Free eBook Making Tool Featured on Kickstarter

Hol Art Books has raised more than $22,000 on Kickstarter for their project, The People’s E-Book. These developers will use the funds to build a tool that allows writers to create their own eBooks. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “The People’s E-book is a super-simple online tool with an intuitive visual interface to allow anyone to make e-books quickly and for free. This is barebones e-book publishing. What the photocopier was to zines, we hope The People’s E-book will be to digital books.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
