What size do I choose for my book?

Most of our authors choose to print their books as paperback books. This means the book is black & white on the inside, with a color cover. The difference between a hardcover book and a paperback book is the thickness of the book cover. Hardcover books are more ‘solid’ and have thick cardboard as a cover. Paperback books are printed with a flexible cover.

You have a choice of sizes to choose from, although we recommend 6″ x 9″ for most books. From our experience this size is available in all markets and gives a great end result:
