Using Create Space
I have been working on a book for children that includes my articles I've published in Two-Lane Livin' magazine.
I am separating it by months instead of chapters.
Each month starts with a poem and has articles, easy recipes and crafts and sometimes a story, depending on what I had written about that particular month.
It is coming right along. I want to publish it with Create Space. At the moment Create Space is very confusing to me. I am hoping to figure it all out.
I am including clip art and I finally figured out how to make all the clip art be 300 DPI, which is what they want for all pics. That is one obstacle out of the way!
I downloaded Gimp, which is free. I went to this short tutorial on You Tube and found out how to convert pictures to 300 DPI. It is very easy! If I can figure it out, anyone can.
Have any of you used Create Space to publish your manuscripts?
Thanks for any input, suggestions or helpful hints on using their site.
