Anyone used Kindle Create for a children's book?
« on: July 12, 2021, 05:11:42 AM »
For my previous books I just uploaded my Word document and made my own chapter contents and inserted illustrations etc. But that was a number of years ago. I'm considering using the Kindle Create for my next two books, but don't want to give myself more work by learning how to use it.  :icon_rolleyes: Does anyone have any advice on possible pitfalls, or is it easy-peasy?  :)

Jan, a friend of mine used a kindle kid's book creator to make a photobook and she said it was super-easy: https://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1002979921

Kindle Create is very easy to use. Stuff isn't very customizable, but it's hard to mess stuff up in it if you just go along with the program and do things the way it wants you to.
Don't rush me.

That's good to know.  :)
