Sooner or later, most authors come to the end of what they can do with Word or Scrivener. They begin to realize that their books do not look as good as traditional books published by established publishing companies. The idea that what they are missing is called typography usually comes as a shock; because Word and Scrivener cannot produce typography. This book shows you how. Plus, it teaches you how to streamline your production by eliminating steps which only waste your time. In addition, it covers graphic production: vector or bitmap, files sizes, formats used, and so on for print, PDF, ePUB, and Kindle. There is a section on cover design Why do you need to read this book? It has been stunning to watch and listen as the new Indie authors discuss the problems they are having because they are working in Word. If they are dealing with quality issues, Word rarely has an answer. In fact, it’s sad to see that there is no comprehension that using Word is the source of many of their problems with professionalism and efficient production. This book will give you solutions to that. First: InDesign is no longer too expensive and the simple facts are: you are either going to learn it or you are going to pay someone who does know it to use it for you. Second: there’s nothing like the joy of producing professional work by yourself. The book production aspect is just as much fun and as satisfying as writing the book in the first place. Third: This book gives book design information to the many InDesign users who are now being asked to design and produce books and ebooks. This book will give you the norms, show you how the industry works, and give you the answers you need to communicate with the authors coming to you for book designs. Finally, this book covers online marketing for your book.
