Convert Any Blog, Web Page or Document Into an eBook with EbookGlue Conversion API | eBook Publishing World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:


Ebook Glue is a free web app which allows you to easily convert any web page URL, RSS feed, blog, or document file (.doc, .docx, .html, or .odt) into a standard formatted .epub or .mobi ebook compatible with standard Kindle, Nook, iPad, and Android reading devices.


You just provide the URL of your content or you upload a supported document file and Ebook Glue does the rest without ay intervention.


For those needing to convert large number of files and web pages to ebooks an API is provided that allows for precise customization of the conversion process.


My comment: Excellent free solution for low-volume needs. It may require you to test and verify format of your images and other elements in your layout.


Free to use for up to 25 daily conversions.

eBook Workflow: from Composition to Final eBook Format | Savvy Self-Publishing | eBook Publishing World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Great tips and advice from Curtis Hox,  English professor by day and a science fiction writer by night, on how to prepare your first .mobi file as he has learned them while producing and formatting his own sci-fi fantasy novel, Bleedover.


Many good suggestions on tools and services to use, as well as on the precise workflow step to get everything to work flawlessly.

Useful. 8/10

Curate Any Blog or RSS Feed Into a Downloadable eBook with Bloxp

Curate Any Blog or RSS Feed Into a Downloadable eBook with Bloxp | eBook Publishing World | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:


Bloxp is a free web app which can autmatically convert any blog feed, from start to end, into a downloadable eBook. But there's more.


Before you actually download the final eBook in your preferred file format, you can actually select which stories from the selected blog feed you want to be included in the final publication and in which order you want them to be.


You could therefore "curate" your own selection of best posts on a specific topic you have covered in the past and rapidly create a downloadable  ebook to share with your readers or to use as a lead generation offer.


Bloxp can capture up to 250 posts and clean them up properly for use inside most ebook readers, Kindle included.


Bloxp offers also the option to convert all found links into footnotes and to create a full Table of Contents.


You can download your blog feed converted into an eBook as an ePub or Mobi file, ready to be distributed anywhere you like. (You can also easily create a PDF by using the "Preview" function and then saving to PDF from your own browser).


N.B.: Unlike other similar services, where only the most recent posts are included, Bloxp will crawl the given blog feed searching for every post written since it was created.


Free to use.

P.S.: Not all sites may work with this, but Sergio, the great guy behind Bloxp, will be happy to be notified of such instances and to try to correct them.


Blogs that works perfectly with Bloxp are those that contain a "next" and "previous" post structure, but other sites and blogs, may work fine as well.

(Thanks to Fulvio Colasanto for discovering this interesting tool)
