Self-Publishing: Formatting Your Pages

It’s a Saturday night. Hubby’s watching TV, girls are on their phones and I’m at my desk again.

Tonight, I’m starting the process that stopped me before: formatting my pages! I got overwhelmed in March. I’m determined to see this through! So here goes.


CreateSpace has a template you can use in Word! How easy is that? The first is the interior cover page and then a dedication:


…a blank page follows that and then the Table of Contents.

Note: I started this whole process with and I enrolled in the “Self Publish Your Children’s Book” course given by Tim Johnson. He has a very warm, enthusiastic manner and makes the process less intimidating. Check him out!  I got 62% of the way through. I will be completing that course in tandem with the website going forward.

I’m going to upload my content and update my blog tomorrow.

And to all….a good night!
