How to publish your book on amazon kindle

  1. 1. How to Publish Your Book on Amazon Kindle In His Season, Inc. www.inhisseason.com, Presented by: Teresita Glasgow
  2. 2. Build Your Book <ul><li>File Format : Save your content in doc Format, not rtf or docx (which do not translate well in Kindle). Save your work periodically as you make changes to ensure that all changes are recorded. </li></ul><ul><li>Layout : Use indentations, bold characters, italics and headings, as they translate into your Kindle book. However, bullet points, special fonts, headers, and footers will not be translated so avoid those. </li></ul><ul><li>Page Breaks : Enter a page break at the end of every chapter to prevent the text from running together. To insert a page break in MS Word, click “Insert” at the top menu bar and select “Page Break.” </li></ul><ul><li>Image Placement : Images should be inserted in jpeg format with center alignment (don’t copy and paste from another source). Select “Insert”, Picture, locate the file. Although the Kindle device can display images, it has a grey scale electronic interface so image heavy books are better viewed on color-supported devices such as iPad, iPod, PC, and Mac. </li></ul><ul><li>Spell-check and Grammar : This tool is always your friend to ensure a professional presentation free of typos. Use this tool but also manually proofread your file to ensure no errors are missed by the automated checker. </li></ul>In His Season, Inc. www.inhisseason.com, Presented by: Teresita Glasgow
