Hi Chris,

I actually have a Kindle eBook maker that systematically does all what Amazon requires. Your product has some more additions. Let me know if review copy is available?

Would love to try this if you still have review copy.

OK I have tested the software and here are my thoughts:

Book Builder is web based which means there is nothing to install on your computer, which means you can use it no matter what operating system you are using. Awesome !!

The user interface is very clean, crisp and intuitive. Theres also a link in the menbers area to a tutorial video if needed, but honestly a 5 year old could use this software.

The software itself is very easy to use. You just add your chapter titles, images and text and you have the ability to reorder/add/delete chapters with ease.

Then you just export your book and the software formats your book perfectly for kindle

I have used kinstant formatter in the past to format my kindle books but I think I like this software more.

Book Builder also represents excellent value for money as its a one off payment.

The software works exactly as described and I will continue to use it.

Great Job chris

Suggestion: I would love to see the ability to upload files such as .docx and also for the software to be able to export a PDF file and/or an epub file. Just a thought.

Will this work with image heavy books? I've tried other software and the images were always out of place. Also I noticed this outputs a zip file. I though Kindle books had to be uploaded in .mobi format?

Yes, our software will work perfectly for books with heavy images, no problem. Images will always be exactly where you want them. The reason why in the past the books you uploaded had images out of place was because you were uploading a MOBI file.

Kindle supports several different format types, those include:

Word (DOC or DOCX)
HTML (ZIP, HTM, or HTML)
MOBI (MOBI)
ePub (EPUB)
Rich Text Format (RTF)
Plain Text (TXT)
Adobe PDF (PDF)

Some of these formats are certainly better than others. But only one of them is going to be the best. The reason why there is a difference is because when you upload a document, no matter what format you start with, the document is going to be converted into HTML.

If you are uploading HTML to start with there is no conversion, your document goes into Kindle and looks exactly like it did before you uploaded. If on the other hand you are using some other format, you are taking a chance on how the conversion is going to handle your document.

The first Kindle book I did I uploaded Word file and spent hours trying to figure out why the spacing after the bullet points was perfect on a Kindle device but totally messed up on an Ipad. I also could not figure out why my paragraphs where in block format on some devices and indented on others, as well as some other formatting errors.

Bottom line, unless the book you are uploading is in HTML (ZIP) format your book looks messed up on possibly all or at least some reading devices.

This is why I made this software, so you can create a perfect Kindle ready book in just a couple of minutes that looks perfect in all Kindle reading devices.

A disclaimer-I did receive a review copy of this software, and I must say, I absolutely love it! I used a different software in the past, but this one is far, far easier to use. It's also got a lot of great additional built in features to help you market your book as well.

What I love about the software, is everything is very well organized. Just follow the steps shown, copy and paste your text in and point and click on the menu and you've got your chapter/page done!

There's no difficult ,hard to understand instructions for using the software either. As a matter of fact there's a fairly short video explaining exactly how to use it, step by step. And the process is VERY simple!

The pages look amazing with everything in place! No more spending an hour or more tweaking everything to look right.

From now on my book publishing is going to be super easy and fast thank to this amazing software!

Thanks Chris!

This product is a lifesaver for Kindle authors. Making a Kindle book is going to be so much easier now and I am never going to have to worry about how my book looks in the end anymore.

Yesterday I tested Book Builder with two books I had already done that I uploaded in Word format previously. It took me about 8 minutes to redo my book in Book Builder and re-upload to Amazon.

It was so easy to use and my books all have perfect spacing, perfect font, everything is exactly as it should be. I checked on both my Kindle and my iPad and everything was perfect. I now understand why my previous books all had small issues that I never knew how to correct.

Book Builder also included a several extra marketing sections which I never even thought of, this is great to get people to buy my other books. In addition, Book Builder builds the table of contents, the copyright page, and the title page all pre filled in with my name and my book title.

My future books are going to be fast and easy to create, this product is a true A+.

[Disclaimer : I got a review copy and here are my honest thoughts]

The interface is quite friendly and easy to use. You may edit each and everything via control panel. For Example :
A home cover page
A professional introduction page
A table of contents that automatically lists chapters created (with a unique addition of being able to easily create segmented pages within chapters)
Different pages, chapters and segmented pages for your ebook using the included visual editor.
Plus lots more additions included.

Moreover I liked the reviews swap concept more. You may swipe/create/manage your reviews with an easy and friendly interface.

If you want to expand your kindle library, this software is for you. You need to illustrate, chapter 1 to last chapter, this product will save your hours you which you would waste without using this. It will pay for itself in no time.

