Fear not! I have some really great site suggestions for you! I found myself researching around the web this morning for great walk-through tutorials and tips for prepping a manuscript for ebook publishing!

This post will mainly concern folks who are trying to take a manuscript from MSWord to Kindle format, but I’m sure it will be helpful to others as well.

*Ahem* Without further ado, I highly recommend at least poking around in the following places for information on formatting:

>>How to make your own Amazon Kindle ebook in just hours

>>Smashwords Style Guide

>>Kindle First Line Indents

>>Creating a Table of Contents

>>Steps to Clean Up MSWord and Publish to Kindle

>>Building Your Book for Kindle (linking page on Amazon)

>>Kindle Direct Publishing Simplified Formatting Guide

>>Kindle Formatting Guide with Pictures!

>>How to Format Ebooks for the Techno-Challenged

>>Kindle Boards Thread on Easy Formatting Tips

 

*Whew!* I have saved all of these links to my own bookmarks bar and I suggest that you find the ones that work for you and do the same. We indie self-publishers gotta stick together! I hope these were helpful. If not, I’m sure you can Google around and find the links that you need. Also, the Kindle Boards are full of great pieces of advice and people who can point you in the right direction!

 

Have a great Tuesday!
