Self-Publishing: ISBNs, Trim Size

Do you have your EIN yet?

Next step on my CreateSpace Dashboard: Establishing an ISBN.

CreateSpace will create one for you, for FREE. However, this ISBN can only be used on the CreateSpace publishing platform, which is OK by me, since I want to distribute through


I’m choosing the most popular trim size and full-color (it’s a children’s book, afterall) and white pages (cream is not an option anyway).


The next step (uploading book file) will have to wait until this weekend. I have not laid my book out yet. I’m preparing myself for a slow and (most likely) frustrating process as my scanner is slow.


Are you doing this with me? Let’s git ‘er done!
