Help! I Don’t Have An Electronic Version Of My Manuscript!

I want to repubish my out-of-print book but all I have is an old, printed copy of the book. What can I do?

I always recommend authors hire a college student to type their manuscript into a word processing program so it can be easily edited, formatted, etc. to any printer’s specs. Scanning pages creates HUGE files (each page will be a graphic) and, while there is software that can convert the words in those graphics into a word processing document, they always create numerous errors so the file will need to be edited all over again anyway. The easiest solution is to simply have the manuscript typed into a word processing program. 🙂
