After clicking on the + Kindle eBook icon or the + Paperback on the Bookshelf homepage, you'll be redirected to the appropriate page. The steps are straightforward, each with a few lines of information explaining the information that you'll be inputting.
Remember that description I mentioned earlier? It's on this page that you'll have the chance to type out that description for your book. You'll also have the chance type keywords which will help describe your book and categorize where it belongs in the virtual library.
Once you've typed everything, click on Save and Continue in the yellow button at the bottom left of the screen.
This will redirect you to the next page called Kindle eBook Content. This is where you can upload your manuscript and cover art. It's also where you can preview the format of your book.
Once everything looks good, click on Save and Continue in the yellow button at the bottom left of the screen.
The third and final page is the Kindle eBook Pricing where you can set the price of your book, the distribution areas, as well as your royalty plan. The most you can claim through Amazon is 70%, meaning that Amazon will keep 30% of the revenue your book makes as a fee to keep the book on the Kindle platform.
Once all of the information is good to go, click on Publish Your Kindle eBook or Publish Your Paperback Book in the yellow bar at the bottom of your screen and voila! You have published a book in your name!
