Have you written a book and would like to publish it without going through the headache of dealing with a publisher? You can do it with your Kindle. All you need to do is to sign up with Amazon’s Digital Text Platform (DTP), upload and format your book, and sell it at the kindle store …it’s that simple.
1. If you do not have an Amazon account, go to amazon.com and sign up. Once done, sign in and access the Digital Text Platform dashoard.
2. Configure you account information in the “My Account” tab on the Digital Text Platform dashboard to ensure that you get paid.
3. Publish your content by following the steps in this guide.
Uploading and converting your document
It’s important to note that Amazon DTP supports several document formats for uploading and conversion (HTML, unencrypted .mobi eBook files, Microsoft Word (.doc), plain text (.txt) and Adobe PDF)
The preferred format for uploading content is as a single HTML file. If you want to include images, you will need to provide a ZIP file that includes the images as well as the HTML file that refers to them (check the formatting guides to find out how to link to images from HTML). The HTML and image files all have to be in the same folder inside the zip file. For more info go here
