Getting Started - How to Publish

After completing your account setup and preparing your book file, follow these steps to publish your polished, formatted manuscript:

  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 can take from 24 to 48 hours for your book to be available for purchase in the Kindle Store. If you already have a print edition of the same book title on Amazon, and the contributors match with your Kindle edition, we'll automatically link your books.

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