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. Here I will provide the steps on how to format both files, plus tools and resources to help you get started.The report consists from the following sections:1.

    A concise history of GPS, from its military origins to its commercial applications and ubiquity in everyday life.GPS is ubiquitous in everyday life. GPS mapping is standard equipment in many new cars and geolocation services are embedded in smart phones. GPS makes Uber and Lyft possible; driverless cars won't be able to drive without it. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, Paul Ceruzzi offers a concise history of GPS, explaining how a once-obscure space technology became an invisible piece of our infrastructure, as essential to modern life as electric power or clean water.GPS relays precise time and positioning information from orbiting satellites to receivers on the ground, at sea, and in the air. It operates worldwide, and its basic signals are free, although private companies can commodify the data provided. Ceruzzi recounts the origins of GPS and its predecessor technologies, including early aircraft navigation systems and satellites. He describes the invention of GPS as a space technology in the post-Apollo, pre-Space Shuttle years and its first military and commercial uses. Ceruzzi explains how the convergence of three major technological developments—the microprocessor, the Internet, and cellular telephony—enabled the development and application of GPS technology.

    This WWII history and battleground guide offers a fascinating look at the vital and infamous stretch of road through the Netherlands. After the Allied victory at Normandy, Operation Market Garden was intended to cut a path to Germany through the Netherlands. Essential to the plan was a two-lane road that came to be known as Hell's Highway. This was the route that the British 3rd Guards Armored Division had to advance down rapidly to relieve the American Paratroopers of the 82d Airborne at Nijmegen and the British I st Airborne Division at Arnhem. Beginning with the famous capture of Joe’s Bridge by the Irish Guards—an essential preliminary action before the start of Operation Market Garden—historian Tim Saunders guides visitors through the seizure of bridges, the liberation of small towns, and other actions undertaken by the famous Screaming Eagles. With vivid personal accounts throughout, this guide features practical visitor information about monuments and other important sites.
