Customer Question
I am trying to publish...
I am trying to publish a Kindle book; have reached the "Add or edit address" box and it tells me that "Missouri" or "MO" is not a valid state. Last I heard we still are in the union. Please advise. I am angry and frustrated.

Try this: put something it will allow, any state, then save it. Then close it and shut down the Kindle. Then come back and do an 'edit' and try putting in "Missouri" at that point.See if it will go in.

It does not help. It won't accept anything. I'm uploading from my computer TO Kindle. There is no "edit" button allowed (see below for a copy of the box involved). I have an Amazon account on record with the same address and THAT is valid--why suddenly is "Missouri" not a valid state (MO won't work either).

Can you just use any one of these to get it into the Kindle then we can edit?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Any other country immediately works, but the United States does not. This is really stupid.
Electronics Technician: Craig, Electrical/ Electronic Technician replied 8 years ago
Yes, but it will get you in, then 'edit' when it's on the Kindle.

I am not using a Kindle, damn it! I am using a computer to upload a book manuscript TO Kindle. I have used Afganistan, saved the information, then tried to edit it to change the country to United States--and it continues to tell me that Missouri is not a valid state. Come on, get your damn computers straightened out. I am totally frustrated and angry with Amazon, Kindle and the whole damn idea. Help me here.
Electronics Technician: Craig, Electrical/ Electronic Technician replied 8 years ago
I understand that. I'm saying is that once you trick the computer with a country and address it will allow, and get it to upload to the Kindle, then we can edit it later ON THE KINDLE. Does this help or make sense? Please, try to calm down, it's not helping you or me...

As it stands this is how it reads:

Address *
8026 Cedar Grove Lane
Russellville, Missouri 65074
Afghanistan
XXX-XXX-XXXX

Obviously I'd rather any checks come to Missouri rather than to Afghanistan. Maybe you can edit it on Kindle--I can't. If you can straighten it out on your end, then I'll accept the answer and pay.
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I am still trying to get Kindle to recognize Missouri as a state. I've clicked on every possible way to edit the address so it works and nothing does. I find now that you have become silent--are you as frustrated as I am?
Electronics Technician: Craig, Electrical/ Electronic Technician replied 8 years ago
Do you ever do this prior to downloading?

Each Kindle has its own unique e-mail address. When you e-mail personal documents
to your Kindle, they are automatically converted to a Kindle-friendly format.
To set up your Kindle e-mail address, follow the steps below:
1. On your computer, open your Web browser and go to:
http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle
2. Sign-in to your Amazon.com account.
3. In the Your Kindle(s) section, select “Edit Info.”
4. In the Kindle E-mail Address text field, change the first part of the e-mail address to
what you would like it to be. The @kindle.com will automatically be appended.
5. Select “Update information” to save your changes and close the text entry box.
Your Kindle will only receive converted files from e-mail addresses you have
authorized on the Manage Your Kindle page to help prevent spam. The default setting
dictates that only items sent from your Amazon.com account e-mail address will be
forwarded. You can add e-mail addresses to the list by visiting :
http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle
In Manage Your Kindle, add the addresses of your friends, co-workers

I don't HAVE a Kindle! I am working from a computer, trying to upload a book to be published by Kindle. I have done everything but list my address for any checks to be mailed and I get "Missouri" as an "invalid state" which is nonsense. Are you folks listening to my problelm? Please see the message I am copying from Kindle: I put down "Afganistan" and it accepted Missouri...but not if I list "United States."
