How to Format and Publish a Kindle Book

kdp1

My mom wrote a book. It’s a pretty good book – a short memoir about life in a small New England town, with laughs and tears and guest appearances by Steves Carell and Tyler. She’d had the manuscript professionally edited, so I offered to publish it on Kindle for her. I figured it had to be a simple matter of tweaking a little bit here and there, and just uploading it to Amazon’s Direct Publishing service.

I did that, and had a mess on my hands.
