Getting Started - How to Publish

Once you've completed your account profile, you'll need to upload a book file in one of our Supported Formats. For help formatting your book, see our Simplified Formatting Guide.

When you're ready:

  1. Log in to your account and go to your Bookshelf.
  2. Review the New Title Checklist for things you'll need, then click Create new title.
  3. Complete the fields in Step 1 (Your Book) and Step 2 (Rights & Pricing), including:


  4. When you've entered your required information, select the check box to confirm you have all rights necessary to publish your book, then click "Save and Publish."

It takes about 72 hours for your book to be available for purchase in the Kindle Store. If you already have a print edition of the same book for sale on Amazon and the title and contributors match with your Kindle edition, we'll automatically link your books with each other.

If you make any later changes to your book’s metadata (cover image, author name, etc.), it will take about 48 hours for your changes to display on the detail page. Changes are progressive and other parts of the detail page, such as customer reviews, may take longer to update.
