DescriptionQuite a while before, on the desktop far, far away...

Who has not wanted not only creating their own guide, but seeing it in print o-n, having a replica for their shelf, buying 'five copies for my mother'?

Well, you will do-it for some cybernetic elbow grease and a $99 price. For one more standpoint, consider checking out: These pages will show you how I did it, and chances are you may do it too. I discovered by browsing the Internet. I have been studying for several years about Print On Demand, the nifty new techology where you devote PDF documents on one end (One for the cover, one for the insides) and an attractive, perfect-bound, bookstore-quality book happens another. I have also seen the technology in action at an document imaging tradeshow (that's my career, from the way.)

I have known others who have used Print On Demand (POD) as a means to self-publish, including my own personal father. My problem with that is I've no room in my own garage for books, I don't would like to get involved in the act of attempting to sell and delivery books, handling returns, and so forth.

Suddenly, while Googling some thing a week ago, I came across some wonderful Goo. Amazon, the internet bookstore, has consumed a POD founder called BookSurge, making it a different Amazon department. Now I could get my book project, upload it to Amazon/BookSurge, pay a price, and VOILA! my book is on Amazon for everybody to purchase. It ships within 48 hours, BookSurge pays a-25 royalty to me within 60-days, I will even buy five copies for my mother at a discount!

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

Since my book design project was made to be the forerunner of numerous more games, $99 looked just like the approach to take. This riveting site has oodles of original suggestions for how to engage in it.

I ran all around the site, getting case PDFs, submission guidelines, and whatever else I may find. The 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 need to work with me, because that's what I'd on my desktop, and I don't want to spend months learning still another desktop publishing application, while I am sure it is a good one.

Besides, I had been thinking about writing this page, and I wanted to come up with a procedure most everyone will be comfortable with.

Really the only shortcut I got is that my address is plain text, without any pictures onto it. I figured my first book will provide largely if not entirely o-n Amazon, and a fairly cover isn't that important there. In any case, I can always go back and enhance my edition (The extra charge for resubmitting either the inside or even the cover is $50, once the book is published.)
