Skillshare – Fiction Book Layout Using Adobe Indesign – Complete Guide
Genre: eLearning | Language: English
Do you need to make a layout for a fiction book for professional publication? Perhaps you are an author and want to learn how the book layout process works so you can make your own PDF. This course is for you! Most other Indesign courses teach lots of extra material that won’t help you. This course is specifically targeted to people who want to learn fiction and textbook layout without all the fluff.
This course will save you from wasting $100’s if not $1,000’s of your hard-earned money. Many “pro” book layout designers learn from YouTube as they go, wasting your money when you pay them. Other Adobe Indesign contractors charge insane amounts of money. That’s why I made this course. It’s for people who want to learn fiction book layout or need to do the job themselves.
Bethany: “What you just taught me almost made me cry. Before your class, my boss made me change the font in our company book twice. It took me a week. With what you showed me, I could’ve been literally done in a minute. One week cut down to one minute. I hope others find your course.” Bethany R., Outdoor Medical Training School
This course helps you avoid these mistakes:
- Creating text that’s incorrectly spaced out and looks weird
- Justified text that still looks jagged – pro tips
- Overload of hyphen breaks
- Orphans and widows – random text starting a page
Wrong hyphens – you probably used the wrong hyphens
It’s so easy to make mistakes and not see them during book layout. Aaron has seen books with beautiful covers but the inside looked like a hack job. Trying to do a book layout in Microsoft Word will make your book look terrible. Word just doesn’t have the right tools.
