After the latest article about Kindle, “Writing Better and Selling More On Kindle“, I was asked to create something more about Kindle formatting, a problem for many people, because Amazon has strict rules about formatting the ebooks for Kindle.
So in this article you will find the best tutorials, exactly the ones that helped me to solve this problem and publish perfect ebooks on Kindle marketplace, without spending money with freelancers or paid software.
Today’s topic is that of formatting your work. This is something I’ve seen a lot of newer writers freak out about and one of the things that requires some serious research. So, I’ve wanted to put together everything I’ve learned for the benefit of those still searching and pulling their hair out.
In a previous post, I provided you with a “cheat sheet” that will help you format an ebook for Lulu using Microsoft Word. This week’s cheat sheet is for formatting an ebook for Kindle Publishing, using Microsoft Word 2010.
By default, Kindle formatting automatically indents your paragraphs. Don’t ask me why. You’d think it’d be easier not to, but I’m not in charge. Sometimes using paragraphs without indentations is necessary.
I love reading on my Kindle, but the screen is just too small and blurry to be useful for PDF files. While it’s lacking in customizability, PDF4Kindle solves this problem pretty well by converting PDF files into Amazon’s native .mobi format, all while being completely web-based.
Thanks so much and see you soon,
