I want to ask a few questions:
If someone is thinking about writing a book, what is the first thing they should do?
How should they go about getting their book distributed?
If they are readying the book for print by their self, what applications are recommended?
If you guessed that the "someone" was me, you guessed right. I was thinking about using MS Office Publisher, but I do not own it, and Word can't figure out "Oh, he wants to fold the page in half, so I should put page one here, page two on this other sheet...." Of course, if I simply let someone else (i.e. a publisher) do final designs for me, I'd not have to worry about it, but I do not want to do that. I was thinking about distributing it myself, mostly online on places like Amazon and physically to people I know, but I don't know how to copyright protect my work.
