Paperback Manuscript Resources (Beta)

How can we help you format your manuscript?

Give me tools to make it easier

Try Kindle Create Add-In (PC only)*, a free formatting tool for authors working in Microsoft Word on paperbacks with the trim sizes 6" x 9" (15.24 x 22.86 cm) and 8.5" x 11" (21.59 x 27.94 cm).

Not working on a PC or need a different trim size? Try our templates.

Give me the basics so I can do it myself

Check out our guide. It includes the essential steps for turning a manuscript written in Word into a PDF ready to be submitted to KDP.

See all of our paperback formatting resources.

*This is an early beta version of the Add-in intended for text-heavy books. You might experience issues formatting books with images and tables.
