Summary

In order to publish and sell a Book on any publishing website, you need a ready-to-print PDF layout that supports all the requirements of the publisher system. You can create the PDF independently or use other production software like InDesign, or you can buy a paid professional production service.Book cover creation is the very last creative step when publishing a book. Thats because almost everything about the anatomy of a book cover is controlled by the final, edited version of the book: the trim size, paper color and number of pages all determine your covers dimensions. You need to design the cover after the final draft is finished. Book cover design is comprised of text and images. You must note: the front cover, back cover, spine, layout, picture, fonts, and other elements of the cover.The book consists of manuscript and cover. On the publishing website, you can upload your manuscript. The publishing website will automatically convert the manuscript to proofed PDF prior to publishing/printing.  Depending on the publishing website, you can create your book cover using Cover Creator tool or submit your book cover in a PDF.Publishing Print books at KDP amazon kdp.amazon.com, Lulu.com and notionpress.com is straightforward, as you can just upload your manuscript as a PDF, DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML, or TXT file. Kdp.amazon.com, notionpress.com and Lulu.com will automatically convert these file types to PDF prior to publishing/printing. You can create your book cover using Cover Creator tool within the websites. The free Cover Creator helps you to create and customize your eBook, paperback, or hardcover cover with a variety of layouts and fonts. Cover Creator uses the book details you enter during title setup and adds your book's ISBN to the barcode area on the back coverBut other publishing websites such as streetlib.com, ingramspark.com, blurb.com, press.barnesandnoble.com and feiyr.com requires from the authors to prepare the Paperback book manuscript in PDF format, and to design and submit the book cover in a PDF format according to their specifications. So, the author must have good knowledge on the formatting requirements for the book interior, and needs to create a paperback cover, using design software to be able to publish in such websites.So, when you create a paperback book, you need to format and upload two files: a manuscript file, which is the interior of your book, and a cover file, which is the outside of your book including the front, back, and spine.

    The #1 New York Times bestseller about one woman’s doomed quest for self-improvement by a writer “blessed with the comic equivalent of perfect pitch” (The Boston Globe). As far as Erma can tell, her life is going well. Her children speak to her, her husband smiles at her, and she’s capable of looking in a mirror without screaming. But her friends know better. No matter how happy Erma thinks she is, she’s in need of help, and the only way to fulfillment is a ten-foot stack of self-improvement books. From Sensual Needlepoint to Fear of Buying, Erma will try them all. One book recommends bringing roleplay into the bedroom, so she dresses up in her son’s football pads. She tries to meditate but gets stuck in the lotus position. She spends more time in the kitchen but only succeeds in melting her son’s retainer. No matter how hard she tries to improve her family life, her schemes keep backfiring. As she soon learns, you may not always be able to fix what’s not broken—but with enough self-help books, you can break anything you want. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

    “Marvel at the extreme dexterity and patience of 24 contemporary artists who painstakingly labor to create artworks at minuscule scale in this adorably tiny coffee-table book. From Hasan Kale, who somehow turns halved almonds and matchstick heads into canvases, to Salavat Fidai, who carefully carves pencils into tiny lead sculptures, each diminutive piece offers mind-blowing demonstrations of craft, skill, and artistic vision.” —Artnet 
     
    “Spectacular . . . . There are embroidered portraits no larger than a quarter, intricate landscapes painted on lockets, and exquisite sculptures carved into the tips of pencils . . . . This is a fun, accessible, and compact book that both casual and enthusiastic art fans will enjoy.” —Publishers Weekly

    “Get ready to love [dogs] even more. A book full of courage, dedication, hope and faith—not just in mankind, but in mankind’s best friend.” —Denis LearyDog Heroes of September 11th: A Tribute to America’s Search and Rescue Dogs, now in its Tenth Anniversary second edition, is the first and only major publication to salute the canines that served our nation in the recovery missions following the terrorists’ strikes on America. A testament to man’s best friend and his most critical role in American history, this special book pays tribute to seventy-nine canine heroes and their handlers, retelling their heart-stirring stories, and photographically capturing many defining moments of the days that followed September 11, 2001. Award-winning author Nona Kilgore Bauer interviewed each of the handlers who participated in the recovery efforts at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, Shanksville, Penn., and the Fresh Kills landfill, and lovingly retells their stories of heroism and bravery. Recently updated and expanded with over one hundred new pages and more than one hundred fifty new full-color photographs, this book also includes chapters on military working dogs in Iraq and Afghanistan, the therapy dogs who worked at Ground Zero, the SDF’s new National Training Center, and post-9/11 rescue missions at home and abroad. A special section, written by selected 9/11 handlers, pays tributes to their canine partners who passed away after their recovery missions. This book supports the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) in its mission to produce certified search and rescue teams to protect our whole nation, and a portion of the proceeds of Dog Heroes of September 11th benefit the SDF.“This book will touch the soul; highly recommended.” —Library Journal

    Steve Dangle’s incredible odyssey, from self-starting Leafs lover to sports-media star
    		 
    How do you turn ranting about hockey into a career? Steve “Dangle” Glynn is a YouTuber, podcaster, and sports personality from Toronto, who managed to turn a 16-second online rant about the Maple Leafs into a career in sports media. From video blogging in his parents’ house at 19 to yelling on televisions across Canada at 28, Dangle has been involved with some of the most important sports companies in the country. 
    		 
    In between tales of Steve’s adventures, both online and off, This Team Is Ruining My Life is also a kind of how-to (or how-not-to) guide: in an ever-evolving media landscape, sometimes you have to get creative to find the job you want. This is Steve Dangle and his accidentally on purpose journey through sports media so far.
