I would never have attempted to publish my own books at any other time in our history. That's a bold statement... The thing is, the Kindle revolution has made it so easy that if you aspire to be a published author, now IS the time. Today, you don't have to send out hundreds of letters to publishers or agents. You don't have to receive hundreds of rejection letters back. Even if you do get a literary agent interested in your work, there are so many people involved in the decision to publish your book that there's no guarantee you'll get it in print. That's not even mentioning how your profits will be eaten away by the various people involved in the process. Each will take their cut. Today, you can write a book and self-publish it on Amazon for FREE and ANYONE can do it. Not only that, but you can earn up to 70% royalties on your book sales! We are at a special time in history where opportunity really is knocking. My entire strategy for formatting, self-publishing and promoting your Kindle & paperback books on Amazon is covered in this book. 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! By following the step-by-step instructions in this book, 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. A single document can be used to create both your Kindle and paperback versions.* Create a table of contents properly so that it works with the Kindle reader and is properly formatted for your paperback version.* Create book covers, or where you can get them from if you are not a designer.* Submit your books so they have the best possible chance of ranking in Amazon's search engine.* Create formatted book descriptions on Amazon.* How to update your book.* How to promote your book for free.* How to set up your Author Central profile.* How to make use of the look inside feature in your books.* Why serialization of books works, and how to do it.* Basic Text Formatting.* Which Font?* Links and formatting checks.* Page Numbering in Word.* Adding a new paperback.* Price calculator and deciding on Trim size.* Common formatting problems.* Book Cover Templates.* Submitting the paperback and choosing distribution channels.* Tracking sales, plus lots of other stuff ...You can use Amazon's "Look Inside" feature to check out this book before you buy it.

Yes, you can publish for free. The industry has changed. You have the tools available to publish a high quality book without having to pay thousands.

Do you want to quit your day job and follow your dream as a published writer? A comprehensive, hyperbole-free introduction to publishing your work on Amazon's KDP *Now with bonus addendum "The Power of Free on Amazon Kindle"* The rise of self-publishing on has recently allowed writers around the world to realize their dream of publishing their books in the world's largest book stores. The facts speak for themselves - write and publish a book today and it can earn you the passive income you need to get writing on the next book...and the next one after that. Glen Chapman (author of "The Power of Free on Amazon Kindle") outlines everything you need to know to publish and market your book, with a particular focus on Amazon, by far the biggest eBook store in the world. This is the guide he wishes he had read when he was starting out! Including - - Getting Started - Formatting Your Book - Creating Effective Book Covers that Sell - Publishing Your First Book through KDP - The importance of getting those first few sales to increase visibility - Coming Up With the Perfect Title and Synopsis - Pricing Strategy - KDP Select "" Do You Go Exclusive or Play the Field? - Should You Read Reviews of Your Books? - The Value of Promoting Outside of Amazon - Should You Take Advantage of KDP Select Free Days? - Death & Taxes - Amazon Alternatives - The Importance of Genuine Reviews - Paid Promotion "" Is it worth it? - The Importance of Blogs - Social Marketing - Perma-Free - Kindle Countdown Deals - Those Pesky Refunds - Fiction v Non-Fiction - Print on Demand - The Amazon algorithms - Links & Resources There are some fabulous publishing guides out there (such as Write.Publish.Repeat), but there are also a lot of hyped up books that overstate your chances of becoming a best-seller and sound like they are selling you an Ab-Roller or a ShamWow. Unless lightning just happens to strike in the right place, the only thing that will get you a best-seller is a lot of writing and a lot of clever promotion. It's a slow grind that is only for those passionate about writing. If you are looking for a source of income to replace your blog advertising or other get rich quick scheme, this is not the guide for you. If you can think of nothing better than using your words to weave magic for the widest possible audience (and get paid for it to boot!), this guide may just be up your alley.

I am the author of eight books -- three paperbacks and eight ebooks. Overall I have been successful in getting my books published and sold. However, I have made mistakes and learned some valuable lessons along the way. This book is far from a complete resource on how to write, publish and market your books. The purpose of my book is to share with you my insights and experiences based on my mistakes and lessons learned. In doing so, my hope is to save you time and money and make your publishing experience less onerous, more enjoyable and hopefully profitable. For example, do you know that in many countries there is a national organization that collects fees from organizations (e.g. schools, government) for the right to copy published works? These fees are then passed on to the registered authors/publishers. Note: The operating processes and eligibility requirements of these organizations vary from country to country.

Is the idea of self-publishing daunting to you? According to a New York Times report, 81% of Americans aspire to write a book but few ever write one and even fewer ever publish a book.
