There is no easy way. The colours on the screen will never be as the colours
on print even with a screen calibration (but it would help if you can calibrate
the screen with the printer). I normally deal with the publisher or the
printer directly. You can ask for a recommended colour palet. That can help.
You can also add a cd to the book with colour images.
