Best Windows software for writing a non-fiction book (with callouts!)
January 18, 2013 12:34 PM Subscribe
I want to write a non-fiction book with basic formatting like bulleted lists, numbered lists, along with some callouts. Think "XYZ for Dummies". I'm on Windows XP / Windows 7. Don't want to upgrade XP on my seconday machine if not absolutely necessary.

I've tried YWriter, but it seems more geared towards fiction.
Tools like DocBook and LateX seem awfully technical. I don't want to write markup. Trying to stay away from MS Word/Open Office, as I know that can be hard to convert cleanly to ePub and other common formats.
Is there something with chapters and a good way to organize the book that also allows callout boxes and basic formatting, and easy conversion to ePub and other common end formats?
