Inserting Links in Word for Kindle

You can add links to various websites, your books, your table of contents to your eBooks, as well as links within your book to a glossary or section of interest. Once you’re finished with your editing and basic formatting you can start to add your links.

To add a clickable link to your website or books, go to the site or the product page of your book, and right click and save the URL. You then go to the relevant word or words that you want to add the link to. Highlight them—for instance, the title of your book, then right click on what you’ve highlighted. In the box that appears, click on Hyperlink.

We’ve already shared how to use the hyperlink functions on Word to create the required NCX Table of Contents for Amazon, so the final bit of linking advice would be for within the body of your book.

To do this, first create a bookmark by highlighting the source word or phrase that you want to link to another section in your book. Go to the Insert tab, and click on the Bookmark icon.

H3
Write the name of the bookmark in the required field, using only lower case lettering and numbers with no spaces in between. Click OK.

H4
Then go to the destination text and do the same thing with the bookmark name for that.

H5
Highlight your source word/s and from the same tab select Hyperlink.

H6
Select Place In This Document and select the destination bookmark. Click OK.

Finally repeat the process from the destination to the source, and there you have it.
