Reviews and Appearances
"We hit the Google trail in search of e-book enlightenment. If it wasn't for Jutoh, we'd still be in the dark."
Australian Financial Review, July 27th, 2010 ("Jutoh writes a new chapter in the manual of e-publishing")
CBS's Sunday Morning programme did a piece on self-publishing on 9th December 2012, called
Authors Excercise Their 'Write' To Self-Publish.
At 1 minute 25s there are some shots of Jutoh helping
the best-selling novelist Stephanie Bond convert her books to Kindle format.
The Target Internet web site has an entertaining podcast about publishing Kindle books,
How to Self-Publish With Amazon,
with an honourable mention of Jutoh as the tool that helped to banish their ebook frustrations. "It's good. Very good... the best $30 I've spent."
Bold emphasis has been added to key words and phrases for readability.
"Good experience trying out Jutoh. Produced very nice versions of my book for KDP, Smashwords, Nook. Good tech support too.
Vik Rubenfeld, Los Angeles, USA (creator of the TV show "Early Edition")
"Jutoh is the best ebook creation tool available. I know for sure because I have tried virtually all
of them over the years. Jutoh takes the drama out of making high quality Mobi/KF8/Epub files,
and product support is excellent."
Don Hughes, www.BookPublishingMentor.com
"I've been working with Jutoh for a while now. I'm not a patient person, so I tend to jump in with both feet
and only when needed do I start trying to find answers to problems or to satisfy a need. I soon discovered
that I could accomplish a surprisingly good result with Jutoh with very little understanding!
Of course, I've now progressed beyond the simple. That really happened when I wanted to 'prettify'
manuscripts and especially when I came to publishing my first actual ebook. I still have much to learn,
naturally, but having discovered the power that Jutoh is capable of providing, I can only say that
I am immensely impressed! The program is phenomenal, and when coupled with the ebook
Creating Great Ebooks Using Jutoh by Julian Smart it becomes a tool that I
honestly think all authors need. I can only say a huge 'Thank you' for this phenomenal product!"
"Jutoh allows me to use exactly the same interface no matter what operating system I happen to be using
and has loads of features, including being able to keep all research notes in a scrap file within the writing project.
The ebook conversion tools work flawlessly. I was able to do conversions to epub and mobi formats and save them
to the cloud and then preview them using the free Kindle and Nook apps available on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet.
I was able to paste the progress I had made using Microsoft Word into the new program with ease and my writing
productivity increased immediately. The best part was the software only cost $39.00 and I could download a demo
before purchasing the complete software. Any questions I had concerning the software were promptly answered via email by Dr Julian Smart and the answers
were always spot on."

"We have used Jutoh since July 2010 and found it an excellent product for producing professional quality ebooks.
It's easy to use and flexible too. The support team are quick to respond to questions and suggestions and are very
knowledgeable of their product. We consider Jutoh an excellent strategic decision and readily recommend it to
anyone in the ebook business."
Lyndon Smith - Director, Infomedia UK Ltd
"I was wanting to publish some of my writings in digital format. I had no idea at all where to start.
The programs for composing eBooks were either very expensive or skimpy. An online review led me to Jutoh.
I cannot believe that I now have writings in the Kindle store and PDF and epub formatted writings in my
web store. I see my own writings on my iPhone! As an amateur, I had a number of questions.
Julian answered each one, patiently and respectfully. I am grateful to have found Jutoh! Thank you Julian."
Thomas Hersh, Ph.D., Clinical Psychology, Newfane, Vermont, USA
"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I continue to enjoy using Jutoh, it has actually helped me
to start a small publishing company. I'm grateful for Jutoh whenever I'm working on an ebook, which is most days now.
Having this has been a life changer for me. I'm a Linux user, and I appreciate (very very much) that you have Linux
packages for your software."
Adam T., Taiwan
"Jutoh is one of the best kept secrets of the e-publishing world. I am writing my biography for my family and after searching
and trying many other poor, limited and flawed software offerings I found Jutoh Wow! What a difference!"
Tom and Di, Canada
"I just want to say Jutoh has made an immense difference to my life. Being able to produce error free eBooks is something
I only dreamt about in the past. I compile anything from 1 to 5 eBooks a week. Some full length novels or anthologies
and with those it's great to be able to tweak the formatting to get a result as near to the original PDF and print copy. Thank you."
