Often I’m asked what programmes I used to help me pick my niche, pick the best keywords to get the best chance to be noticed at Amazon, then once the book is written..how to format, publish and the biggest one..MARKET my books.
So I decided to do this page and share this will anyone who’d like to know, and hopefully this will help you. Took me forever to find all the best programmes and software to use. I really wish I’d had this list from the beginning.
Note..please take the time to read the pages I send you to, they explain the programmes in detail and they have helped me immensely.

One of the biggest mistakes authors make when self-publishing to Kindle is to not have their manuscript properly formatted. A HUGE No-no! Nothing will destroy sales like a book that doesn’t sit properly on the page of an e-reader, or a table
of contents which doesn’t work.
And, of course this is definitely going to lead to bad reviews..and we all know that just a few of these will absolutely destroy chances of future sales.
Also..unless you’re really good at Word or some other program, formatting sucks
and it’s tricky. What a ‘learning curve’. To add to this misery, the recommended
Kindle Preview Tool often does NOT show your mistakes…lovely..*sigh*.
And that’s even if Amazon approve the book in the first place. If the formatting is bad, they may not…or…you have to re-submit and miss crucial days of sales.
We all know that the more books you have up, the higher chances you have of making
a decent income at this.
But not only can the formatting of all of these drive you mad..but managing all the folders for all the books can be a nightmare as well!
So let me show you what Kindle Publishing Pro does to take care of all these headaches..so you can get to the part you like…writing your books:
- Create new books withing your control panel
- Upload existing boos to edit, or just format for Kindle
- Automatically format your entire book for Kindle
- Automatically insert and format your Table of Contents
And more..and you won’t find these features anywhere else:
- Stores multiple accounts
- Push Button marketplace submissions
- Total Kindle management. All of your Kindle submissions, uploads and working files are kept in one single control panel
- If you’re publishing and uploading dozens of books per session, there is a delay feature that will help prevent red flags at Amazon by creating a delay between submissions (completely optional).
So really, you don’t even need Word..all your writing can be done from your control panel. Check Out KD Publishing Pro here

So how do you market your book? HUGE question and concern. Google Adwords advertising is next to impossible for the average individual author. Even if you’re published with the big houses, often they’ll expect you to do your own marketing, so why not learn the best, easiest and least expensive way from the start
It’s no mystery that one of the busiest sites, with the most traffic is Facebook. People spend crazy amounts of time there, talking to friends and most importantly, sharing posts and information. Well, that’s exactly what Bleupage helps you do…maximize on that by helping you find your fans and readers. People already into your genre and hungry to find more.
There are actually two tools in this programme. The Bleuleads app and the Bleupage tool. The Bleuleads allows you to go to Facebook pages or groups or events and collect the UID (User ID) of people there, save them to a list and through the Power Editor in Facebook’s marketing Ad Manager, upload this collection or ‘Custom Audience’ for you to market to. Amazing. So as an author, you could go to other author’s pages or fan groups, who write in your genre, and collect those UID’s of people who already like your type of book. Advertising directly to them makes it SO much more responsive. The member’s area has lots of videos to help you learn how to do everything.
The Bleupage tool helps you make a great Facebook Fan page, or a Custom post, with a one-of-a-kind look, or an optin form, to collect emails of fans, which you can then market to whenever you have a new book ready or some other news to tell them. You can even make a coupon give away, enabling people to get discounts on your books and/or products. The sky is the limit.
The best news right now is that they are allowing you to download and try the tools for free for a limited time. So before this ends..go over and give Bleupage a test drive. You have noting to lose!
They offer three payment plans, because not everyone can pay for the whole deal at once. And you can decide on which one later, but if you’d like to see what the plans are..visit the links below:
Here is a video to give you a good idea of how all of this works:
