Author is not a standalone piece of software. It’s part of a publishing strategy.

Look at the Author EULA in the light of a publisher’s agreement.

 

It’s pretty generous. This is a tool that Apple gives you for producing books to sell through Apple. Perhaps they’ll change that in the future but that’s the agreement for now.

 

In addition, if you want to give your book away you can use Apple’s tools to produce a book that you distribute any way you want. I don’t have those rights when I write for any other publisher.

It’s great to read the opinion of a published author.
