My Days as a Book Formatter are Numbered!

I received an email recently announcing that Kindle Create will soon be able to format paperbacks as well as Kindle books. The Kindle conversion process is incredibly easy as long as you have the Word document formatted correctly (and that is also very, very easy to accomplish by following some very simple rules). I haven't downloaded the new Kindle Create yet, but I suspect it will also be easy. Anything I do, formatting-wise, can and will be automated. It's only a matter of time.
“You can use Kindle Create to prepare an eBook and paperback with the same manuscript file. If you prepare your paperback with Kindle Create, you can publish it in any trim size. Kindle Create also takes care of complicated paperback formatting tasks for you. When you upload your file to KDP, margins are automatically calculated, and page numbers are added to your paperback's table of contents page and footers. Your first chapter will start on a right-facing page, with subsequent chapters starting on the next available page.”
Read about the new Kindle Create - coming soon!
