How To Self Publish On Amazon CreateSpace

howtoselfpublishonamazonSo you have decided to write a book and now you want to get it published.  You ask, “How to Format For Amazon’s CreateSpace?”


You can go the standard route by searching for an agent and/or a publishing house that will accept your book; or not.  They may want rewrite after rewrite which entirely destroys your vision of the main plot of your story or you can go through the self publishing route.


If you look online, there are many, many people who will do this for you, including Amazon for a hefty price, ranging from $199.00 to $249.00 and up. As a new writer, “Who has that type of money?” I know I didn’t have it.

Another alternative is to self publish your book. Now for a lot of people that would not be much of a problem if you are proficient in working with computers and pick up on new things easy but for others, this would put the publishing of your book at another dead end. You just don’t have the time or the expertise to publish the book yourself.


That is where I come in and I can help you get your book published in one of two ways. My short segment videos are created with YOU in mind.


I will walk you through the steps one by one, including giving you a free 6×9 template to use for your first paperback book on Amazon’s CreateSpace




I can format and publish your book for you at a much lower price than most offers you will find online.


The reason I am doing this, is because I’ve been there with my book written and not knowing where to go from there and at one time I almost gave up completely.


The difference is that I am pretty good with computers, so I taught myself how to do my own self publishing and I can do the same for you.


If you are too busy, I can also format and publish for you. Contact me at email: for a price quote on formatting and publishing your book.
