For those who would like great control of their online books, this is the best plugin in development, with the potential to convert an online html book to epub or pdf in the coming days. Self-hosting your books is what it’s all about; cut-out the middleman – especially if they don’t offer a book backup solution (Pressbooks does not).
BookPress offers readers a real, traditional, book reading experience – as if the book was open on their lap. Flip-books are fancy, but a simple slide-effect like BookPress offers is less distracting.
It is apparent great care was taken to emulate printed books AND to assist writers in their efforts to construct well-structured ones (e.g., the cover, TOC, Dedication, Copyright pages, are auto-generated).
Writer tools such as Goal Setting and Word Counts are there, and for a small upgrade, BookPress offers additional features such as Footnotes, Endnotes, Indexes. If you would like to display your book covers in a side-widget prominently, a simple Shortcode is all that is needed.
This plugin is well designed, intuitive, and their support team very responsive. Now may be the perfect time to get in on their early pricing.
