It's not hard to find instructions for converting from Word to Kindle -- but these instructions are usually less helpful than they could be. Many, for example, proclaim that Word's HTML output requires extensive alteration and cleanup before submission.
 
This advice is misguided. Some who offer it have drawn their conclusions after simply choosing the wrong export option. Others fuss about a moderate amount of excess code, not realizing that it doesn't increase file size enough to matter or that the Kindle ignores it anyway.
 
Other instructions will imply the opposite: that conversion is straightforward and just what you would expect. Supposedly, as long as you start with a properly formatted Word document, you'll wind up with a well-formatted ebook. Well, it doesn't really work that way -- not without a few techniques for tricking or bullying the Kindle into doing what you want.
 
In this book, Aaron Shepard offers his own tips for moving your document from Word to Kindle. You'll see the results for yourself, as Aaron's book is produced with the same techniques described in this and his follow-up books, "Pictures on Kindle" and "HTML Fixes for Kindle."
 
/////////////////////////////////////////////////
 
Aaron Shepard is a foremost proponent of the new business of profitable self publishing, which he has practiced and helped develop since 1998. He is the author of "Aiming at Amazon," "POD for Profit," and "Perfect Pages," as well as two other books on Kindle formatting.

SAMPLE
 
On the Kindle, font choice is offered mostly for the sake of the Kindle user, not the publisher. The publisher's control of fonts is spotty at best. On some Kindles, you can't control them at all, and on others, you may wind up with a font entirely different from what you expect.
 
On most newer Kindles, the default font is Georgia, and it's a good choice for digital text -- strong and highly readable. So, I suggest you just make this the primary font in your Word document and leave it at that. (On older Kindles, this choice will be ignored in favor of the default Caecilia.)
 
One thing about Georgia, though, is that it has old-fashioned numerals, which may not work for technical writing. In that case, you might instead use Arial for all or part of your book. On newer Kindles, that will give you either Arial or Helvetica, while on older Kindles, it will be ignored. (When possible, this book uses Arial when possible to show HTML code, Web addresses, and such.)
 
Unfortunately, there are no other fonts available across all newer Kindles, other than the primitive Caecilia. So, there's not much point in venturing beyond Georgia and Arial unless you intend to embed a font -- which is beyond the scope of this book. (Though Amazon claims that Courier or "monospace" is available across all Kindles -- a claim repeated almost everywhere -- text specified as Courier displays on the Paperwhite as Helvetica.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent buy if you want your book on Kindle! 9 octobre 2012
Par Strat Goodhue- Author and publisher - Publié sur Amazon.com

There is so much conflicting information out there about how to get a book on Kindle. If you want a headache, try reading Kindle's own guidelines. If you want to do it the easy way, get this ebook. I was able to keep my book from looking like it was written on a 1970's word processor by following Aaron Shepards step-by-step directions. I highly recommend this short but to the point, ebook.

Getting prepared to e-pub my first novel, I found this little book to be very helpful. It brought up some issues that the first time publisher/writer might have to solve by trial and error otherwise and made the publishing a smoother process.
That said, some of the advice was unnecessary or outdated. I suspect the Kindle experience is being simplified every day. I see there are updates to this little manual and perhaps the old info has been updated.
For the price of 99 cents, this little manual is well worth purchasing if you are new to publishing on line. The writing is clear and the "voice" of the author is very pleasant and honest as he walks you through issues you may encounter when publishing for the first time. He's very clear as to what is included and not included in the book. I was grateful for the advice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Delivers Exactly as Promised 18 septembre 2011
Par Stephen N. Shields - Publié sur Amazon.com

Aaron Shepard's wonderful article delivers exactly what he promises: how to modify a Word doc's formatting so that it's easily read on a Kindle. I had a number of important reference documents that I wanted to put on my Kindle. After referencing Shepard's article, they look far better than when I tried to do the formatting myself. Recommended.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 EYES GLAZING OVER 22 juin 2013
Par Gordon Quinlan - Publié sur Amazon.com

I took blues harp lessons from Taj Majal many years ago. He was so advanced I literally couldn't understand what he was talking about.

Just so for this book. It is definitely not a step-by-step book for dummies. The author presumes you know what he knows.....a big mistake. Terms weren't explained. Locations of Word commands weren't indicated. I felt like a freshman who had wandered into a ph.d. program. My eyes starting glazing over around page 5.

If you're a first-timer, avoid this book.

Just like Perfect Pages - Aaron's book on formatting a Word doc for print - this book is awesome. The technicalities are more complex than one might imagine and Aaron has them mastered. For anyone who is proficient in Word but who is (like me) clueless about HTML, this is the book for you. Thank you Aaron - you are such a star!
