I published my first book of poetry, Intermodulations, using Scrivener.
Here’s my methodology. I had the poems in various rtf and doc files. I brought them into Scrivener, making each poem a document. I did some basic formatting and then compiled to an OpenOffice odt file. Then I imported the OpenOffice file into the free layout program Scribus, where I did the final formatting, and from that created the PDF for printing.
For the ebook version, I used Scrivener to compile to EPUB, then I opened the EPUB in the free ebook creation program Sigil to do the tweaking of the layout – poetry is tricky to format correctly for an ebook. Once the EPUB was done, I loaded it into Calibre and converted it to MOBI.
My wife and I recently started our own publishing company, Maat Publishing, so I published through that.
Quite and adventure!
