Writing Jobs, Online Copywriting Work at Home - Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing


If you're an author trying to get published, you should start with Kindle Direct Publishing. Kindle Direct Publishing is Amazon's self-publishing platform. With KDP, you can publish your e-book in less than five minutes. Within 24 to 48 hours, your book will appear on Kindle stores worldwide. This is an excellent way to get your book out there and deem yourself a published author.

A friend that I met through Demand Media Studios turned me on to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing back in 2011.

At this point, Amazon wasn't nearly as popular as it is today. In fact, back then, I barely used Amazon, but today, it is my go-to site for online shopping and books. I have a Prime Membership and a Kindle Unlimited subscription. I also own two Amazon Kindles. Needless to say, the company is definitely on the come-up.

My friend brought KDP to my attention and reeled me in by sending me the story of Amanda Hocking. Amanda Hocking, a twenty-something year old, published her books with KDP and sold them between $0.99 and $2.99 each. She sells around 100,000 copies each month and as a result, she has become a millionaire!

Of course, that was back in 2011, but she is still going strong today. On Facebook, Hocking has over 69,000 followers. She continues to write books and self-promote, while enjoying a successful writing career.

Kindle Direct Publishing is Amazon's self-publishing platform. With KDP, you can publish your e-book in less than 5 minutes and your book will appear in Kindle stores worldwide within 24 and 48 hours. This is an excellent way to get your first book out there and deem yourself a published author.

How does Kindle Direct Publishing pay? How much can you earn?

You can earn up to 70% of royalties on the sale of your books, plus more through Kindle Unlimited and the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. You maintain control of your rights and you set your own list prices. You can make changes to your book at any time.

Writers are paid via Direct Deposit when their account reaches $10. Alternatively, you can choose to be paid by check when your account reaches $100. Earning 70% from your sales is excellent, especially considering that YOU dictate how much your content is worth. While Amanda Hocking's situation might not be typical, it does show that there is some major earning potential with Kindle Direct Publishing.
