ANNOUCEMENT: CreateSpace has been merged into the KDP/Kindle platform, so I have created a new video on uploading your PDF Cover and Interior book files to KDP.Amazon. The video is located in the InDesign area and works for both InDesign and PowerPoint files.

Above, I have just added 3 new sizes, book and cover, PowerPoint and Indesign templates for journals. The templates include ready to publish 140 page journals plus a matching cover. Just open the templates, customize as you want, add art or illustrations and you are ready to publish your journal.

This course takes you through the process from start to finish. I will show you how to set the book up, build your template, add images and make your cover. Once complete we will load it up to CreateSpace/Amazon and you can sell your book. Join me and learn how to make your own book.

We had a great interview with Andy Falco-Jimenez about making journals using the new Easy Journal templates.

"This is awesome! So with your template it took me a total of about 2 hrs to go from zero to completed journal uploaded to Amazon/CreateSpace with cover being done... while watching, kids, hockey and world series.Waiting for final approval from Createspace. With no distractions it would have been less. And that is because this was a brand new journal that I had to write all the text from scratch." – Andy Falco-Jimenez

New Trainings to go along with our NEW

Journal books are notebooks or blank books, what we used to call diaries, we now call them journal books. They’re books where you can record your thoughts, writings, track information, and all kinds of stuff. There’s a wide variety of different kinds of books that you can make, including: basic journals, address books, gratitude book, prayer journals, baby books, wedding and bridal books, guest books, happiness and meditation journals. We can also create planners, recipe books, sketchbooks, travel journals, exercise and medical recording books.

Congratulations to Yael and her Udderly Fantastic Goat Journals

Congratulations Becky on Your New Journal

So, after having Bruce Jones as a guest presenter in my Journey to Authorship class, on how to create a journal/devotional/coloring book...I put together what I wanted and had my cousin put it together after she attended the class. Well, she finished it, and together I walked her through how to upload it to CreateSpace to be available on Well...we did that last night... today she already has it in her hot little hands! Me? I ordered copies to give to my BNI (Business Networking International) group. Because I ordered enough for my own chapter, I'm told it will be here in 3 weeks! Talk about exciting! This journal is a tracking system for people who use networking to grow their businesses and is available on Amazon...ALREADY! Becky Norwood of Spotlight on Busines

Honestly Bruce, this is a really great program!

I wasn't expecting much for $100, but as usual, you under promised and over delivered by at least 10X!
As an author of two other books, this could have save me a least 50 hours of my time!

Thank you Howard Hale, Hale

Customer Testimonial

Thank you very much.
I am a self published author with CreateSpace already but in the juvenile fantasy genre. I was looking for something with more earning potential to fill my starving author pockets. Putting together a journal sounded like a great idea, but I had no idea what I was doing. I was about to give up on this idea when I stumbled across your course. Thank goodness!!! I was trying to do the interior pages in Microsoft Word. It was driving me crazy. You just sneeze at the keyboard and everything moves.
I have gone through a number of your videos already and have my interior all done with Power Point. Now I'll do the cover and I'm ready to submit. It's called 'My Fur Baby's First Experiences and Beyond' and geared toward new dog owners.

I can't thank you enough. Have an awesome day.

Kind regards
