  1. Printer – Use a printer to print the book. If you plan to use colors or images on the inside then it will cost more. You can also choose a four colour cover design for instance or a black and white one. For binding you can choose from these options: perfect bound, saddle stitch, ringed or hard cover. For packaging you can have it with a CD if preferred. You can also ship it but it is expensive.
  2. Proofreading
  3. Editing
  4. Designing or formatting of the interiors of the book.
  5. Cover design – You can include a photo for non-fiction books. It gives credibility and lets people know how you look like and how they can connect with you. Keep your cover design simple and eye-catching. You can also use the services of a designer.
  6. Title – A title and a subtitle is mandatory. For example if you choose to have “winning in life now” as your book title, you may use a sub-title like “how to break through to a more contented self”.
