For aspiring authors, platforms like Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing have made the process more accessible than ever before. However, beginners still need to grasp the fundamental principles of sizing and formatting in order to produce a visually appealing piece. The new guide from J.J. Fast Publishing simplifies many of these questions, allowing authors to create a work in as little as 48 hours.

Kindle Direct Publishing’s children’s book segment, known as KDP Kids, provides a number of useful tools to assist with the creation of new print books and ebooks. Understanding how these tools work, and the limitations, will help authors put together new pieces more efficiently.

A good example is the concept of ‘bleed’. As the new guide explains, bleed is a printing term that relates to margins around the edge of a page. KDP uses a margin of shift of 1/8 inch, meaning that any image or color that extends to the edge of a page should be extended beyond the edge by 1/8 inch. Authors are advised that the printing process will trim some of this material off, so bleed is required to achieve a visually satisfying appearance.

All aspects of creating a new children’s book are covered in the new guide, from idea generation to marketing. On the latter, J.J. Fast Publishing offers some unique methods that the company states can double monthly sales.
