eBook Manuscript Formatting Guide

This page describes how to turn a manuscript written in Microsoft Word into a file ready to be uploaded to KDP. The information we give is specific to the 2016 version of Word, but the steps are similar in most versions. Depending on your book, some steps may be unnecessary--e.g., if your book doesn't have images.
