Summary Excerpt Comments

A step-by-step guide for ebook and print formatting and distribution


You have a book you want to self-publish. It has been edited, proofed, and polished until it sparkles. Now you want the front and back cover—and everything inside—to look professional and reflect the content of your book. Most importantly, you want to be sure that potential readers can find it and easily buy it.

Over the past three years, Maggie McVay Lynch has tested a variety of software to determine the simplest, quickest, and most cost-efficient method for writers to take their books from manuscript form to publication and sales. And now she shares her process in DIY Publishing. Lynch demystifies the technology with her easy-to-read explanations, as she helps you properly format your word processor document for conversion to all publish-ready file types. Each step contains illustrated examples and screen shots of the software.

Lynch also shares vital insights that are indispensable to writers of fiction and non-fiction alike about the changing state of publishing, the realities of discoverability, and the importance of metadata in our digital world. This book will provide you with everything you need to professionally design your final product and submit it to all major distributors, including Ingrams, Baker & Taylor, CreateSpace, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Apple.
