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

Francisco

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)
