BOOK DESIGN: How to determine the Best Size for Your Book.

“What size do I make my book?” I get asked this question a lot. Usually the book size depends on the type of book you are writing, not just non-fiction or fiction but subject matter and distribution takes play in your decision as well… and there are exceptions to the rule for those rare few authors who want a more unique looking book. Finding the time to research your market and get info from others can help you determine the best way to go. I offer consulting sessions for self publishing authors with topics of discussion on; book size, promotion, branding and marketing and answer the important questions you might have.
