The Amazon Kindle is America’s revolutionary wireless reading device. It allows its owners to instantly download books and newspapers, but only books that have been submitted to the Amazon Kindle via the required process and in the required format are available for Kindle readers to purchase and enjoy. Kindle editions of books appear on Amazon.com (and now Amazon.co.uk) in search listings just like any other format (such as a hardback edition).
There are several benefits to having your book available in a Kindle Edition.
1. The Amazon Kindle edition will appear as another option to buy on your book’s sales page, which increases the chances of browsers becoming buyers.
2. Sales through the Amazon Kindle are not split with Outskirts Press. Amazon will take their share, as they always do, but your profit will be directly deposited into your checking account by Amazon, without any involvement by (or portion for) Outskirts Press. In other words, your Kindle sales are YOUR Kindle sales.
3. As Amazon is expanding the availability of Kindle editions (offering free Kindle apps for iPhone, Blackberry and Android users as well as PC and Mac users, and now the availability through Amazon.com.uk), Amazon customers and readers are growing every day. While the Kindle is a unique and revolutionary device designed to make reading more convenient, the majority of Amazon customers love actual BOOKS. A Kindle sale is an inexpensive way to offer your book to a potential reader; if they like it, they are more likely to purchase the paperback or hardback edition, too.
It’s easy! Regardless of whether you are self publishing with Outskirts Press or not, you can conveniently and securely get an Kindle edition for your book by clicking the big green button. We take care of everything for you! It could not be simpler.
