About This Class

This is the class in which the rubber hits the road...

In this, the second class in the Amazon Self-publishing (ASP) series, you'll learn how to format your manuscript using Microsoft Word for publication on Amazon Kindle.  This is the first of a pair of courses to dealing with publishing on Amazon Kindle, the second being how to actually publish your book through the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) web based interface.

I'd recommend that you pause the class after each lesson in order to perform the task just described using your own manuscript.  By the time you finish the class you'll have a formatted manuscript.

Ask questions in the Community if you get stuck.

Best of luck and I'll see you in the classroom,

---Brian
