At last, I have found answers for my Kindle Direct Publishing dilemmas. I found the answers on Kindles Community board. That is where authors go to ask other authors and publishers for help as they attempt to format their manual into an epublished book.
|"How to Transform a Word File to a Kindle Ready MOBI Book" by jtbigtoad
One of the (many) posts is called: How to Transform a Word File to a Kindle Ready Mobi book. It is reader friendly and will take you through the whole process without causing you to hyperventilate. The author of this post goes by the name of jtbigtoad. I printed his notes out. They are 9 pages of well written instructions. I am forever grateful to him. I wish you the same success.

Now, I will create an author's page for my storybook, Adolfo and Athena. I am so happy.
