Publish Your Family History
Many people want to write a family history, but few ever take on the job of publishing one. If youâ€™ve done the research, and you want to make a book from it, then Publish Your Family History is for you. It will tell you all the fundamentals of book production, together with the important details that distinguish a home-published book from a homemade one. Youâ€™ll learn:
- how to get your manuscript ready for production;
- design ideas for the pages and the cover;
- methods of making pages with or without a computer and printing those pages quickly and inexpensively; and
- ideas on bindings that last and look great.
Even if time is at a premium, youâ€™re not comfortable with computer technology, or the budget is tight, youâ€™ll learn how to publish a professional-looking family history of your own!
This book has helpful information for anyone interested in producing a book. Don't feel you have to research your roots before you start reading this; it can help you get into print no matter what your topic might be.
