Frequently Asked Questions

Is this bundle for me?

Do you want to control the design of your print book? Are you technically inclined? Are you detail oriented? Then this bundle is for YOU.

How much Word knowledge do I need before I start the course?
Basic Word skills are all that are needed. Open a file, type some text, save and close a file, click on a tab, scroll up and down; that's all you need.
I've used Word for years. What new things will I learn?
That depends. Do you use Styles? Can you re-organize your scenes in the Navigation Pane? Have you fine-tuned your autoformat and autocorrect settings for fiction writing? Have you nailed Track Changes? Do you know the layout differences between and an ebook and a print book? Can you tell if a print book has been formatted correctly? If you answered Yes to every question, you don't need this course. Go forth and prosper, my friend. If you answered No to these questions, you will benefit BIG TIME from this course! Whatever you replied, share your find with a fiction writer!
Which version of Word do I need for this course? Can I do it on my Mac?
You'll need Word for Windows 2007 or later, or Word for Mac 2010 or later, on your desktop, laptop, or tablet. If you have Word 2016 for Mac, you’ll have little problem translating the instructions. Earlier versions of Word for Mac may have different starting clicks, but once into the sequence, there’s little difference. Please visit the Microsoft Support website for more information.
