Typography for a book?

I know this must vary based on preference. I haven't gone to school for writing but regardless have started writing a book. I have a few chapters done, and need to start format and editing it.Should the spacing be 1, 1.5 or 2? I am using Times New Roman as the font for text which is pretty standard.Right now the font size is set on 12. But, is that what I should be using? Also, the width setting? Right now it's whatever the standard is on windows word but should I change the width parameters?I thank you in advance for whatever guidance you can offer me.
