Did you finish writing your book only to find out you have NO IDEA how to get it on Amazon? So did I!

If you’re like me, you have too many things competing for your time, but you somehow managed to find the time to complete your manuscript. You’re finally ready to be an Amazon author. But now what? How do you take that great Word document on your hard drive to the Amazon bestseller lists?

You have a vague idea of what’s required. You’ve seen guides about formatting your eBook but they seem like they’re written in ancient Macedonian. Besides, even if you knew how to go about formatting your eBook, who has the time? It was hard enough to find time to write the darn thing.

Face it. You have the will, but not the time or the skill. Not yet!

I was in the same situation only a few short years ago and I painstakingly taught myself how to format my own books. Now, I’ve taken the lessons learned and put them in an easy to follow guide that will allow you to easily format your eBook in seven simple one-hour sessions.

Step-by-step guide for the not-so-tech savvy!

“I’m writing my first book but was very intimidated by the formatting process. I’ve looked around for people to format it for me, but it’s hard to know who will treat it with the time and energy I hope that it deserves. Now that I’ve found this book, I realize that I can do it myself! I am not tech savvy, but Hugh has done a great job at explaining step-by-step how to format your own ebook for kindle. This is a great resource for anyone looking to turn their ebook into a kindle success, without having to drop lots of money on someone to format it! Thanks Hugh!”

What People Are Saying About Seven Days to Kindle

"Practical, Actionable Advice."

“I was pleasantly surprised at the practical, actionable items that this author demonstrated to take the overwhelm out of the “other side” of writing a book – the production. This is not as easy as you may think, and so having some direction on how to get it done is invaluable. A definite “must-have” for any new or even not-so-new kindle author as a check and balance to ensure that you’re getting it right, every time.” Nix – Amazon Reviewer

"Easy to follow."

“Great book and easy to follow for someone who knows nothing about formatting. The book is broken into three sections – preparation, seven hours to publication, and final steps. Screen shots are included to make following the steps easier. If you want to save money by formatting your own book, this is the book you need. Why hire someone else when you can do it yourself.” Frances T – Amazon Reviewer

"I actually look forward to formatting my next book after reading this book!"

When I started reading this book, it became clear to me, it’s not as complicated as I’ve made it out to be. All you need is a good teacher and good instructions, something this author has down to the t. The author guides you through the process of setting up a Kindle ebook in Word, step-by-step (and pretty much everyone has Word). It’s a very clear, to the point, no fluff ebook formatting bible, without leaving out anything important. I’m really surprised that the author has managed to pack all the information you need in just 62 pages. I’m not overwhelmed anymore, and I actually look forward to formatting my next book. Now I can throw away all the other software I thought I needed to format a book, and the thought of hiring someone to do it for me, is definitely gone. I can tell you that, as long as you know how to open Word and write a letter, following this book, you’ll have no problems setting up your Kindle book yourself, in no time, frustration free! Thor – Amazon Reviewer

"A very clear, detailed, and helpful guide!"

“Hugh has done a terrific job laying out the process of publishing on Kindle! He goes into incredible detail, doesn’t assume specialized knowledge, and includes plenty of screenshots to make clear everything along the way. This guide is accessible to everyone, and the first-time publisher as well as someone with more experience will find useful tips here. Definitely well-worth the price!” Joshua Klur – Amazon Reviewer

"This is the most comprehensive and thorough guide for publishing ..."

“This is the most comprehensive and thorough guide for publishing on kindle. I’m not at all tech oriented and was feeling very anxious about formatting and uploading my kindle book. This guide outlines the tools in a very organized step-by-step way, making the job so much easier. It is a must have for kindle authors!” Real Food Forager – Amazon Reviewer

"A must-have for any Kindle author."

“If you are a newcomer to the Kindle publishing arena and struggling with how to format your just finished manuscript, then this book is for you! I would venture to guess that it also has a few nuggets for seasoned authors as well. Formatting is extremely important to have your ebook look polished and professional once uploaded to Amazon. We have spent hours, weeks and maybe even months coddling our baby so we want to get it right! This author has taken the “mystery” out of formatting with detailed step-by-step instructions all the way up to hitting “publish”. A very helpful tool indeed!.” Debra B – Amazon Reviewer
