How to Create Your Book o-n Amazon for $99

Big Grin  How to Create Your Book o-n Amazon for $99
Quite a while ago, on a desktop far, far away...

That has not dreamed of not only writing their very own book, but seeing it in publications on, having a copy for their shelf, getting 'five copies for my mother'?

Well, you will do-it for a $99 price and some cybernetic elbow grease. This page will show you how I did it, and odds are you can do it too. I've been reading for several years about Print On Demand, the neat new techology where you place in PDF documents on one end (One for the cover, one for the interiors) and an attractive, perfect-bound, bookstore-quality book arrives the other. I have also seen the technology in action at an document imaging tradeshow (that is my profession, from the way.)

I have known as a way to self-publish, including my own father other folks who've used Print On-demand (POD). My problem with that's I've no place in my own garage for books, I do not want to get involved in the act of attempting to sell and shipping books, handling earnings, etc.

Suddenly, while Googling something this morning, I stumbled on some fantastic Goo. Amazon, the internet bookstore, has consumed a POD author named BookSurge, which makes it another Amazon team. Now I could upload it to Amazon/BookSurge, get my book project, pay a price, and VOILA! my book is o-n Amazon for all to buy. I-t ships within 48 hours, BookSurge gives a 25% royalty to me within 60 days, I will also get five copies for my mother at a discount!

I sent BookSurge and was given an account manager, who I'll call Joseph (since his name is Joseph). I asked about the details of publishing a book. For $599 I could have the hand-holding, mail us your manuscript version of the publishing, or if I was bold, brave, and could format my own PDFs, for $99 I could make use of the Author's Express plan to upload my book projects.

$99 felt like the way to go, since my book generation project was designed to be the precursor of several more games.

I went all around the site, downloading case PDFs, submission guidelines, and anything else I could find. Your 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 would have to work with me, because that is what I had o-n my desktop, and I do not want to spend months learning still another desktop publishing application, while I'm sure it's a good one.

Besides, I was already considering writing these pages, and I wanted to come up with an activity most anyone would be comfortable with.

Really the only shortcut I took is that my cover is plain text, with no images on it. I realized my first book will probably offer mostly if not entirely o-n Amazon, and quite a cover is not that essential there. Clicking possibly provides suggestions you can use with your uncle.
