Hello Everyone,

 

I recently finished my first novel using Storyist for Mac. I have decided to self-publish using Amazon CreateSpace (I realize that Storyist isn't ideal for self-publishing). 

 

The problem is that I must now insert a title page, copyright page, and a dedication page into my finished manuscript. I can't figure out how to place the three new pages into the same file (ahead of all the body text) without messing up the formatting. 

 

I tried saving the title/copyright/dedication as separate files, but CreateSpace requires everything to be submitted in a single file.

 

Please help.

Hi Membarock,

 

If you're creating a PDF, the easiest thing to do would be to save your manuscript, title page, and copyright page as PDF files and then use the  Preview app to assemble them into a single document.

 

You could also paste the title page and dedication text into your manuscript and apply the appropriate styles. You'd need to adjust the page numbering too.
