Editing and book assembly:

I am just starting down this journey so my original thoughts are not much yet. I am still deciding on what technology to use to assemble my books. I have already decided I want to use Vim as my editor. I can't stand word processors like Microsoft Word. I am more fast with minimal typing and creating lots of small files which can be assembled, post-processed and typeset later by tools such as LaTeX or Docbook. For now I am going to attempt my first book in Docbook.

My technical notes on Docbook.


For now I have decided to become self-published. I will make my books available as an ebook in all acceptable formats and as a PDF.
