“It turns boring, frustrating Kindle formatting into a piece of cake.”
I grabbed Kinstant Formatter when it was first offered to buyers of a related product. It turns boring, frustrating Kindle formatting into a piece of cake.
Unless your time (and sanity) are worth less than a buck an hour, Rachel’s WSO is a no brainer. Think of the time and money you’ll save. That’s more time and money for your next Kindle ebook!

“As a conversion tool, it’s the best (and easiest) I’ve used.”
I just want to chime in here. I’ve been formatting Kindle books for myself and for clients for quite some time now. I’ve personally never found it quite as challenging as most people think it is; it’s just a matter of following a few rules.
One thing I’ve never been completely satisfied with though, is the conversion process. I never liked Mobipocket Creator at all, and when I found Calibre I was thrilled. It had its issues too though. One of those issues was that because of the number of steps you had to go through to convert a file, there was more room for error.
I first got to try Kinstant a few weeks ago. (I was a beta tester.) At first glance, I thought “This is too simple to be good.”
Well, it may look simple on the front, but it’s pretty powerful under the hood.
As a conversion tool, it’s the best (and easiest) I’ve used.
When it comes to formatting, you still need to be aware of some of the rules, but Kinstant is a lot more forgiving if you aren’t perfect. And if you convert your file, and find that it isn’t quite right, it’s much quicker to redo it!
Not only that, I’ve quizzed Steve Henty extensively through the Support Desk. I’ve asked him questions on behalf of myself, and of my subscribers who bought this on my recommendation. He always answers very quickly and in detail.
All the way around, I give this software my highest recommendation on quality, ease of use, price and support.
“If you publish Kindle books, this will save you more time than any other Kindle tool out there.”
This flat out works great. If you publish Kindle books, this will save you more time than any other Kindle tool out there. Buy it. Buy it. Buy it.

“Kinstant Formatter is by far the best as well as the easiest method of formatting for Kindle I have seen and reviewed.”
Kinstant Formatter is by far the best as well as the easiest method of formatting for Kindle I have seen and reviewed. I have used a number of methods, most of which were tedious and I just did not want to do, so I kept putting off the formatting. Now formatting from Word to Kindle is a piece of cake taking only a short while, assuming my Word Doc. is correct.
Thanks again for such a wonderful time saving program. I hope you keep it up to date with changes in Kindle. Now I have way more time to put to writing and marketing efforts.
Because I have set up my marketing plan…I am going to rewrite some pages of the first two books and re-format them with Kinstant Formatter so they fit into my marketing plan. I was not looking forward to this job in the past, but now can see it will be a piece of cake compared to what it would have been without Formatter.

“My nightmare is over!”
When I decided to publish our first publication for the Kindle, I read everything I could find on how to be a successful Kindle publisher. I read over & over again how frustrating it was to format your e-book properly. I just figured it was because these people weren’t used to editing and publishing books like I was. Then I tried to do it.
I kept getting so frustrated, I would quit working on it and avoid it for days on end, and soon a few months had gone by without my publishing our first Kindle publication.
I mentioned my frustration on a Facebook group and one of the members mentioned a tool she uses to format her e-books for Kindle, so I took her advice and bought the Kinstant formatter. Bless her, she saved my sanity!
The Kinstant formatter is so easy to use and their programmer/tech support person Steven Henty is my hero! Not only is our first Kindle publication now available, but I am actually excited to do more because this tool will ensure I won’t have to go through that terrible experience ever again, it only takes minutes to format your e-book, upload the cover and then preview it. Easy as can be! And when I had a small issue with a picture not showing up, Steve immediately responded and helped me figure it out quickly—best tech support/customer service experience I have ever had! I am not a technical person at all, so I have interacted with many tech support people, working with Steve & using the Kinstant was a dream!
My nightmare is over! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
“I would unhesitatingly recommend Kinstatt Formatter.”
I was in touch with Steven Henty and very impressed with the way he responded to my queries. I was also very taken with the Kinstatt Formatter and offered to write an endorsement, so here it is:
I am new to formatting ebooks, and was delighted to come across the Kinstant Formatter as I thought it would help me produce a properly presented ebook. I did try to use a formatting service and was very disappointed with the results. I have now used the Formatter for one of my novels and been delighted with the way it instantly turns a Word document into a well-presented Mobi file.
For a simple Word document, such as a short story, article or novel, it is very easy to do. If there are a couple of unusual formatting requirements in your manuscript, such as a special layout, you do need to understand Word Styles to get a good result. However, you need to understand Styles whatever method you use for converting to the Kindle format.
I would unhesitatingly recommend Kinstatt Formatter. It saves a writer new to Kindle formatting a huge amount of time and trouble, and gives a feeling of confidence that the job has been done professionally. I have a substantial backlist of paper books I wish to put on the Kindle, so the Formatter is a brilliant tool for me to use. It will pay for itself many times over.
I would also like to add that I had a couple of queries which were answered in a very short time.

“Just wanted you to know that because of the development of kinstant, this book could now help some more humans over a bigger range…“
Just wanted to say BIG THANKS for the Kinstant formatter…..when first uploaded a small section of the book I wrote 2 years ago I was more than inspired to really know it could be published via ebook kindle…..seems quite quick, with hands on, ease and fun….so far so good with learning about some formating, and it has been going great 🙂
Just wanted you to know that because of the development of kinstant, this book could now help some more humans over a bigger range, that really need it (although not really known but believed to be so).
“Thank you for making the process much quicker, easier and a “reality to
view that its all right and great, to put the book out there.'”
Just a small note of BIG thanks again for kinstant formatter ……
I returned to it, and played around a little more with uploading files, then went ahead to upload on kindle direct publisher ……
Today it is published !!
Thank you for making the process much quicker, easier and a “reality to
view that its all right and great, to put the book out there” when first viewing it on the kinstant format…. now the information that can really
help, can be ‘known’ and hopefully applied for many gains for all.
great to be able to “see” the information through the format/publish
Hooray ! ….even though theres more “work” (joy) to be done!!

