How to Format A Book for CreateSpace

Kelly PhillipsSelf Publishing, Tech Solutions


So you’ve decided to self-publish your book and you want to have physical copies that you can sell at events and use for giveaways. Or maybe you just like the feel of that paperback in your hand and don’t want the only option for your book to be digital. Printing your book through CreateSpace is a low cost option that allows you to have professional looking books without the high cost or large print runs. You just need to figure out how to format a book for CreateSpace.

However, (and you knew there was a catch) in order to publish on CreateSpace you have to do the formatting of the book yourself. You can pay someone to do it for you, but if you’re ready to try this yourself, I’ll show you how. This is my second post in a series where I walk you through how I self-published The No-Fear Guide to Updating WordPress through CreateSpace. The first post is an overview of the CreateSpace publishing process, while this post is a video showing you how to format the interior of your book.
