For Kindle Fire owners downloading/adding fanfic either by download or by calibre.
If your fic keeps ending up showing in Documents instead of Books:
1.) Select all fanfiction files.
2.) Click on Convert.
3.) On the Mobi Output, look for the last bit on Kindle that has [PDoc} and erase [PDoc].
4.) Say yes to reconverting your files.
If any of your bookcovers, both fanfiction and regular, start showing up blank for no reason in particular:
Posted at link, reproducing here:

- click Amazon Kindle
- click the buttons "Force Stop", "Clear Data", Clear Cache" (might not be needed)
- go back to Home

Calibre also has a neat plugin for creating your own bookcovers that lets you add metadata to it, so currently my covers all have the AO3 symbol, title, author, pairing, fandom, and where I downloaded them from.
Does anyone know off the top of their heads how to edit Calibre's metadata settings so when you add a book, it pulls all the metadata, not just title and author? I added custom metadata fields for fandom and pairing, but I still have enter it manually instead of it pulling from the file. Anyone?
