If you know what you’re doing, Kindle rocks.
You get to leverage millions of hungry buyers, eager to buy from you… (almost everyone either has the Kindle or a Kindle app nowadays…)
Your income LASTS – you can “set it and forget it” for many books, without having to worry about fancy Google algorithms changing and stealing your income away…
It’s FREE to list… you don’t have to invest a PENNY upfront.
I’ve heard it compared to the “Wild Wild West” days of the web, with so much untapped opportunity. Except there’s a catch:
Have you tried formatting your Kindle books yet?
Here are just some of the issues with it:
I know this from experience. I had one bestselling book that was selling like gangbusters.
Until I got THIS review:
“I really enjoyed reading this book. The content was pretty much what I expected and has helped me tremendously.
Unfortunately, the formatting of the book is appalling. I’m disappointed Amazon would allow users to purchase books with poor formatting.
I have complained to the customer service team.”
As you can imagine, sales slowed down tremendously after that.
And the part that stung the most? I had NO IDEA the formatting was that bad until I got that review. When I uploaded the book, the Preview tool made it look fine!
Obviously if people knew how to format well, they would. Who wants bad reviews?
I ran a quick Google search for “kindle formatting sucks” and found thousands of results. Here are just a couple:
See, adding a book to Kindle isn’t a 1-2-3 thing. You need to know HTML, it’s tedious, and if you do it wrong (which doesn’t always show up in the Kindle preview tool)… you’ll have no idea until you start getting bad reviews.
As of right now, the options on the market (like MobiPocket or Calibre) are NOT sufficient.
MobiPocket hasn’t been worked on since January 2009 – almost FOUR years ago.
And Amazon said themselves that the ONLY way to make your book future-proof is to use KindleGen (which nobody else is using — except us, but more on that in a minute).
Can you imagine going through the excruciating pain of formatting 10 books… only to find that in a month’s time, you find yourself getting tons of bad reviews because Amazon changed their formatting algorithm again?
One day I was talking to a programmer friend I know, Steve.
I asked him if he’d be able to create a tool that could do the formatting for me. One that could run on my Mac, would be fine for someone completely incompetent technically, and one that would erase ANY chance of getting bad reviews.
Steve, being the genius he is, said yes.
Kinstant Formatter is a formatting tool that will make your life MUCH easier.
In less than one minute, you can have a book formatted. PERFECTLY.
“I have just uploaded two documents and I am ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED.
Apart from a few tweaks to the original document, this is so quick. Thank you.
You have saved me hours and hours of work. Best money I have ever spent.”

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.

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… working with Steve & using the Kinstant was a dream!
My nightmare is over! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Up until now, you’ve had 3 options.
Use a bad tool (and that’s only if you have a PC. There aren’t even tools available for Macs). The tools out there don’t format well, they’re not future-proof, and it’s highly likely you’ll get bad reviews with them.
Hire someone. I know one woman in FULL DEMAND for her Kindle formatting services. She charges $50/book and you have to wait days to get your book back.
Do nothing. As you can see in the testimonials above, one woman ended up doing nothing for over a month because formatting was so frustrating. She had countless missed sales, not to mention all the lives she could be changing with her knowledge….
Kinstant Formatter provides the only option that actually makes sense.
No software to download or understand…. this is a web-based tool that works on PC’s AND Macs…
Future-proof all of your books… do the work ONCE and only ONLY… because KinstantFormatter is using the ONLY tool Amazon has promised will work indefinitely…
Publish your books in any language (We have happy users publishing in Spanish, French, and Greek so far…)
Upload many file types – we support doc, docx and odt
Make this VERY easy for your readers. This eliminates page breaking on black and white Kindles, makes bullets look GOOD, adds links in the Kindle’s “Go to…” menu for the cover, table of contents and NCX (location map), respects left indentations in your source documents, and respects and exists bookmarks “toc” & “start” from previous attempts to use KDP.
Upload images with no problem. Books with a few illustrative images – that are not overlapped – look GREAT… (Though fair warning: Image-based or fixed layout books are NOT our specialty).
Images are automatically resized, optimized and compressed to ensure the lowest file size possible. (This is important as your file size can have a huge impact on royalties.)
We also add a white background to transparent images so that they look as great as possible.
Your readers’ first impression, the Table Of Contents, is created in a breeze…. (with up to THREE levels per T.O.C.!)
Create placeholder covers which can be updated at any time…
Receive premium support -KinstantFormatter is well known for a high level of customer service that you simply cannot get from the open source stuff out there…
Keep your books a secret. As soon as you upload your file, it’s deleted by the server. We’ll never see what you create.
Here’s the deal…
We went over your options. You could use a bad tool. This will cost you lost time, a lack of sales (when the bad reviews pile up), and frustration down the line if Amazon changes their formatting rules.
You could hire someone to do it for you. This would be $50 a pop, plus you’d have to wait days to get it back (losing out on sales…)
You could spend hours on formatting yourself. How much do you make an hour? Let’s say $10 on the low end. If you come up with even 5 books a year, and spend 4 hours on each (totally reasonable)… that’s $200 down the drain. Plus 20 hours.
Of course you could also do nothing. Just give up on the whole Kindle dream.
Or, just purchase KinstantFormatter. It’s a really epic deal.
Thing is… we could easily charge $97 or so for this. It would DEFINITELY be fair.
– You get this tool, which would cost thousands of dollars to custom-develop
– It’ll end up making you WAY more profits if you use it consistently…
– AND! You can use it on a LOT of books!
And I imagine you’ll be pleasantly shocked when you see the price.
You can get KinstantFormatter right now for just $27.
We work on a “credit” system, so each book you format is one credit.
$27 buys you 100 credits. And you will NEVER be automatically rebilled or anything like that. You’re making a one-time purchase right now.
This is an INCREDIBLE deal when you consider what you’d have to pay (in time and/or service fees) the other way.
You’d spend more to hire someone for just ONE book… and you wouldn’t get it back instantly.
Why so low? Well, like with all of our products, we aim to overdeliver. Not only does it help us sleep at night, but it makes financial sense too.
When you make more money with your online endeavors, and you can trace it back to us helping you…. you’re obviously going to tell people about us and buy from us again.
No questions, no hassles – it’s that simple.
Go ahead and place your order now.
You’re going to get everything within 60 seconds (or less) after purchasing.
You’ll get everything… no waiting!
By the end of the day, you could have one, two, or MORE Kindle books uploaded and ready for sales.
So, click on the “ADD TO CART” button below and secure your best possible price.….
[Important note: credits expire exactly 12 months after the purchase date]
