Do you know how to format kindle book before uploading so that it looks good in kindle. You might have struggled a lot with formatting. I did, hence I know. There are lot of writers or publishers who are struggling with the formatting of kindle book. I’ve also struggled in beginning but after few research and trying out I finally learned how to do it properly. Though amazon gives you proper formatting guidelines but it will be too tedious if you follow it.
I use msword for creating my book, which is a very good tool. You can use any tool which generates the kindle supported formats. I normally create as docx format. I’ve attached a template which you can use for creating your kindle book. All the below mentioned steps I’ve already performed in the template so use it for your kindle publication. Only difference is the chapters I’ve not put as “header 1”, both the approaches work hence you can choose any one.
Below I’m putting across few tips and tricks to fix the kindle formatting.
1. Keep it simple
Lot of fancy stuffs in the document will cause issues to you and with different devices it may not look good. So its better to keep it simple. With fancy stuffs I mean , border, colors, lot of images, fancy bullets etc.
2. Use Font Georgia, as it looks pretty good on Kindle
