A long time before, on the desktop far, far away...

Who has not dreamed of not only creating their own book, but seeing it in publications o-n Amazon.com, having a replica for their shelf, getting 'five copies for my mother'?

Well, you will take action for a $99 charge and some cybernetic elbow grease. These pages will show you how I did it, and chances are you may do it too. I have been reading for several years about Print On Demand, the awesome new techology where you devote PDF documents on one end (One for the cover, one for the interiors) and a beautiful, perfect-bound, bookstore-quality book happens the other. I've also seen the technology in motion at an document imaging tradeshow (that's my career, by the way.)

I have known as an easy way to self-publish, including my own personal father other folks who have used Print On Demand (POD). My problem with that's I've no room within my garage for books, I don't would like to get involved in the process of attempting to sell and shipping books, handling earnings, an such like.

Suddenly, while Googling anything yesterday, I stumbled on some great Goo. Amazon, the online bookstore, has absorbed a POD founder named BookSurge, rendering it a different Amazon division. Now I could pay a fee, publish it to Amazon/BookSurge, just take my book project, and VOILA! my book is on Amazon for everybody to get. I-t ships within 48 hours, BookSurge gives me a 25% royalty within 60-days, I will even buy five copies for my mother in a discount!

I mailed BookSurge and was given an account manager, who I will call Joseph (because his name is Joseph). I inquired about the details of publishing a book. For $599 I could obtain the hand-holding, send us your manuscript version of the publishing, or if I was brave, brave, and could format my own PDFs, for $99 I could make use of the Author's Express system to add my book projects.

$99 looked just like the way to go, since my book generation project was made to be the precursor of several more titles.

I ran all around the site, downloading case PDFs, submission guidelines, and other things I may find. If you believe anything at all, you will probably fancy to explore about https://www.amazon.com/tyler-collins/e/b01a8gj4ie. The website recomends using Adobe -something or another- for text formating, and Adobe Acrobat 6 (not 7!) for PDF creation.

I decided in the git-go that Microsoft Word and PDF Factory Pro will have to work with me, since that's what I'd on my desktop, and I do not need to spend weeks studying another desktop publishing program, although I'm sure it's a great one.

Besides, I was already considering writing these pages, and I wanted to come up with a procedure most everyone will be comfortable with. Navigating To https://www.amazon.com/mechanics-online-reputation-management-control/dp/1519762259 seemingly provides warnings you could give to your pastor.

The sole shortcut I got is that my address is plain-text, without any pictures on it. I figured my first book will offer mostly if not entirely o-n Amazon, and quite a cover is not that important there.

Whatever the case, I could always go back and enhance my model (The additional fee for resubmitting either the inside or even the cover is $50, when the book is published.)
