The Nitty-Gritty Details
Thank you so much for this useful template. This is going to be really helpful for a first time Kindle publisher like me. Kay, I have been searching for a word template that you have posted for a very long time. God bless you for sharing!
How to create an e-book chapter template in LibreOffice Writer
Kay… I must be honest. For a kindle book make sure the pixel size of your images are a pixels on the shortest side and pixels on the longest side — this is what amazon recommends for the cover image and so it works well for all images. Your images will change anyway when converted and depending on the device people use to read it anyway. Make sure you put your cursor in the correct place within your document that you want the image to go before adding it and then it will go straight there. I suggest you center the image too. Remember that if you are using an open office document then you will need to save your document as an HTML file and then zip that file and upload that to KDP.
Thank you so much for your answer Kay, very helpful indeed. Just another question: I am publishing books in Arabic learning Arabic for French speakers. Will the template work wit Arabic characters? Do you have any suggestions for those of us who might like to change the template font? Preferred fonts, etc.
Hi Kay, I follow your blog by some time, and make you my compliments, especially for your life saving templates on this page! I have one question: In the Table of Contents, all of the Chapters Titles are not working, that is they are not forwarding. Is there a fix or should I pull a new one and just try again?
It sounds like you might have edited the names of the chapter titles within the Table of Contents TOC itself. If you manually edit it, things go wrong.
Okay… so cool! You are awesome! That was my last big hurtle, so I can now complete transferring the remaining chapters. Great work you did! Thanks for letting me know. I shall attempt to use them quickly, as I have a couple of books on Amazon presently but not in the proper up loadable template style.
As much as I refer to your fantastic template and wealth of information, all the time, everyday, sometimes every night, and definitely on weekends — I cannot believe that I missed this particular page to applaud you more! I have heard that it can take some time for Amazon to price match change the price to zero.
I would like to know if you can add footnotes to this template. If so would you please kindly advise? A little number will appear and you add the text in the place at the bottom of the page where indicated. Then add the text where indicated at the bottom of the page. Thanks so much Kay!
It works! Your help is invaluable!!! Thank you for helping me and so many others. Kind regards. Hey thanks for the template. Hope that helps! You really saved me. How can I get them all to be consistent in the formatting? Either have them all show up as blue hyperlinks or have all look like normal text, but work like hyperlinks?
For Ebooks is it OK to add quite a few pictures?
Use open source tools to create your own eBooks
Just wondering what your thoughts are on this one — good to bad to include them from a readability point of view? I have written a few instructional kindle books and I certainly include images as I believe that really helps. It adds value because it helps your reader understand what do to more clearly. Sometimes you can add an image and believe it is on the same page as your text but when it gets converted it ends up and another page!

How to create your own e-books with OpenOffice / LibreOffice
Its very generous. Anything I can help with? No strings attached. There is something you could really help me with… Do you have any advice for a natural anti inflammatory? I suffer with back pain but am allergic to all the anti inflammatory medicines!
This may sound crazy but for your back try taking raw honey each day and by that I mean honey from a local beekeeper that has not had all the goodness removed by the mass honey producers! I know of a local honey producer nearby. Thank you!
Hi Kay, It depends on your type of back pain. I damaged my back as a child and needed several years in hospital, back supports and an operation. If there is damage there look up Low Dose Nalrexone, for me it has given my life back. I take it nightly the liquid is more effective than the tablets. Also, go and relax in a hot spa tub but not for more than minutes, otherwise it could aggravate.
Hope it helps PS Hoping to write a book on pain management — all personally experienced in 35 years of dealing with pain!! So thanks very much for the template and I hope the above helps. Thank you so much for your tips on back pain. I can export to Open Office and keep the current format but is it worth the effort. Is Open Office better to use for writing my book?
If so why? I really need to understand the benefits of using Open Office and if there are templates for us creating eBooks and well as Paper books. Thank you. Try Atlantis Word. It generates a good epub directly from the program. LibreOffice went their own way, and have been fixing thousands of bugs and adding more functionality. OpenOffice has been rotting on the vine.

I think i tried some time ago and i prefered atlantis export to epub, it generates a very clear result. Originally Posted by Hitch.
