Format Your Book for Createspace – promotional price expiring soon

Format for CreatespaceI recently published a Kindle eBook explaining how to format books for Createspace and Lulu using Microsoft Word. It’s available now from Amazon at a special launch price 99c or 77p. The price  will rise soon to $2.99 /£2.06, so if you were thinking of taking advantage of the special offer, do so soon. Alternatively, you could enter for a chance to win a free copy over at Librarything, where there is a member giveaway for the book. There’s some competition for the prizes, though.

Naturally, you could hardly expect to take such a book seriously unless it was also available  in print… through Createspace. That’s coming soon. I had started work on this but had to postpone while I deliver a heavy workload of book-formatting commissions. I can’t think of a more appropriate reason for the delay. One point to make, though. I know for a fact that you can deliver great-looking books through Createspace using nothing other than Word to prepare your manuscript (or Open Office, for that matter, though I’ve not done so myself). Software how-to books are another matter. I need crisper images than Word can currently deliver reliably, so I’ve got my trusty copy of Adobe Acrobat at the ready.
