Reeser's book does an excellent job of giving the reader step-by-step instructions on how to submit their manuscripts to Amazon's Kindle system. The author knows the people reading her book are not experts, so everything is simply written for anyone to understand. It is also filled with valuable advice and links to help make your venture more successful. Reeser does not promise you will become the next J.K. Rowling, but she assures you can make a healthy living self-publishing your literature through the Kindle. It is easy to think this book could be an advertisement to get people to buy a Kindle but Reeser justifies her praise for the system and offers additional advice on how to upload your work to other reading devices, such as the Barnes and Nobles, the Nook.
The book acknowledges information regarding the Kindle or any device will constantly change throughout the years, so some of Reeser's information may be outdated. However, Reeser's book remains an informative and trustworthy guide for self-publishing on the Kindle system in this remarkable digital age that we live in.

I've just finished writing my best selling manuscript. I want to sell it! Who am I going to turn too? Kindle that's who! The how-to leader in uploaded on-line stories, and do-it-yourself publishing.
Finally! Now there's an alternative to get your book to market without all the hassles of going the traditional publishing route. It's called Self-Publishing.
The history of Kindle, getting started, the payment process, publishing using digital test platforms, publishing for mobile devices, for blogs, newspapers and magazines, marketing and promotion, social media, reviews of your work, generating ideas, and industry standards, you couldn't get a book more thorough than this, on everything you need to do, from start to finish. Packed full of how-to facts.
I have one beef with it. It might be little outdated now! 2011. Not old by any standards but we all know how fast things can change on the internet, especially web sites.
So, good luck uploading that manuscript to Kindle. I'll have to give this book five
stars. ***** Well written in an engaging style plus easy to read with without all those big words, that intimidate. Happy Kindling.
Author Cynthia Reeser, who published several issues of a magazine on Kindle, provides a plethora of information. She explains why search keywords are important and shows how to create them. Reeser discusses the importance of previewing your final manuscript before taking it to the ether--noting extra spaces and unnecessary punctuation sometimes creep in. If you want to format your own book, an appendix provides eight pages on how to use html. The book is also interspersed with case studies based on interviews with authors. For example, an Australian author lauded Kindle because she reaches readers worldwide and can update books as needed.
