As a self-publisher, you have full freedom of your own artistic expressions when laying out the interior of your book.
And with a word processing program, you can transform your manuscript into a professional book design.
The front cover of the book is a critical design element.
A book cover must include the title of the book, the author's name, and any design elements that will catch the reader's eye.
The spine of the book traditionally includes the title of the book and the author's name on it.
The back cover often has the author's biography, the book's ISBN number, and some testimonials about the book.
