If you're looking to format your completed manuscript in a few clicks, try Kindle Create. Kindle Create is a free standalone application that helps you automatically transform your completed manuscript into a beautifully formatted Kindle eBook. Once you import a manuscript in the .doc/.docx format, Kindle Create will automatically detect chapter titles and add styling to them. In addition, you can format individual paragraphs using styles like first paragraph with drop caps, block quotes, poem and others.
If you prefer formatting in Microsoft Word, Kindle Create Add-in for Microsoft Word provides the styling capabilities of Kindle Create in a familiar Microsoft Word interface. You can format individual paragraphs by specifying styles such as chapter title, first paragraph with drop caps, block quotes, poem and others.
Both tools allow you to change the look and feel of your book by using book themes such as Classic, Modern, Amour and Cosmos. In addition, you can preview how your book would look on Tablets, Phones and Kindle E-readers using the preview functionality in these tools. Both tools create a Kindle Table of Contents for your book from the chapter titles, helping readers navigate your book easily.
We have designed these tools to work separately. We would like you to try both tools to see what suits your publishing needs the best but please know that you cannot move modified files between tools. Whichever tool or tools you use, we'd love your feedback on these tools, so that we can continue to improve them in this Beta period .
