Ok, popular books like Fault in our Stars, Hunger Games, The Maze Runner are a 5 by 8 inches paperbook on CREAM coloured pages but the option for Digest which has the closest dimension restricts the choice of 'Black and White on Cream setting. I really would like my book to be a

 

1. Standard PaperBook 

2. Digest Size (5.5 by 8.5 inches)

AND 3. The interior design would have black and white on CREAM

 

But apparently you can't use that option on a Digest size Standard Paperback. Smiley Sad

(Digest size can't be used on Premium Paperback too). I just really want my book to have the same appearance and quality effect as the popular ones. I don't like the black and white on White look. I'm still writing my book and it will be finished before the end of the year (I hope) so if this option could be added before that time, that would help me out ALOT. Thank you for the amazing website anyways. Smiley Happy

Hello JonTheGospel247

Thank you for your recommendation. As you may be aware, we are somewhat at the mercy of what our global print vendors can produce when it comes book formats. Also, preferences tend to be different around the world. For example, I have heard from our UK authors that they prefer the white paper to the "muddy" cream colored paper.

 

I also had a look at the Create Book page and noticed that the Digest size does not qualify for retail distribution, which may or may not be important for your work, but it should be considered if you wish to apply an ISBN to your project.
