Version 1.2 released!
French support and a minimal jpeg-in-your-rtf handling (limited to 1 jpeg image in the unregistered version): now you can create e-books that contain images (if they're put in the rtf file as jpegs)
Version 1.1 released!
Now - using the same exact time you need to create your e-book in e-paperback (exe or epb) format you can also get it in epub (open e-book format)!
Version 1.1 has also an updated e-paperback reader engine with a better scaling handling when using wide screen monitors.
Instant EBuilder is a shareware program to create e-books in e-paperback format in just few minutes.And it's really easy. Easy as to follow this three simple steps:
1) Fill your e-book information
2) Add your artwork and your RTF files (with page breaks if you want separated chapters) for text and author biography...
3) Select which output formats you want for your e-book (EXE and/or EPB)
And then simply click on Build and here you are!
Do you want to know more about the e-paperback format, before trying Instant EBuilder? No problem at all - every e-book freely downloadable from this site is also released in this format. Have a look around - and you can find more than one hundred titles - some of them even in english language.
Note: you can experience epb format even thru java applet from almost every e-book page.
Instant EBuilder has not a time limit, but in the unregistered version some features are reduced, compared to the registered one.
Differences are that unregistered version does not allow section bigger than 16 kb and you can't have more than 3 sections. And you will find, inside the text, notes about the fact that you've used an unregistered software to create your e-paperback.
Anyway, e-paperbacks created by this program are royalty free - even those created by unregistered version (see note below).

What Instant EBuilder is, and what is NOT
Instant EBuilder is a front end to an engine that generates e-paperback files (in EXE or in EPB format) - but remember that e-paperbacks and Instant EBuilder are NOT in anyway the same thing:
- e-paperbacks are a specific e-book format, created by Marco Giorgini for KULT Virtual Press. They have got qualities and limits (at present they don't handle TABLES and a some other specific RTF features). They got free readers, and one free builder, called EBuild Light.
- THIS program, instead, is simply a new (and a lot easier and quicker) software to generate them. This software could not deal with all the features of e-paperback - but it avoids a lot of work for the common user. Try it deeply - and before thinking about registering it - check if it can do what you're looking for.
