I received Kindle Publishing. Yes You Can! last night and read it in its entirety in one sitting. I have read a number of KDP publishing guides, and this one is practically one of most well written guides I have read. The Author has created a very easy to follow, no nonsense, step by step guide to publishing on Amazon starting at how to go about first setting up your document for easy formatting, all the way through to hitting the publish button.
I especially appreciate the visual aides the Author included, such as screen shots showing how to navigate a Word Doc to find the elements you will need to set your document up properly. She also included a visual sample of what incorrect formatting looks like, which I found particularly helpful.
The Author did a very good job of explaining not only how to format properly, but why certain steps are important. She did a very good job of explaining how the different Kindle devices render text differently so that you can create a document that will display beautifully across all devices.
If you are considering publishing on Amazon, I would recommend starting with this guide and following it through from beginning to end. Even if you are not new to KDP, I would recommend starting with this guide and following it through from beginning to end. I have read a number of KDP guides, and still learned several things by reading Kindle Publishing. Yes You Can!
It gives tricks of the trade and tips on best practice for how to do things easily. I liked the discussion on fonts and font sizes - particularly with respect to the limits on the Kindle. Also liked several suggestions for how authors can easily add a bit of elegance to the overall design of their book.
The author's detailed knowledge of Kindle formats was evident in the charts showing the particular capabilities of each model of Kindle readers. I appreciated the discussion on use of Notepad++ for cleaning up the final manuscript produced by Word but have to admit that some of the comments on HTML editing were a little over my head.
