Proof and Author Copies

Proof and author copies differ from copies that are purchased directly from the Amazon website.

Proof copies feature a “Not for Resale” watermark and are intended as a test copy for you to review prior to submitting for publication. Proof copies do not have an ISBN or barcode printed on the back cover.

Author copies are prints of your live book offered to you at print cost. Author copies don’t include unpublished (draft) changes you’ve made on KDP.

You won’t receive any royalties for the purchase of a proof or author copy, and proof or author copy orders won’t appear in your KDP Reports. You’ll be able to view any past orders in your Amazon order history.
