9780945962441: The BookBook: A Complete Guide To Creating A Book On Your Computer

Inside Information the Big Publishers Don’t Want You to Have! Publishers typically reject 999 of 1000 manuscripts submitted—and your talent, knowledge, and writing skills may have nothing to do with it! Is this how you want your literary creation treated? Publishing industry trends endanger good writers. More and more people are writing, but good writers have to compete with amateurs clogging up the system with unpublishable work, adding their manuscripts to the “slush pile.” Tighter budgets make publishers more selective than ever. The competition for bookstore shelf-space is fierce. With all those factors against you, it’s no wonder the average author waits 5–25 years for that first acceptance and publication. Aren’t you tired of postponing what you know you deserve? Don’t wait for that elusive stroke of good luck—publish and sell your book yourself! Self-publishing books abound. Graphic design books for producing flyers and brochures are everywhere. But where will you find everything you need to know about editing, typesetting, and designing an entire book on your own computer? In The Book Book: A Complete Guide to Creating a Book on Your Computer, of course! Self-publishing encompasses three immutable certainties: It’s hard work, it’s not cheap, and it’s very gratifying. If you do what it takes, a fourth certainty can be yours: it’s profitable! The Book Book was designed to make book planning, typesetting, layout, and prepress production accessible to and easy for anyone with computer experience. Making your book marketable entails complying with some oftentimes rigid industry standards, allowing little deviation. Your book doesn’t have to be among the volumes of poorly-designed printed matter. Your book can stand out and command respect, even awe. In The Book Book you will learn: * How to write clearly and concisely * What kinds and sizes of type are expected in books * How to use typography and design to enhance the appearance of your book and make it shout professional from the very first page * How many pages your book should have * How to set up a book in signatures * What the margins should measure * What binding is ideal for your book * How to design an irresistible cover * How to scan art into your book * Understanding color separations and using color to your advantage * What kind of paper to use for your book

About the Author:

Lily Splane began her writing career when she was 15, with a series of articles on donkey care and training for the international Journal of The American Donkey and Mule Society (also known as Mr. Longears, or The Brayer). Today, she owns a publishing company that not only publishes her own works, but the works of other exceptional authors. Her passions include quantum cosmology, particle physics, philosophy, biochemistry, nutrition, physiology, oil and digital painting, belly dance, world music, and music composition. Anaphase II Publishing released its first title in 1988, with Nutritional Self-Defense, written by founder Lily Splane. The publishing company survived two transfers of ownership throughout the years, but is now back in the capable hands of its founder. Anaphase II Publishing, now an imprint of Cyberlepsy Media, publishes exceptional, authoritative books in the sciences (with lay readers as the target audience) including nutrition, the philosophical implications of quantum cosmology, and human behavior. Other areas include how-to books on writing and book typesetting and design, as well as science fiction and speculative fiction. Cyberlepsy Media also publishes music and music instruction CDs, as well as music instruction DVDs. Future projects include the music and a forthcoming book on the doumbek (Mid-East drum) by new author/composer, San Diego’s beloved percussionist and sound engineer Richard Adrian Steiger. Lily Splane has been writing, editing, typesetting, and designing books for self-publishers, college professors, and small presses for more than thirty years. She has written several magazine articles, and is author of eight books. Lily holds a master’s degree in nutritional science, a Doctor of Divinity degree, and is currently studying cognitive psychology. She lives in San Diego, California.
