How to Create a Journal with J Bruce Jones

Building a Journal Book Using PowerPoint as Your Design Platform

Bruce is a frequent visitor to our Journey to Authorship class where he is always a hit!  Our students are always excited and inspired when he shares his inspirational wisdom with us.  Bruce spent this weekend doing a sample test blank journal book using PowerPoint. It all worked!

Bruce will be presenting this in an hour long presentation on Dec. 1st.   We are doing this course jointly, as in our weekly Journey to Authorship class.   The recording will then be set up as a course.

Bruce says:  "I wanted to make sure everything works and that I can teach the course. The Step by Step Course for Making Journal Books will cover layout of the interior, the cover, images, where to get them and how to get them to be 300dpi for CreateSpace. For printing we will upload the book files to Amazon/CreateSpace. Everything seems to work just fine. I have figured out how to get my PowerPoint file to print the correct size pdf file. Also I was able to produce the correct size cover spread and get it to be 300dpi for CreateSpace without using Photoshop. That is part of the challenge, producing all the parts correctly. I think I got it!"
