COST OF PUBLISHING -FREE

Why Choose Kindle?

The Kindle is a series of eReaders and tablets offered by Amazon. In parallel, the company has also constructed an entire eBook publishing platform that allows authors—any author—to reach potentially more than a billion readers around the world.

Along with the Kindle device, a Kindle app is available for nearly every major web browser, smartphone platform and for both Windows and Mac-based computers. Publish your work once via Amazon’s “Kindle Direct Publishing” platform and it instantly becomes available through the Kindle app on nearly any personal computing device.

Another reason to publish with Amazon’s Kindle platform is the fact that Amazon dominates the “eBook” market.

Finally, even for those with minimal computing skills, publishing on Amazon’s Kindle platform is relatively pain-free.

With these advantages in mind, here is the step-by-step guide to self-publishing your own works with Amazon’s tools.

1. Sign Up To Publish

Click “Get Started” to begin.

#
h2=. Add Title

With an account created, Amazon takes you to your “Kindle Dashboard.” This is where you will add your works and access reports on book sales.

If your work is ready to be published, click on “Add New Title.”

#
h2=. Enter Your Book Details

Here, you provide Amazon with details on your book, including title, authorship, book type, pricing and more. Note: You do not need to have an ISBN code when using Amazon.

#
h2=. Book Category

Amazon encourages you to add up to two “categories” for your book. This can include everything from “Body, Mind & Spirit” to “Dystopian Fiction.”

Recommendation: Chances are your book crosses more than two categories. Search Amazon for the book(s) that you think is most like yours. In the details page, Amazon includes the categories selected for that book. Use those.

#
h2=. You can also add up to seven keywords.

Recommendation: Think of the words readers might use to find your work in a search string. Choose those words. If it is a book about Steve Jobs, for example, you might include: Steve Jobs, Apple, iPhone, Macintosh, Silicon Valley, Ashton Kutcher, iPad.

#
h2=. Give Your Book A Cover

Even an eBook should have a cover, although it is not required.

Amazon provides guidelines for uploading cover images and also includes a rather limited tool to create your own cover.

Recommendation: I strongly encourage you to hire someone to create a visually appealing cover for your work if you don’t have the skills for this. Services such as eLance can connect you with graphic designers at affordable prices.

A poor cover image is likely to turn away potential buyers.

#
h2=. Time To Upload Your Book

Now comes the fun-scary part: uploading your book!

Luckily, Amazon makes this rather easy. First, it asks you to choose if you will enable digital rights management (DRM) or not. If you enable DRM, this makes it harder for others to share your work and potentially harder for it to be copied and sold without payment.

Odds are very high that you will never lose sales (or money) because your eBook did not have DRM enabled. My recommendation is to go DRM-free. Click “do not enable digital rights management.”

Now upload the book from your computer.

Amazon accepts the following formats:


*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. Word (DOC and DOCX)

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. HTML

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. ePub

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. Text

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. PDF

#
h2=. Formatting and Previewing

If your work has minimal formatting requirements—it looks like a normal work of fiction or non-fiction, for example—Amazon’s upload service is extremely good at retaining your formatting. Nonetheless, you should still preview your work even after successfully uploading it.

If your work contains numerous images, for example, and/or charts or other special formatting requirements, you may need to use a special program for that and then save the document in PDF format. Amazon’s upload service should retain the proper formatting.

Recommendation: It’s still best to always remember that an eBook is presented on a screen. Screens come in many sizes – from iPad Mini’s to iPhones to a new BlackBerry and many others. Works that include multiple graphics, say, may simply never look as good on a electronic screen as they do in print.

After uploading your work, use the “Online Previewer” link to see how your book will look on different devices. Then, from the drop down list, Amazon lets you see what your book will look like on select Kindle devices, iPhone and iPad. If you wish to see how it will look on other devices, or in a browser, you will need to download the “previewer” tool.

9. Set Your Price

Amazon lets you set nearly any price you wish for your book. However, there are two different royalty options: 35% or 70%. Obviously, you want the 70% royalty.

In nearly all cases, choosing the 70% royalty is the wise decision. Know this, however:


*
p={color:#000;background:#fff;}. If you price your book below $2.99, Amazon will only  offer the 35% royalty option.

