I have finished another kindle book which is for those who don’t have Microsoft Word and yet still want to be able to write a kindle book. Open Office is free to download and therefore many people now use that software. I certainly started off with Open Office and although I managed to obtain Microsoft Word fairly recently I have to admit that I still prefer Open Office in many ways!

There are plenty of discussions online about the difficulty of uploading a kindle book using Open Office and yet it can be done and this book is proof!. So I decided to write a manual showing exactly how to do this with lots of screen shots.

  1. Hi Kay, I am an open office user helping my wife to publish her first book on KDP.

    I like the look of your book as I have many formatting issues.

    My only question is, since your book is dated 2014, is it still relevant to the current editions of open office and KDP?

    Kind regards, Mike
