I have compiled a novel (draft) to Kindle .mobi format. Am using Scrivener 2.4.1 and version 2.8 of KindleGen on an iMac running 10.8.3. (Who said writers don’t get numbers?)
All looks pretty much as I want it to…just some minor tweaking to do.
When I read the novel using the Kindle app on an iPad, it isn’t recognised as a book but as a document. Is this because it hasn’t been bought from Amazon, and so isn’t regarded as a proper book? Or is it something I need to change in the compile settings? Have hunted around sans finding a solution.
Also, when it comes to finally uploading to Amazon, do I compile the novel to include the cover embedded in the .mobi, or do I compile sans a cover and only upload that to Amazon as a separate file? Or do I do both: embed the cover and upload it separately?
