Reply Thank you I appreciate your existence on YouTube! I have a question: does the formatting depend on the genre? Are there specific measures for each to follow? Reply Thank you. This helps a lot. Reply The two title pages concept is kind of strange. Reply My five nights at freddys the silver eyes book doesn't have a copyright page or a title page, it just starts at chapter one, of course it has a book cover, its the 2015 book Reply thanks for the tutorial, btw you remind me of Alyson Hannigan… Reply I am wanting to use Cava for making my ebooks. I appreciate your video. Reply Thank you so much. Where do I get ISBN numbers for my self published books? Reply Do you mind me asking what font size is your title page? Reply 1:13 I don't have a middle name Reply Thank you for sharing this video. Can I please ask is there any procedure needed to do to use the fonts in Microsoft Word? Thz. Reply Thank you for this. For some reason this is the most stressful page to write lol. Reply Which ISBN do you register your book with on Create Space: the 10 or the 13? Reply who is you publusher? o your editorial? Reply So on the website to electronically add it, i saw u can do a preregistration buts its like 140 and idk if that includes the actual price to register it which i found was 35. So did u get the copyright done before u submitted to Createspace? Like get all the ISBN and copyright done before Createspace will take it? Reply great tips thanks! Reply I feel strangely attracted to you when I listen to your voice Reply Uh…did you just added that copyright page before you published on createspace? I mean…before you export your document file into PDF, did you write the copyright page along with two different ISBN? And where's the circle c? I can't find any if I have to insert that copyright page all on my own….the only thing I find is…[email protected] and not C. Reply ill try to reuploadd my deleted video Reply Thank you! Reply You could also include the following text on the Title & Copyright Page: “By purchasing an authorized version of this book, you are supporting and encouraging Mandi Lynn and other authors to continue to engage readers with their stories. Thank you.” Below, an alternative “thank you for purchasing this book” language is sourced from http://www.penguin.com/ajax/books/excerpt/9780399174230: “Penguin supports copyright. Copyright fuels creativity, encourages diverse voices, promotes free speech, and creates a vibrant culture. Thank you for buying an authorized edition of this book and for complying with copyright laws by not reproducing, scanning, or distributing any part of it in any form without permission. You are supporting writers and allowing Penguin to continue to publish books for every reader.” At approx. the 1:00 mark, Mandi states that you need to include your LEGAL name on your copyright page. That’s not correct. You can identify your authorship with any name, including a nick-name or a pseudonym. Just choose a name that most people identify with you. Here’s what the US Copyright Office says about using given names: (http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-register.html#realname): Question: Do I have to use my real name on the form? Can I use a stage name or a pen name? Answer: There is no legal requirement that the author be identified by his or her real name on the application form… http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl101.pdf If you have a common name, you could include a middle name or initial to help distinguish your authorships fromcompeting writers who share the same name. If your matter went to court, it wouldn’t matter if you didn’t include your real name. Many well-known authors use alias or nicknames. I’m going to post some information on copyright and its registration process on Mandi’s other YouTube link page (YA Ink- Copyright): https://youtu.be/vzuNqoJRbuM Reply Thank you so much this helped alot becuase i was really clueless Reply Hello, I just wrote a book and I want to make it an e-book. I really want to just see how people would like it and how it would go. I didn't really want to have to go through the whole copyright process, but should I? Is there a easier or cheaper way to do it? Reply If I self-publish and use a pen name can I list the copyright as my publishing company or my pen name? I don't want my real name anywhere on this thing. Reply How do you make books. The pages in general. THank you Reply Thanks so much! Reply How do you make your book covers? Do you have someone take your pics (professionally) for the cover and then upload them to create space? Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
