Easily Get Published With Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle is a cool tool for those who loves books-you can read the WebToolsWiki post about that here. As for Publishing, it makes it so easy to get your book out into the marketplace where millions can access it. And you and Amazon both get paid. No need for writing query letters, hoping and praying they say yes and getting bummed when the rejection letters pile up.

Now, you can publish and go. The hardest part of this process is your book. You have to want to make it work, write it, edit it, format it. Kindle is the easy part. And this post is going to show you how to get your book published.

8 Steps To Get Your eBook Published on Amazon Kindle

1. If you don’t have an account, get one. If you do, then great! Click here and sign in. This link takes you to the KDP site where you publish your ebook.

2. Once your account is set up, your home page or dashboard will look like the image below. The bookshelf is where your publishing projects are. If your book is published, it will say published. If not, it will say draft or pre order draft is live.  To get started on publishing your book, click Add New Title.

3. Once you have clicked the Add New Title button, there are two major steps and an option third one:

  • Your Book
  • Rights & Pricing
  • KDP Select Program (optional)

4. Fill out the form with all the book details. The Cover photo should be 2500X2500 pixels for best results. As for formatting, Kindle prefers word documents to pdf files but both are accepted as are Word (Doc or DocX), HTML, MOBI, ePUB, RTF, TXT, and Adobe PDF. So you can easily use Adobe InDesign to format and publish as a PDF. If you are adding images to your book, PDF is not recommended.

5. ISBN. Amazon Kindle does not assign ISBN. If you want one, you can always publish your book in print. Publishers such as CreateSpace will give you an ISBN free of charge. If you have one, you will be able to add it to your Kindle ebook.

6. Your royalties are either 35% or 70% and Amazon will show you how much you are getting once you fill out the pricing. Also, you would set rather people can lend the ebook to others (great if you are trying to get your book read but not great if you want to get paid), and also specify your worldwide publishing rights.

7. Once you are ready, click the agreement check box and publish your book. The final version usually takes 12 hours. And you can always go back and edit your book. To do so, go to your bookshelf and click on the title.

8. KDP Select, the optional step. If you have other digital forms or plan to have other digital and print forms of your book, then you can not join the KDP Select program.   KDP Select helps you to reach even more readers and gives you the opportunity to earn more money. You also have to have this enabled to make your ebook available for lending.  KDP Select also makes your book available for Kindle Unlimited–where members pay a monthly fee and read all the books they want. Learn more about KDP Select here. If you do want to have your book in print later on, you can always take your book out of the KDP Select program.
