Publishing a book? But Word, Open Office and alike turn your dream into a nightmare?


Welcome to the club.

I felt the same. Whenever I was writing longer work in one of the standard word processors, at some point this crazy "What you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) style of writing ruined my day and work. To the point, I had to start with a fresh document and carefully copy and paste my text back and hoping the whole way that the mess will not happen again.

Sometimes it worked, and other times I could just bang my head on the table and cry.

Sounds familiar?

No wonder, we are using the wrong tool. These word processors originated in making writing single paged letters more visual. Yeah, not for writing books or technical documentation.

WYSIWYG kills your productivity


Don't believe me? How often did you wrestle with Word after some simple format change? How often did it mess your work up when you just copied an image into the document?

However, it is doing even more harm. Writing your story or explaining some difficult nonfiction topic, is already hard enough, but when your monkey brain is constantly jumping around and being niggling on your formatting or getting distracted by other visuals, it is almost impossible to finish your book on time.

Hey, after all, we are visual animals - our visual sense dominates all of our senses.

What's good for writing a letter is not necessarily useful for writing books.

Error messages from Smashwords, Kindle or Apple are driving you nuts?


After a hard and long time, you finally have your manuscript formatted and are ready to publish it. Full of anticipation to see your book in the stores. You click the publish button and wait.

Hours later, you get an email from Smashwords or Kindle and BAMM - your eBook failed validation. Woah, what does this cryptic error message mean? Help, anybody.

The fixing cycle turns publishing in hours to publishing in days and weeks. And when you finally pass validation and double check your book on your Kindle, your layout is messed up.

Want to bang your head now on your desk or punch your screen?

I sure would.

Skip all of that and use Moopato as your secret tool to increase your book output and to stay sane.

Take my book Minimalism Sucks as an example.

Btw the book is free, so grab your copy and see a Moopato made book in action.

See, I've developed Moopato to scratch my own itch. And when I realized others having the same problems I was having before, I knew I had to help them and thus published my tool. It can help you and it is a minimal investment you make compared to the amount of time you waste or money you spendon some fiverr gigs.
