Behind the Glass | Publishing | Formatting

formatting

This is a very short post as most of what I learned about formatting was trial and error.

Formatting for Kindle is wonderfully simple.

Formatting for Createspace is relatively easy. (Okay, I did struggle with cover alignment a little.)

Formatting for Smashwords is hell.

I like to have information provided in easy to read concise sections. Not a 100+ page document. My saving grace were the templates. I don’t think I would have done it correctly without the them. I thought I was rather well versed in using Microsoft Word. Turns out, I’m not. But there is one thing I will say, there is almost nothing better than holding a paperback version of your book in your hands.

 

The next post will be published on 8th October.
