If you liked my blog post about formatting for Kindle, you’re in luck. I’ve rewritten those instructions to be easier and quicker and put it all in this $0.99 Kindle ebook.
Format Your eBook for Kindle in One Hour - A Step-by-Step Guide provides, surprisingly enough, basic step-by-step instructions on how to format your ebook for Kindle. It gives you the necessary steps to format your book as quickly as possible without using Amazon’s conversion tools. This book is not a reference guide that tells you every minute detail about formatting books for Kindle.
If you don’t want to pay to have some service convert a manuscript into the Kindle format, but you also don’t want to spend a lot of time on it yourself, then this book is for you. This is also for you if you don’t like the automatic conversion results that the Kindle tools provide. With this guide YOU determine where the page breaks are, how many line breaks between your chapter title and the start of the page, and so on.
The goal of this guide is to enable you to (relatively) quickly format your ebook in a simple fashion with cover art, copyright page, clickable table of contents, and chapter titles. So you aren’t overwhelmed, these instructions tell you how to format your ebook in one way, with minimal options.
This book includes a link to an HTML template that you can use for any Kindle ebook. You do NOT need to know HTML. You just need to replace some placeholder text to specify your book information in a text editor such as Notepad or Microsoft Expression. You’ll also need to do some Find & Replace on your book in Word, plus some Copy & Paste.
These instructions tell you how to include the following in your ebook:
Links from one part of your book to another part of your book
Links to any website (for web-capable devices)
Clickable table of contents
Numbered and bulleted lists
Also included are instructions on how to zip your files for submission to Amazon DTP.
This eBook is published DRM-free. You can buy it here for just 99 cents!
