This video is a basic rundown of some things to know when formatting a manuscript for self publishing.

I am a self-published author, and have been working in the publishing industry for the past five years. This video is just a few little tips I’ve picked up while in college and in the field.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the header and footer with Windows Microsoft Word? I don't have a "format" tab or "document" tab that I can see on my version, and every time I try to put the header and footer at zero the text just disappears. :/

I find that the video was very straight to the point, with detailed information that was really what I was searching for. I maybe able to write my book for self publishing. I am so happy to have a video to learn from. The easy of the words used made the commentary seem easy. The accent made me feel so welcoming. Thank you so much. Now I am considering reading your books.

Thanks for making this tutorial. I've searched for a long time for a video like this, that clearly explains how to format the pages. I have a book that I wrote by hand in late 2015, and today I feel more confident that I'll be a be able to have it published.

First thing- are we related? XD. Anyways, I'm trying to get rid of the headers and page numbers from my front page, copyright, table of contents, but I cant seem to do so. Also, what line spacing did you use to print your book? Im in the processing of re-editng my book, but I can't seem to figure out what I should use.
