    Course Description:

    CreateSpace is Amazon’s print on demand company, the best place in the world to self publish paperback books. Microsoft Word documents (.doc and .docx) can easily be formatted for CreateSpace because it’s the world’s most popular writing program.

    • you save time & money
    • you can make changes whenever you want
    • you make the reader’s experience better

    The course walks you through it from first page to last. Install great fonts, handle front matter, use section breaks, insert page numbers, images, everything a reader expects. Get detailed instruction with an actual MS Word document and upload it to the online previewer at CreateSpace.

    Also get 2 FREE TEMPLATES that come with the course as examples, templates you can use for your books.

    The course is taught by Jason Matthews, bestselling author and self-publishing expert.

    In less than two hours, you’ll be able to professionally format your paperbacks and give readers something they truly enjoy.
