What is the best software to collaborate on a book (and publish it on the web)?

I am looking for a way to collaborate on a book with dozens of editors, most of which are not technical. I am looking for a solution where you have a nice WYSIWYG editor and can publish the content straight to the web. I looked into Gitbook (too technical) and Notion (looks promising but is not made for book publishing (chapters, etc.)) so far, but have not been too convinced. It would be nice to have a publishing process built-in such as a main editor who accepts/denies changes. Any ideas?

    Reedsy seems to be similar to what you need. They're designed for publishing, and have the ability to set you up with editing, design, publicity, or really anything you might need for working on your book, as well as a book editor which seems to be very similar to Medium's editor. Not sure about access control wrt main editor, but it's worth looking into.
  2. Have you tried using Google Docs? It's great for visually seeing suggestions and edits and most people find it easy to use. Here's an article about a grade 4 & 5 class who created a book together https://bookcreator.com/2013/10/...
  3. I haven't used this, but it looks like it might be more of what you're looking for. Much better version control, and reasonably priced.
