Publishing KDP Activity books, including word search books, can be very challenging. Finding good word lists, creating an original interior and cover and then putting it all together to upload to Amazon are essential to creating good books that sell. Using the new Book Bolt studio software now makes the whole process of creating puzzle books a lot easier. I show you where to find word lists and how to create an attractive cover and a book interior, in this software, ready to upload to Amazon. And the process is fast.

About this video – In this video I show you how to create a word search book fast in Book Bolt.
Is there a free tool to create puzzles and crossword?
Right… time to focus 🤪!! This is my next project 👍🏼
K trips up most people – it's for blacK, which is a bit weird.
Great video Paul. I like the tools Book Bolt has, but there are some things I wish I could do. The main one is having some control over the search words. Is it possible to change the font size of these and make them capitalised to match the search grid? Younger kids may struggle switching upper to lower case in their heads.
Hello, in my case that book Bolt is expensive in Colombia.
This was excellent Paul. I thought I was the only one who used XMas. 🤣 Thank you for making this video. Great options. Have a great week. 🙌🏼😱💯🙏🏼☕🎉
Is it right to mention that we must not put a space in between 2 words as this puts a blank in the word grid where a letter should be, just a thought to mention, as I have just discovered why there are gaps in the gris. Gotta go fix that now. Cheers Paul.
Hi Paul, any idea how to create a spiral bound book for KDP?
Thanks for sharing these ideas with us. 👍 Do you find these types of medium Content books are more seasonal?
I did all this just to find out I have to have the pro account in Book Bolt. 😞
Currently working on my own KDP journey, your content is really helping out, about to publish my first coloring book very soon and build up from there! The journey will be fun and succesfull!
I've tried word search a little, didn't succeed and moved on to another niches. Considering going back to it now.
Can the bookbolt studio work on smartphone maybe putting it in desktop mode
Sorry where is link for word search theme? Thanks
Good video Paul. I just brought Affinity Designer (Windows) so I'll be using that to do my book covers for my brand of books. I did two new books for my brand-one was a Thanksgiving coloring book for kids and the other was a Halloween word search book and I did some promoting on my brand's social media-Instagram and Tik Tok.
Thanks, for another great video. Paul, some puzzle-making software allows you to screen for offensive words. In particular when the spelling is reversed. Do you know if this has that feature?
Vert clear, very good, thank you Paul!!!
This is an excellent tutorial. am new to this. Have never published anything at all. I followed your tutorial and took notes. I watched it several times and I am still lost on the part where you said to download the DOT BACKGROUND. Where does that come from? Where do I get the DOT TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND from?
Thank you so much for all the research and work that you put into creating these tutorials.
Very clear step by step . Thank you .
I just started my puzzle but I see I have some blank spaces on some of my puzzles where there is a two word,wording . Is there a way that I can get around that without putting the word together? (Apple pie, Applepie)
I really want to make a puzzle book, but I'm worried about duplicate copyright and trademark issues. I'm afraid that I will lose my account, word search book look almost the same on every page, only the words
Hi! The K in CMYK stands for black and it is better for printing unlike RGB which is better for screens, either way I find they it doesn't make a big difference, it depends on the printing method and the colors.
When you put in the number of pages, do you have to add in the solutions pages too? For example, if I'm making 60 puzzles do I make a 60 page book or 120 page? I'm having trouble with this. When I do 60, I get no solutions. When I do 120, I get the error message that I don't have enough words.
Thanks Paul great video. K means the key or keyline colour in CMYK, usually being Black.
Awesome video! Thank you. I have a question. There are holes in my word search due to spaces between words like "Merry Christmas." Is there any way around that?
Thank You! One question: do you do dubbel page or live every other page blank, as in a colouring book?
I have 4 books in draft on Amazon KDP. When do they turn to published? It’s been a few days now. Any thoughts? Thank you.
Thank you my friend, for this excellent video. Question, how do I add more pictures to my Amazon low content book listing? I already published my first low content book but Amazon only used 1 picture for that, the main book cover. Thank you
My book have been published on amazon for more than 72 hours,yet still in "review"
When I upload the file… and put in the metrics, then submit… It keeps saying "not enough words in CVS file" I have about 255 words…. I tried to modify a few times, add more pages, etc. not sure what's off here? Have you run into this?
🎉 Great job Paul Marles
Would connect with you
I made a puzzle and marked the add answers at the bottom of the page but answers didn't show up after i finished creating the puzzle
Hi Paul, thanks for this. Do all the words have to be single words or can they be word phrases, if so do they need to be written as one word in the list or as the word phrase, eg, christmas time. / christmastime ? thanks
I currently working on some word search books.
Working on my Christmas word search as I watch this video. Already posted my Autumn word search. 😊
Paul, I can't thank you enough. you are a God send. I found you yesterday and watched 3 videos I think the first video was Affinity Designer as I am also interested in doing digital templates, then I saw your KDP and got addicted. Last night I did the Canava tutorial and did my first book. I watched the publishing video but have not published my book yet. Can I use book bolt for other languages for example Wordsearch will the answers be created too? I'll definitely use your code for the book bolt. You are so honest and genuine and not trying to sell anything while you sharing your knowledge and teaching us. Thank you, Paul
Book Bolt has certainly improved since the last time I looked at it. Thanks for the video.
hi how to make the words bigger in the puzzle ?
Paul I noticed Santa’s feet and hat run past the bleed line to the edge of the page. Will they get cut off in the print process? 🙏 thanks
Hi. Great video. I used your code and am excited to give this a try. I have one question: Do you happen to repeat words for your puzzles? Or, in every puzzle, do you have brand new words? Thank you.
