Self Publishing My Book – What I know so far

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!

  1. Check self-publishing sites for requirements and sample templates

  2. Decide the size of your book

Self-publishing sites:

  1. Createspace – free to submit, you’ll just pay for a proof copy if you want to sell printed copies

  2. Blurb – Same, free to submit, just pay the proof copy

  3. 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.
