Episode 88: What About The Inside of My Book?

Many writers don’t think about the interior formatting of their book! Today I asked the amazing designer and published author, Melisa Graham, to give us the nitty gritty on all the things you need to consider for the inside of your book.

We discussed what Melisa considers the top 4 elements involved when formatting the beautiful pages of your book:

  1. Your readers’ expectations based on the genre, your previous work, etc.
  2. Your desires for your readers’ experience as they read your book
  3. The cover and fulfilling the expectations it creates
  4. The technical stuff like licensing high-resolution images, your printer’s specifications, etc.

Whether you are DIY publishing or getting support, you’ll want to know all of these!
