Well, that’s my opinion anyway.
Okay, I’ve told y’all many times how hard-headed I can be. So this post will come as no surprise, that even after reading the pros and cons of the new Kindle Kids’ Book Creator software, I still decided to give it a try. God I’m nuts!
To the readers which received an advance ecopy to review, I humbly apologize if you were unable to open the .mobi document.
I should have saved myself the trouble. Other than it being another software to use, trust me, it’s not worth the hassle.
It’s a lot of hard work for little return. Kind of like eating crawdads. After dinner, you wonder why you didn’t just go ahead and order a damn lobster.
Okay, enough bellyaching. Here is why after the hard work, cussing, and crying I ended up with a product that is very limited.
- I will have to publish another Kindle version through CreateSpace.
Why? Because Kindle Kids’ Book Creator files are huge and this limits the price you can charge for an ebook. Another thing it only allows certain devices to download the book. Yep, you heard right. Not all Kindle devices will be able to buy the book. That is why I will release another one through Createspace.
- It took me 10 tries to get this small picture book to look right. Sigh. Can anyone say crawdads?
I could’ve published a couple of ebooks in the time I wasted playing with this program.
Although I had queried, searched and read everything I could get my hands on about this program, still I went forward.
Never again. For the future, I will use PagePlus to design the book, produce it in a PDF with Nitro10, and load it straight to IngramSpark and Createspace.
Bottom line, this is a no go for me. I won’t be using KKBC again.
Talk to me, the lights on and comments are now open.
