What information do I put into Amazon KDP when I'm uploading my webcomic book?

First what I need to do is I need to download the book that I created in google docs. I download it as a docx file. I don't know why they added the "x" to the Microsoft word documents file extension?

Then I go over to Amazon KDP and I choose "create a book".

Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca
