Pt 1 * Pt 2 * Pt 3 * Pt 4 * Pt 5
When a reader opens your book, you want to be sure the content you’ve worked so hard to polish shines in design and layout, right? Well, for most self-published authors, this is sadly not the case; in fact, next to poor DIY covers, DIY layout is killing self-published print books to the detriment of the author. To ensure this isn’t the case with your book, The Book Doctor is back with another installment in the “How to Self-Publish with Excellence” series, focusing this week on how to make certain your interior layout is as professional as your cover. If you want your baby to rival—or even exceed—a traditional house publication, it’s crucial to understand the difference between DIY and professional layout artistry, and Stacey will reveal all the secrets! What’s more, she’ll share what you as a writer should look for in contracts when you hire book professionals (editors, cover designers, layout artists, proofreaders, etc.) to safeguard the rights to all of the material you pay for.
And, BONUS! If you didn’t grab it last time, Stacey is once again offering her Master Do’s and Don’ts List of Self-Publishing (with abundant resources!) for Your Partner in Success Radio listeners. It’s a free mini-class to help set you on the right path for your self-publishing journey, and the downloadable PDF is available right here on this page. We hope you find it helpful!