It comes with a no obligation guarantee and will refund your money if you’re not satisfied. Avail this offer, use it and if you don't feel to be satisfied, you could receive your money back.

Recommended.

TheSwift

This sounds very interesting, curious if it is software or online? edit, I see from a review that its online.

Wanted to ask because I have purchased two other kindle products, that no longer work, one was online the other was a software product, (they both said they were the best) but they did not last, is there any provision for releasing the software should there come a time when the product is no longer supported? I know that probably seems like it would never happen but trust me I have seen it happen far too many times. I think its a consideration when buying a product that you dont really have any control over and you just have to trust that its going to be there.

If you are asking if we are releasing a desk top version we are not. Our software is developed in PHP. I still support all my products with a centralized support center.

Can I copy and paste directly from MS Word into the software?

I need to build a book for a client who wrote a bunch of poems in Word. Reproducing the way he formatted each poem would be a pain if I can't copy and paste. In some poems, he has tabbed some lines so not all the lines are left justified and some other weird formatting stuff.

Yes you can copy directly from Word and paste in, images however will have to be added separately with our image tool to change them to image data how Amazon wants.

AuthorGear will then build the book and do all the formatting, building the table of contents, the copyright, the other important sections and then link it all up.

I don't have any problems with word file formatting/upload, besides the picture books.
With picture books it's a disaster.

Word books have a lot of issues, some you may not even realize, but pictures is certainly one of them. Bullet points are also always a disaster if you use them. But the thing I hate about Word books is that they always look different in different book reading devices. You can make your book look great in one device and then when you check another and spacing or something else is all messed up.

HTML books never have this issue, it is the only format a real Kindle author should be using.

Thanks Chris,

I am a Kindle author myself and being that I know an HTML book is the only format any real Kindle author should be using I decided to make this after using a couple of my competitors tool.

I also keep getting PMs from people asking me if my software really works as they have used another Kindle tool that were garbage.

I dealt with the same thing, I first bought two competitors tools and I was so disappointed I just said "screw it! I'm making my own."

So yes my product actually works and is the best product of its kind in the marketplace, I guarantee it!

Hi Chris,
Can you make a pdf out of a finished book instead of uploading it to Kindle?
Or is there another way to access the finished book outside of Kindle?
Thanks!

Chris, are you still here?

This looks great. I have a question about formatting flexibility.

I publish on Kindle, using HTML files that I pretty much hand-code myself. You are right that this is the only way to know your are giving Amazon exactly what it wants.

In my case, I use CSS to specify paragraphs that have a first-line indent, full justification, and no spacing between paragraphs. Can I format for this in your software? In your video it looked like you prefer no first-line indent, ragged-right margins, and a space between paragraphs. Does you software lock one in to that kind of format, or can I change it?

Thanks,
Steve

Or is there another way to access the finished book outside of Kindle?
Thanks!

You can create a PDF in Word, there is no need for special software for that. Our software makes HTML Kindle ready books only.

Hi Steve,


You have full access to the files, so if you want to manually change anything you can open them and make any changes you wish. But our software does not come with the function to indent the paragraph by default.

Hello,

I bought this product on June 22nd 2015 through paypal. I got a receipt for it but no url to log in to an online website or a download link. On June 22nd 2015 I sent an email to support@paygear.com which is listed on the receipt as the contact email address. In the receipt, the description is listed as" Author Gear: Kindle Book Builder Kindle Book Review Swap System Item# 6621"

So I checked AuthorGear | Kindle Swap, Kindle Book Builder, Publish Kindle Ebooks to see if I could log in there. My email address which I used to make the payment through paypal was not recognised. I just get an error message stating "Please enter valid username or valid email address".

I left a voice mail today along with the transaction ID from paypal at the phone number listed on the receipt to request the log in info. If this isnt resolved immediately, I will lodge a complaint with paypal and request a refund.

This kind of "customer service" is not acceptable.

Sincerely,

-M

You have a problem from an order two months ago? You create an account before you submit payment, so if you paid you have an account. So I think you are saying you forgot your login details?

Please use the help desk on our website, this is where we handle support. Go to the website hit contact and log your question, also include the username you selected when you created your account if you remember it.

Is this product still active and supported?
I'm looking to buy a copy for a book I'm writing.

Well, I bought it. Everything works except links and images.
I had to edit the code to fix links manually, etc.

Still formatted everything nicely but there was no knowledgebase, community. It's like the software has been abandoned but still works mostly.

I just checked the links and images and not seeing an issue and just did a book myself a couple of weeks ago. PM me your username, also I do not check this thread all the time, support is much faster on the site if you have an issue.
