Tips on typesetting: getting your book ready for self-publishing, part six

Sometimes it makes sense to reinvent the wheel. Whoever created the tire did a great job of this. Imagine how much more time it would take to get anywhere if our cars used wagon wheels.

But other times, you find something that’s come before that is just so perfect that you can’t imagine changing anything about it. And so today we’re doing something a little unorthodox: We’re bringing you our tips on typesetting via another blog. Chris Bell of Atthis Arts did the typesetting for Katie Cross’s Antebellum Awakening, and I think we can all agree that he did a fabulous job. A few weeks back, he did a guest post on Katie’s website, called “How to Typeset Your Self Published Book Like a Pro.”

I had planned to interview a few typesetters to compile some tips for our readers, but when I read Chris’s post, I knew that I had to bring you expertise straight from the source. So today, instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, we’re sending you to “How to Typeset Your Self Published Book Like a Pro” on Katie’s blog. And while we’re at it, if you’re in the market for a typesetter, Chris is a great choice!
