Over the past few months we’ve worked with KDP authors to improve Kindle Create, our formatting tool that helps you turn your manuscript into a file that will look good on Kindle devices and apps. We’re grateful for your input, and happy to announce that Kindle Create is now available for everyone.

Kindle Create helps you format your finished manuscript into a beautiful Kindle book by:

  • Automatically finding chapter titles and creating a Kindle table of contents

  • Giving you visual themes designed to suit the genre of your eBook

  • Letting you preview your eBook so you can see what your readers will see—and make the changes you want

  • Making the formatting process go more quickly

    Kindle Create works with .doc and .docx files exported from any source, whether it be Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, Google Docs or other applications. Kindle Create currently supports English documents only. It also supports creation of interactive textbooks from PDFs. Kindle Create is available for PC (Windows 7 and above) and MacOS (10.11 and above).

    As you work with Kindle Create, you should save your work frequently so you have a backup copy of your file.
