What's with Kindle?
That is your words, that is your history; a history of emotionalism and suffering, heartache and yearning, deeds, acts of force, sexuality, death and metamorphosis. Except to have a reader, your work must be public. Wherever once authors had to depend on agencies and editors to view their work, anyone can publish their novel, essays or non-fiction masterpieces on Amazon's Kindle platforms.
What's with Kindle? Kindle is a range of eReaders and tables available from Amazon. At the same time, the organization has built a complete e-book publication plattform with which writers - any writer - can potentially target more than one billion people around the globe. Together with the Kindle unit, a Kindle application is available for almost all popular web browsers, smart phone platforms, Windows and Mac-based workstations.
Share your work once via Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing and it' s available on almost any PC now. A further motivation for using Amazon's Kindle plattform is the fact that Amazon is dominating the eBook segment. After all, even for those with minimum computer knowledge, the release on the Amazon Kindle is relatively painless.
Keeping these benefits in the back of your minds, here is the step-by-step tutorial for self-publishing your own works using Amazon software suite. You will find a hyperlink to "independent publication with us" at the end of the Amazon homepage. They' re willing to publish in Kindle. You' ll need to use your current Amazon user profile or use one.
Please note: You may be asked to enter extra information, which includes your bank details, as Amazon will transfer your license fees to your bankroll every quarter. Amazon guides you to your Kindle Dashboard with a set up Amazon user name. "Here you can upload your works and get book sale reviews.
Here you give Amazon the book information, which includes the book name, author, book style, price and more. Notice: You do not need an ISBN when using Amazon. Probabilities are your book will cross more than two classes. Look at Amazon for the books you think are most similar to you.
On the detail page Amazon contains the chosen category for this book. Remember the words reader could use to find your work in a keyword. For example, if it is a book about Steve Jobs, you could insert it: An e-book should also have a sleeve, although it is not necessary.
Amazons offers policies for the upload of covers and also contains a rather restricted utility for creating your own covers. If you don't have the right capabilities, I strongly recommend hiring someone to make a visual impact with you. If the title picture is bad, it can repel prospective purchasers.
Here comes the creepy part: posting your book! Fortunately, Amazon makes this quite simple. When you activate DRM, it becomes more difficult for others to copy and sell your work without paying. Now, download the book from your computer. Amazons accept the following formats:
When your work has minimum reformatting needs - it looks like a regular nonfiction book, for example - Amazon's file transfer services are very good at maintaining your reformat. Nevertheless, you should still get a sneak peek of your work after a successful file-up. For example, if your work contains many pictures and/or graphics or other specific formats, you may need to use a specific application and then store the file in PDF then.
Amazon's file transfer services should keep the correct format. Once you have uploaded your work, you can use the Online Previewer to see how your book will look on different machines. From the dropdown menu you can then see what your book will look like on selected Kindle units, iPhone and iPad.
With Amazon you can specify almost any prize for your book. There are, however, two different licensing models: Obviously you want the 70% license fee. The choice of the 70% licence fee is the smart choice in almost all cases. You know this however: If you value your book under $2. 99, Amazon offers only the 35% donation possibility.
No shipping costs with the 35% license options. So, if you are charging $2. 99 for your work and choosing the 70% donation possibility, your donation for each book sold is likely: $2. 09 - . Your book can only be offered for purchase in certain markets or the world.
It usually will take 24-48 hrs until your book is actually for purchase. As soon as available, I also suggest that you start creating an Amazon authors page - a free of charge feature that will link your biography to your book list. In the course of this trial, Amazon is promoting its KDP Select programme somewhat aggressive.
If you choose KDP Select to publish your work for 90 exclusive 90 day period (this may vary) and give Amazon clients the opportunity to rent it for free, Amazon will charge you a small charge each book loan. Usually this charge is near the license charge you would have got if the book had actually been bought.
Of course, Amazon wants all their works to be available only through Amazon. In view of Amazon's position in the industry, you may want to join KDP Select. Naturally, this excludes those who choose Apple's iBooks services or any other platforms from purchasing your work for three inches.
