How To: Format a Document for the Kindle

Thing from the Addams Family is a proud Kindle owner.

IO9 is one of my weekly stop-by sites for speculative fiction, and recently they reprinted an amazing little nugget from Business Insider for any writer who’d like to see their work on a Kindle.  With easy step-by-step instructions, they shared how to format any document and convert to a Kindle-ready file. They even have links to shareware designed for the purpose.

My only wish was they had taken more time to explain what it took to make a table of contents, as the software seemed geared toward html experts instead of barely computer literate authors such as myself.  Maybe somebody can give me some pointers on doing that.  Anyway, here’s the link… enjoy!

    The whole Table of Contents thing has really tripped me up with a couple of my eBook projects, but these are really good instructions. Thanks for posting the link!
