How to publish a textbook and other educational content on KDP


Textbooks and other educational material that are primarily text

Prepare your textbook or educational content, such as test prep, study aids, reference guides or training materials, using Microsoft Word or any similar program and submit your file to Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) for automatic conversion to a Kindle eBook. In addition to doc/docx, KDP also supports HTML, Mobi, ePub and other file formats listed here. Download the official publishing guide to learn more about preparing a professional-quality digital file of your book: Building Your Book For Kindle.

Textbooks and other educational material with complex content such as graphs, charts and equations

If your book includes more complex formatting like charts and graphs, sidebars or equations, a Print Replica digital book may be better suited to your content. Use Kindle Create to convert a PDF file into a Print Replica digital book. Print Replica offers customers an exact replica of the printed page and is designed for educational content that is graphically rich with complex content. Print Replica may not be available on all Kindle supported devices. For more information on Print Replica and supported devices: About Kindle Print Replica.

Kindle Create allows you to create Print Replica digital books from your PDF files and also has the ability to add interactive content like audio, video, and image pop-ups. Use the links below to download the tool for Mac or PC or learn more about Kindle Create.
