I know a lot of writers, mainly of science fiction and fantasy, who use OOo
or LO for writing but think they need InDesign or similar if they want to
self-publish a book. When I can, I show them that -- especially for books
that are entirely or mostly text, with no fancy layout -- that LO does just
as well as some expensive proprietary program, is a lot easier to learn to
use, and produces PDFs. In fact, I wrote a book (Self-Publishing Using
LibreOffice) for that audience. That is indeed an excellent audience for a
pamphlet type. As a book editor and publisher, I should have thought of it
myself. I can offer some ideas too.
