Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Yes, I assist and advise people using Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing.

A basic point before beginning: be sure you have

1. logged in to, your account

2. be sure you are registered for Kindle Direct Publishing.

Uploading may work just fine after that.

Also: do you have step-by-step instructions to follow? if not, here is where they can be found:

The instructions are, in summary:

- prepare your book file

- register / KDP account setup

- log in, go to Bookshelf

- Create New Title

- Enter title info

- Upload and Preview Book Content (i.e. do the upload to Amazon KDP site, then view what got uploaded to be sure it's fit to publish / show / final version / etc.

Did you get through those steps?

What error indication went with the upload failing?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
We tried to upload via PDF. There is a kindle service to prep your book for upload. Are you familiar with doing that?
Expert:  Russell H. replied 4 months ago.

Yes, I am.

How did the upload fail? at the stage of preparing the book, or "converting your file to Kindle" - did the converting stage fail?

IF so, the PDF file must have been unsuitable somehow. How did you produce the PDF file?
