Publish a Book on Kindle

February 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 156

If you've chosen to publish a book on Kindle you've already made a very wise decision. The chances of a new author getting a contract with a traditional publisher are all but zero. For many decades publishers held the whip hand. They wielded the power to destroy an author's career, before it even began. No more. With the inception of the e-book and companies like Amazon providing the launch platform, the sky really is the limit. There are other platforms of course, but Amazon is by far the largest and the easiest to publish to.

Although the actual publishing process is fairly straightforward it can become frustratingly confusing when internet searches provide such diverse and confusing information. One of the reasons this is so is because the technology has changed. Much of the information on the internet is out of date, but will continue to confuse for years to come.

The real information will tell you the following.

How to format your work correctly.How to properly insert images in your document and what size they should be.How to clean up the contents of your work.How to 'Jet Wash' public domain titles so that they read correctly.How to publish using Microsoft Word alone, without html.How to publish your work with an html editor. (This may be your choice, but I no longer do this)How to files so that you can send free copies of your work to your friends.How to easily build search engine optimization into your book description.How to properly use keywords when you publish your book and tell you exactly what Amazon actually mean when they say you can have only seven keywords. (important this one)Explain how you can promote your work, free of charge, outside of Amazon to greatly increase your target audience

Having spent possibly years creating your masterpiece, the last thing you need to be worrying about is how to publish a book on Kindle. Once you have the proper 'road-map', something that you can refer back to when you write your second book, the pressure is off.

You may or may not know this, so it may be helpful. Many people, generally people who don't have their own book written, edit and publish to Kindle, works from the public domain. This is where the phrase 'Jet Wash' referenced above comes in. Amazon changed the rules about this type of publishing in March 2011, making it essential that it is done properly. If you are publishing public domain works this information is vital.

Whether you are an original author, earning 70% commissions on Kindle, or a public domain editor and publisher, earning 35% commissions, you need this information. If you choose to publish a book on Kindle, all the information is available through the link below. The information is all in one place, concise and to the point. Publish a Book on Kindle