"I just wanted you to know I purchased Jutoh. I had been struggling for weeks trying to sort through the mass of
(mis)information out there on how to produce ebooks. I transferred it all into Jutoh and wow, that same day it
was submitted to Amazon, and approved within hours. Since then I have added another book, and honestly,
I can't believe how straightforward the process has been. I'm very happy with my investment, and wish
I'd found it sooner! If I can use Jutoh, anyone can. (I'm neither young nor a techie.) It's a great program,
and kudos to you and your team for a fine job. I will not hesitate to recommend your product. You have made my life
a lot easier, so thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"BTW, I just have to add that I can't appreciate Jutoh enough - I just don't know any other editor, cheap or expensive,
that gives me the functions I need and are offered."
"As someone who has been in software development since 1966 and spent 25+ years running a software company,
I have to say that your support is probably the best I've ever come across!"
"Jutoh is a marvelous cross-platform ebook authoring tool I couldn't have done without. I was able to write my
book in MS-word, and Jutoh can clean up the junk in docx files very nicely. Jutoh told me how to make my covers,
generates cross platform and faithfully reproduces all the hypertext in my book. For a non-fiction author,
Jutoh is a must have so that you can be sure to get your final product just right. Doing that takes many
iterations of re-importing the MS-Word file and Jutoh handles it beautifully. I had far more trouble
with my citation manager software than with Jutoh. This is an amazingly sophisticated piece of software
that supports any conceivable output format. And now that Smashwords is going to allow authors to submit
their own files for each ebook format, this is something that every ebook author should have. I really can't say
enough about Jutoh as an authoring tool. Seriously, this product saved my bacon. I don't know how much more
time it would have taken without it, but it would have taken at least another 3 to 6 months.
If this authoring tool was the same price as EndNote, which costs €238, it would be a steal.
At it's current price, it's a phenomenal value."
Brian Hanley, Canada
"I think your software is of such great value for money that I had to have the most advanced version!"
Steve F., Spain
"When I realized halfway through the writing of my book that I wanted to publish it digitally rather than in print,
I spent several frustrating days trying out software that promised to convert the word processor file into Epub and Mobi format.
Nothing came close to being satisfactory, and I turned my attention to ebook authoring tools.
Again, there was frustration, but then I discovered this amazing, inexpensive, well-supported program.
Jutoh quickly dispelled my fears that I would miss the flexibility of my old word processor.
Everything I needed for ebook publishing is here: styles, images, search and replace, table of contents, and indexing.
I used all of it, creating a comprehensive nonfiction book about my topic with the equivalent of
over 500 letter-size pages, four levels of headings, around 180 cited references,
and nearly 1400 index entries. And you know what? When I imported the final product back
into my word processor, it looked great! I can't recommend Jutoh highly enough.
It worked wonderfully for this huge book of mine, and so it will almost certainly work for yours."
Edwin A. Suominen, author, "Examination of the Pearl"
"I've been using Jutoh since mid-summer, and I just want to say that it is an
astoundingly well-designed, reliable, and flat-out useful tool. I've used
both the Windows and Linux versions (depending on what partition of my
computer I'm working in) and I recommend it to anyone looking to create an
epub or mobi eBook."
"Jutoh not only lets me convert and create ebooks myself, the new Jutoh ebook explains everything about ebook creation and design.
Which saves you 50 bucks an hour or more for paying for design and layout help.
My Kindle and Nook versions are almost finished thanks to Jutoh."
"I'd hate to try and produce an EPUB book and get all this right without Jutoh."
Terry R.-K., UK
"I downloaded the most recent version and purchased it earlier today. I have to say I LOVE this program - it is so much easier
to use than Sigil, and produces very nice looking e-Books. I was able to produce a perfect e-Pub
(with 1400 hyperlinks, bookmarks, and internal links) from an HTML file created with Word,
in less than 2 hours. Previously this took me a week with Sigil... Thanks again for this EXCELLENT tool.
I cannot tell you how happy I am to have it!"
"Jutoh is a remarkable program. In a complex field it offers a simple-to-use
interface with generous options and faultless performance. It accepts a wide
variety of input files and can create MOBI, EPUB and other standard ebook
formats. It compiles and checks projects and links to preview software. It
also allows for extensive metadata entry. All this in a neat and tidy
presentation. When the only other options seemed to be an expensive and
unnecessary outlay on something like Adobe In-Design, this came out of the
blue and has answered all our prayers. I love it."
