I’ve had some questions about writing Kindle ebooks this week. I feel a bit silly saying: “It’s easy. Just write your ebook in your word processor and upload it to Amazon…”; but that just about covers it.
Yes, it’s really that simple. There’s not much involved. Years ago, when I was writing novels on an IBM Selectric, I used to worry about which type-ball to use, and proper formatting. That was much more complex. Especially retyping, when I had too many typos on the page, and all that White Out looked messy. I could never resist editing as I retyped a page, so I ended up rewriting five to ten pages because of typos.
Times have changed. If you can use a word processor, you can write a Kindle ebook. Type your ebook in a word processor which can save your material in MS Word DOC format, and upload it to Amazon.
I’ve just created video, which discusses writing Kindle ebooks.
See? It’s easy, as long as you avoid Word styles, and fancy formatting.
Enjoy writing – I love the Kindle ebook store, and Kindle Direct Publishing. It’s changing many writers’ lives, and of course it’s changing publishing forever.
