Amazon Paperbacks

If you publish an eBook using Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), it prompts you to create a paperback version of your eBook via KDP (as opposed to Create Space, which is also owned by Amazon). After updating Crimson & Cream to a new version, on a whim, I continued the process of setting up a paperback through KDP. I had never used Create Space, so this was my first attempt at creating a paperback myself.

My first run through the process found several formatting issues I needed to address to convert my eBook manuscript to paperback. In retrospect, I recommend downloading an Amazon paperback template prior to formatting your document. Even if you don't paste your novel into the template, the 'Template with Sample Content' is a great resource to use as a reference when formatting your novel for print.

I found the official Amazon help pages somewhat hard to find, so if you're having the same problem, make sure you check out these official links:

The descriptive writing captivated me, and as each chapter came to a close, I found myself wrapped up in the story and not wanting to put it down. Warlock & Wyrm took everything from the first two books, and added to the character's depth. The story line was well-developed throughout, and filled with descriptions and details that made me feel like I was inside of the Oxbow Kingdom. I could feel the emotions and empathise with the characters. I loved thi…
