You're already using Scrivener. There's no need to buy additional software in order to prepare your project for print-on-demand.
You're busy. You can't afford to spend a lot of time watching a lesson. Each video is ten minutes or less, so you can get back to writing.
All lessons are drawn from my personal experience. You get to watch over my shoulder as I walk you through the steps I used to prepare my manuscripts for print.
Once you've customized the print settings you can save them as a compile preset. For the next book, just load the preset, tweak as necessary, and you're ready to hit Compile.
The course includes a bonus module on how to use Scrivener to create an excerpt booklet you can print yourself. The module also explains how to create an interior file for an excerpt booklet that will be printed by a professional printer.
