Latex to PDF to KDP

Postby villanova » Wed Mar 15, 2023 9:43 pm

I am trying to self publish a math book with Amazon KDP.

As far as I can tell, one must write the math book in latex and then compile the latex code into a proper PDF, and then submit a proper PDF into the KDP page in Amazon for publication. The PDF must be compiled to have the correct dimensions, margins, trim size, etc such that it will feed into the KDP book such that it will agree with the KDP actual printing process of a 6 x 9 paperback math book.

Trouble is that the Amazon help desk doesn't support Latex help , only MS WORD. Therefor I am clueless on how to get the Latex code to compile into a PDF with correct dimensions for the KDP.

I think what I need is a latex template with the correct dimensions within it that will compile into a PDF that KDP will like. I would like to get started writing the book but I need some help getting the formatting correct so I can adapt as I go along and I won't have to make a lot of changes later.

Thanks !!! , help is much appreciated
