Product Description

Product Description

This free guide will walk you through the necessary steps in creating a professional digital file of your book using Microsoft Word 2010 for quick upload to Kindle Direct Publishing.

These are the topics we'll discuss:

• Before You Write

• Building the Front Matter of Your Book

• Building Your Table of Contents

• Preparing a Cover

• Finishing Your Book

• Uploading and Checking the Quality of Your Book

• Just Before Publishing Your Book

• Making Changes After Publishing Your Book

We've written this guide with you in mind. We'll walk you through the key steps for every part of the process, and while it may seem repetitive at times, we want to make sure you have exactly the information you need, when you need it.

And don't forget — this is a process! Publishing on Kindle is easy and takes only 5 minutes of your time — but correctly preparing your book for success on Kindle takes time and effort. Don't worry; if you follow the steps we outline here, you should feel confident you'll end up with a successfully designed and formatted book and one you will be proud to see for sale on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a good 'how to' book. Aug. 1 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Resource July 13 2014
By Casia S
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! Aug. 18 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
