Formatting in the digital age

I read all incoming full manuscripts on my Kindle.
That means I request all manuscripts in .doc form.

That does NOT mean you need to reformat for what you think is the Kindle size.

Just send it as usual: one inch margins all around, 8.5 x 11 paper.
The Kindle does the adapting.

Add this to the list of one LESS thing you have to obsess over when sending work to agents.

I am a fan of your blog although I've never commented. However, when I read this post today, I realized your just the person I need!! If you would be so kind, would you please explain how you download manuscripts onto your kindle? I've been trying unsuccessfully and would REALLY appreciate a tip. Thanks, Donna Koppelman

I email it to my Kindle as a word .doc attachment.

Snazzy, huh!
