I've become a best selling author in different topics, and one of them is in a music platform. Here's one of my Kindle music book. Actually, this book was uploaded on Jennifer's 2014. In less than three months, it became number one best seller in piano music. As you can see that, but received a few five star reviews, and he's one of them written by a belly. I don't know her at all, she says. Fantastic book with easy step by step guide to reading music and more.

I'm gonna give you an overview of the entire course. I'm gonna hand over the complete Kindle formatting skill to you using some easy to remember 10 Kindle for mating formula. I call this Kate F F Kindle for mating formula. The 1st 1 is M. S W. We could use Microsoft. Word is, this is the most popular and also it's easy to convert into kindle format. The 2nd 1 is seven Q t. What does that stand for? It stands for seven quick tips in preparing your word document. You need to know what your award so that you can for medical easily and not get tight down with all these nitty gritty issues in the formatting so that you'll put would be accepted by Amazon. The 3rd 1 is 6 a.m. They're six. Must you need to have in the kingdom poke in order? Look professional. 4th 1 is teal c. You need to have an active clickable table of contents. The 5th 1 is K. P. S. The size of a Kindle page is very different from other pages that we normally use in Albert documents. The six formula is the h t M l. You need to know how to confer the word document into HTML. The 7th 1 is P. R. C. This is a Kindle book format, and we could use him will be pocket to comfort the document into P. I'll see the 8th 1 is Moby. This is another Kindle book format. You can also upload a Moby under the Kindle Amazon platform. The nice is I N g is the image cover. You need to know the size, the dimension of the image cover toe upload under the Kindle platform. The 10th formula is KDP. I'm gonna show you the entire process So you know how to upload the book under the KDP and also preview your Kindle book. 3. Tip 1: MSW - Always .doc: This is the first formula and sw use Microsoft Word to create your document. Microsoft Word is a great tool to use because it's extremely easy to form it them into kindle books. So always start with a fresh document. Don't try to convert the pdf to Microsoft Word. Start a fresh all the time and you won't have much difficulty in the formatting If you try to confer the pdf to Microsoft word there, too many issues are solved and it's not worth the time to do that. So after here for in the document, when you save your file here, file safe s always safe as Doc D o c. Don't try to save it as out e f or even deal See ex because they don't convert well to kindle. You know what? If we're documenting and for it well, to kindle, you must save your file s dark D o C 4. Tip 2: Right Font & Font Size: for the seven quick tips, you need to learn these seven tips as you prepare your manuscript. Invert document. Tip number one. You need to have to write, farmed and also the right fond size. Don't use fancy phones because you want to convert well into the Kindle reader, therefore, phones that you can use you can use. Verdana the one that I have right here in front of you. It's my music book. This is for Donna and also good fun Size would be 12 point. Besides, verdana weaken juice times New Roman. This also looks good on the Kindle reader, and also, if one size 12 point you can also use Georgia. There's another low stood and kindle and foreign size. Also 12 point another. When you want to try is Calibri. This also looks good and use font size 12 point. Try not to go fancy and use something like calligraphy like this. It doesn't look good on Kindle, and for the headings right here you can either bold it or you can change it to 14. A little skirt if you want to make a little bit larger. 16 also is good, but please don't go beyond 18 because it would look too large and the Kindle reader and they were out of proportion 5. Tip 3: Why Page Breaks: for tip number two always make a page break whenever you start a new chapter heading. The reason is that Kendall does not work on page numbers at all, and the pages change depending on the kind of Franz that really chooses. So putting a page break after each chapter will help the reader to no bigger chapters a section off so that they don't just go on and on and on. Over here, you can tell that I have a page break for each of the section about the ulcer. Here's this one page and the introduction and a chapter one, Chapter two, Chapter three, Chapter two here might go on to pages for the Kindle reader. It doesn't matter, but as long as I put it page break. You see, I have a patient brick. As long as I put a page break here in the Kindle greater chapter three, we have a new section. Take a look at this section here, notice I have no page break after sweet point to the reading just goes on And then over here, there no patient break. I show you sit in the page breaks It just goes on to 3.4 and a new page break to chapter four. This is not good at all. I purposely did this to show you what? What happened? If you don't do page break, the document was just run continuously. And this is not a good experience for those who read from the Kindle. So what you need to do is you do peixe break. I will put my cursor here. Maybe our turned this 200% so you can see it easier. So how do I do? Page breaks, Use control. Enter. And there you go. I want to pay sprint here, so I just control enter. I'm not gonna the pace break. And here I want a patient break a chapter four, I click on control. Enter Put this back to 50% so that you can see a little bit more clearly. See how nice it looks now 3.2, I put it. Pace break. Turn this on. You see a pace break and there's 3.3 the section page break. So that in the Kindle reader, when they read 3.4, it will be the beginning of a new page for them. Pace break and enter Chapter four. This is very important. If you want your reader t ever enjoyable experience reading your book. There are sections off. They look very nicely. I always have page breaks after a section. This is why I guess so many of these good reviews because it gives him a good experience Page break here paced right here. Always remember to do a page break before the next section to press a control and turkey is a short cut. If you want to know how to do in the word, you click on insert break and then there's a page break and then you click, OK, and then you get a page break. 