Formatting for Kindle

Even though Amazon won’t let me give away Bob on the Kindle (they force you to charge for it), I still wanted a clean Kindle version. The one from Smashwords is OK but they don’t do the name right (supposed to be last name, first name) and there can be issues with indents if you use block formatting like I do. Anyway, rather than just live with it, Tanel and I (mostly Tanel) formatted a special “clean” Kindle version without any of those problems. I suppose if it ever ends up in the Kindle store, I’ll be prepared. If you want it, let me know via the contact form and I’ll send it to you. For any of you self publishers looking for help, we used this excellent guide from Aaron Shepard quite a bit.
