Kindle Format

In prep for the Alpha readers I decided that I would now take the time to figure out how to format the book into a Kindle eBook ready for self publishing.

I did a little Googleing and saw some instructions. First I downloaded and installed two apps. KindleGen and KindlePreview.

KindleGen is a simple, line-mode, conversion tool that runs in a DOS Command window with parameters. Super easy.

KindlePreview is a Windows App that is a Kindle simulator that runs on Windows. It shows your how the book will look on various devices. I already see formatting modifications I will need to make.

--Fun Stuff!!