Ellis Delmonte, Hawkwood Books, Lincoln
"I just wanted to say your software is bloody genius. The Smashwords
conversion went brilliantly... Jutoh has been a God-send and the learning
curve will really pay off in the future. Having come across many many
forums where new digital authors are having a painful birth in converting
to the digital platform, Jutoh is something that many of them don't know
about. Your software will make a difference. My book is now
live on the Amazon and Smashword sites. It reaches Apple in two weeks.
Your software helped make that happen."
"I am grateful that I discovered Jutoh. It took me some time to format the first book, mainly because I had to learn how to
use named styles in Open Office writer, but now I am confident in the ebook creation process.
Tech support was awesome. I am thrilled with Jutoh and recommend it highly."
"Jutoh is way ahead of any of the ebook editors - and I have tried a number of them, even Adobe's InDesign."
"Just used your excellent product to create two Kindle e-books... the Jutoh-exported .mobi files went straight into
Amazon without any problems. You've made it so easy, you might convert me from my PDF bias!"
"I just wanted to write and thank you a thousand times over for coming up with Jutoh... I can't begin to tell you
how much simpler it has made my life. Create once and send out everywhere in all formats is a Godsend,
and I have been able to supplement my own titles with those of others, through my publishing company.
I learned a lot about proper formatting for eBooks, taking into consideration the various formats,
from ePub to ODT and even plain text. I dreaded the thought of manually going through each one,
only to have to wade through the inevitable feedback, in order to fix everything by trial and error.
In a single evening, I was able to submit to both B&N and Smashwords, with flying colors, no less!
Thank you for putting such a wonderful product together."
"Thanks again for all the help. Jutoh is by far the best epublishing tool I've used so far!"
"Problem: A large file with many mathematical symbols that had to be inserted as .png images.
Mobipocket produced the images as black squares, Calibre seemingly did not have the memory allocated.
My solution: If anyone wants to try this sort of publication, the only compiler that worked for me was Jutoh.
I suggest you flatten the images and do not convert .png to .jpg"
"I just wanted to take a few moments and send a quick hello and say thank you again.
I am one of your paying, registered users. I have no idea how many of those you may have,
but I must say that you may be the best customer service I regularly encounter.
You are always receptive, always quick to implement and always gracious in your correspondence.
It has been a pleasure to do business with you and your product just keeps getting better.
You are, from a customer service standpoint, a model that every business should emulate."
"I felt I should send you another thank you for the help and support you offered me.
Your program is just what I have been looking for. I am totally happy with the results.
I will be telling anyone I come across who needs electronic book software about Jutoh. This is a winner!"
David M. White
"I bought Jutoh because I was struggling to get my manuscript into epub format.
What a delight! As soon as I got comfortable with the user interface (which took
about 5 minutes) I was formatting my novel, Tag, immediately. I subsequently
uploaded it to Mobilereads which has a pretty strong ereader backing
(it was they who insisted I move off pdf), and received nothing but good
comments about the format of the book."
Simon G. Royle, www.simon-royle.com
"Simply put, Jutoh is the best conversion tool out there. The user interface is very friendly, there are many extras built-in,
and the documentation is thorough. Jutoh can take a very large book with many images and successfully convert to
multiple ebook formats that pass the epub validation checks. Anyone who has a book in MS Word can save it to
OpenOffice (which is free, and has a built-in PDF capability amongst other features) and import it to Jutoh.
I have found the Jutoh developer to be extremely accessible, responsive and eager to receive feedback.
This is a high-end, professional piece of software that is practically a give-away!"
"I wanted to thank you so much for the Jutoh tool! It's been wonderful! I was so pleased with how it
worked in creating a mobipocket Kindle edition of a book I've been writing."
"Thank you for another quick, thorough response! Your customer service is amazing."
"I appreciate the quick turn around on providing a fix for the problem and am pleased
that I selected Jutoh as it is always good to know that there is someone prepared
to stand behind their program and react when there is a problem."
"Great product, my only real comment is that it is underpriced, bet you don't hear that too often."
"I really like the app, has been very simple and pleasant to use so far."
"Thanks for your initial help, the swiftness of your responses was one reason why I subsequently purchased Jutoh."
"Great piece of software... Just finished another book using the 1.07 software, worked very well and passed the validation process no issues."
"It works like a charm."
"Just wanted to say thanks again for helping and I just registered it. The epubs look great!"
"I am really impressed that you have captured a pretty organic work flow that the 'majors' (Adobe) can't comprehend. Great job!"
