A little insight for a noob
Hi folks, noob to the e-book/kindle publishing world and I have a few questions, if you don't mind. First I hope I'm posting this in the right place, if not I apologize up front.
I was given the project by my company to take a paper back book we have published and format it for kindle. I found the "guide" from kindle on the basics of doing this and for the most part I get the jist of how it works (web developer by profession) i have the entire book in a word doc format and i have 2 starting questions for you all.
1.It states in the "guide" that bullet points from word will not "follow" into the kindle format? Is there a "work around for this?
2.Is there such a thing as a "kindle simulator" that i can down load onto my computer to see how my book will "layout" once it's live?
I do some mobile development for web sites and iphone and androids have simulators for one's computer.
Any links to sites that maybe useful would be greatly appreciated if the answers are to lengthy...lol...
Thanks in advance you helping a noob find his way

Here is some help finding your way. You posted this in a forum devoted to help for people generating free eBook uploads for download by other users. They must be public domain or creative commons licensed. Is this what you intend to do with this ebook? If not you should have posted this in a more appropriate forum such as one devoted to MOBI (A kindle format).
