If he didn't post it, I would have to. This app is worth discussing.

I'm playing with it now, and it's pretty decent. I'm not sure it's worth paying for but it is worth playing around with.

Can you load existing azw (non-drm) into it to edit? I'd like an easier utility to clean up some of my public domain azws.
Though in most cases it's easier to just find it on gutenberg or manybooks instead...

You will need to download Kindle for PC, a free application from Amazon, for proofing books generated by Kindle Writer before publishing to Kindle Direct Publishing.
It would make more sense to recommend using Kindle Previewer for proofing than using K4PC IMO.

No, it looks like you can just create new ebooks, not edit existing ebooks.

Correct. Proofing in any of the "Kindle for ..." apps is good, but only for books being read in those apps.

To preview the appearance in the Kindle device you should use Kindle Previewer. If you use only one application for previewing it should only be Kindle Previewer: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000234621

I've tried it. My Opinion: wait for the next version.

Maybe you're a traditional writer and the new technologies are not very with you. It could be a simple example.

Greetings to all and especially Nate for his review.

I did not mean to give the impression of "reviewing a review" but I needed to clarify some issues related to Kindle Writer that were deemed of no consequence and not mentioned, but were nonetheless, in my view, important. I also felt that I should give my views upon MobiPocket creator, which although a good program is not without its faults. Even so I did provide a download link for MobiPocket Creator on the review page so that if people wanted to try it out they could.

A couple of people here have suggested that Kindle Previewer should be used for previewing Kindle books rather that Kindle for PC. Kindle Writer can do both! I have explained in the following link how easily this can be done, with no change to the Kindle Writer software. I leave the choice as to which program to view books generated by Kindle Writer to the user of my software.

The link is here

http://www.kindlewriter.co.uk/associate.htm

Finally, I wish to thank Nate for his advice through our communications and review - much of which I have noted for further improvements for Kindle Writer. We may differ on some areas it is true but your review was invaluable and I appreciate the time and effort you put aside to test my program.
