, Self-publishing is easier than at any time in our history. Amazon allows us to self-publish our book, with zero costs up front. No more writing to publishers and waiting for rejection letters. Today, you can write and publish your own books on Amazon without an agent or publisher. Within 24 hours of uploading, your book can be available for sale on the world's best-known bookstore. Amazon will even pay you up to 70% royalties on every book sold. Self-Publishing on Amazon is a compilation of two of my books. One on Kindle Publishing and the other on Createspace Publishing. Kindle Publishing - Format, Publish & Promote your Books on Kindle My complete strategy for formatting, publishing and promoting your books on Kindle is documented in this book. It's what I did, and what I still do with every new book I release. You don't need to be a tech wizard, as each step is described in great detail with plenty of screenshots. If you can use a word processor, you can publish your work on Amazon! You'll know how to: -* Check if there is a hungry market for your book.* - Find the best keywords and know how to use them to help your book rank higher in Amazon.* - Estimate sales of other Kindle books.* - Format your book as you write it, without having to buy any tools or hire someone to do it for you.* - Create a table of contents properly so that it works with the Kindle reader.

My own success with Kindle PublishingI published my first Kindle book in August 2012. By December 2012 (just 5 months later), I was making what many people consider to be a full time income from my books. As part of my learning process, I setup a Facebook page in July 2012 to share my Kindle publishing journey (there is a link to the Facebook page inside this book). On that Facebook page, I shared everything, even my month by month income reports. I also helped those who asked for it (I still do). What I found was a huge and growing audience for this type of work, and ultimately, that's why I wrote this book. Createspace PublishingCreatespace is a fantastic opportunity for writers. You publish your book, and if someone buys it, Createspace takes care of the rest. All the author needs to do is wait to be paid. How's that for hands-free and risk-free publishing? This book takes you step-by-step through my own process for publishing.
