    I have pages of words and I want to publish a book out of those pages. I don’t know how to start. First of all I would like to protect my creation. What are the first steps. Thank you

      Eunice,

      The great news is that protecting your work is actually pretty easy. While you can file a formal copyright protection, you really don’t have to. Just put the copyright notice at the front of your book.

      Now with the pages of words that you have, I don’t know how well organized they are. If they aren’t already in good order, I would create an outline — either in a document or using index cards to help you organize your content, and then put it together from there. You do want to make sure that it all flows together well, and it pays to have it proofread and edited if needed. If you can’t afford to hire a proofreader/editor, at the very least have a friend of family member proofread it for you. Another thing to try once you have the final draft done is to read it out loud. When reading out loud, you’ll be more likely to find mistakes or awkwardly worded sentences that you didn’t notice earlier.

      Hope that helps!

    I am a frustrated writer who needs technical help to upload my Kindle novel. My novel is complete, and has been proofread and critiqued. It is in manuscript format and I need to have it converted and uploaded for Amazon Kindle. I am not computer/software savy and need someone to personally convert it to HML, or whatever else is required. I need one on one technical help. Please help. Thank you.

      Roy, my apologies for the delayed response. Your comment ended up in my spam folder and I just now found it.

I do provide Kindle formatting services and can definitely help you out with getting your novel formatted and on Amazon. Here’s where you can find info on what I do: Hope you find that helpful!
