Katherine Hayward

Great article! I am using Georgia 12 pt for the body of my text in my novel, Franklin Gothic Heavy 16 pt for chapter headings and and Franklin Gothic Heavy 26 pt for the cover title and information. Can these fonts be easily embedded by CreateSpace on my behalf? I am a first time Authour and do not have the experience to do so myself.

Inventing Reality Editing Service

CreateSpace should be able to embed those fonts for you without a problem, Katherine. You'll always have the opportunity to see what the manuscript looks like after they've done so...and if it doesn't look right, you then can go back and embed the fonts using the method described above and reupload the manuscript.


This is interesting. Thanks for the info. I had some problems with this in the past so this is helpful.
