You can start by giving the title of the book, along with adding chapters to it. You can import work of other available authors, to take help from their writing (it’s a paid feature).

My Verdict For Reedsy
Writing a book or an article as a freelancer is always a good passion for some. I am a content writer by profession but sometimes I like to write short stories too. For me, free Reedsy serves as a good online platform to start a book. As it is an online platform, I can access my profile anywhere and continue my work. However, Reedsy is still in developing phase. Many features like editing, inserting images, insert chapter break, insert scene break, index addition, and versions are not available.
Despite all these cons, I should say Reedsy is free and good online platform to start writing a book. I just hope more features are added soon. It’s worth giving a shot at book writing for free.
