    Font style, size, and line spacing.

    I am writing a book on youth soccer. I need to decide on type of font, size, etc. I am thinking about Georgia, size 11, with 1.3 line spacing. Any suggestions. It will be printed by POD service, Lightning Source.

    Georgia is a nice font, but I prefer Times New Roman.

    Since you're going the self-publishing route, you are in complete control of the interior layout -- one of the things you need to balance is the readability of a page versus the cost per page for the finished book. Font, kerning, line-spacing, margins, header and footer space, point size, et cetera all have an impact on the final cost to print.

    Why not ask this over in the Self-Publishing forum where others with self-pubishing experience can offer good advice?
