My ebook Comfort Soups To Keep You Warm is now available in the Kindle Store on Amazon.com.uk.ca.etc.etc. I’ve always sold it directly from my website before with a kindle version, epub version and pdf version, but now you can get JUST the kindle version if you want for a cheaper price. (You won’t get any of my standard bonuses if you buy it directly through Amazon though).
How Do Authors Use The Amazon Kindle Store?
Amazon encourages authors and publishers to price ALL of their Kindle Books AT or BELOW $9.99. This is why you see Kindle versions generally that price, the author actually makes a higher percentage of commission (70%) if they sell it for cheaper than if they list it for $14.99 and up. (Anything above $9.99 and your commission is only 30%).
So just in case you didn’t know, that’s how Amazon’s Kindle Store works for those who want to publish their own ebooks. If you want to sell your own Kindle Ebook, first have someone create the file (from word) into a .MOBI or other kindle supported file. You can use contract workers at elance.com to do this for you.
Then once it’s ready and you’ve double-checked that everything looks right you can submit it to the Kindle Publishing website at kdp.amazon.com.
