I'm a newbie and I want to submit a file for Kindle. The source code is Word 2003 and it converts beautifully to PDF. The file has about 288 pages with tables and pictures. Since I have little experience with HTML, converting the file to HTML could be a horror show. [b]Question:[/b] Can I use my PDF file or must I do a conversion to HTML?
I suggest you follow the kreelanwarrior's (M. Hicks) advice. I have his book in front of me and the man knows what he's talking about.
These community forum's are a drag because you get conflicting advice and chances are, you don't know who to believe. Whether you're a newbie or somewhat experienced with software applications, I believe it's important to take the time and dish out a few dollars to get advice from people who have been there, done that. I found each of the following books easy to follow and informative at varying levels:
[b]Under $10: [/b] M. Hicks' [u][/u]Publish Your Book on the Amazon Kindle[u][/u] and R. Benjamin's [u][/u]Publish Anything on Amazon Kindle[u][/u].
[b][/b]Under $20 (and more detailed):[b][/b] J. Tallent's [u][/u] Kindle Formatting (The Complete Guide).[u][/u]
