A small book you can use or pass on to others showing you how you can publish for free and share your good news.
Here is part of Chapter 1: Create
This morning I had an idea: Why not make a book explaining how to make a book for free?
So here it is.
I’ve been publishing books for a while. It used to cost me a lot, but. now I do it for free. So can you.
All the guide books and articles that I found seemed hard to understand, so I thought: Why not make a simple guide book that anyone can use? Here it is. This book is available to order in print or immediately available on Kindle. I uploaded it to CreateSpace publishers for free.View Post
All you need is a computer (or laptop, or tablet, or even an iphone) linked to the internet.. The Kindle version is handy because it has direct links to web pages. Here are the links to find this book information on the web:
I chose to print this book in ‘color’. That costs a bit more but for small books of 24-40 pages or so, copies are not expensive. If you use images or photographs they look better in color.
So if you would like to publish a book like this simple one for free, go ahead. It’s easy to do. You can upload it today for free and order copies today. You just pay for the copies you order, from one to any number you want. And authors/publishers get their copies cheaper than anyone else!
Possibilities are endless!
An easy way to start would be by using your family or holiday photos. Many people have albums on web pages such as on Facebook but books are still popular and welcome, especially as gifts.
You may like to use images as I have done in my Appendix here.
Perhaps you could consider fiction or non-fiction. Most of my books are non-fiction, but I have included fiction stories that a pre-school grandson told me when he was 3 and 4. Uploading many edited copies to the publisher cost nothing as I gradually improved the layout of the book. There’s a holiday idea for you with your children or grandchildren
An older grandson wrote a biography for a primary school assignment so I published that and it became a welcome and popular gift. He did the layout himself. You could help your children or grandchildren make a small book of around 24 pages.
Your children or grandchildren may appreciate your autobiography, or part of your life story. The world has changed so much since the twentieth century that your story could be really interesting especially if you illustrate it with some photos. You could start with some small books and then combine them into one larger volume later.
I have published various essays written by my students and made them available in a book. If you do that you become the editor of that book. Students often gave their work to me with better formatting than I can do myself. I have encouraged students to publish their work, for free.
Maybe you lead or speak in a study group and could gather your material into a small resource book. You can have that published and in your hands within a month, or have it available on Kindle tomorrow! I often use my books as resources for my speaking or teaching.
Why not try something to begin? You may find yourself enjoying this hobby and helping or blessing others in the process.
