You’re finally done writing your children’s book, and your illustrations are ready. Bleed, no bleed, standard color vs. premium color, single images or double-page spreads – is your head spinning yet?
You wish to publish to KDP, but you don’t know how to start? LET ME HELP! I’ve been publishing to KDP for over 15 years. I offer one-on-one consultation, formatting with professional InDesign software and use Adobe Photoshop for all my book cover designs.
INCLUDED WITH THIS GIG – KDP Upload Training! Don’t go through the hassle of trying to figure out and navigate the KDP dashboard on your own – I offer a one-on-one, 1-hour video conference with screen share where we navigate the dashboard together, upload your files, fill in the meta data and publish your book. My most popular training course with questions answered without the headaches or hassle, so you can get started on your publishing journey today!
UPDATE: Starting May 1, 2023 – IngramSpark will no longer charge their $49 set-up fee! Upload your KDP files to IngramSpark for FREE!
