It’s Friday and my first post on the New Hot Topic Friday. I figured at the end of the week, why not discuss news and products that can help us with our books and business. Today I am going to tell you how to turn your book into a Kindle Ready Version.
It is very simple. I did it myself last year and have earned a lot of sales with my book being on Kindle. With our book society turning to Apple, Nook and Kindle, there’s no reason why your book should not be on Kindle. The first thing you need to do is format your book.
Formatting is not as hard as it seems. In fact, Amazon provides a detailed video on how to format your for Kindle. DO NOT skip any step in this video. Be sure that you’ve done every step.
Once your book is formatted for Kindle it’s time to upload your work. All of the uploading takes just a few minutes. The site makes sure that there are no errors. You will have a chance to review your work. You upload your information (Cover, author of the book and price) Speaking of price, on Kindle you get 70% of your sales. That’s extraordinary! There’s no middle man or anything.
The biggy, is to make sure you have the rights to your book. If you do not have the rights to your book, you will need to go through your publisher to get permission to post your book on Kindle. So be sure that you own the contents.
Once you have finished the process, it takes from 12-24 hours for your book to be available. Once Amazon sends you an email saying your book is ready, I suggest you buy a copy of your book to see it the way your readers will see it.
And that’s about it!
Before you get started with the process, watch this video. Have your book up on your computer screen so you are ready to get started. if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me below.
If you feel that this kindle process is just too much for you, I do provide the service of doing it for you.
