t is now possible for authors to self-publish their books on Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) as Kindle e-books, paperbacks, or both. Amazon's just-introduced print-on-demand paperback program will revolutionize the publishing industry by making it possible for new or experienced authors to publish quality paperback editions of their books without paying fees or printing costs.
Your Kindle e-book will be available on Amazon in about a dozen countries, including Canada, the USA and Great Britain, with royalties as high as 70%. Your Kindle paperback will be available in several countries, including the USA, with royalties of 60%. In both cases, you will decide the selling price. This is a new program and paperbacks are not yet listed on Amazon Canada, but they can be easily ordered on the US site for quick and inexpensive shipment to Canada.
I'm a best-selling author with experience in both traditional and online publishing, and I've helped a number of other writers to complete and publish their books. My fees are based on the job (not by the hour) and are very reasonable. To avoid surprises or misunderstanding, I have prepared a "menu" of the services I provide so clients can choose only what they want and need and will know the full cost in advance.
You should have at least a first draft of your book that you can email to me as a Word docx file. If you need help completing your book, tell me what you have now and I will tell you how I can help and what I would charge.
