Reblog and featuring

Lately there has been quite a bit of chatter about the possibility of Amazon flagging books for spelling errors. Friend and author/editor, Diane Tibert, has written a great article on the importance of using the Kindle Previewer before downloading your book to self publish.

In her article, you will note that all ‘misspelled’ words are not always misspelled. You may, for example, be writing in British English, or perhaps using a new made up word for your fiction book which Amazon may not recognize. These types of ‘typo’ flags can be ignored.

 

Have a look at Diane’s article below for some detailed help on downloading your book and viewing it in the Kindle Previewer.

  2. Hi Debby,
    As you know, I am interested in publishing a book this year. I had heard good things about the Amazon Kindle program. I will be sure to keep your post to review when the time comes. Lately there have been criticisms about the program. Thanks to you and your guest author for the heads up.

    1. Hi Janice. I’d highly recommend publishing with Amazon. As you know, there will always be criticism for one thing or another. It’s a matter of learning the ins and outs and what part of the program is best suited to your needs. Amazon is the best platform for all new Indie publishers. 🙂

  3. Very helpful – once again!

    Incidentally, I am not receiving email notifications from blogs I subscribe to so have contacted WP about the problem. They said problem would be addressed in 24-72 hours. We’ll see! ;-/

  4. Good to know. Thanks for sharing, Debby.

  5. Very interesting article. I’m glad that Kindle is taking steps to ensure that self-publishing books are in good shape before publishing. Although I still recommend that everyone publishing a book use a professional editor. Thanks for sharing! 😀 xx

    1. Absolutely agreed. Editing is very important. 🙂

  6. Thanks for reblogging this. I thought it sounded familiar and I had seen it on Diane’s site. Good to be reminded.

    1. You’re welcome. Diane always has great up to date info about kindle issues. 🙂

  7. Thank you for sharing this post, Debby. This is certainly something I have added to my check list of things I do when I publish.

    1. My pleasure to share Diane. 🙂

  8. As always you highlight super useful posts another bookmark

    1. I’m sure you’ll find this useful when it comes to this part of publishing for you. 🙂

  9. Another great article shared. Thanks Debbie. Always helpful.

    1. Thanks so much for visiting Adam. I presume you’re pretty well versed with the previewer. 🙂
