Sourcefabric’s SaaS: Open-Source Book Creation Tools for All | Publishing Perspectives

One of its most exciting features is that multiple people can work on a book. That can mean collaborators simultaneously writing various chapters; several readers suggesting changes to a draft; an author, editor, and translator working within one unified system…the sky is pretty much the limit. Collaborators can communicate via an internal chat system, or leave comments. Changes are tracked and various versions (translations, updates, special editions) can be saved. Probably one of Booktype’s most impressive qualities is that even though it’s a tool, it isn’t a complicated one. That is, even if you’re not taking advantage of some of its features, they probably won’t get in your way, so it still might be a good solution for you.