6. Tip 4: Use Easy Layout Feature: tip number three Use E C. Layout features. What do I mean? The following Microsoft Word features confront very wont to conduct books, for example use bold. Okay, You want emphasize something, Use bold. That was very well. Oh, if you want to. Underlying this also was very well the underlying feature. If you want to make something stand out, you can use I tell it. I tell it is also very good. So use thes features bold, I tell it and also the underlying for the titles It's best to use heading Okay, so you can come down here and look for the heading one heading to also works or heading three. Another feature is if you want to intend something, don't use the tap used to indented feature this one. Yeah, this also was very well. But don't over do your indentation. Otherwise you're too much white space. So indentation also was very well so used These features bold I telling underlying the heading and also the indentation. These are easily or features that will convert very well to kindle books 7. Tip 5: The 8 Features you must AVOID: tip number four. This tip is very important because I'm gonna show you a few features that you must avoid. If you want to have a clean formatting for the Kindle books first you must afford using bullet points. He's a bullet Points don't use bullet points because they did not translate well to the Kindle books. What you need to do is take away the fold. It's I believe it like that. Or you can use the number system. Just number it like this. And this would translate very well to the Kindle book. And here you might want it. Teoh, move this over like this. So don't use bullet points. Use the numberless to list out the items. The second thing is that do not use head of footer Notice I ever headed up here and I have a foot it down here. So what you need to do is go to the header and footer. Check out ahead. It did eat that and go down to the footer. Take up this part and delete it. Do not use header and footer for your kindle Popes because they do not appear it all kindle . Polls do not meet them. So I show you. Here is this. Delete this and you come down to the footer, Click the footer and just did eat this and there's no head and food. And now third thing is, you see that I have patient numbers in this document. You don't need page numbers when you're on the Kindle book because kindle polls don't go by page numbers. So again, you need to go into the word to delete that patient numbers. Here. I just delete that. And there you go. Now I don't have page numbers. Is a clean document without header and footer and without the patient numbers up to 50% for you. See, this is what you want in your document. No headers, no food is and no page numbers. The fourth thing is tragedy A voice special Characters What do I mean by special characters ? Like So try to avoid these special characters if you can. If you want to in debt something do not use tap used the indentation up here. It works much better with the indentation. Do not use tables here. This one is the table. I did a table and I did it print screen, and I put it into a J pet file. So don't use the table up here in the root feature like this, because thes don't work very well for kindle formatting. No matter how you try to resize this didn't work well at all. Fill in the table, do it print, screen and change it into a J pet file. And the last one is easy to avoid is if you have graphs and charts. Do what I do here and that is Draw the graph in the chart. Do a print screen. Change it into a J pet file. This is Jay Pet File here. Insert it back into the document as a J pet file. 8. Tip 6: Pictures - Use IMG not Graphics: tip number five for images. Kindle prefers images at high resolution. So if you have images formerly images either as Jeff BMP, J Pet, O P and G J Pet files work very well for Kindle Take a look at these two images. This one is a J pet file, but this one is not. This one is done with M s Art and Graphics. There's a slight difference between thes two. Sometimes I have clients setting these Microsoft ardent graphics to me for the images. And sometimes it will go beyond the patient like this. So even if I try to resize it into the document in the Kindle reader, it won't appear like that at all. It will move around, and sometimes in the candle read it. It would just look like this, so don't use it. Microsoft and graphic feature into the document. Always change them into the J pat Fire like this because with a J pat file, you can always size it down If you want to. All you can make it bigger and they will look exactly like this in the Kindle reader. I show you some of my graphics here on my boat because in the piano, Paul, I need a lot of graphics. See if this is also in J pet file. I can make it closure. Oh, I can make a smaller. And it would be exactly like this in the Kindle reader. This one is also in J P. File. Samos this one and say Miss this one all my images need to be in shape. It files if I want. I can make it larger. I can make it smaller like this and thes j pit files convert very well to the Kindle books . Here's another one. I can't do it like that. I can make Smalley so it's easy to adjust. If you have images, put them into J pet file. He's a little one here. I can't make it smaller like this. This is actually a table. I can't make it like this A smaller Okay, that's it for the images 9. Tip 7: Importance of Spell Check: This next tip is very obvious. But most people forget it because they're in a hurry to finish the book and they want to upload under Amazon. After you finish a document, remember to do spell check. People can request refund of Kindle books that they have purchased within seven days. Mm. Biasi typos in your tax. They were definitely asked for refunds, and that had happened a few times to my clients. So ensure that your book is professionally done. Remember to always use the spell check tool is very easy. You go up to the tools, and then you click on the spelling and grammar and into a spell check of the whole document . Because nothing is more irritating than just see all the spelling errors in your Kindle books. All right, see you in the next video. 