KINDLE LINK IS HERE!

KINDLE EBOOK (ENGLISH ONLY)

Will post the other Kindle links eventually 😀  Hopefully, there should be no problems with downloading the files, images, and so. But if there is… please let me know and I will contact customer service in an instant.

  1. Congratulations! What software did you end up using to convert your .doc into an e-book, and into what format? .mobi? I’m curious to know what file type you uploaded to Amazon, and what file types are available for download.

    I’m going through this process right now, too! I’m running into a problem with my Table of Contents on my Kindle DX. The book opens to page 2 (Title Page), and the Table of Contents does not have a working link to page 1 (Front Cover, which has an image that takes up the entire page). I converted my .epub to a .mobi, so somewhere in the process it may have broken something. The .epub version looks good on Adobe Digital Editions, and the B&N Nook for Android, but I don’t have an actual Nook to test it on to verify.

    • Actually, I completely skipped the epub process entirely. If you have the Scrivener program, you need to download KindleGen. It’s on Amazon.com and it’s a free program that comes with it. In addition, there’s a free previewer in KDP site that you can use to see what your mobi file or any file will look like in other formats. Use that as well to see what it would look like on a Nook.

      Once I converted to KindleGen, it automatically did my front cover and table of contents with the links. You don’t need to do anything else. However, the only little issue I found was some of the lines in between a paragraph may have a space between them, but it’s nothing big that it ruins the format or the text size, etc. Also, it didn’t happen constantly, I think I only found just a few in the whole file.

      As long as everything’s readable, I didn’t have a problem with it, since about 99% of it remained accurate with the original format. Other than that, you should be good to go for publishing. Email or call up the Kindle DP customer service reps and ask them if they can check your files to see if there’s any other errors with formatting or any problems with text. That’s what I did as an extra step before I published, because they know what to look for and a second set of eyes helps to confirm it. Hope that helps! 🙂

    • One more thing… if the KindleGen doesn’t work, I keep hearing about SmashWords. You could go on their site and try them, since they have many formats including Nook, Kindle, pdf and so on. The only bad thing is that you need to read their ebook on how to format everything to their standards and they do have some strict guidelines about content and how long it takes to review your ebook. So, it might be a longer process as well. You could also pay for a professional to do it, but I think it’s like $59 bucks or less. But just as a back-up, you could try them since I’ve been hearing so much about them lately.

    • Actually, it’s $40 or so to pay for a professional to format your manuscript at SmashWords. 🙂 Just wanted to give you the accurate price. Good luck hon! 😀

      • Great information. I will have to look into Scrivener and KindleGen. I think that I’m going through too many conversion processes and ending up with some errors. I really like the ability to manipulate my code in the ePub file using Sigil, but I’m reluctant to learn to code other formats, lol. I’m definitely perfectionist when it comes to the TOC and navigation ability of the ebook 🙂

        Congratulations on getting your ebook to Amazon!

      • No prob! Making an ebook is no simple task, especially since it’s kinda new to us and all. Hope you can get your ebook formatted the way you want it to. Good luck to you as well and thank you! 🙂
