Sample Content Preview
Book Release Date – Choose a date for your book release or choose to publish it immediately upon approval. It’s a good idea to pick a publication date, because if your manuscript looks wrong in the preview phase you can save it and upload the corrected version by the date specified.
Note: Don’t miss your upload date, which is usually about 10 days before the date you choose to publish your book. If you do, they’ll disable your ability to offer preorders for an entire year.
Upload Book Cover (or Use Cover Creator) – One of the most important parts of your book is the cover. Spend some money getting a professional cover created when you can. This will make your book more salable. You can try Fiverr.com, Upwork.com and other online places to find a graphic designer.
Upload Your Book File – Upload the book file whether it’s .mobi or an MS Word document. This might take a moment. Kindle will check your spelling and alert you to any issues.
Don’t forget to save your work.
It’s highly recommended that you take the time to preview your book. The online version or the downloadable versions are available right inside the system. If you look at the preview and it’s not working right, save “as a draft” and then you can fix the manuscript and upload it again without having to re-do all the other work you did. If it looks good, save and continue.
Now you’re on the next page of things to do to finalize your book publishing on KDP.
Verify Your Publishing Territories – You can choose individual places of relevance or you can publish worldwide. It is recommended to choose the individual territories where your audience is. This takes more work but will help you get more sales.
Set Your Prices – Pricing can be hard to do but has to be mostly personal preference. If you want a 70% royalty you’ll need to price your book between $2.99 and $9.99. For 35% royalty, you can set your price between .99 cents and $200.00.
Note: Kindle has a service where they can help you price your book based on other books like yours. It’s free and highly recommended to help maximize your earnings.
If you’re going to have a print version, then you can choose to “Kindle MatchBook” which will give your Kindle book to print buyers for free. You can also click to allow lending for the book, which means that a buyer can buy it, and then lend it to a friend for a few days.
Click to agree to the terms and then click either save as draft or you can go ahead and submit. You can always come back and edit things later via your KDP Bookshelf.
After you click, you know you’re on your way to being a Published Author.
Marketing Your Book
After your book is approved you’ll need to start marketing your book. There are some tried and true ways of doing so that you should know about.
Book Page – A page for your book can have its own domain or you can add it to your blog or website. You can list review types that aren’t allowed on Amazon, such as paid reviews which are actually somewhat standard in the publishing industry.
Author Page – To create an Author’s Page on Amazon you’ll need to create an account on Amazon’s Author Central. This is essential in order to claim your books when they’re published. In addition to the typical profile and headshot, you can include video, feeds for your blogs, a Twitter feed, and social sharing. You can also include any events you will be attending or hosting.
Getting Book Reviews – Getting book reviews will help you move up in the ranks on Amazon. But, don’t use shady methods for getting reviews. If they are doing the review with a free book they should state such. Do not pay people to write Amazon reviews for you.
Building an Audience – Use your blog, social media, your author’s page, and website to build an audience for your book by writing about, and talking about the things your audience enjoys, needs or wants that are related to your book. Share with everyone. Advertise on Facebook or other social media and in the back of relevant print publications.
Chances are, if you’ve done a good job with the title, description, and book cover you’ll make at least one sale. It really is that easy with Kindle Publishing.
Now you have the low down on publishing your book on Kindle. It’s a lot easier than you may have thought. Though, with all the details to pay attention to it, can get confusing and feel daunting. But, the very best place to get started is to start writing your book. You can’t worry about the details until you actually write your book.
When your book is finished, and you gather all the information, you’ll be published within a day or two of starting the process of uploading your book to Kindle Direct Publishing. Don’t hesitate to get started today.Other Details
