Download My Free Book Formatting Guide

I created a book formatting guide for Ingram and you can get it for free. I've used Ingram to distribute my books since 1994. Way back, I used their Lightning Source service to distribute my books. It's a complex system for publishing companies, and though it's still in use, they recommend self-publishers and consultants and small publishers use IngramSpark.

You get the same great distribution whatever Ingram tool you use. Read my blog post on Distribution: How Your Book Gets To Your Readers to learn more.

What you'll learn in this guide

You'll learn about the various formats and how to create them: 

  • PDF for Paperback and Hardcover Books
  • EPUB for Ebooks
  • MOBI for Kindle
  • Fixed Layout Ebook Formatting
