What's the best app/service for creating an e-book?

I am looking for an easy way to create e-books online. Decent control over visuals (images, fonts) as well as great exporting options.

    Writing made easy

    This is a very simple yet complete collaboration / publishing writing tool. For advanced diagramming we use Adobe InDesign.

    If your content is on WordPress, Beacon is a pretty nifty tool which converts your posts into ebook format (pdf downloads, anyway).

    This seems like a great tool if you do not plan to monetize your e-book and just use it to collect leads.

    We use Webflow for all of our ebooks: which combined with the Webflow CMS, gives us a powerful way to publish not just one, but a collection of different ebooks. We'll soon release a cloneable version you can start using for your next ebook, but here's a sneak preview of what it looks like in the designer:

    Assuming you’re good on the writing and wanting to dive into the technical details, I think the best and easiest way to create an eBook is with Canva. Canva is a graphic design tool that offers free and premium templates you can use to create your eBook, from cover to inside page design.

    Reedsy is the "Medium of ebook publishing." The PDF output in particular is excellent, but it also has the best ePub export I've found. This video describes how to convert it to Mobi.

    If you're into pure markdown support this is the best bet for you. It's a too part product - one is a ruby gem that creates a beautiful e-book (pdf, mobi, epub) from your markdown, and another one is an optional service to distribute it. I used it for my book and I'm very happy with the results!

    You can create as Presentation when you create the Ebook; and each slide will be in essence a page. If you want it to be online ebook; then you can add all interactivity you want. Or static so it can be also downloaded as PDF. Visme was used to create our own eBook in this case for infographics. You can check it out here:

    I've not tested the service personally, but I've met and followed the founder online and he's a good one.
