Self Publishing My Book
What I Know So Far (For Children’s Book)
Step 1: Story
Have a super amazing story, that even you can fell in love with it!
Check self-publishing sites for requirements and sample templates
Decide the size of your book
Createspace – free to submit, you’ll just pay for a proof copy if you want to sell printed copies
Blurb – Same, free to submit, just pay the proof copy
Lulu – Same, free to submit, just pay the proof copy
Step 2: Write
Write it down, from start to finish. Divide it into chapters if you need to.
Step 3: Prepare
Format the story (Or find someone to format it for you). I used Bookwright from blurb, it also has a plugin for InDesign users. I like the app, it’s easy to use and you can see the preview of the book which makes it more exciting.
