For those who use Microsoft Word, this is a simple add-in that sits right inside your Word document which can be used to format your eBook while writing it.
This even has an inbuilt previewer that comes along with it. I have a separate video on how to install and use Kindle add-in that you can watch and learn right here:
Calibre is a powerful and easy to use e-book manager which is fully free to use. It’ll allow you to do nearly everything around maintaining your ebooks and it takes things a step beyond normal e-book software. It’s basically an ebook storage and management tool but it also allows to edit ebook content and metadata, change eBook’s cover, create ePub files or, convert to many different formats, to publish on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, etc. If you want to learn how to change ebook’s cover, I made a video on that one – which is available on this notification or watch it later by clicking on the link given in the description.
This is an online tool but a great one to help authors. Especially for writing books with distraction free environment and bringing out all your creative juices without letting the left brain react to all the errors and formatting mistakes you make while writing. This often interrupts your creative flow, as you might have encountered while writing. That’s when this Ilys tool helps to first get the writing done, and save all the editing and formatting work for later when there is no creativity happening in our brains. This tool comes in very handy if you are into participating in NaNoWriMo or any other writing competitions because the main aim of this tool is to let you write first without the luxury to hit on backspace or delete keys or even see what you’ve written so far, and that means we cannot take breaks until we have written a lot in a single streak.
Let’s take a break and recap for a minute. We’ve seen 9 tools so far and here’s a list of what’s free, and what’s paid so you can choose which ones to give a try based on your budget. And just keep watching because we have more tools to come.
This is a Songwriting, Lyric Writing, Poetry and Creative Writing Software. Whether you’re writing a song, a poem, a novel, a script, a blog, or whatever your written or verbal communication happens to be, MasterWriter will unlock all that the English language has to offer. The unique tools and reference dictionaries contained in MasterWriter will help you to express yourself in a unique and more meaningful way. This software comes with more than a hundred thousand rhyming words and 36,000 rhymed phrases.

In case you are not in to song writing but say fiction writing, then you may not want to use the same words over and over while writing dialogues. Instead of saying “she was angry…” you could find the word families for the word ‘Angry’ and instead say ‘fuming’, or ‘seething’… you get the idea. So, why struggle to find the right word when you can have all the possibilities in an instant? Free your mind to create and let MasterWriter do the rest.
