Holding Out for an ePub Hero

Serenity Caldwell:

Between the Kindle Store, iBookstore, and Google Bookstore, the ebooks market has exploded.

And yet, our tools to build these books are as primitive as those for early 1990s HTML. There is exactly one program that can edit ePub files directly—Sigil—and while I applaud what the app strives to do, it’s being worked on by just one developer and ported to multiple operating systems. As a result, it’s unpolished, unoptimized for the Mac, slow, and bug-ridden.