“I just published 5 _____ books and couldn’t have done it without your product.“
Thanks for checking in. You are so great . . . and I don’t know what I would do without the Formatter.
It makes my life so much easier. I just published 5 _____ books and couldn’t have done it without your product.
“I simply love the Kinstant Formatter…”
I simply love the Kinstant Formatter and have had absolutely great results with about 10-12 books so far.
“I was sold on the product and now consider it one of my essential Kindle publishing tools.”
I have used the Kinstant Formatter since not long after it’s release. At first I resisted and tried to format my Kindle book myself. I know HTML, I know coding, I know computers. How hard could it be? Well I don’t know about hard but certainly time consuming and messy and finicky. I soon realised I was spending more in value of my time than the Kinstant Formatter costs.
So I decided to try it on the knowledge that it had a 30 day refund policy and with the idea that I would probably find it not to be any good and would refund – so I checked it out.
But after the first or at most the second format run I did with it I was sold on the product and now consider it one of my essential Kindle publishing tools.
It is fast, it is easy, it actually works really well (and my documents were NOT easy – a lot more formatting, pictures, and other things than your average book).
It is also web based which means the developer can tweak it and I immediately get the benefits of his work (and I have already seen this happen at least twice – such as when Amazon changed cover image sizes and shortly after that Kinstant Formatter reflects this and advises me when I don’t meet Amazon’s new requirement – cool). I fully recommend this product – you will get properly formatted Kindle books with practically no effort (just a couple of clicks). Of course, being web-based you need a reasonable internet connection, but really anything above dial-up speeds should be OK.
“The speed of conversion of both covers and the MS Word (docx) files were lightening fast. No errors encountered. No learning curve required. No fussing around.”
Ran some test files…then tested in Kindle viewer(current desktop version) …this product is super duper
The speed of conversion of both covers and the MS Word (docx) files were lightening fast. No errors encountered. No learning curve required. No fussing around…
Excellent Product though in Beta
“This formatter is brilliant and SO much better than the old MobiPocker creator process…”
I just wanted to mention that this formatter is brilliant and SO much better than the old MobiPocker creator process I used to use.
“Thank you for this excellent tool…”
I just want to thank you for this excellent tool. It is working perfect after the last upgrade. I am now able to upload books to the “Kindle Direct Publishing” that I could not upload before. I am so relieved! Thanks!

“An easy and AFFORDABLE solution…”
I stumbled upon Kinstant Formatter while looking for instructions about how to format for Kindle. I was skeptical because I had read horror stories about other convertors and opinions as to why “automatic” conversion wouldn’t, couldn’t work. I’m thrilled to be able to tell anyone who is searching for an easy and AFFORDABLE solution that they should look no further that Kinstant Formatter. My book has several images and it handled them fine. It took me a few passes to clean up all of my formatting errors but the upload/convert process simply could not have been any easier. Great job and congratulations to the KF team.
“Don’t know where I would be without this tool…”
“The Kinstant Formatter has saved me hours of work formatting my novels for publication on Amazon Kindle. Within seconds my manuscript and cover page are converted and ready for upload. I seriously don’t know where I would be without this tool and for literally pennies per upload, I would be a fool not to use it.

“I highly recommend this company’s product not only for the products, but for the level of customer service it provides.”
Finalizing my first ebook for Kindle, I came across the website Kinstant Formatter that provides analytical software to help ensure documents are compatible with amazon’s ebook technical requirements. The level of customer service provided by KF’s “Michaela” was absolutely tremendous. She responded to each of my emails very quickly and thoroughly; she invested the time not only to help me understand how to make necessary edits to my Word document but also fixed the book’s cover. I highly recommend this company’s product not only for the products, but for the level of customer service it provides.
“Kinstant is simply brilliant and brilliantly simple…”
I bought Kinstant access today. I’ve been pulling my hair out for months trying to convert my book to a format Amazon would accept.
If I tell you I spent 20 failed hours this week in a futile attempt to satisfy them, you’ll know the hair pulling that I have been experiencing.
More in hope than expectation, Kinstant converted my book in under a minute last night. The error list ran to about 12 pages and the resulting document not only looked beautiful but has been accepted by Amazon.
Kinstant is simply brilliant and brilliantly simple – feel free to quote me on that.

“It’s really refreshing to find a support desk of this caliber…”
Being relatively new to Kindle Publishing I purchased a program for Kindle Formatting to help make my life easier. The formatting software is excellent but can’t hold a candle to the support they give you. I was having trouble with my TOC and put in a support ticket for advice. The response was immediate and the assistance was beyond wonderful. The support tech, Michaela, went the whole nine yards to assist me very rapidly. I can’t say enough for the efficiency and great attitude. It’s really refreshing to find a support desk of this caliber in this business.

“A MUST HAVE…”
What can I say? This tool makes it possible for me to add books to Amazon with enormous speed. It is a MUST HAVE for anybody seriously considering publishing eBooks on Amazon. The ease of formatting with this tool I can now add 3 to 4 books a day to Amazon.
No painstaking endless trial-and-error for formatting, just point and click and wabamm ready… Thanks Steve, your Dutch Fan
