How to Create an Ebook for AmazonCreating an eBook for Amazon
Fomatize your book for Amazon Kindle with Microsoft Word in just 30 mins.
Part of the factor that determines whether your work will be a success or a failure on Amazon Kindle is sophistication. Have you ever seen the text converge when you read a text, a paragraph with strange signs or text fragments that just go on forever? Probably just left the notebook.
They can have an amazing track, stunning artwork and impressive contents, but if you don't properly reformat your text, it will impact your readers' overall enjoyment. Bad formating makes it hard to browse your text. This also influences how your reader perceives the qualitiy of your text. The reader has been subconsciously taught to open a certain size when reading in a certain size - and to await this size every year.
When your book's editing is not what you are used to, you may have the feeling that it was done or made cheap ly by an hobby. Will this mean that you need to employ a specialist to reformat your work? No, I've seen many writers spending $100 just so someone can reformat their work.
I' ve reformatted my e-books myself and have the skills to do it quickly and effectively. There' s no need to pay $100 just to make your books look good and professionally prepared. Well, I can show you how to do a Kindle in 30 mins. Throughout this free in-depth guidebook I will show you how to reformat a work for Kindle for falsehood and article (yes, there is a variation when it comes to reformatting the invention and article, so you need to make sure you are following the right lawsuit for your genre).
The only thing you need is to read the next step and put it into practice with the next volume you have. All books have default parts, from the front and index to the back and the kernel. It is important that every part of the volume is published in the right order and with the right information.
So I' m just thinking about the Kindle eight-section page size. All you need are a few things to post your eBook: There is no need for any particular formatting capabilities. We have to make sure our manuscripts are clear before we review each section of the work.
When you have your script in MS Word, mark all text with CTRL+A, move the pointer over the headlines and click Normal. If this is the case, you want to delete it with a TEXT file type. Now that you have deleted all of your formats, you can begin to design your script for Amazon Kindle.
Adjust the size of your song, adjust the caption, modify captions, and so on. Or you can adjust the orientation to centred or aligned. "The" Style-Set" says MS Word which font should be used for your titles, headlines and heels. I' m using "Simple" because it's the simplest and simplest one.
In order to modify the styleset in your documents, simply click Modify Styles, slide to Styleset and choose the Simple checkbox. First page of your script is the front page. Your cover page should only contain the cover, author's name and subtitles, copyrights and a call to act.
Modify the name of the books using the titlestyle. Occasionally the track type does not appear in the first line of the stilllist. When you can't see the song name, click the drop-down arrows to display all of them. Move the track to the middle. Choose the name and click the Center Text pushbutton.
Modify subtitles and writer styles to subtitles and center them. Now this section will also be centred, but it will only be plain text. Choose Standard text styles. Draw up a call to act. In order to create a call-to-action lib, you must add a hypertext to your call-to-action text.
Highlight the call text, click the Insert folder and click Hyperlink. When used in MS Word, this works in Amazon Kindle. This ensures that your reader does not see the next section or section of your eBook until they click the Next Continue pushbutton and browse to the next page on their Kindle read.
So at the end of the cover, each section and section, you will add a page makeup to make it tidy and straight. It is the introductory or preface to your text and the first section in which we will use the sectionheader. Select the headline of this page and click Headline 1.
Customize the orientation of your header, adding additional spaces, using a different typeface, or leaving it as it is. At this point, what you are trying to do is to adjust the headline 1 setting as you imagine the section header will appear in each section of your text.
Mark the text for which you want to modify the distance, then right-click and choose Paragraph. See the paragraph preferences for an optional distance adjustment. When you have completed the headline format, mark the text, right-click Headline 1 and choose Update Headline 1 to adjust the selection.
Things you just did is a user-defined title 1 styles in MS Word. That means that the format you have just defined in the title of this section is translated over the entire volume by just click on Headline 1 where it should appear. If the text under the title is just plain text, it must be placed in plain text format.
On the picture above you can see that there is a pilgrim crow above the headline of the chapters. When you want an additional place at the beginning of each section and section, that's fine as long as you make it consistent throughout the work. As with the cover page, add a page break at the end of this section.
In this section we will explain to our readership why they should be reading your work. Select the title of this page and click Headline 1. You will see that you do not have to make any changes to this headline to correspond to the headline "Why I have written this book". It mimics the characteristics and attribute of the first title and will appear for each text you put on the Headline 1 sty.
