Making a Novel 2017 self-published
As I singularly put the final touch, I thought it would be great to cover all the stages necessary to publish a novel so that every readership who thinks about doing the same (or myself in a year or two) has a finished tutorial for the game. Write - What should I use when I write?
Preparing my paper for publishing? Publishing - How do I get my books into different ebook/paperback canals? Although I should point this out if you are looking for a TL;DR, novelists may not be an excellent way to pass the idyll. For most fonts the lingua franca is Microsoft Word, so you have to buy that finally, in the meantime I suggest another write utility:
There is a new pen on the market that is great for an initial design. It' a neat, distraction-free, well-organized pen that lets you even count words and extracts and encourage each other. It' named Singular Writer and is FREE while it's still in beta. Once you have finished reading it, indulge in desperation, work on it again until you can be asleep.
"I know, Front Matters" is the umbrella word for everything at the beginning of the work. Aren't I the publisher mob? As we are planning to publish our work with Createspace, we have to do something. These " intentionally empty " pages make sure that your cover page will appear on the right page of the print.
That wasn't intuitively at first, because every two-page PDF previews makes you think you're looking at a story, but if you don't put those pages on it, the cover appears on the lefthand side and looks strange. To write the copyrights page, I urge you to create a pile of your favourite stories and then make your page as much as its look as you can.
As I' m not a solicitor, I won't try to unravel it again, we're just trying to make a beautiful looking novel. Nevertheless, this "consensus from my favourite books" technology was a useful instrument for this whole cognition. However, use the latest titles as there have been major changes in the world of printing.
Remark: I ignore the topic eBook front in Scrivener completely and concentrate only on the pocketbook one. Because Scrivener is responsible for our pocketing. We have another eBook utility that we will use later. Reread any affirmations chapters and you will see that typing a textbook is not a single effort.
It has been created by Gabe Rodriguez of Rodriguez Inc. Later, I expect you to have your covers as a print-ready PDF according to certain standard. You have an astonishing disguise, and your grammatical errors are a thing of the past. You' re willing to go public. We now have to make the pocketbook and the eBook available for release seperately.
Well it does, but you still need to optimize it to make the script look the way you want it to. By the way, what should your work be? At the end I wanted my work to look like this inside: It is a neat read that is deceitfully hard to attain.
After reading it about eleven readings, I can confirm that it is kind to the eye and that it is valuable the additional amount of gel that is needed. This is to sort the recto/verso shit for the front page. At the bottom, where "TITLE" is written, you can click on a typeface and specify it.
A very important decision....which typeface should you use for the frame of your text? Type is a vast topic and should best be entrusted to an expert (in other words, ask your designer), but there are some genealogies that are of use. The numbers for the borders are dependent on how many pages your eBook has in the end (larger groove for larger eBook, as it is more difficult to fold all these pages).
If you click on "Compile" you will receive a print-ready PDF of your text. I chose Vellum for the eBook. Name, artwork, writer, etc. It is blocked on sale, so make sure you know what you want to call the product before you do so. Congratulations, now you have a directory with all eBook variants.
There are two ways to do this if you are in the United States: an ISBN (free) or one from Bowker's (expensive). The possibility to publish under my own "Imprint" was important to me, so I founded a company and purchased ISBNs. And if you don't mind, take the free Cratespace one.
You need one ISBN for each copy of your eBook (one for eBook, one for Paperback). As I haven't completed this technical stage yet, I plan to have this section changed in the next few months (my first volume Singular will be available on March 31!), but that's what it looks like today.
You' re gonna need a short text for your work. They may think: "I have just written 100,000 words. And I think I've been spending ten long and ten long sessions with these well-cut twelve tens and six words, and I'm still trying to optimize them. If you go to Amazon to browse a metric tons of bibliographies for titles in a similar category, then go and do the same.
Singlular is a cheerful dystopic coming-of-age storyline strongly wound around an A.I. singleness incident, so of course I've broken it down into the key words they let me use and selected pertinent sci-fi classes (apocalypse, etc.). But I' ll refresh this section as soon as I put it in the other eBookplaces.
Whilst I am sure I will soon be switching to KDP's pocket publication, at the moment it' Createspace' is the favoured one. Choose the free of charge crew space or the new "Custom Universal" itinerary. It' s mostly a matter of whether you write just one or possibly more than one story. Get any books you like in your own discipline.
Use a rule and get exactly the dimensions you like best. See the Createspace option. A few people who read Alfa also didn't like the feeling of the matt covers. You can order an "author proof" before you click on the big publish-icon.
Sure, you could use their covers maker, but then you would have a horrible choice of fonts and completely no designs, hence my suggestion for a designe. However, here's the bottom line, you need to give them the precise PDF artwork they need to deliver a print-ready PDF. You can also calculate the back width by page and page and make it available to your designers.
As soon as the real contents and artwork of the notebook are accepted, you can let go of your pocketbook to the rest of the worid by specifying its allocation. When you have not selected a Createspace ISBN, you cannot choose "Libraries & Academic Institutions", but that's the way it is. If you fill in everything, your eBook will be released, so keep a little in standby when you try to timeout the pocket edition with the eBook pre-order.
You need to choose a class for your textbook, so make sure it's a good one. You should create links to the Kindle and Createspace versions for a joint detail page. As such I am not the best person to ask about Marketing etc. Thank you for having read so far, I trust you will be writing a beautiful work that will please innumerable tasty readers!
By the way, you seem to have remarkably good tastes and would love my work. Singular has started after an excessive amount of time!
