Please tell me this isn't actually an attempt to ask a question about how to publish something on the Kindle.

I'm not sure what it is. I checked to see if they were possible books she was promoting, but they're not.

OP: If you're asking for real author's to comment on publishing through KDP - I'd suggest either going to the link above or going over the Meet Our Authors forum and ask a question there. You might have better luck if you actually ask a question - just something to think about.

The "hot to publish" part made me think she might be asking how to publish on KDP, but given how very little information she actually provided, it's impossible to say for sure.

It also sounded like it could be an unlinked book title to me - but nothing like that came up when I searched for it!

1) Read. Alot.
2) Learn to write eloquently and with a purpose. Complete sentences are nice, but if you can express a coherent thought in less than that, some accommodation can be reached.
3) Use a word processor to string together these written words in a compatible digital format, like Microsoft Word, or RTF.
4) Simplify your formatting to avoid contexts that the kindle conversion will not recognize. The simpler, the better, usually.
5) Read through all of the how to guides on the KDP site and make sure you understand the rules and legal context of publishing on KDP. It's a legal contract that has implications for what Intellectual Property rights you are giving up to try to make money on Amazon.
6) If you still cannot come back and answer this thread yourself, give up publishing on KDP, and become a cook. Or a Mercenary. Or... well.... anything but a publisher on KDP, I suppose.

It's a lot, not alot. Alot is not a word.

The OP's product reviews are perfectly literate and well punctuated. Something else happened here.
