Amazon's Kids' Book Creator: How To by Olivia Kiernan | Writing.ie - 0 views

  •  
    "To get started on your picture book, create a new and empty folder to store your files, you will need this later. I have called mine 'New Folder for Kid's Book'. Go to Amazon website and download the Kids' Book Creator program from Amazon's Website for Free: Open the program and select 'Create a new Kid's Book'. A screen taking you through instructions on how to use the program will appear. Once you have read through it, click 'Continue'. Fill in details of your book: title, author name, publisher (optional), language then browse your computer for the new and empty folder that you created earlier. Click 'Continue'. Select whether you'd like a landscape or portrait orientation. This might be influenced by whether you have your text on a separate page to your illustrations. I chose portrait, which again made the process easier as I did not need to worry about ordering left and right facing pages. Once you've made your selection, click 'Continue'. You then have the choice to upload your book in its entirety as a pdf (if you already have one prepared) or you can select to upload it page by page. Uploading page by page is easy and allows you to correct any page order mistakes as you go. Once you select the 'page by page' option you can upload your cover image immediately. Then the fun starts. Click 'Start Adding Pages'. You are now in the main program where you can build your book. Hopefully you have all your page files saved individually, including dedication pages and copyright pages, together with back matter (that is information that you may want to relay to the reader about you or your illustrator). To begin, click 'Add Pages'. Select your first page from your files.Your page should fill the display view box. Ensure that the page is highlighted blue (on the left of your screen) before adding next page so that they display in the correct order Continue adding your pages until you have uploaded all. Then from the main menu
