Kindle Publishing Secrets – It’s Not As Hard As You Think To Publish With The Kindle Store

Well, I’m here to tell you that anyone can be a writer and publisher through Kindle Publishing, which is a division of Amazon Inc. Yes, you heard me right. I’m not kidding.

Publishing on Kindle is not as difficult as you think and there are ways to achieve it and become an author. Thanks to Amazon, anyone with a little education can upload a manuscript and start selling it in a matter of days, not months.

Here in this article, I am going to tell you some Kindle book publishing secrets that you did not know about.

Are you ready? Here we go.

1) Your Kindle book doesn’t have to be 100 pages.

Some people have thought of writing books and claiming the prestigious title of being an author, but have been intimidated by the idea of ​​sitting down and writing pages and pages of words that eventually add up to hundreds of pages.

In fact, in the world of publishing old physical books, a book had to have a minimum of pages. But thanks to the digital world and Amazon, that restriction no longer exists.

A kindle eBook can have any number of pages and people will keep buying it.

What people are looking for is information or a solution to a problem. They look for information that provides them with the solution to their problems. The number of pages doesn’t really matter to them. Once you can offer the solution, that’s what counts.

And if you can do it in fewer pages, the better for them. Who wants to be reading hundreds of pages online? I personally will not read such a book. My limit is 50 pages. If you can’t give me the necessary information in that number of pages, I’m afraid I’m going to skip over your eBook. This is true for so many people online.

Your Kindle eBook can be between 4 and 10 pages maximum. Are you capable of writing a book of that number of pages? I bet you can. Then you can write and publish eBooks on Amazon. Yes, you read me right.

2) Kindle book pages are quite a bit smaller than Microsoft Word pages.

Yes, I discovered this with my first eBook on Amazon.

The size of the Word document you use while preparing or writing your manuscript is quite different from what appears in Kindle Reader. If you look at the Kindle reader, you’ll find that it’s pretty small.

So a twenty page word book, when you load it up and view it on the kindle, it will be much more than it originally was. This was a pleasant surprise for me.

Imagine you have a 30 page book. By the time you upload this to Amazon and it becomes a Kindle eBook, you can have the same eBook listed as 40-46 pages in the Kindle Store.

3) You may already have the necessary content for your book

If you’ve been writing some niche content online (for example, a blog or articles), you may already have a lot of materials to create your Kindle eBook.

Take for example someone who has been writing about how to make money online. All you need is to organize a few of your previous writings or articles in a logical way, and boom, you have a Kindle eBook.

I once organized a series of articles I had on Beauty Tips and titled them appropriately. I posted this on Amazon as a Kindle eBook and a physical book through their old division called – Createspace. That division has now been merged into the Kindle publishing section.

The articles that you have written before, you can even stretch or add to them by simply adding some images to your ebook. Bang, you have your Kindle eBook.

A tip here. So load your eBook with a lot of images or Amazon will change you a lot for it. They claim it increases their shipping cost. If this is a lot, it can reduce your profit. I generally don’t use images in my kindle ebooks, except when necessary, like a cookbook.

4) Amazon makes it so easy that anyone can be a publisher.

Amazon changed the publishing business forever. With Amazon, anyone can upload a manuscript of any length and have it published in a matter of hours, as long as the content is original.

No more stories of being rejected by every publisher you submitted your manuscript to. I have uploaded eBooks that were approved and placed in Kindle stores in less than 5-10 hours. And some of these e-books had been sold a few days later. This was unheard of in the old days where there was no Kindle or any of the other readers.

Amazon has made it easy for everyone.

Do you know that you don’t need to do any special formatting or conversion for your eBooks? You just need to prepare and submit your manuscript as a Word document, which is the same way you typed it on your PC. If you wish, you can also submit your manuscript in PDF format. Personally, I send all my Kindle eBooks as a Word document and let Amazon handle the technicalities for me.

Finally, when you’ve finished your manuscript and are ready to upload and publish it, Amazon has made it a simple step-by-step process that you can follow and submit your manuscript for processing and approval. Kindle eBooks are generally approved and published within 24 hours.

As you have seen in this article, Kindly Publishing is not as difficult as it seems.

I often say that publishing on Kindle is something anyone can do online and make money doing it.

You don’t even have to do the deed. They are people on many freelance sites that will even write and prepare your Kindle eBooks for a small amount of money. You can get a short eBook written for you at a cost of $20-$30. You will publish this under your name and keep making hundreds from it. Many people you hear about today as Authors are actually doing exactly this on Amazon.

I think from this article, you have seen that it is not as difficult or intimidating as you thought, being an author and publisher on Amazon.

Anyone can be an author today, thanks to Amazon and its incredible creation: the Kindle Reader.
