Writing your book in the first place.“As you read through my book, you’re going to see that the formatting of your book is actually easier than the writing. With the easy-to-use method that you will learn here, there are no codes, no HTML, no CSS, no long and complicated “style guides,” no searching your manuscript for “regular expressions,” none of that. All you need is a computer and the desire to write a book. If that’s who you are and that’s what you want to do, this book is for you.“Even if you’ve never done any book formatting in your life, you can make a Kindle book as professional looking as this one, and you don’t need to know any code. I emphasize that because it’s important and it’s the biggest sticking point in the lives of virtually all self-published authors.“However, by following the simple instructions presented here, anyone who can type up a well-made school term paper, containing a few headings that stand out, a few graphics, and some bold- and italicized words, can format a book. In fact, it’s even easier than a term paper, because you don’t have to worry about things like what size paper you’ll use (it doesn’t matter), or where to set the margins (all at zero), or how to make a Table of Contents (it’s done automatically for you).“If you just follow, step-by-step, the simple instructions in this book—now even simpler in this fully-revised edition—you’ll discover how you can take your finished manuscript and turn it into a professional-looking Kindle book so quickly and easily that you almost won’t believe it.”_________________________BOOK DESCRIPTION:Does it seem as if you’re spending more time formatting your book than you did writing it in the first place? Don’t waste hours struggling with incomprehensible codes while trying to fix indents that won’t indent correctly, extra blank lines that appear out of nowhere, or dozens of paragraphs that are all in italics. “Anyone Can Make a Kindle Book” shows you how formatting a book can be even easier than writing one.YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW ANY CODE OF ANY KIND.Even better: you can go from your completed manuscript in your word processor to a finished, ready-to-sell book in just a couple of minutes. If that sounds too good to be true, it isn’t, and you’ll learn exactly how to do it.Author Peter Spenser explains, using clear, straightforward, non-technical language and easy-to-understand illustrations, how anyone who can type up a decent-looking school term paper can format a book.Filled with easy-to-follow directions and over 100 screen captures to lead you through every step, this is THE how-to Kindle guide that fully explains the remarkably easy method that literally anyone can use to make a perfectly-formatted Kindle book._________________________ABOUT AMAZON’S TWO FORMATS FOR KINDLE BOOKS:Amazon’s “Kindle Direct Publishing” accepts e-books that have been created using either the standard MOBI format or the more complicated KF8 format. The difference is that books in the standard MOBI format are readable on any Kindle device ever made, new or old, worldwide, including all of Amazon’s latest reading devices like the “Paperwhite,” the “Touch,” and all of the various “Fire” tablets. On the other hand, books in the KF8 format can only be read on certain Kindle devices… not on all of them.
