What you'll do

I will meet with the AirBnb guest at Tinoni restaurant in Carcavelos, where I live. Here, the guest will talk to me about his personal experience as the author of a book he intends to publish, without having a clear idea of ​​how he will achieve this dream.

Then we go to my studio and I will explain to you in my laptop how to solve this problem, with solutions mostly free and that will allow you:

. Edit the contents of the book in Microsof Word
. Transform into PDF file
. Prepare texts and tags for the online process
. Prepare the cover image in Paint.net
. All running of 3 essential platforms: Lulu / Amazon Kindle / Draft2Digital
Other things to note
This area has many parking spots 100% free and is an area with no security issues.

The Tinoni restaurant is extremely nice.

From there to my studio are about 300 meters.

Meet your host, Francisco

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
I have a degree in sociology and I am a writer, myself: I have written more than a dozen books in the POD - Print on Demand system, a method used for printing small quantities of books, process which is even used by the giant Amazon.

In fact, one of the books I created describes the whole process of self-publishing of books by anyone.

Nowadays there are no longer excuses for not having your book published: if publishers refuse your manuscript (which is often), and your willingness to see it published remains strong, this is a simple online process and each more widespread among beginner writers.

( Includes creation of eBook and Paperback - book in physical format)
