ACCESSING THE PROGRAMS REQUIRED

Listed below are the links to all the programs, applications and online services I used to finish each element of my printed book. You may have some of them already, or similar ones.

If that’s the case, then you’re in front!

Most of the programs and applications are free to download and use. Others involve an online subscription (minimum one month) to access the conversion tools required to complete the setting up and printing of your book.

For further information on the programs and their role in assisting you go to:
