I am a professional book formatter and self-publishing author. As a professional book formatter, I help authors prepare their books for publishing. I format all types of books including, ebooks, print books, cookbooks, children's print books, and photo books. I also format ebooks and print books with footnotes and endnotes in them. I will soon be adding fixed layout design ebooks to that list as well.
I am a level 2 seller on Fiverr.com where I format books for self-publishing authors. You can find my gigs here: https://www.fiverr.com/donnajenou.
As a self-publishing author, I publish books under several pen names. Many of the books that I write are "how to" books on self-publishing, book formatting and variety of other topics.
I spend a lot of time continuing to educate myself in the ever-changing world of self-publishing so I can serve my customers better. For my initial education, I studied at the Art Institute at Pittsburgh Online for a bachelor's degree in Interactive Media.
As a side project, I also own a premade book cover store called TheBookDesigner in which I have created all of the book covers myself. You can find that here: http://thebookdesigner.co.
In this book, you will find the basic requirements for all of the major retailers and distributors that sell and distribute ebooks and print books for self-publishing authors. You will also find some other aspects of what they offer along with some tips from me.
This book is a second edition. I rewrote it to include a couple of new distributors. IngramSpark and Lulu.
