It used to be that if you had a used paperback or two, you were all set for a trip to the beach or maybe a quiet evening in front of the fireplace. But that's so old school; now everybody's got an ebook reader. With that reader, you need something to read. You can buy ebooks, or you can download them for free at places like Project Gutenberg. Or maybe you can "roll your own", whether it's for your own use, or because you've written the next great American novel and want to share it. Either way, it might be handy to be able to create your own ebook.

Sigil is a WYSIWYG editor that lets you create and format EPUB documents for ebooks. Starting with a plain text file, or some other version of your publication, Sigil lets you format your document so that it looks just right for your readers. Add images, insert page and chapter breaks, create a table of contents, format text, and more. Now you can be the author and publisher all at the same time.

Sigil runs under Linux, Mac (Intel only), and Windows.
