CreateSpace for Beginners
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
CreateSpace is arguably the best place to start if you're a self-published author who wants to publish a paperback.
But it can be a bit overwhelming.
This book will walk you through the basics, including (1) what options you have for creating your book's interior and cover, (2) the key things you should consider when formatting your book's interior (such as paragraph formatting, font choice, indents, and what on earth widows and orphans even are), and (3) how to navigate the CreateSpace website.
While the focus of this book is on publishing on CreateSpace, it's also a good resource for anyone who wants to know the basics of print formatting without having to read through a book like The Elements of Typographic Style.
