Having completed the eBook versions of your book, you now want to turn to a print version. In the past, if you wanted to get your book in print you had to either get published or invest a large amount of money into having your book printed in large batches. Now all you need is your book and book cover designed for a print on demand (POD) service such as Createspace. With print on demand, your book is sold on retailer’s websites, printed only when ordered, and then shipped directly to the reader. This service provides authors a realistic and inexpensive way of selling their book in print. Additionally, you can purchase copies of your book, at cost, for distribution among your family and friends, to sell through your own channels, for book signings and promotions you host, or any other use you may have.
Creating the interior layout for your Createspace book works much in the same way as creation of your eBook does, but with more control and creativity than eBooks typically provide. Font choices are wider, layout of the page and how each page is set, headers for your name and the book title, page numbers, drop caps, and every other aspect you see in print books you’ve read over the years is entirely customizable. Here at eB Format we have as much experience creating the interior layout for your print on demand book as we do with creating the eBook versions of your book. Options you may not have thought of and layout details that you may not have realized were standards in the industry, are all common knowledge to us.
We will be sure that your interior layout is done how you want it, while meeting the industry standards, and that when you finally see your words in print, it is every bit as great as you expected it to be.
