Book Description

Do you dream of publishing your book on Kindle, but feel overwhelmed at the prospect of facing the task of formatting your document? You can find a ton of information online explaining how to format your document for Kindle. Unfortunately most of it is complicated, technical, vague, and frustrating. This short book gives you step by step, easy directions for formatting your Microsoft Word document for Kindle, and createing a template that you can use again and again for every Kindle publishing project. No complicated HTML code. No additional files or software needed. This is as simple as it gets, and it really is quite simple. This short and snappy book was written for the non techie who can't or won't pay for something that you can do yourself. It is assumed that you are familiar with the basics of Microsoft Word. The directions recommend that you save your document as Microsoft Word 2007, but can be applied to 2010 and 2013 version (and even saved as 2003).
This book was formerly published as Do It Yourself: Format a Simple MS Word Document for Kindle. It was updated and revised in April of 2015 to include strategies for content creation and marketing, directions for adding images, and basic directions for creating Kindle book covers in Microsoft PowerPoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Guide for Simple Kindle Books April 5, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was short and to the point, but that's what made it great. It didn't take a long time to read or set up a Word template to use for future books. This will make formatting Kindle books in the future easy. One thing to keep in mind is that this is a book on how to format a SIMPLE MS Word document, which means no pictures. That is fine for basic Kindle books. If you want the whole formatting process simplified and plan to write text-only books, you can't go wrong with this little gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clean and Clear February 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not entirely comfortable giving this 5 stars because I haven't tried it yet. However, the instructions were very clear and easy to understand. The e-book looked nice and had a hyperlinked table of contents. There were no giant tracts of empty space. (In other words, if the author used this process for her book, it's one I'd certainly emulate.)

Right now, it leaves me feeling like I could attempt the process, which is what I wanted. If and when I try it and it works, I'll try and remember to come back and update the review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had found this sooner! October 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This makes publishing a Kindle book SO much easier. Once you get your template set up it is GOLDEN and you just have to type away. Well worth the time and saves so much time when trying to get your book submitted.
