I have published an e-book on Kindle through Amazon, and although I had tried another e-book publishing company, it is much easier to publish on Amazon Kindle and this book succinctly takes you through all of the steps in a simple and complete manner. I found it invaluable if you are going to publish for Kindle.

How-to-do-it books come in 3 modes: super technical, sloppy, and helpful.
This book is in the third categoary. It has straight forward instructions and explanations.
I should know. I spent several years myself writing software manuals.
I also just published my first ebook on Amazon.

For ebook authors, "Publish" is a must.
Thanks for making it so easy, Amazon.

As a previously traditionally published author I can better appreciate this simplified process.
Background - My first novel (Serial Separation) took months to complete the publication process. Much communication and expense was involved.
Kindle process - Although I heard that loading a novel was going to be time consuming regarding formatting etc., It only took an initial load to see how the format of Scent of Gardenia looked, and then one final load with the formatting changed in Word.
I have, and strongly recommend, this book to anyone who wants to understand and potentially publish using the KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) process.
To make this review complete I would suggest the following in your Word document -
Double Space, set page width to be 6" x 9", No indents, Page break only after chapter endings, Times New Roman 12 PT., and in the file save process (save a backup) but save the Word document as WEB PAGE, FILTERED. My underestanding is that removes all of the special Word document formats. That HTML file (don't panic) is the file to upload to the Kindle process.
Having written manuals in the past - this document was a help. I opened this instruction document while I did each step in Amazon. Read that document BEFORE you attempt to do the actual process.
Dick C Waters (this is offered only as a suggestion - I am not responsible for any problems.) Please check out my two novels, and the other two to be published soon.
(Please ignore the "Mercedes" in the reviewed by as she's just a character in the novel, which you won't ignore at all if you read the two novels)

This kindle book contains the same information as the simplistic walkthrough on the KDP site.

While this is a free title, and as such has lesser expectations than a book you would actually pay for, the lack of information is saddening, given that the source is Amazon itself.

This book in its entirety deals only with the business aspects of getting your book published through the site, and touches on how to actually create the book only by linking to various places on the web.

Being someone who is interested in creating books for the Amazon Kindle, there is much that I would like to see in a book from the source about how to create a book that is only available through the forums, and not in an official source.

The Kindle is a wonderful device, with great potential. I would like official information on how to make the most of the platform. As it is, we are given all the information we need on the business side of things, and set to fend for ourselves on figuring out the rest of Amazon's platform.

This Book is a must for anyone who wishes to learn the insides and the outs
of writing and publishing their own e-book. It is a step-by-step Guide for DTP Formatting and HLML
Manuscripts to Publication which is a breeze when you follow the Guide. With a finished Manuscript,
it takes about a half hour to Publish. I recommend it!

This book is ok for creating a book for the Kindle ereader, but the "Building your book for Kindle" is much better as it is more informative. Both are free from Amazon, so why not treat yourself and get the better volume?

This book is OK for a brief overview of how to publish for Kindle but skimps on information about how to (legitimately) avoid the 30% withholding tax by non-US residents. Also, the links provided in the book do not work anymore. I had to do Google search to find the information I wanted to know.

If you have any idea of wanting to publish on Kindle--this is a GREAT guide to do it.....I followed all the steps to a tee and got three books published in a very short time. Explanations and diagrams are exact! Thanks for a great book.

Kindle replacement
I received a Kindle for my birthday 2 years ago, along with an extended warranty for accidental damage. I dropped it and it was replaced by Amazon. Last year on holiday my nephew trod on it, once again cracking the screen. At the time I just bought a new Kindle from Tesco, so as not to offend my... Read More
