I would only want to use the first part of my book to make the videos from, around 80 pages on the subject of consciousness, but am I allowed to do this, would it break Amazon rules?
I only have my books with amazon and I'm in KU.
The book is 202 pages, the reason I want to do videos is because I've had more than one person tell me they like how I clearly detail consciousness in the first part of the book, which is about consciousness, quite a popular topic and increasing in popularity due to advancements in A.I.
The first part of the book is scientifically factual, I’m very science orientated, and as I, like many others, have a fascination for the subject, I’d like to put my pennies worth in the consciousness pot.
I’m planning on doing a few videos reading what I’ve written in the book, and then continuing with other information that was too extensive to put in that book.
Of course in the process I will be promoting the book, which is the 2nd one I’ve written.
So I need to know if amazon will allow me to do these videos or whether I’d been in breach of the rules about only having the book available on amazon?
You should probably contact KDP support for peace-of-mind, but since it's a sample I would expect it would be alright and on top of that it is a different format from the Kindle ebook. But that's only an opinion and not fact as I have never done it.
It's not an ebook, so there's no problem. (It would be even less of a problem if you weren't limited to Amazon. I'll never understand why people do that. You don't WANT sales on Apple, B&N, Google, Kobo?)
But I'm with RJ. I think 80 pages is going on far too long. Twenty pages is more like it.
When I gave readings, I liked to chat with the audience -- comment on what I'd just read. It kept people from falling asleep.
(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook. Each does one thing well and the other thing poorly.)
