Where do professional authors publish their books?
I may have a slightly different outlook from other writers because I write for scientific magazines and articles. The majority of my writing is done in my own offices or, as notebooks and tablets are so cheap, at home. There' are many possibilities, but the best one - and the one I use - is Scrivener.
From designing, writing and assembling the end product in various file types, ranging from e-books, PDF, childle books or off-the-shelf file types to editing or agent work. Most recently I was told that Tom Wolfe, Danielle Steele and P. J. O'Rourke use typeswriters and George R. R. Martin uses a DOS-based text editor. Obviously, they will finally be translated into a proper digital form, because that's what editors want nowadays (my very first trips into the print media business were direct mail scripts; email is much easier), but I think for most editors it's more a mechanic than a part of writing.
And of course many writers use advanced utilities (traditional text processing programs and online tools). I' m using either Microsoft Office or LibreOffice, whichever is available. Other people use either OpenOffice or Atlantis Wordprocessor. Favor OpenOffice. Further features are available in Microsoft Office, Open Office and Calibre.
Apart from the responses below, I will tell you that I am writing my stories with the good old word, the 2010-issue. What I like best lately is Word Press. I use a simple spelling checking in my webinterface, so it's not as offensive as using Word with all its bell and whistle, even as sparse as using Notepad.
With Word, I find it discouraging to have, for example, 300 pages that need to be completely edited. I can do it with Word Press bit by bit, so it's not overpowering.
