Hi, I’m MK Williams, an author and independent publisher. I love sharing my insights about all things self-publishing with you. Before I get into the details about today’s topic, don’t forget to subscribe. You’ll be notified when I put out new videos every week about self-publishing, making a career out of being an author, and now being a mompreneur.

Today we are going to do a tutorial on how to upload your hardcover book to IngramSpark. In this example I am uploading a jacketed case laminate book to the platform in late 2021 so this tutorial should also be good for 2022. Although I’m probably tempting fate and I’m sure IngramSpark will change the whole interface now.
I don’t want to delay too much, because the tutorial is longer than my usual videos. In this example, I’m uploading the hardcover edition of The Alpha-Nina. Before I get started I have these items:

Interior File
Exterior/Cover Files

If you don’t have those yet for your book, take a minute and get all that together.

I hope this has helped you as you upload your own book to IngramSpark. Let me know what other questions you have about navigating this platform.
