Student Review

Linda Hewitt

"Ian is interested in the subject and he shows this. He is also knowledgeable and is happy to share his knowledge. Video and sound quality is very clear.

I have just finished the course and recommend it to anyone thinking of publishing on Kindle. I opened up a document at the start of the course and then followed the steps Ian did in each lesson - this cemented what he was teaching."


If your book has poor formatting, your readers will complain. This will hurt your sales.

Three of the most common problems:

- Difficult to read text

- Pictures you can't see

- Table of contents not clickable

Also, you need to make it look professional. This course shows you how.

My name is Ian Stables. I help self-published authors become successful.

I almost never published a book on Amazon. All the instructions looked so complicated.

I eventually did discover an easy way to create a Kindle book. However, my problems were not over.

I couldn't get all my headings to look right. My images were often not clear on Kindle devices. My table of contents were not clickable. My text didn't look as professional as published books.

I did eventually learn how to do all these things. The problem was it took so much time to format my books when I had written them.

The I discovered a solution. When I create a Kindle book now, most of the formatting is already done.

It is important your Kindle book is readable, looks professional, and readers can clearly see your images. Not only that, but your table of contents needs to be clickable. (A requirement of Amazon.)

Formatting and publishing a Kindle book is now straightforward for me. Let me make it easy for you as well.

I'm going to show you...

- How to have most of your formatting done for you before writing a new book.

- The ideal font and text size.

- The page size that looks best.

- How to format a professional title page.

- A ready to use copyright and disclaimer.

- The way to make your headings look good and stand out.

- Links to include that improve your results.

- How to format text like the professionals.

- How to make quotes stand out.

- The correct format for quote sources.

- a no problem way to insert pictures.

- How to easily create a clickable table of contents.

- The best way to convert to Kindle.

Let me show you the easy and fast way to format your Kindle book.

"We should always continue to improve."

"I love to find better, easier, faster, and more efficient ways to do
things. I then like to help others by sharing what I've discovered."

"You can do anything, within reason. You just need to know how."

I want to help as many people as possible with what they want to improve in their lives. I have done that through my writing since 2001.

Would you like to make nonfiction book writing easy? This is what my first course, Write In Steps, does.

More courses to come.

My history:

I gave my first talk when I was aged twelve. This was in front of over one hundred people. I followed a program designed to improve public speaking and teaching.

I learned computing and went on to develop a computer system to run a business in herbs and spices. This was designed to allow complete novices to generate customer orders and delivery notes. It then allows the finished order to be processed and then invoiced.

I'm telling you this because I want you to understand something. I have always been keen on learning new things. Not only that, but I like to make things work better. So when I found writing books hard, I started to improve my system. The result is that I now have a system that is streamlined and far more efficient. It allows me to produce quality books that readers gain great benefit.

Part of my innovative mentality means that I am always reading about new ideas. I have also learned a lot by viewing instructional videos on Udemy, Youtube, and the like. There's always something new to learn. I take the best from everything and re-assemble it into a better improved process. I temper it with my own personal experience. Continue to make further improvements. Finally, as I like to help others, I teach this knowledge on via books and now video.

I started writing content for the internet in 2001. In 2012 I wrote my first Kindle book, which was published on Amazon.

I have had several best-sellers. My first one was The Easy Way To Clean. It remained my best-selling title for around two years. I currently have more than fifty titles published.

My aim is to help as many people as possible with my experience and knowledge. I also aim to encourage many others to share their knowledge.
