Upload and Preview Book Content

To upload your book content file:
  1. From your Bookshelf, select "Edit book content" from the ellipsis menu ("...") next to your book.
  2. Under the Manuscript header, click "Upload your manuscript."
  3. Browse to your book content file on your laptop or desktop computer.
  4. Select your book content file and click "Open."
  5. We'll start converting your file to Kindle.
You'll see a confirmation message when your file upload and conversion are complete.

Under the next step, Preview Your Book, choose from the Online Previewer or Downloadable Preview Options to see an approximation of how your eBook will look on various Kindle devices. The preview won't display product details such as title and author name, but those details will be included in your eBook when it's published on the Kindle Store.

The Online Previewer is quicker and easier and emulates how most books will appear on Kindle devices and apps, iPad, and iPhone*.
  • Tablet mode: Preview how your book might look on large devices like Apple iPad, Android  tablets, and Fire tablets.
  • Phone mode: Preview how your book might look on phones like Apple iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S7, and others.
  • E-Reader mode: Preview how your book might look on Kindle e-Readers such as Paperwhite, Voyage, and Oasis.

*Online Previewer supports enhanced typesetting features when available using any of these three devices.

To download your book preview file, click "Preview on your computer" or "Preview on your Kindle device" under Downloadable Preview Options and follow the steps to download your file. Then, you can transfer your book file to your Kindle with a USB cable, or you can preview your book file on your computer with our Kindle Previewer tool.

Important: If you're uploading a textbook with interactive features, those features will not display in the Online Previewer or the Downloadable Previewer. You'll need to use the Kindle Textbook Creator previewer, or download the beta version of Kindle Previewer 3 (Beta), which will also allow you to see how your book will look with enhanced typesetting conversion.
