I am a casual TeX user. Mostly I have used it to type up some reports/homeworks for class in my graduate engineering work. In the past I have used document type "article". And then kept all the defaults.
I need to self publish something online. At the highest level I would like to know: How do you setup a TeX document to self publish a book online?
Some more low level questions:
- Is there a document type for "book" and what is it's name?
- I am looking at Amazon Createspace. Amazon Createspace's requirements are: filetype=pdf, trim size, margins (gutter and outside margins). All of these various trim size, margins gutter/outside can be adjusted in the Tex document?
- Has anyone seen any good TeX templates for Amazon Createspace?
- If you could demonstrate how to tweak a specific "book" document type that would be very helpful also.
Other than the above questions, please feel free to offer any other sort of help since I am completely new to this process (advice, links to good tutorials, links to wikibooks).