If the text under the title is just plain text, select Plain Text. So the next section of your textbook is actually the index. However, since you cannot create a clicking index without completing your text before, we will start by reformatting the sections. Notice: Make sure you have a list of tables of contents prior to section 1.
Now the sections of a reference work can contain a headline, a subheadline, a subheading, so on. Use the headline 1. 2 for the section name. After the first headline, the text should be a standard section. Choose the standard styles. Subcategories in the section are headed 2.
Because this is the first headline 2 you use, adjust the format of your subtitle and refresh the Headline 2 attribute to have it translated throughout the work. Use it to adjust the orientation to the middle, insert distances, alter the fonts, etc. Once you have reformatted the subheader, mark the text, right-click Header 2 and choose Refresh Header 2 to adjust the selection.
You should place the text under each section in the regular way. The subcategory in your subcategory is placed under category 3. Do the same as for category 2 for category 3. Once you have reformatted the subheader, mark the text, right-click Header 3 and choose Update Header 3 to adjust the selection.
Under the sub-categories, the text is also placed in the usual way. Add a page break at the end of the section. In the second section, begin with the section 2. Put it on column 1. 8. After the first headline, the text should be a standard section.
Choose the regular styles. Subheading styles in the section are headed 2. You do not need to modify the Headline 2 setting - any setting you have previously selected and used to refresh the headline will affect all Headline 2 choices in your work. You should place the text under each subheading in the regular format.
When your subcategory contains a subcategory, it is placed in category 3. 12. Under the sub-categories, the text is also placed in the regular way. Add a page break at the end of the section. Once you have added the last page makeup after you have formatted all the sections of your textbook, you will reformat the final material, beginning with the "About the author" page.
Place the headline on Headline 1. 2. Under the headline, the text is a recurring part. Select Standard for the styles. You' d like to make it very easy for your reader to buy your next Amazon-edition. Modify the headline to Headline 1. 2. Listing all your titles on this page in a standard way.
Visit the Amazon page of each of your ledgers and copy the page's link. Mark the location, right-click and choose Copy. Mark your name in the checklist, go to the Insert page and click Hyperlink. Keep in mind that when you ask your reader to read your textbook, you cannot give presents.
This would be a breach of Amazon's conditions of use. When Amazon finds out that you are doing this, you may actually loose the ratings of your titles; they may delete the titles or, in worst cases, your whole bankroll may be blocked. To prevent indexing in the TOC, change the header styles for this section to Headline 2.
You will learn more about this when creating your index of content. Under the title, place the text in Regular Styles. Notice: You don't need to add a direct reference to the "Create Review" page, as Amazon now prompts the reader to check your eBook when they click on the next page at the end of your eBook.
Since your whole eBook is in Kindle format, you need to create your TOC. It is very important that you take these easy to create a single klickable directory that works on all eBook scanners and equipment. 2 Delete the whole text in the index except the page breaks.
You have to make some very important adjustments on the "Table of Contents" page. Instead, you are measuring the line because the setting for the books varies from machine to machine. We want to use hypertext links instead of page numbers. Initially headings 1-3 were displayed, now only header 1 is displayed.
That is why I have advised you to choose category 2 for the index and "one last thing". When everything works in Word, it works for Amazon Kindle. You are now prepared to have your non-fiction published on Kindle. There' are only a few additional things you need to do to make sure the page is laid out like a literature work.
First thing you need to do is to modify the appearance of your section text. Mark part of your section text, then right-click to choose paragraph. After you make this modification, mark the text, right-click Standard, and click Refresh to adjust the selection. As a result, all of the plain text in your text will be changed to fit the preferences you have just refreshed.
The" normal" styles are the basis of all other headline styles. When I was updating the regular text, what was happening was that it also was updating headlines 1-3, headlines and caption. So, if you mark the caption, right-click it and choose Paragraph, you will see that it is now notched.
Modify the parenthesis setting for each of the fonts by following two easy actions. Begin with the cover art. Mark the name, right-click it and choose Heel. In the Indentation > Special: None section of the page, click OK. With the text selected, right-click the song and choose Update song to adjust the selection.
When this is done, redo these two operations for the Subtitle, Headline 1, Headline 2 and Headline 3 styles. Once you have updated all your styling preferences in your guide, you can modify the distance and indent for some parts. The biography of the writer and the other works with a different look could look better, for example.
