However, I must point out that it does use the Microsoft Word application that […]

If you’ve come straight to this page, then let me tell you a little about myself (though there’s more here).
Due to a last minute change of schedule, I decided to host a live Google Hangout to show how I use my 1-Click Book Creation software to create, format, and publish a 23,500 word non-fiction book to Kindle.

However, this isn’t one of them. I won’t harp on [again], about their importance (because, hopefully I’ve already made my point where they’re […]
Of course they get it wrong…they’re only human after all.