10. Tip 8: Navigate with ACTIVE TOC: this tip is that you need to have a table of content in your book. Kindle devices do not go by pages because Kindle content is re sizable and the number of pages within the book changes as the text scales. So you need to have a clickable active tipple, content for readers to easily navigate from one chapter to the next. In your book, here is my table of content. Here, change this back to 100% so that you can see a bit more. Okay, I have to say about the off the page and then a tape of content. And whenever you click on these links, it would take you there. This is a table of contents page save. I click on this. It would go to my about the author and say, If I want to go to Chapter eight, I click on this and you would take with a Chapter eight. Some readers like to go back to the table of content to click on the chapters, Save one to click on Chapter six. Our piano techniques have patterns quickly, and it would take your right to that chapter later on. In the course I'll show you how to make the table of content. It's very easy. You need to have a patient with an active, clickable table of content. 11. Tip 9: The 6M in all your Kindle Books: he's at the sixth em six must. But you need to have in the Professional Kindle book. First thing is, you need a title page for the title page. You don't need a e cover because the EQ of risky before met into the Kindle book, all you need is to put in your title. You put in your subtitle, the author or the publisher, and then you can provide a website length there so that people can click onto the link. The second thing you need is a copyright page on the copyright page. You can just make it very simple. It doesn't have to be very long, and then come the table of contents. The table of contents should have all your chapter headings. I've created 18 chapters here, so if you have 18 chapter contents is Chapter should begin on a new page. And then at the end you share two more pages of the above the Author page. You can write more about yourself or put in your Facebook links through the pages linked in . You could put all your other links here and in the last page of Patient Resource is where you might want to refer to you as a products, your blocks or any other resource is that you want to take people to, so make sure you can depose, have thesis six EMS title page, copyright page, table of contents and then all the content chapters. Here I have 18 chapters and then about the also page and then re sources. If you want, you can put the about the author page above Chapter one that can also do, and they leave the resource page to the last. Okay, that's it. See you in the next video. 12. Tip 10: TOC - Use Heading Style: in this video, we're going to learn how to do a clickable table of contents. This is my book, and I'm gonna do the table of contents on this page here. So there two steps. The first step is you need to do the heading for each chapter, and then after the heading, we going to do a clickable table of contents with hyper link on this page. So first, let's do the headings here at my pages. And I wanted make a table of contents to all the different chapters. I want an about the author page. So I hide like this and I come up here style and I click on heading one. That's how you need to do. I come to introduction. I highlight this and they come here and you're heading one in a later video. I'm gonna show you a short cut because you knew learning this. I want to show you this long process first so that you know what's going on, Cipto one, I come appear to the style and I look for heading one and the highlight this I go into chapter to highlight this heading one and the chapter three come up here heading one 3.2. Is this some heading? I still want this in the tape of content. So I put heading one here and 3.3 teddy. One three point full. Heading one. See, It's very fast and quick. Once you're very organized, you need to organize yourself so that you don't confuse yourself. Chapter five. This is why it's important that you have beheading as a new page. Check the seven. And this way you will see a document clearly. All in one flash, Chapter eight, Chapter nine, 9.2, Chapter 10 Chapter 11. 11.2, Chapter 12 12.2 and then Chapter 13 and my resource page. All right. 13. Tip 11: Make hyperlinks to your TOC: Okay, You come up to insert here to reference and then down to index and tables, you click on this, and then you could put the table of contents this tap here, you could on click this because you don't want the patient Empress to be shown. And here you do want to use hyperlinks instead of patient numbers. So this box needs to be clicked, and then you click. Ok, there you go. Here's a table of contents. I can change it to front 14 if I want. Missy, if it looks good. Yeah, well, maybe it's better to leave it as 12. So are these air hyperlink now? So maybe I will have introduction here and at the resource is like this. Change this to 100% save. I want to go to chapter two. I just click on this that you go Chapter two. So making an active, clickable table of contents. It's very easy. It only takes a few minutes. All right, that's it for table of contents. I'll see you in the next video. 14. Tip 12: Kindle Page Size & Margins: in this video, I'm going to show you how to set up the Kindle page size give you want to. You can set up the kingdom page size right away and use that for your document. The Kindle page size is different from a normal document. As you can see, it's much smaller. He come to file, pay set up, you go to paper and you're going to click on the custom size because you write your own inches. For the wist, it is 5.39 inches. For the height, it is 7.91 inches. So keep that in and click OK, and you would get this page size like what you see in front of you. And I want to show you something because back to here to page set up, we will look at the margins for the margins. We said Everything is Cyril Cyril Inch, zero inch and Syria inch bottom and right also, Syria inch. Why? Because you want to Kim to talk. You want to look good in the Kindle reader so you can use up all the spaces without all these margins space. But in the actual Kindle, you will see a margin there. Let me show you an example. When you said everything is cereal, your document look like business would document their no margins.