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. In some smaller markets, Amazon only offers the 35% royalty. (The 70% option is available in the U.S., Canada, UK and most larger markets.)

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. When you choose the 70% royalty option, Amazon also deducts a small "delivery fee" for each book sold. This is their additional fee for wirelessly distributing your work, and is based on the file size of your work. In the U.S., this fee is presently set at 15 cents per megabyte. (A Word document of approximately 100,000 words and with minimal graphics is typically no more than 1 MB.)

*
p={color:#333;background:#fff;}. There is no delivery charge with the 35% royalty option.

Thus, if you charge $2.99 for your work and choose the 70% royalty option, your royalty for each book sold is likely to be:

$2.99 × .70 = $2.09 before delivery fee

$2.09 – .15 (delivery fee) = $1.94.

You earn $1.94 for each book sold. (Authors are solely responsible for paying taxes.)

You can designate your book for sale in only certain countries, or worldwide.

10. Finished!

Congratulations! You are no longer just an author, but an author whose book(s) is available across the world. Of course, it typically takes Amazon about 24-48 hours before your book is actually available for sale.

Once available, I also recommend you create an Amazon author page – a free service that links your bio with your book listing.

Some final notes.

1.Throughout this process, Amazon somewhat aggressively promotes their “KDP Select” program. With KDP Select, if you agree to publish your work on Kindle—exclusively—for 90 days (this can vary) and allow Amazon customers to borrow it for free, Amazon will pay you a small fee each time the book is borrowed. Typically, this fee is close to the royalty you would have received had the book actually been purchased.

2.You may asked to complete your tax interwiew, for this you need to disclose your pan card no. to amazon.

h2=. GO TO CREATESPACE.COM (FOR PRINT BOOK PUBLISHING)

COST OF PUBLISHING- FREE

Have you dreamed of seeing your ebook in print? Have you thought of using CreateSpace, Amazon’s print on demand service, to make your dream come true

Signing up with CreateSpace is easy. Go to their website https://www.createspace.com/ and open an account. You’ll receive a member ID number and dashboard. Your dashboard will look something like this, minus my blacked out information.

*
##
p={color:#000;}. Click the blue Add New Title button. This takes you to the Start Your New Project page.

##
p={color:#000;}. On the Start Your New Project page, fill in the name of your book, the type of project and choose a setup method.

*
p={color:#000;}. There are two choices:

##
p={color:#000;}. [*Guided: *]A step-by-step process with directions along the way. (I always choose this because I’d never remember the steps.)

##
p={color:#000;}. [*Expert: *]A streamlined single-page experience for those familiar with the process.

Click the Get Started button by your choice and move on to the next step.


*
##
p={color:#000;}. [*Title Information page: *]Fill in your book title, subtitle (if applicable), author name, contributors, series name and number (if applicable) and other details.

*
p={color:#000;}. Note: If you leave Publication Date blank, the date your book publishes on Createspace will be added. If you published the book previously, on Kindle for instance or with a traditional publisher, you can fill in the original pub date if you wish.

*
p={color:#000;}. Click Save & Continue.

4. [*ISBN: *]CreateSpace says, “An ISBN (number) is required to publish and distribute a book.” They offer four options. One is free.

5. Note: Compare the options carefully because once you make your choice it cannot be changed.Choose and click Continue.

6. [*Interior: *]Choose from:


*

black & white or color

*
p={color:#000;}. paper color (white or cream)

*
p={color:#000;}. trim size (size of your book). The most popular trim size is 6” x 9” – trade paperback size. Createspace does not offer standard paperback size.

Then comes the “fun” part, uploading your book!

You can either hire a Createspace professional to do it for you, with prices starting at $349, or you can do it yourself.

Do it yourself methods:


*

Upload your work as a print-ready .pdf, .doc, .docx, or .rtf file.

*
p={color:#000;}. Download a Word® Template, either a blank template or a formatted template with sample content designed for the trim size you choose. I use the formatted 6” x 9” template.

