This book does exactly what is intended. It teaches the mechanics of preparing a new book as well as converting a finished book for publishing on Kindle. I haven't published yet, but the formatting is done as directed and it all works as advertised. I have taken the book's suggestions regarding a professional cover design and edit. If I've written a good book, I believe I can succeed with it by following these clear instructions, coupled with the instructions in the publishing guide, which I am also using. I believe the rest has to be up to me.

This book was exactly what it was advertised to be. I found many useful hints for formatting my upcoming manuscript, "Nothing, Everything, Nothing" and insight into how the amazon kindle self-publishing process worked. I found some areas were shorter than I had hoped for but overall I was satisfied with the book.
I recommend this book for anyone looking to self-publish with Amazon. It's a quick read and I know I would have made several formatting errors without it. Everyone wants their book to look its best and this book tells you how to achieve that.

Comanche Girls Prayer was a well written heartfelt novel. I could not put it away. It has so much more than I originally thought, filled with much love and passion for the life they loved. It is written to show us how we as humans can be extremely hard on others for being different. It tells so much more than we are prepared to hear. I loved how Angela Castillo developed the characters, the descriptions of their culture and more.

This is a clean read novel.
I give this novel a five star reading

The author tried very hard to explain everything in detail. However, when it came to technicalities like how to create a TOC, I was still lost.
Probably not the author's fault but my own. Still an excellent source of information for anybody thinking of publishing his or her first ebbok.

If you are building your book for Kindle you must have this book and follow the guidelines. Makes it way easier and your
books layout will be correct. If you upload it without following the guidelines here, you could end up with a pretty wonky book.

Great resource for beginner Kindle authors. Full of information that was not in the basic instructions online, but very helpful in crafting a better quality ebook.
