If this area is of interest to you, the purchase of a separate book covering these topics is recommended. As well, this manual is best suited for fiction novels, or general nonfiction books. If your print nonfiction book requires a great deal of specialized formatting, you may consider using a professional page layout program, such as Adobe InDesign. The use of InDesign is not covered in this book.
