I use a simple system. Mark up the ms as follows:  A = awesome, B = boring, C = confusing. That's it. Then it's my job to figure out how to fix B and C.

Have you tried Kindle Previewer?

You can use it to create a mobi

And yes it does!  :banana:

But it doesn't put the cover in, so its not a complete file as the customer will see.

Again, the key word there is misleading. Put a cover on that is deliberately designed to get a one click because it looks like another popular book and Amazon will come after you if readers complain/return books. Bare chested covers are such a trope and Romance readers are generally savvy enough to know that not all bare chested covers belong to one author/pen.

what will naked chest covers do? they are all exactly the same.

Is Amazon trying to put photo sites out of business? One of my romances uses an image Iíve seen on at least five other books in the past couple of years.

That's not what the guideline says at all. It says covers that could be misleading because they resemble another book. It would be like creating a book cover similar enough to Harry Potter that someone just glancing at the cover might mistake it for a Harry Potter book. The key word there is misleading not same images.

I have no insight on that. This place is about the only place I pick up publishing/Amazon news these days. :)

If there's a change in the guidelines, that's usually a flag that they've been firing warning shots and about to launch the cannons.

I haven't been hearing anything about covers getting dinged, but that's not to say it isn't happening. I just found it weird to see it now and not part of the original document.

I sure don't think that was there the last time I read the guidelines. Kind of makes sense that they would add it but wow, that's a f*ck up waiting to happen.
