April 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

Book Formatting is important especially when you are self-publishing. This requires you to do all the work by yourself. With the traditional publishing process, you have editors and publishers who will edit and check your manuscript. This isn't the case with self-publishing.

Self-publishing is the quicker way to sell books, since you don't need to go through the long process of being approved by any publisher. However, you'll need to work on your own when you choose to self-publish.

Finding a book formatting template is important in working on your book. This serves as a guide. The formatting template helps you in organizing your contents properly and making them readable.

There are a wide variety of templates that suit your style and genre. These templates include the font types and sizes, margins, headings, line spaces and other components that make up the content of your work.

This will help you save a great number of time as it can take you from creating the front cover to the back cover of your book. You no longer have to worry about formatting concerns and you'll be saving yourself from issues with formatting when you are starting it out right. It will save you from pricey errors.

There are plenty of formatting templates that you can get free of charge in the internet. When you're searching for a book formatting template, you should choose one in accordance with the file format of your final output and the kind of novel that you are making. This also depends whether you would like to distribute your book as paperback or an eBook. You may also need to include drawings, photos or quotations that you would like in the pages. These may affect the size as well as the output of the book.

If you're making a book for children, choose templates which have smaller sizes with lots of images. Should you be writing a book or novel for adults, you may want to go for more professional looking template. It all depends on the theme that you're making. You can go for fun and unique templates, particularly when you're making a casual book. If you're making a non-fiction, it would be inappropriate to use basic formatting templates.

Apart from using book formatting templates, you can also use book formatting programs and software in creating your book. Ensure that you can use your template in the program or software that you will be using.
