I have a free version (PagePlus Starter) that I haven't used, and Scrivener is an incredibly advanced word processing, project management and formatting tool all in one. We will also send you our eBook "Book Construction Blueprint" free of charge. I' m compiling to an ePub file, which I open in the (free) Kindle Previewer of Amazon.
