BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This is a highly detailed guide with several step-by-step instructions for how to format and publish your book both as a paperback book with Amazon (and other major online booksellers) and as an eBook with Kindle (and a variety of other eReaders).
The book is both highly informative (like describing how to set the margins with bleed, including the gutter, and listing the pixel sizes of different brands of eReaders), yet also focused on useful formatting and publishing skills.
With this reference as a guide, you can self-publish a quality manuscript with ease.
The paperback edition includes a comprehensive, 18-page index to help you quickly find information.

The paperback instructions are largely geared toward CreateSpace, while the eBook instructions accommodate Kindle and other eReaders.
