Self-Publishing 101 Episode #5

Welcome to this week's episode of Self-Publishing 101. We're going to be discussing formatting for Print. I'm going to use Createspace as our example, however I am also including links for other print distributors. And, here we go...
Screen shots
This is the screen on Createspace that you will see when you are starting a new title.


This is honestly super simple. Just insert the unique responses that will correspond to your books.

The formatted template is available for download from this page. Please, remember to choose the correct size that you want your book BEFORE you download the template.


Here is where you will upload your completed book document.

Make sure you read, and re-read what you enter for mispellings, missing words, etc.

Here is where you will start uploading your cover or creating one online.


You need to fill each of these in while your files are in review.


This is what the formatted template looks like in your Microsoft Word. See what I mean about easy? You just replace what they have with your books contents.


Remember, what I talked about with the chapters and from chapter 10 on you'll need to page break the chapters.
