Book Designing Check and Correct List For your Book's Front
and Back Matter:
1. Put book cover in 4-color design as first page. Rather
than do it yourself, hire a competent cover designer. For
business books, check out MaxCovers.com. He designed three
I also recommend George Foster at www.Fostercovers.com.
2. Create a title page after the cover with your publishing
information, and copyright.
3. Make an extra testimonial page to insert right before
your table of contents. Testimonials from the rich and
famous, media, man/woman on the street, and happy readers
convince others you have something good to offer by their
endorsement. This can make your book a top seller.
4. Include a list of your other books right before the table
of contents to widen sales.
5. Create a table of contents (your chapter titles) and
place below it your complimentary free bonus report title(s)
and where to find them. When you offer bonus reports, your
audience sees this as added value. Some buy your book
because they want a particular report.
6. Put your one page sparkling "mini sales letter"
introduction right after the table of contents. This is the
number three "Essential Hot Selling-Point" that makes your
customer take out his or her credit card to buy.
7. Redesign of all fonts so your book will be easy to read.
Easy to read books are the number one way to sell more
books. Use fonts such as Arial and other sans serif fonts
for the headings and Times Roman and other serif fonts for
8. Put in proper headings at the top and bottom of each
page in the headers and footers. Put the title and page
number at the top, and your name and Web site URL at the
bottom. For your electronic version, this shows who the
author and expert is.
9. Put the whole book in Portable Document Format PDF as
well as Microsoft Word. You can edit the Word copy, and
allow your customers to download the PDF file unless your
offer your book via toll-free number. While PDF is not
foolproof safe, it's a common form and if passed on doesn't
allow the person to edit it.
10. List your products and prices at the end of the book
along with a page on your coaching, speaking, or other
services. You may want to add benefit-driven annotated table
of contents for your other books at the end too.
When you include all these parts in your book, your
increased new sales will surprise you.
