Convert a Word Doc to PDF with Page Sizing

Many authors want to give a preview of their book to a reviewer and/or their fans. But if you save your formatted manuscript as PDF in Microsoft Word, the page sizing is all off. It will default to 8.5″x11″. My formatted manuscript happens to be 5.5″x8″ so I get tons of space on all sides and it just looks crappy.

GOOD NEWS! I found a great online convertor that fixes this!


You upload your custom doc file, choose a format (I chose Kindle for iPad) and it converts it to a PDF with the proper page sizing. Easy as that.

I am making this post because I couldn’t find the answer anywhere using a Google search. I hope this helps others as it helped me!
