Publish Your E-Book in 5 Easy Steps is a quick guide to formatting and preparing your manuscript for publishing and sale on Amazon’s Kindle Bookstore.
Amazon’s Kindle Publishing programme has opened up a host of opportunities for writers who might have otherwise had to wait years in order to be ‘discovered’, for manuscripts to reach their millions of readers instead of languishing at the bottom of a publisher’s or an agent’s slush pile.
While writing your book may have been easy, to many, preparing the manuscript for actual publication can seem like a daunting process. The truth is it’s actually far simpler than it’s made out to be and this book is here to guide you throughout the process.
Instead of paying for a template or paying for someone to format and publish your e-book for you, this quick guide takes you through the step-by-step process of how to format the text, how to ensure the page breaks are in the right place, how to insert pictures and how to build the Table of Contents, all complete with screenshots and detailed instructions.
It also takes you step-by-step through the process of registering on Amazon, to uploading your e-book and finally getting published on Amazon.
The chapters of this book are best read in sequence. You may skip ahead if you are sure you have already covered that particular stage of formatting, but if it’s your first time, it would be safest to just double check by going through each chapter.
This e-book is a result of our own experience of publishing on Amazon’s Kindle and having found it a challenge to wade through the long textual information and instructions provided, we have tried to make this guide as easy and as simple to follow as possible.

It’s easy enough to publish a Kindle ebook, but publishing one that looks professional is much trickier. And a professional result is important, because one bad review on Amazon can have a huge impact on sales. This book describes every step you need to take to get that professional result, in the order that you need to take them. It would have been very helpful for me when I was working my way through the publishing process the first time using trial and error!
