Want to publish a book (or other publication) but don't really feel like spending hundreds of dollars on typesetting and design? Don't go away.
It won't take long. Two hours. Tops. And NO software costs!
Oh, there's nothing wrong with the industry-standard software, InDesign. It does generate great output and I'm told that you can become skilled at it in no time at all. Less than a year at any rate. And I'm sure that their $120/year license fee is a great deal...compared with the price of a private jet.
But for those of us who haven't the time to learn super-complicated systems and don't happen to be in the market for private jets right now, there is an alternative: free and open source software (FOSS) for quick, careful, and efficient book or publication designs. I've done it lots of times.
Stick around and I'll show you how.
