Before You Publish, Read and Follow These Directions

Doing these things before you sit down to publish your book on Createspace will save you time and make the process much easier.
  1. Write down the title of your book
  2. Write down the sub title if it has one
  3. Write a short description, 4,000 characters or less
  4. Decide whether you want to pay for an ISBN number or have Createspace assign one for free
  5. Write down some meta tags for your book (what words would people use to search for your book?)
  6. Decide what size you want your book to be (Createspace will suggest 6X9 inches)
  7. Have your book cover ready to upload or be prepared to create one online (If you are creating online there are five pages of templates to choose from and some free images to use.)
  8. Have an author photo ready for the back cove of the book
  9. Write the description that you want for the back cover of the book
  10. Decide how much you want to charge for your book
  11. Decide whether you want to use their expanded distribution network