*
p={color:#000;}. The thumbnails on the left show how a Createspace formatted template is set up. Each pair of pages represents the front and back sides of one printed page. The left page of each pair would actually be the right hand page in a book, while the right one would be on the left (backside of right page.)

The midline in each pair represents the outside edge of the page; the left and right borders are the edge of the page that would be bound, forming the book’s spine. Because more space is necessary on the bound edge, the text must be offset closer to the outside edge (the center line of each pair.) See this spacing difference in the illustration above.

There is a table of contents included in the formatted template. If you don’t want one in your book, simply delete that pair of pages. You can also delete the dedication and acknowledgements pages if you wish, or you can add pages to the front matter, such as a list of your published books and/or “Praise for” pages with short review excerpts. I place this type of material before the title page as do traditional publishers.

TIP: Use section breaks between the elements of your front matter to maintain proper spacing. This also allows you to add page numbers when you come to the body of your story. If you want page numbers in the front matter, use Roman numerals.

Add alternating headers, placing your book title on the right hand pages and your author name on the left.

Regarding font styles, the CreateSpace conversion program doesn’t recognize all fonts, so it’s best to stick to standard ones unless you want to have problems.

I use Times New Roman 12 point for body text, varying sizes for chapter headings and in the front matter. Bold and italics are okay. Be careful to check your font for headers. I got in trouble once when an odd font snuck by me in a header. The Createspace program didn’t like it!

After you upload your formatted manuscript and it goes through the Createspace automated print check, view your book page by page using the Interior Reviewer.

If Createspace catches formatting errors, you will need to fix them and re-upload. This can be time consuming, but you want your baby to look good, right? In case you can’t figure out the glitch, email or call CreateSpace Support. Their people helped me through a couple roadblocks when I set up my first book for print.


*

Cover:

**
p={color:#000;}. Choose a finish for your book cover, either matte or glossy. This is new. Until recently, all covers were glossy.

**
p={color:#000;}. Next, choose how to submit your book cover. There are three methods:

***
p={color:#000;}. Build Your Cover Online with Cover Creator, a free Createspace tool to design your book covers. (See #7 below)

***
p={color:#000;}. Professional Cover Design, starting at $399.

***
p={color:#000;}. Upload a Print-Ready PDF Cover: Createspace provides detailed instructions for this method.

7. Using Cover Creator: Choose from several pages of pre-made Createspace cover designs (below on left) or design your own cover using a blank template (on right.)

#

This is the template I use.

##
p={color:#000;}. First, design the front cover (I do this offline) making sure your image has a DPI of at least 300. Anything less than that will be rejected by the Createspace program.

##
p={color:#000;}. After the front cover successfully loads, design the back cover. Include:

***
p={color:#000;}. a short, catchy blurb

***
p={color:#000;}. short review excerpts

***
p={color:#000;}. an author photo if you wish

Look at the back of paperback books for ideas, and be careful to leave space for the barcode and trimming, as per Createspace instructions.

#

Lastly, set up the spine.


#

[*Complete Setup: *]Review your project setup. If everything looks okay, submit your files for review. You can go back and make changes if you need to. When ready, submit for review.


#

Review: *]The CreateSpace automated review program makes sure your work passes muster for “manufacturing and cataloging”. If it does, you will be asked if you want to order a proof copy (at cost) for your final approval. I always do this because there could still be issues that need correcting. When you are satisfied, give Createspace the go-ahead to publish your print book.[*Note: Do the following while waiting for the automated review to be completed (it may take several hours or longer).


#

[*Distribution Channels: *]Choose distribution channels. Expanded Distribution used to cost $25 but is now FREE!

#
p={color:#000;}. [*Pricing: *]Set a price for your book. Use the built in calculator to determine what the royalties will be. Keep in mind that distributors usually discount the book price and Amazon will match the discounted price. If you set your price too low, you proceeds will suffer when the book is discounted. Of course you don’t want to price your book so high that it scares off readers.

#
p={color:#000;}. [*Description: *]Provide a description for your sales page. Assign a BISAC Category; add your author bio; set language, country of publication; choose search keywords; check for adult content if applicable and if you want large print.

In conclusion, take your time, follow directions on the site and, if you ever get stuck, contact Createspace support. Their people are courteous and helpful.
