Writing an Amazon Kindle Book

  • Write in Microsoft Word then import into Kindle Create.
  • In Kindle Create – most users will select REFLOWABLE rather than COMICS or PRINT REPLICA.   REFLOWABLE is good for textbooks, novels, and all sorts.
  • Theme – I like Classic Theme (love the *** separaters if required)
