Affinity Publisher for Fiction Layouts
What you'll learn
- Create A Fiction Layout For A Novel From Start To Finish
- Use Master Pages To Simplify Book Creation
- Leverage Text Styles to Save Time and Ensure Consistency
- Insert Basic Images To Add a Little Extra Special Touch
- You should have access to Affinity Publisher to best experience this course and ideally have a title that's ready to be formatted as a print title.
If you're like most smaller publishers you probably focus most of your efforts on selling ebooks and use either Word or a tool like Vellum for print formatting. But if you're ready to take more control over your print layouts, then Affinity Publisher is one of the best tools out there for doing so. It's a one-time fee and gives you all of the flexibility of a full book formatting software.
In this video course we will walk through how to create a basic novel in Affinity Publisher by leveraging master pages and text styles. The novel we'll create includes the use of a small accent image on the title page, also by page, and chapter starts to add that little something extra.
By the time you're done with this course you will have created and formatted an entire novel and have a file that you can start from for all future projects.
While this course is geared towards fiction layouts, the information we'll cover here can also be used for basic non-fiction layouts. This course is a precursor to Affinity Publisher for Non-Fiction which covers more advanced topics like tables of contents, indexes, how to merge multiple documents to create a collection, and more. But for print formatting, this is the course to start with.
Who this course is for:
- Self-Publishers or Small Publishers
- Users of Affinity Publisher
