Ever wondered how to format your manuscript for uploading to Amazon Kindle and Smashwords? This book gives practical advice on the Word settings to use (and those to avoid) and includes step-by-step guidelines to produce a clean manuscript ready for uploading.

It also covers the steps required to format your manuscript for a print book using CreateSpace.

This handy reference covers:
  • The elements you need ready before uploading your manuscript.
  • MS Word settings to use, how to create and modify styles, indented and block paragraphs, and how to build a Table of Contents using bookmarks and hyperlinks.
  • Formatting for Kindle and Smashwords.
