For those who have trouble formatting their .doc to .mobi: if you go to the download section of my website [see signature], you can download a .pdf on how to convert .doc through .html to .epub or .mobi.

If you need examples on how it's supposed to look, the first ten chapters of Reprobate can be downloaded from that same page, in .pdf, .mobi, and .epub

Good luck

OK, this poster is banned but I want what he is offering. A review site I want to submit a ms to in .mobi format and I have absolute no idea how to do that, and when I tried looking it up on the net all the instructions were too technical for my small brain.

Can someone point me to a place where all I have to do is upload my .doc and it comes out as .mobi?

I'm not sure that's possible like that. Calibre (http://calibre-ebook.com/) (free) converts pretty much everything to everything, but it's probably better to save the .doc as .html or .rtf first.

Echoing asroc, Aruna. I just learned of Calibre in the past couple months. It's real easy to use.
