    Okay... so I decided to halt all my other SEO/IM ventures until I have a roof over my head. I have a job now... (low paying, but it will get me where I need to be eventually) So I want to spend my free time writing kindle books. (I now realize its what I want to do... not writing kindle books... but just writing in general)

    I heard its hard to write kindle books... is that true? Someone told me you have to do certain things in Microsoft word... Not pressing "enter" for new paragraphs... using "page breaks" and so on...
    Can anyone please elaborate on things to do and not to do when writing in microsoft word?

    Also I heard covers for the book give people headaches? any information on that?

    Thanks guys!

    You just need to format here and there, but nothing that spectacular. You can write as you would usually write your book and just press Page Break between chapters, and also formating the Title, Chapter names and the regular text with the right format - using the options like Heading 1, Heading 2, Normal, etc. I cannot remember now. I have a template I give to my writers to whom I outsource the books. The template is done by me, I followed a guide. So it's not that hard, I knew nothing about Kindle formating before creating that template. Anyone can learn how to do it. And Amazon accepted all books published with my template, so everybody can learn how to do it

    Sure, just send me your e-mail at PM. It's made for non-fiction books, but it would work for fiction books also, it has active Table of Content too, so all you need to do is plug some text in the pages, press few buttons and publish. :)
