    • ==== ====Best Seller Kindle book author explains how to FORCE Amazon To Hand You #1 BestsellerStatus In 48 Hours Or Less...http://www.howtoget.us/publishonkindle==== ====The key to saving yourself a whole lot of time is to learn a bit about formatting for Kindle beforeyou start to write. Sure, you can go back and change the formatting but it can take hours, and youwant to concentrate on writing the novel or short story, and not on reformatting. These tips apply ifyou have Word (and perhaps others like Open Office but I dont know that for sure) and you cansave the first of your two versions in doc or docx. More about that other version later.Epublishing came to be extremely popular in the last few years. Its quite a bit different to printpublishing, as most of us know. With Kindles direct to the Kindle/Amazon site, anyone can publishtheir own books in almost an instant. What a way to read aspiring new authors as well asseasoned vets! Printed books are always popular, and now anyone can add the electronicversions as well. This will increase sales, and give encouragement to your writing efforts. Pick agenre for your novel, such as a thriller or romance, and setting -- Ancient Egypt, for instance.Formats for Epublishing depend a lot on which platform you are publishing on, so I can tell you alittle about Kindle only, at the moment. When you publish on Kindle you can also tell customers onyour website how to download an app for their iPad. This enables the stunning graphics whichiPad possesses, to really highlight your Kindle-published book. This iPad Kindle app is free fromthe app store.The nitty-gritty:• Using Word, and saving in doc or docx, set your margins to a half inch and page size to 5"by 7". This will give you the approximate visual look of an ebook.• Do not put any kind of header or footer or page numbers in there. These are useless forebooks as the customer can resize the page as they wish.• You can put a table of contents in the front, but do not use Words auto function as this wontwork. Just type in your table of contents manually at the front of your book.• You can use embedded-in-Word jpegs, more on that later. How to incorporate charts andbullet points is a more complex issue, so explore that as a separate and additional body ofknowledge.• Use single spacing and Times New Roman 12 point font, and insert a page break at the endof each chapter so your text does not run on.• Lastly, and this is the most important -- do not use tabs for your paragraph indents. If youknow how to use Words style function then work on a template for an ebook. If you dont knowhow to do this and dont want to spend hours learning how, then manually pop in 5-7 spaces asyour indent.Download a free reader called Mobipocket Reader and check how your book will look, before you
    • hop on to the Kindle self-publishing site. There are ways to link your chapters (listed in the table ofcontents) to your chapter headings, but that can get a bit complicated so for now, this is the basicstuff. When you are happy with your finished Word doc or docx, then save it and then save againin the Word menu as "Web Page, Filtered". Ignore the Word box about "this will remove formattingetc.) as this is what you need to do. You will have two versions, now -- a regular Word file and anHTML one.When you upload youll be using the HTML file. If you have embedded photos in the Word docthen look for a separate folder thats been saved automatically with your photos in it. Try and file itnext to your HTML doc, so you can upload together when youre at the Kindle self-publishing site.These photos will then, hopefully, plop themselves right back into your document/novel/shortstory/best seller, in exactly the right place. They will automatically appear in the reader you use tocheck before publishing. As you write, by the way, make your characters names appropriate toyour novels setting. I used Meryneith, Kemsa, Quasshie, Thoth, Aapep, and Asim to make mybook about Ancient Egypt come alive.If youd like to find out more things about publishing in general, plus other musings, and also howto download my latest book, a thriller called The Mummy Makers Daughter then check out myblog, and watch the movie trailer as well.Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Jens_E_Huebner==== ====Best Seller Kindle book author explains how to FORCE Amazon To Hand You #1 BestsellerStatus In 48 Hours Or Less...http://www.howtoget.us/publishonkindle==== ====
