The Kindle Fire How-To Guide is (Finally) Published!

Well, the project I was working on and thinking I would finish on Thanksgiving weekend was finally finished with the last round of proofing in the early hours this morning: I completed my latest book titled Kindle Fire How-To Guide: Your Guide to Tips, Tricks, Free Books, and Startup.  You can check it out if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/firebook into your computer’s web browser.

This book is a lot different than the other Kindle-related “how to” books I have published over the last few years – it is a detailed, step-by-step guide on how to navigate through each of the Kindle Fire’s tabs, perform the various steps associated with each tab, play the games, watch the music, read your books, listen to your music, and more.  I’ve also put in an updated section on how to find free Kindle books as well as new areas telling you how to get free MP3 music files, free videos, and free apps.  The tagline I put in the book’s description says “you may never pay another cent for Kindle content again” and I think that is true: by choice, I have only spent $2.97 on Kindle content this month while all of the apps, music, etc. I have received from Amazon has been free.

One of the neat things about this guide vs. my other Kindle-related guides is it is loaded with pictures showing the displays of your screen as we go through the various steps together.  That’s hopefully going to be neat for the purchasers, and neat for me now that it is done – but I will admit I said a few bad words during the process as it took me a while to figure out how to get the pictures “just right” by myself.

While I think the pictures in the book turned out good, I did the book cover last night and think it needs some help and will be working on it again.  That doesn’t change the functionality or content of the book itself, but it was either me do it myself or pay someone several hundred dollars and hope they got it right (since I’m an accountant and like the word “free,” are you surprised?).

Why am I telling you all of this?  I want you to purchase it, of course!  Actually, that is obviously a true statement but I need the book’s ranking to go up now for one simple reason: the higher the ranking now, the more people will see it as they start opening up their Kindle Fires under the tree on Christmas Day and over this weekend.  Permit me to be a little more obnoxious before I get to the more serious part of the post by saying you can check it out if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/firebook into your computer’s web browser.

Here’s the serious stuff: to give you a little incentive to purchase it, here’s one of my usual sweeteners: for every copy of this book sold over the next 24 hours (it’s 9:00 central time now), I will donate 100% of the royalties to the Ronald McDonald House here in Houston.  I’ve seen this facility and they do a great job: they are located right next door to the Texas Children’s Hospital, and it will bring a tear to your eye to see a lot of these children, and their families, and what they are going through when the child has a critical illness.  You can learn more about the Houston Ronald McDonald House if you click here or type in http://www.rmhhouston.org into your computer’s web browser.

So, that’s my offer: you’ll receive a (hopefully) great guide on how to use a Kindle Fire as well as the information on how to receive a lot of free books, music, video, and apps.  In return, you’ll help out some very sick children and their families as they try to keep the level of support up under some extremely difficult circumstances.  You can check it out if you click here or type in http://amzn.to/firebook into your computer’s web browser.

Thanks for reading this far!

Michael
