Many think they have a book in them, be it fiction or non-fiction. And a surprisingly large number of these dreamers do devote the time and energy needed to produce a book-length manuscript.
Then comes the problem: getting the magnum opus accepted by a publisher. In this commercial age in which profit is the prime, and often the sole, consideration book publishers reduce their risks by putting their money on established favourites. J K Rowling, John Grisham, Lee Child... It's increasingly difficult for a new author to enter the hard-back kingdom.
However, Amazon and the Net have made self-publishing an enticing reality.
This book shares the skills needed to do this in a detailed, easy-to-follow way. Don't hide your words under a bushel. Offer them to a world-wide audience by following Sally's advice.

Our first eBook has been critiqued by Sally and is now with her for formatting and then it's a short(ish) run to publishing! There is something about Sally's style of writing that makes it easy to read, add to that the very well received hints and suggestions. This book is a must from a very good writer and author! If they had 6 stars it would be 6 stars!
Whilst I have not produced an ebook myself, if I ever do get to this point, then this book will be one of my first points of reference. Sally Jenkins writes particularly well, she is concise and makes the whole process for KDP self publication seem a lot easier. This book covers everything that I’m likely to want to know.
In the ever changing world of e-publishing, Sally has revised this book on two occasions since its original publication and I read the 2017 update.
The book is exceptionally well written and edited, and I particularly like the way Sally shares her own experiences as a published Kindle author. I am the author of several Kindle e-books myself, but I still picked up some great tips that I will be applying myself in future.
My one criticism is that I might like to have seen a bit more about formatting. The main advice here is to read another published e-book on this subject. That's OK in its way, but formatting a Kindle e-book in Word isn't rocket science, and some specific tips and advice on this topic would not have gone amiss.
Overall, though, this as an extremely readable and informative guide that every aspiring Kindle author should have in their library. Just don't expect it to tell you every last thing you need to know.
