Spiner

Spiner is a tool that allows you to easily author you own Choose Your Own Adventure books using Twine 2. It transforms your published Twine story into EPUB ebook that you can read on modern e-reader.

Get Started    Guides

An EPUB can contain additional information about your book in the form of metadata. E-reader, websites and e-book management software can then use this information to for example improve your user experience. For example, Calibre can sort e-books based on author, publisher, title, etc.
