Self Publish Kindle

self publish kindleIf you want to self publish on Kindle, there are many great advantages to doing so. What I like so much is that you can make changes to the content of your book at any time, which is great if you later see a typo or see a sentence which really annoys you!  You can also update your book to inform readers of any other books you wrote and include direct links in your updated book to where your other books can be found on Amazon so that if a reader likes your book, they are taken to a place where they can buy more.

You can change the price at any time and test the market to see which price point works best. In addition, if you publish exclusively on Amazon you can avail of their free promotion tools such as Kindle count down deals or free book promotions. See the types of merchandising tools you can avail of below.
