What Else Goes Inside of Your Book?

Aside from the story itself, here are a few additional suggestions you will want to consider adding inside of your book.

Title Page

It’s always nice to see a clean title page when you open a book.

Copyright Page

This is where you can include your ISBN information, CIP data,  publisher/contact information, and a statement very similar to the following:

“All rights reserved–no part of this book may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including photocopying, or by any information storage or retrieval system except for the inclusion of brief quotations in a review, without permission in writing from the publisher.”

Table of Contents Page 

Allow your reader to find Chapters and References quickly and easily. This is good for when a reader loses their page but remembers where they were in the book by the name of the chapter.

Dedication Page 

A special gesture to someone/something of importance to you the author. Perhaps someone inspired your story, or maybe someone believed in you when everyone else told you writing a book might not be the best idea.

Acknowledgments Page 

A perfect opportunity to thank all the people that helped bring your book to life. Writing a book often takes more than one person when you look at aspects such as editing, illustrations, and promotional efforts.

About the Author Page 

Let the reader know a bit more about who you are and your background. And of course, any upcoming book projects you may be working on. Having this can help a reader feel more connected to the author and consequently, their story as they are reading.

While you don’t need to incorporate all of these suggestions, if you do choose to add them to the inside of your book, it will result in a more complete look.

If you have any questions, let us know.

Happy Writing!!
