The publishers at DNAML created a strong and unique choice for eBook software when they created DeskTop Author, our Top Ten Reviews Silver Award winning product. Above all of the eBook software applications that we reviewed, we found that DeskTop Author offered the most unique options for creating your eBook. Everything can be custom created. In our research we also found this product to be the most popular choice among users. The product would have been placed at #1 except the price is significantly higher than all of the other options, so it landed the #2 spot, second only to eBook Maestro.

DeskTop Author has all of the features, tools and usability that we were hoping to find in eBook software. We were surprised with some of the unique features that we found it offered and we thoroughly enjoyed using them as we created multiple eBooks through the application. This application will not disappoint any user if they give it enough time to learn what it has to offer.
