Free classic books are something that has a lot of appeal to modern readers and especially those that have recently returned to the books shelves after many years of absence. This article looks at how the new Amazon Kindle has made this possible with the new Kindle Direct publishing system.
Many Kindle publishers are now offering free Classic books as an incentive to writers looking to submit their work. A Kindle publisher offers free books as a way to entice readers to buy from the publisher rather than an individual writer or one-off author. In fact, a recent study found that a great number of readers are people who have just returned from a vacation or a period of time out of the house and so have just started reading books. Thus, this opens up a whole new market of potential buyers for new books which would otherwise not be there.
Amazon Publishing provides the publisher with an automated eBook delivery system which allows the publisher to send the ebooks directly to the users’ inboxes. As well as offering free books, many publishers offer the advantage of a royalty payment which is usually around 70 per cent of the selling price of the book.
One great aspect of the KDP programme is that most of the books are available at no cost and are made available on an automatic basis to all Kindle devices. Therefore if you have a Kindle, you can browse through titles that you think your reader may be interested in and then choose one that suits them.
By signing up with a KDP publisher, you can publish books in digital format which means that they are readable from the Kindle device, iPad or any other similar device. You will also be able to read these books in their original form and not have to worry about formatting the books which will mean that they can be read on almost any type of reader.
Kindle publishers will also be happy to provide you with an easy to use interface that is compatible with most popular browsers, allowing you to read the titles on your iPhone, iPad, Android phones and even on a computer. The interface is designed in such a way that you do not have to use much HTML knowledge to make the book look nice.
Many KDP publishers offer authors the ability to sell the books as ePub files, which is an electronic file format that is very similar to an eBook. and can be read on computers, iPhones, iPads and many other devices.
By using a KDP publisher you can also submit your book to a wide range of online bookstores such as Clickbank, where people can read the book immediately once purchased. Readers can then browse through titles on the web to find the titles they want and then download them directly into their Kindle device. You will even be able to share these books with others and share them with your friends.
In some cases you may also be able to have your book published in the traditional print format. However, you may not be able to make money from the book as it would take up to 4 weeks for your book to be sent to the printers. However, if you’re looking for an extremely quick way to make money from books, then this is probably a good option for you.
EBooks can also be sold to retailers who will either rent them out or sell them for a profit. Many of these retailers are willing to sell a wide range of different types of books including books and they usually have a vast inventory of titles for you to choose from.
If you want to sell books on Amazon, you need to have a good knowledge of how to set up an account and the format in which the book should be published. Once set up you will be able to upload your book to the Kindle, which will allow the reader to download the book straight to their Kindle device.
Once downloaded they can either buy the book or add it to their personal library, making it available to all their friends who own a Kindle. If they decide to purchase the book, they will then be able to read it on their Kindles.
