Over the last three years we have created an online editor which gives total freedom to design, write and self-publish booklets online. With Bookimbo you can layout your ideal publication from 8 - 80 pages, type or paste text, upload your own images and backgrounds and design your pages exactly as you want. Our self-publishing software uses Microsoft Silverlight giving you advanced text control and image manipulation. I had the idea for Bookimbo whist running a small publishing company called Roastbooks.
I was unable to layout a booklet for my small publishing business, share it online or print in varying quantities without spending way too much time and money. I was so frustrated that I couldn’t create, share and print all from the same place, but that I had to use software to design and export a PDF and then upload it somewhere else to share, and hunt around for a printer that could cope with either short or long booklet printing runs depending on my requirements, all such a palaver!
Furthermore, many of my authors had fantastic ideas of short fiction books and flash fiction collections but they had no way of publishing through conventional routes and I realised an online booklet creator would be such a great tool for them.
Bookimbo is a solution which allows you to self-publish without expensive software, to share freely online in flipbook format and to print brochures and booklets at competitive prices, all in the same place.
We are excited to have created the flash fiction publication, Beautiful Words. This volume was created on Bookimbo and demonstrates how writers can achieve the quality non template-dictated results that they want, on Bookimbo.
So now its time to release version 1.0 of our self-publishing editor and hope that you will enjoy using the product. Please do share your thoughts and feedback on the forum. We want to improve our product to make it the best it can be.
We look forward to seeing your creations!
