I’m nearly there….where?……the end of a very long journey. I’m working out the final formatting of the book to upload on to Amazon and Createspace……MUCH harder than I thought (and I started out on my design career pasting up books by hand).
Word (the software) is doing my brain in….chapter breaks, page numbers, headings, odd, even pages, margin widths blah blah blah ….I’ve now resorted to printing the whole book out as a PDF. My printer won’t duplex print so its a page a side and there are nearly 500 pages.
So I am slightly exasperated today as I think about the launch date I have set myself and wonder how on earth I’m going to get this formatting malarky right. Book a venue (I have something rather lovely in mind). Design invites and get my book trailer produced. I then need to upload and order a paperback and download an E book to make sure its all ok. Before ordering 100 copies to give away….Chin chin!
