Self-publishing Handbook: The Production DepartmentIn this section of the series the production of a book will be covered. Therefore, I will talk about the various tasks, which would usually be done by the production department of a publishing house. Some of the blogs will apply to e-books and printed ones, while there will also be articles focusing on each of these two options separately.

The first big topic will be about designing the cover and hiring a cover artist. Then there will be articles about the book jacket, which you will need for printed books. Afterwards I will talk about the inside of the book, writing articles about what pages you need other than the actual story. Finally, there will be a section on formatting, going into detail on e-books as well as printed books.
