Now that you have a paperback book, you can upload it on Kindle. If you’re not familiar with Kindle, it is a digital device that you can download multiple books and magazines to. You have to have an Amazon account in order to purchase books to download, however you do not need a Kindle device. They have an app on the iPhone and most smartphones and tablets to use.
Having your book on Amazon Kindle is just another way to distribute your book to as many people as possible. People are divided between which method they prefer to read their information. I personally prefer to have a real book in my hand, to flip through it and be able to autograph it. Others prefer digital. It is convenient because you can hold hundreds of books in one small, compact gadget. Having your book in both formats is important.
In order to publish a book on Kindle you do need to have an Amazon account. If you already do, you can log in with those same credentials. If you don’t have an account you will need to sign up for one. In this chapter of my book, How to Write and Publish a Book Yourself, I will walk you through how to do this as well as:
- The KDP Select Program (to reach more readers and customers)
- Book’s Copyright and Publishing Rights
- Uploading Your Cover
- Selecting a Digital Rights Management (DRM) (to inhibit unauthorized distribution of the Kindle book)
