Books about self-publishing by Chris McMullen:

A Detailed Guide to Self-Publishing with Amazon, Volume 1.
The author recommends this book to most authors (though beginners may prefer to begin with the how-to guide), or the boxed set (which is the best value). This book is the author's most detailed guide. This volume focuses on formatting the interior, designing a cover, and step-by-step instructions for how to publish. Formatting focuses on Microsoft Word 2010, including many tips to format the paperback and e-book. Discusses many important decisions authors must make, like setting the price and the pros/cons of enrolling in KDP Select. Covers both paperback and e-book formatting.

A Detailed Guide to Self-Publishing with Amazon, Volume 2.
A continuation of the first volume. This volume focuses on editing, cover design considerations, setting up author pages, helpful info about Amazon, and a detailed introduction to marketing. Includes numerous tips to perfect the formatting, cover design, marketing, and more. Discusses many popular topics, like reviews, rank, creating buzz, building a following, and more. Several authors have expressed that this book is easily worth it for the very detailed chapter on marketing.

How to Self-Publish a Book on Amazon.com.
This guide is not as detailed, but covers a wide range of introductory topics. Includes chapters on pre-publishing (like writing, editing, research, and developing the concept) in addition to publishing (formatting, conversion to PDF, publishing, and marketing). Updated in 2014 to provide more formatting and marketing depth. Includes popular topics like formatting page numbers, Kindle formatting, and conversion to PDF.

Formatting Pages for Publishing on Amazon with CreateSpace.
Shows you how to format a Word document for publishing with CreateSpace. Includes page numbering, headers, drop caps, widows, and more. Discusses many formatting details, like tips for better justification and how to prepare a file with bleed.
