Hi everyone, I'm new to the group

Can anyone give me ideas about paperback, I have very little knowledge about it. I wonder if I was to upload my manuscript, and later I wish to edit some work, will I be able to do so since it is in book form? As with kindle ebook, we able to do at any time.   Please help....!

Thank you

You can upload a new/edited version of your manuscript at any time, even if you have prematurely pushed the publish button. Simply resubmit your new manuscript for review. That is the beauty of POD (Print on Demand), it is not cast in stone. The books are only printed once ordered, by you or by customers.

Only if you pay them to edit your book. You are responsible for the content so it's up to you to ensure the manuscript is error-free.

CS is great for you in many ways.  If you're at the editing stage, nothing beats having your book printed on paper . . .studies have shown that we read with better comprehension  from paper compared with monitors.   You could have 1-5 proof copies printed, bound, and trimmed for less than you could get copies made at Kinko's.  Great for having several people read and edit your book.  No formatting, nuttin' . . . 8.5 x 11, as is there is probably nothing you would have to do to meet CS's PDF Submission Specifications.


When you get to formatting, the books around you are models.  I have quite a few free PDFs on my Free Page that are geared to helping in formatting, etc.
